Tanjung Rhu Resort (TRR) brought back many wonderful memories for both my husband and I. It was the first luxury, 5-star resort that we stayed. We went there 7 years ago, in awe and a little "uncomfortable" of the service that we got from them. Maybe it's because we were a young couple with a small bank balance then. We could only afford a night stay, and had only one meal at the resort - the buffet breakfast that came with our package! I vividly remember walking past Rhu (french fine-dining restaurant with awesome view), took a look at their menu, and were scared off by their sky-high prices.
Coming back again made me realize how much we have progressed. In a way, it was like walking down memory lane for us, recalling what it was like 7 years ago, when we were still struggling a little more to make a living. My mind stopped momentarily and I can't help counting the many blessings that I had in my life. I should be contented with what I have..... easier said than done.
This time we paid for the all-inclusive package. We had unlimited access to all the 3 restaurants in the resort - Sands (asian food), Saffron (mediteranean-could not afford the last time) and Rhu, plus the 24 hours in-room dining. I strongly recommend this package, truly value for money - my girls were thrilled that they could have all the chips, chocolates, nuts and drinks from the room minibar, were able order anything they like by the pool, by the beach, in the reading room, in the games room, etc.
We had a romantic dinner for two at Rhu yesterday as the girls wanted room service while watching the DVDs that they borrowed from the Reading Room. We were lucky to get a table fronting the Andaman sea at the upstairs balcony of the restaurant, and was captivated by the sunset view. Stunning, huh?
