“A decent trip :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

I went to Pulau Lang Tengah for the first time on 23rd-25th May 2012, whereby me and my friend took a fullboard 3D2N package.

The island was beautiful and clean. Snorkeling was not that fun, I had seen better view in its sister islands i.e. Perhentian and Redang.

Food was awful especially on the first day, but then you got what you paid.

Accomodation was too basic for my liking, but then again, you got what you paid.

This is the first time I went to P. Lang Tengah. There are total of 25 ppl in this trip, it's a big group of us. We went there for 3 days and 2 nites.

First of all, the resort had arranged a bus for us, to and from the resort. This is really convenient for us as we dont need to think how to get there. Maybe this can be done as we are in a large group but yet, my point is they are willing to make this kind of arrangement.

Next is about the rooms. Well, for all of us, we are comfortable with the rooms condition. We spend less time in the room coz we are having a lot more time at the beach, snorkelling, etc.

About facilities, you wont feel boring in the resort at nite. There is KTV room, pub, table pool game and TV. You can also rent beach ball, mahjong and tables provided. One thing is that you need to share these facilities with the other tourists there but this cant be avoided unless you book the whole resort rite?

About the food, well, all of us were impressed for the food provided especially the first day we reached there. It really tastes nice and there is a lot of variety for you to choose, from chicken, fish, fishball, soup, vege and fruits! We dont expect so many food provided and again, it's tasty! For the next 2 days, more and more tourists are coming and the food was finished before the dining time. But the staffs here immediately cook some food for us who didnt eat yet. So, no need worry about nothing to eat as long as it's dining time. They provide breakfast, lunch, teatime and dinner here. If you want supper, there are burger selling in the resort too.

Activity here, mainly is snorkelling and jungle trekking. We went snorkelling for 2 times and jungle trekking for 1 time. For snorkelling, it's fun. The sea here is not yet polluted so the view is really good. For jungle trekking, it's extremely cool! As we took the route that led us to a more beautiful view! We reach the site which full of rocks after coming out from the jungle. Climbing those rocks (which is a bit dangerous, but really worth trying as you will feel the contentment) and standing on the rock and looking towards the sea, it's just wonderful!! Of course, you can choose to have your own free activity here like playing beach ball, looking stars at nite and the seaside and many more. Also, the workers here are also friendly and nice.

My conclusion here, if you are seeking a place for you to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, this resort in Pulau Lang Tengah is surely one of your choice! You will be amazed by the crystal clear sea water and beautiful blue sky here! Come to see the beauty of this place with your own eyes! Cameras can never capture the same view as what you see with your own eyes! =)

been there 5times :) relax and not crowded at all. Avoid going there on weekends and public holidays, thats is my only advise..experience once on late check in due to low tide....reached the resort at 1330.....well,it cant be avoided.well explained by the boatman on the situation.

All the staffs,from the lady working at the check in counter to the beachboy, to the cook and helper to the hsekeeping lady are all very friendly and they do remember my name on my 2nd trip there. Feels so welcome.regards to the black face or whatever face u guys are mentioning,im so sorry guys,im totally disagree on that!!.sometimes it depends how u guys communicate.

Food wise..mmmm...agreed on the refill part but hey,if u just follow on the timing thingy...there wont be any problem....i knw its BUFFET but atleast the guest should took the amount of food that they can finish and not because they paid and they have the right to do whatever they want...

Room-its fine for me and my friends because we did not stay in the room much...fyi,we are on holiday so,its not an issue for us.as long there's bed n toilet, its fine for us.we left the room at 7am for breakfast and only back to the room at 6pm for shower before dinner.after dinner,we chill at the bar till 2am then went to bed.same routines on our 4d3n stay.aircond,fan,shower,sink are all working perfectly.

Based on my own experience and my friends couldn't have agree with me more.

Read the review and go in with your eyes open. We had 2 nights here and did not expect too much and were pleasantly surprised. We got a private boat from Perhentian island to Lang Tengah, arranged by the resort... no hassles.. MYR400. The approach to the beach was tropically perfect with palm trees overhanging the beach, there is a really good jetty built to the left of the bay, but no one uses it unless it is low tide as too far for tourists to walk?? ... the resort itself is narrow and goes back from the beach a fair way, hence any views are saved for the eating balcony, and the rooms are towards the back..
Meals times are somewhat rigid and you do need to be there promptly. our first day ( we were the only westerners), the guests were more 'elderly chinese' we suspected, hence they seemed to not be shy in helping themselves to large servings our second day, there had been a changeover and the guests seemed younger and less desperate to take all the food, it was a little more leisurely, but better to get there earlier than later for meal times... the food was prepared in bulk with little finesse, the second day was a bbq, with fish and MUTTON... :)

our rooms were adequate and the bathroom somewhat tired to say the least, 2 beds and nothing else, but a/c a bonus.. the san pacifica up the beach was a welcome respite the second night for a nice (but expensive) bottle of wine, RLIR did serve beer but no wine...

The water was very clear and the reef and fish were excellent, .... we did one of the snorkling boat trips along with 50 other people, everyone wore life jackets to snorkle except us, we had never seen such a sight before... the boat took us right around the island, virtually back to our resort ( and nearly broached once), good snorkling at the first stop, We saw a reef shark and many fish we then stopped on the reef in front of d.coconut resort, give those 2 that sde of the island a miss, not a good reef either we did find a moray eel but a lot of dead coral there.. best reef between redang lang resort and sari pacifica

Saw, the scuba diver was patient and a good teacher... he doubled as the barman at night
The Karaoke room was great fun and we joined in and as the only westerners were given a very enthusiatic welcome and ovation at the end...we were made to feel VERY welcome
the next day everyone took photos us the mad Ozzie couple from the karaoke bar.....

