Hotel Aston Belitung and Fun at Tj Kelayang Beach, Belitung Island, Indonesia

That evening after dinner, we check-in to Hotel Aston in Belitung. It was very grand and new. In fact it was so new that that it haven't had its official opening ceremony yet.


There were Welcome drinks near the reception . I took some drinks for my new friends while Papa and Mamarazzi do the check-in procedure.

That was when something gone wrong. They tried to charge Mamarazi's card twice but it seems that their line was not working. It was offline and asked us to pay cash. Papa said they can do offline transaction, right?  The staff at the reception did not know how to perform offline transaction and said he will just take down the detail and will do the transaction when the line is up again. 

Got another headache when she came back to Malaysia and found the bank had text her saying that there have been two transaction recorded in her account. 


It's really weird...the toilet at the lobby is already so tiny and they put a big trash bin in it. How la people wanna move ...can't even sit at the throne leh.

Mamarazzi end up pushing the trash bin out of the toilet in order to close the door.

Arriving our room, sound that the wall outside was not finished properly yet.

Mamarazzi had to asked Papa help to get the hand held shower head from up there. Why put it so high?

She was surprised to find two bottles of complimentary bottles of drinking water in the bathroom instead of the mini bar.

Well...guess all these are just teething problems of a very new hotel lah. Mamarazzi had wrote in and highlighted it in their main website as the website of Aston Hotel Belitung was not up then that time. Hopefully the Management will take note. Guess no news is good news?

But over all the room was comfortable and spacious. It  was overlooking the infinity pool and the sea. Thus, if we open the balcony door, the place would be windy. Nice.

Got up very early the next morning.

I was waiting for my new friends to visit. Wanna play with them in the infinity pool. Hmmm...now seems infinity Pool is the "in" thing.

During breakfast, saw many visitor went and have a look at the Infinity Pool

Where are they? Why so late?

yay! They are here. I had fun having breakfast by the pool and playing with my friends.

After that we went to visit Uncle Anton's home. Supposed to to have lunch there but since it was such a nice day,  he said why not go for a picnic lunch at the beach?

Off we went to the beach. This round we went to Tanjung Kelayang beach. Gosh....what a lovely beach. The view was great and the water...wow!!!

Uncle Anton's wife certainly had out done herself. So many dishes, Grilled fish, gulai, squid , vegetable and even crabs!! so big and juicy crabs!

So many dishes till I don't know where to start.

The place was really like a scene out of the movie la. Gosh....I can play all day here.

Adoi...Mamarazzi forgotten to bring anti mozzie cream for me. While I was eating, those insect feeding on me pulak. But being me, i don't feel itchy at all...at least not when I was busy playing la. One week after coming home baru I start to feel itchy la.

Mamarazzi asked me if I wanna go to the beach again...of course YES!. I didn't have enough time at the beach leh. Coz very soon the adults said it's evening already. Want to go see sunset at another side of the island pulak......

  5. Eh, very kepala pening one when there's issues with credit cards and all.. Especially transactions involved during overseas trip.. So now how? Charged twice... Pay once only lor.. The other one, let the bank settle la.. But I think it would take a long time and it will remain in the statement for a long time one.. This kinda thing ahh, they always dilly-dally..

    Fuiyoh, J boy sitting on the beach chair and admiring the pool like tai-low like that... Very tarn-sai-kai punya face.. The pool looks very high class la.. I bet the water was cold too? To me hor, it doesn't look like a pool wor.. It looks like a beach leh, so big and wide like that..

    OMG, Uncle Anton's wife (and himself) are really good hosts.. They really jaga you all and treat you guys like VIP leh.. Wait, this time didn't hear you mention abt the clans geh? Where are all his clans? Haha.. Wow, I think it takes a long time to cook all these food, and I think she really puts her heart into it.. Food cooked with love, yummeh.. Picnic somemore timm, syiok dou..

  15. Some of the hotels I've been in had their free bottled water in the bathroom. Maybe they took the term "water closet" literally, haha.

  16. Interesting that they can't spare more space for the toilets considering there's so much land over there.

  19. That's the problem with new hotel la.

    Usually before launched, then the hotel rate is lower to compensate any problems that might arise. You guys get a good deal at the hotel, I hope?
