    1. I couldn’t agree more. I am shocked and stunned at the state of a so called quality hotel and staff behaving in such a way.

      I’ll certainly be telling anyone I know expecting to travel to Bali not to HK anywhere near this death trap.

  1. This is an outrageous safety malpractice by the Minor Group and the resort management. The fact that they still charged the guest for a three night stay and refuse to discuss their negligence with injured guest is an added insult added to injury. The Management of the resort and the Minor Group should be ashamed of themselves. No tourists should stay at this resort until this is resolved in full!

    Worst of all, the silence from the Minor Group is deafening. The Minor Group is directly connected to this hotel! I can’t believe the Minor Group supports this type of poor standards and as result this poor guy almost died!
