Well, what can I say? This place is great.
We flew from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terrenganu with Air Asia. There was a shuttle bus that took us to the jetty for the boat trip to the island.
Upon arrival, we had a welcome cocktail while our luggage was taken care of. Because everyone arrives at the same time, the check-in was very busy. However, as our baby daughter was very tired, we asked if we could skip the queue. The staff were discreet and very accommodating - another staff member was drafted in to help us immediately.
The hotel's main building has a lobby bar, reception, a la carte restaurant (didn't eat there). Upstairs is the main buffet restaurant. Good food with good selection that changes every day.
There is a beach front bar and a few meters away is the More More Tea shop that is a mini-supermarket and souvenir shop. Tip: buy your cans of soft drink here: there are much cheaper than the bars.
There's a separate building for recreation activities. You have to get a lifejacket here for the free snorkelling trips. Tip: take the snorkelling trip in the morning to the marine park. Here you can see a kazillion fish of all shapes, colours and sizes. It's on an island and is suitable for all ages and swimming abilities. The afternoon trip is in the open sea.
You can snorkel directly in front of the hotel and see some nice fish. However, if you walk left from the hotel just around the headland, there is fantastic snorkelling. I saw squid, cuttle fish, lots of colourful fish whose name I don't know, sea cucumbers, eels, and more.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. We had a garden view room and it was definitely quieter than the other areas, yet just one row back from the beach.
On the beach and at the swimming pool, there are sun loungers. You can hire free towels and cushions by the pool.
The staff are extremely friendly and will do anything for you.
If you want to relax in an amazing atmosphere, come here!
