"A Castle in the Forest"
Like the title of this review suggests, the appearance of the Palace Hotel is like that of a bright-white castle on the outside, with forest surrounding at least one half of its complex. Inside it's beautiful, from the sparkling black tile floors of the reception hall to the modern furnishings in the bedroom. The place was very clean, and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. In fact, there was an error with our booking, so we were upgraded to a slightly better room - free of charge - one with a window and a direct view of the forest. The pool area was clean and comfortable, and there was sufficient shade to hide from the blazing sun. Next to the pool is a gym, a small bar, and changing rooms with steam rooms. We paid a little extra when we booked in order to get the buffet breakfasts in the dining hall, which were versatile and tasty; a mixture of Continental, Western and Eastern-style foods, as well as juice, tea, coffee, cakes, and waffles. On our final day it wasn't possible for us to attend the buffet due to our early-morning flight, so instead room service organised breakfast to be sent to our room at 4:30am. Excellent.

"Gorgeous jungle resort."
Stayed at Bunga Raya for 2 nights with a friend. We had a deluxe villa which was much larger than expected. We had requested twin beds on booking and unfortunately arrived to 1 large bed, however this was quickly taken care of when discussed with hotel staff. The resort is built into the mountains in a very unobtrusive way and is much larger than it looks. There's a lovely pool but it is situated on a beautiful beach which was pristine during our visit. We snorkelled in the coral reef just off the shore of the resort and saw hundreds of fish and coral. Spa facilities are very good and we had some excellent treatments. My only criticism is that the bathroom shutters don't completely shut off from the outside so the bathroom is always humid and there were a few insects, however this didn't hamper our enjoyment of the resort. Would definitely recommend, we thought it was close to paradise!

"Great Hotel"
You get what you pay for at this hotel and then some more. The staff are really friendly and helpful which meant we actually went back and stayed another night a few days later. Rooms are nice, simple but with a flat screen tv and tea and coffee etc. They have us a free ride to the airport which was great and is included as part of the room price! Perfect! Also, we had a great breakfast for only 5 RM which included tea, coffee, Juice and a choice of 4-5 dishes that that cook there and then for you. Bargain! There ain't really anything around the area, a few restaurants and shops but this is perfect for a first and last night stay near to the airport.

"Satisfied"
The hotel is a little remote from the city but if you have your own car, it shouldn't be a problem. I stayed in the 2-bedroom spa suite and it was really good! The suite was huge and the bedrooms were comfortable. The spa-suite and villa side is a bit far from the main wing but they have free shuttle service to send you to and fro the main wing. Overall, my stay was very satisfying.

"Always a good nights sleep"
The rooms were very clean and comfy and with 2 free bottles of water every day and very friendly staff, how can u complain. U can call for a taxi at reception and it arrives in under 60 seconds as taxis wait at the side of the hotel. I'm glad I chose this over other hotels and I would stay there again had I not be getting an apartment there.
