I recommend Cassia to friends in Singapore (but I would say better for couples) as this resort has much cool looking graffiti all around the compound and feels very young with energetic vibes. The resort is considered new as it is finished in August 2017. All the furniture and rooms looks new and very clean and tidy. As for an ocean view room The staffs at the front desk are very polite and knowledgeable. There is also a bus to pick you up from ferry terminal. The beach areas and pool were well maintained by staff who are very attentive. They have a monthly event of releasing babies turtle back to the sea which is so cool.
