Vacation to Aryani Terengganu during Monsoon

Hi there... need some tips..

I am planning for a vacation to Aryani Resort Terengganu on the December and just realized that it falls on Monsson season. Is it fine to be there during the Monsoon or does the Monsoon season impact the resort in any ways. I'm quiet worried about that.

Well i guess it won't be so bad since the resort is loacted at the coastal and not in island.

For travellers who was at Aryani during the Monsoon season, plz do spare your experience...

Thanxx ya...

Hi Santhi, though I have stayed in Aryani, but not during the monsoon season. However, I have been to the East Coast during the month of December, and frankly, unless you wish to spend your time in the room, monsoon in East Coast is really monsoon-where there were days, we had a whole day spoiler- heavy downpour in the late evenings, and when we woke up in the morning, it was still raining.

The ocean waves is also very choppy and high tides.

Then unless, some of 9MP projects are for better irrigation and drainage in these states, low lying areas were also flooded.

On one visit, whilst on the way to KT, we stopped in Kijal for lunch, and it was drizzling, overcast, and very high winds. When we approached KT, just after the floating mosque, sun came out, then few minutes later, droplets of rain returned.

We did not even have an opportunity to stroll along the beach or even take a dip in the pool.

Having said so, I still visit the East Coast during the monsoon, as now there is the monsoon cup where Tanjung Jara at Kuala Dungun does play host to the participants and sponsors in meeting their accommodation needs, and despite the strong winds and choppy seas, just sitting in the public lounge or your room, absorbed in some reading materials, can be rather relaxing.

Tip-if you are a light sleeper, bring some ear plugs, to silence the heavy rain against the roof top .

So it was Tanjung Jara Resort during the monsoon, and whislt we enjoyed seeing them battling in the choppy seas, we also enjoyed the Spa(which Aryani also has), playing chess or some board games, having afternoon naps, waking up for tea, then spa, and listening to the rain drops- a totally different experience.

If you are driving on the East Coast Highway, and if it is raining, be careful with your speed-prone to hydroplanning.
