“Best resort in town! Impressive with the traditional architectural style.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2010

Went there with their internet offer on their website at RM248++ which to me are great deals!

Stayed in the normal deluxe Serambi Chalet and love the the traditional elements in the architecture. Look just like on website. Great size room and bathroom (with both rainshower & bathtub). As usual for most hotels & resorts in Malaysia, maintenance work could have been done better but still impressed with the overall outlook of the resort.

Also the site of Monsoon Cup.

Only 1 restaurant called Verandah available with good settings, however, service could be better. Breakfast included daily (set menu or a la carte where u order any items from the menu which is good and buffet the other day when there are many guests there for the World Jet Ski Championships).

Unfortunately, might be due to low season, the Gondola Service from resort across the river to city centre where one finds the Pasar Payang is not available. However, a free shuttle service provided to bring us to & fro the town centre of Kuala Terengganu which is only a short distance away.

From what have seen around the Kuala Terengganu, this seem to be the best hotel resort even though it is slightly further away from the centre of Kuala Terengganu. Definitely for those who wants a bit of luxury and comfort with a traditioonal feel!

Stayed February 2010, traveled with family

Really nice being there with my families. After my touch down at Terengganu airport, we took a cab. Nothing special at first since there's only a village scenery on our left and right side. Then, when it comes to their resort, waaahhhh, they have an incredible view, clean, exclusive, privacy, etc. When the cab stopped at the lobby, their staff quickly entertain me by picking up bags, show me the check in counter and entertain my childs. Then, they send me to my room by using buggy. Their room was so great, spacious, comfortable, clean, equipped with not just plasma tv but also a mini hi-fi. Their balcony is bigger than my own bedroom at KL. A few minutes after that, their staff send us some fruits as a gift from the hotel.
In the evening, I spend my time at their playground and swimming pool. The environment was so nice. You will not find any rubbish in the whole area even as small as cigarettes. The wind from the South China Sea blowing softly. I've tried their "gondola" - boat. They just charge about RM6 per head for that to go to Crystal Mosque.
Food at their restaurant was so delicious. During breakfast, a lot of menus being served. There's about 8 main course just for breakfast such as Nasi Dagang, Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Kuew Tiaw Goreng, Mee Curry etc. If you're going to Terengganu, please don't miss this hotel. And once you stay there, for sure, you will feel like a king staying in a palace.

We were very pleasantly surprised checking in the Ri-Yaz heritage what a great service. We stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms are big, clean and the most comfortable bed in Malaysia. Friendly staff and amazing swimming pool. Lot to see in Kuala Terrenganu, market, Mosque, Museum, palace. Restaurant has very good food for lunch and diner. Breakfast is also good sometimes buffet and a la carte (depends on nr off guests). The only minus is that there is no possibillity to buy alcohol, not in the restaurant but could not fun it in supermarket either. Because this area is Moslim and the hotelowner is the state this rule cannot be different for tourists. That could be a problem for no-moslim tourists.Its easy to go in town by watertaxi !!.

We spent two nights at the Resort, it has a very nice lobby with a nice veranda overlooking the sea. The Afternoon Tea was very good, lots of typical English and Malaysian food.
The rooms are more like a house, very roamy, clean, large bathroom!!l
The sevice was rxcellent, they also brought us to the city by boat and we visited The Crystal Mosque and Parks, real experience for us, you could see all the famous mosques in the world.
The restaurant serves wonderfull food.