2 days was long enough, and it was a great cultural experience,

Room Tip: we had A01, it was a single storey, semi detached, most rooms were in 2 floor blocks that had guest...

I went to Lang Island with my family from Sept17-19,2011. I booked a package from an agent. The price is 325MYR/person.

The overall experience with this resort is all right, before I go, I did a lot of research, the only luxury resort is next to this one. Basically you get what you paid for! I am happy about the price I paid and the service I received.

Someone will meet us at the jetty, when we arrived on the island. staff came to greet us and introduced the island to us.

The room is very basic but you are on holidays on an island, you won't stay inside all the time, will you?

Not many people here so the beach is quiet and nice! A chinese movie was just shot not far from Redang resort so you can still see the house/scene built up for the movie which are quite nice and romantic!

The snorkelling trip offered by Redang lang resort is great! We saw a lot of fish and really enjoyed ourselves

So if you want a quiet stay in the beach, Lang island is a better choice than redang island, of course, the more you pay, the better service you will get! I am happy about what I paid for, so overall 4 star for my stay.

Me and my friends just return from vacation there on 16-18 Sept.
Overall it was OK given the price paid for full board 3D2N (RM 350 / USD 110)


Transport
------------
We paid extra RM30 / USD10 for transport to the jetty. It was supposed to be bus/van with aircond but we were greeted with an old van with windows down. The journey took almost 40 mins. At the jetty, we took an hour ride of speedboat to the resort. Our speedboat stranded in the middle of the sea for 30 due to some technical problem. Piece of advise, get some seasick med beforehand just in case.

Food
-------
Buffet style food is served at time scheduled. Breakfast 700am - 8.30am Lunch 1200pm - 130pm. Teatime 400pm-500pm. Dinner 600pm - 730pm. Food was ample and they keep refilling. Edible but still have lots of room for improvement. Alternate BBQ dinner (only additional of BBQ fish and lamb). Free flow tea/coffee and toast available from 700am to 700pm.

Accomodation
------------------
Budget resort with bearable cleanliness. The room that we had consist of 2 queen size bed, 0.5 HP aircond, ceiling fan and water heater. No cabinet, no TV, no kettle, no iron and no hair dryer. Do not expect room service and change of clean towel during your stay. Power will be cut off for few seconds at 7am, 2pm, 7pm.
The only complain was that we saw a 30cm black lizard and a palm size spider in the room on our second night!! That kept us awake all night long as they hide below the bed and we couldn't chase them away. Maybe we were just unlucky, hopefully the other rooms were better.

Snorkeling
-------------
Additional RM30 / USD 10 for goggle and life jacket. Depart from the resort at 200pm daily. You can opt not to join. Roughly 2 hours for the whole snorkeling trip as they will need to rush back by 400pm for teatime.

Nightlife
----------
There are some board games, mahjong and pool table for rental. Free karaoke at 830pm to 1200am. There is a mini bar there too with some not-so-shabby music to keep you entertained. A walk at the beach or night snorkel would be a good choice too. There is another resort 100m away which have another bar (Sari Pacifika). A small TV lounge but with only certain channels.

Overall it was an adventurous and relaxing trip. Will be back next time for diving course. :)

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor. Its cleaner.

OVERALL:
I had a wonderful holiday in Lang Tangah island with 3 of my friends on July 2011. Fantastic beach with white sand, breeze and crystal clear water! We felt so peaceful and happy just looking at the sea...We got a good offer at Match Matta Fair to stay in Tengah Lang Resort.

RESORT:
This is not really a resort, but a Chalet/ "Rumah Atap" (Malay Village House) type. Do not expect too much on the room or food. Anyway, it is still comfortable for us (4 girls) to stay.

When we reached the resort, the staff gave us a detail briefing before we entered our room. The power will be cut-off for few twice per day due to the switching power getset, just a small issue. The room equipped with air-cond, fan, 2 queen size bed and soap. No TV, no dressing table and wardrobe provided. Anyway, you can hang your wet swimming suit, life jacket and snorkeling mask outside the room.

Besides breakfast, lunch and dinner included in our package, (do not expect too much on the variety and taste of food) they provided free-flow tea, coffee and bread with butter and butter which we enjoyed very much. We spent plenty of time with our girl talk in the restaurant ^_^

ACTIVITY:
2 rounds of snorkeling and 1 jungle trekking for our 3 D 2N stay, and they took us to go 2 different area (around the island) for each snorkeling. Saw a lot of people playing volleyball and board game. At night, you can drink beer at the bar counter, watch TV with Astro at the public living hall, or sing Karaoke. A hawker stall was selling super tasty Keropok Lekoh and burger, Must TRY!

BEACH:
Beautiful coral and fishes! You can even see turtle and baby shark if lucky enough! (snorkeling in front of resort). We enjoyed the Breathtaking Sea View after reaching the destination of jungle trekking! But the coral in front of all resorts (included other resort) are mostly dead and turn to white) We were told that If apply too many sunblock, the chemical ingredient will cause the death of carol and marine life...

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach boy even lead us to snorkel in nice area, help us to took plenty of beautiful photos and brought us to find "Blue Sand" at midnight, around 12.30am...Wonderful experience!!

If you do not have much concern about the quality of room or food, it was a nice chalet to stay. Just relax and enjoy the water activities, or just resting on the beach for sunbathing is good enough for us.
