Laguna Redang Island Resort
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Pulau Redang
Reviewed February 21, 2007

My fiance proposed to me on our first night in Laguna resort. That was a really romantic night and we had a sea view room. The room was just simply awesome. It's spacious, well decorated and very clean. We also had our own balcony where we could watch the sea and chit chat! The beach is beautiful but the snorkelling session we had was not impressive at all. We didn't see much fish and were cramped into a small boat to be taken to the sea. Further, the crowd that day was massive and noisy. The restaurant serves nice and hot buffet but somehow we juz felt we couldn't get much privacy. We had to line up in this massive queue like school children to get our food. During the last day of our stay, my fiance suggested to have our meal in another restaurant to avoid the queue. But we only found out there was only one ala carte restaurant at the lobby in the entire resort. Nevertheless, I would say we really enjoyed our stay in this resort. The room was nice and cosy. There was also a small bar that serves very nice cocktail and at night a good live band on the beach. Laguna redang resort, in short, a good place to have your lie in and wake up to a warm and beautiful beach. A brillliant place to unwind.

We should have realised how it was going to be when we were waiting for the boat to take us out to the island. You go to an arrivals hall & get a boarding pass for you & your luggage before boarding the boat. Once you arrive at the resort jetty you are herded into an arrival hall for a "welcome speech" where it soon becomes clear this is not a holiday resort where you can suit yourself.

This place is so structured, breakfast is served until 9.30am (I'm on holiday!!) lunch is from 12 - 2pm & dinner from 7-9.30pm. If you miss any of these times there is a small local foodstall on the site that opens at 5pm otherwise you will go hungry. The food in the buffet restaurant resembled a poor eat all you like chinese buffet with lukewarm bland food. We were hoping to get a taste of malaysian culture here but failed to find it. We had the option of a la carte on the package we booked & after a couple of days admitted defeat & ordered a la carte for lunch & dinner every day. They do a barbeque every other night, it was like a chicken satay feeding frenzy on these nights, I have never seen so many people consume so much satay, they must have been starving.

The pool here is great but very popular with all the children, who all seem to swim in life jackets? We decided to do one of the boat trips that was included in the package & regretted it as they make you arrive at the jetty half an hour before the boats go to wait for a health & safety lecture. It then transpired that 4 boats from the Laguna were doing the same trip to an island where the turtles lay their eggs (I'm sure they love the boats full of tourists) & another 3 boats from a neighbouring resort, so all in all there were about 250 people in the sea . Not really the chilled snorkelling trip we had in mind. However we then realised that all the kids go on these trips & its a good time to hang out at the pool as they all disappear for a few hours when the trips are on.

After 3 days we asked to leave & were told it was not possible as there were no seats on any airlines to KL & the hotel wouldn't refund us so we had to stay, we then had the fortune to notice another couple eating a steamer (soup based dish with vegetables, fresh fish, seafood, meats & noodles) & were able to order one with 24 hours notice. They really should advertise these on the menu, it was fantastic. The best thing we ate all week. The drinks at the bar were overpriced & small measures & the service was painfully slow.

The beach was beautiful & worth having a walk around the headland to see the other resorts if you tire of the Laguna. We checked out the karaoke & disco one night & realised everyone was taking it far too seriously so we left after a drink.

We booked a premier seaview as this was all that was supposed to be available on the dates we travelled, the only difference with this room was a larger balcony & not worth the extra cost as the balcony is covered so you wouldn't use it during the day anyway. There were 5 tv channels, 3 malaysian, 1 of very olf films & documentaries that were dubbed/edited at the hotels discretion & the last channel was a video of the hotel & facilities that just loops & loops 24/7. The room was cleaned 3 times a day with clean towels every time & a turndown service in the late afternoon. The housekeeping was good.

If you are travelling with children & looking for a structured holiday with a timetable to follow this might suit you. Otherwise I'm inclined to say it bore more than a passing resemblance to Butlins in the South China Sea.
