Very Good8.0
Very good beach hotel.
I had originally made a bad review of the place. There was a significant delay in checking in at the hotel, and my room at first did not have AC, which put me in a fowl mood I will admit, and made my first impressions very negative. However, after sleeping in the room and staying there the entire next day, my reaction changed. The first thing to understand is that this is a beach hotel. It may be 5 stars, but that is not 5 stars in a city. It is 5 stars on a beach where family, kids, and general mayhem abounds. So while the room was a (bit) worn and dated, after I accepted that the hotel was all and all fairly nice. It was right on the water, it had a wonderful pool, the breakfast buffet was standard breakfast buffet food, but the fine dinning restaurant there was really a 1 star Michelin restaurant, even though it was not scored as such. I never left the property, except to go to the airport. Everything was contained. A few points - the AC does not work if you open the balcony doors - not unacceptable, but still not the best ; the hotel bar is not open until 2 pm; make reservations at the fine dinning place in the hotel - by western standards its super cheap for what you get.

Lovely stay at the Rasa
We had a wonderful stay at the Rasa. We stayed at the relatively new Rasa wing on the ground floor garden terrace, so the room was exceptionally better with a garden porch. The check-in and check-out service was very good. The Rasa wing pool was quiet compared to the other pools...great for relaxation. Love their afternoon tea and cocktail hour which they have every day at 2pm and 4pm respectively. You have 2 choices for breakfast venues - at the Ferringhi Grill which is a la carte or the buffet spread at the Spice Market Cafe. Tried both on different mornings and food was tasty. Overall, we loved it at the Rasa and would go back again.
