Unique shape of cottages
Featuring unique and artistic bungalows set facing the sea and surrounded by green trees, guests will be delighted to stay in these cosy cottages.
Guests can choose the type of the room appropriate to their needs. There are deluxe and superior rooms, as well as cottages for families. A unique type of cottage is the bungalows that are shaped like a ship. They measure 60 - 90 square metres (646 - 969 square feet). The family suites called the Duyung Suite, Marlin Suite, and Paus Suite are cottages with 2 floors. Paus Suite (whale suite) is shaped like a whale’s head. One of the family suites is shaped like a jellyfish.
They offer several options for views, which include beach views, park views, or lake views. Each cottage gives privacy for every guest and has its own parking space and yard.
Cottage amenities for guests
The guest rooms feature beautiful ocean views and peaceful vistas of a calm lake and green parks. All en-suite rooms are equipped with a direct dial telephone, TV, minibar, air-conditioning, balcony or terrace, and a bathroom with a shower. For family cottages with 2 floors, they provide 2 beds for kids downstairs and 1 bed upstairs for parents.
To spoil guests, the hotel boasts Nyiur Resto and Cafe serving food and beverages from traditional local fare to Asian and Western cuisine. The hotel serves breakfast, and there is a set menu for lunch and dinner. Breakfast and dinner is only included if you’re staying at the cottage on weekends.
If you order food from the restaurant to enjoy at your cottage, a server will deliver the food to you on a bike because the cottages are spread across an area of 7 hectares (17 acres). It takes real skills to ride a bike with one hand, while the other carries a tray full with the food that you ordered!
