Hasn’t Changed with Ownership Change

Posted on Posted in Guest Reviews

“We have just returned after 4 years for a 3 night stay and the Mathis Retreat is just as beautiful as it was when it was Kenanga. Many of the staff are the same and are delightful.
This time we stayed in a bungalow instead of a deluxe room and it was beautiful. You don’t have the rice paddy views from the bungalow but they are only a few steps away from either the pool or restaurant.
The included breakfast was delightful. We only ate at the Terracotta restaurant twice this time other than breakfast each day. This visit we found some of the menu items not available which was a shame. I also found my favourite cocktails were not available because of a missing liquor. The only other changes I noticed were no “”happy hour”” which was a little disappointing and no complimentary afternoon tea which I had previously found to be a lovely touch. These small things are not enough to deter me from staying at this beautiful place and I have in fact already booked a return visit.
If you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful place to stay that is situated amongst the rice paddies then Mathis Retreat is the answer. Absolutely love it.”
