Although general floor space may be minimal in some rooms, they make up for it in amenities. And for 20 ringgit extra per person, a hearty breakfast is included. Beds are large and have a comfortable bounce to them and the en suite hot water baths are well lit, letting you see every spotless corner. With a flat screen TV, mini fridge, armoire, electric kettle and a small table and chairs, you are all set. Add in WiFi access in the rooms and this is a great place to hunker down on a mini-working vacation. They also have mini-verandas facing the area’s surrounding greenery and their colourful on-site restaurant, Cactus.

The newest addition carries the 'cactus' theme in a more subtle way.

Cactus is a popular open-air restaurant that’s been serving up Western and Malay cuisine for years. Located directly across from the Holiday Villa Resort, their eclectic decor has become rather shrine-like as patrons lovingly leave mementos of themselves (or of their favourite football team) behind as ‘thanks for the memories’ parting gifts.

Nothing beats an excellent room at a bargain price.

Being a new build, the landscaping at Cactus Inn has not quite caught up with the grounds’ surrounding foliage but there is still plenty of shade on hand to keep things cool in addition to the onshore sea breezes — in fact you may not even need the air-con.

Their location is convenient to traveller needs, and aside from the on-site restaurant, laidback reggae-style pub, One Love, is just next door and the T-Shoppe minimart, a one-stop shop stop for beer, snacks and sundries is just a short stroll down the road.

Although walk-in rates will be your best bargain, phone owner Mr Lip ahead of time to get a heads up on availability.
