There is no doubt that the beach and marine life is fantastic but what a shame that hotels like Laguna caters towards mass tourism. For those looking for peace and quiet, the Laguna or any of the other resorts along this strech of the beach is NOT recommended. Blaring music whole day & night long(up to midnight!!), karaoke and the millions of tourist were a horror. And there is NO WAY you can run away from the horrific sound of techno!
Meal times was not a pleasure as we were seated amongst the hundreds of other noisy tourist which felt more like a chicken coup with loud clacking chickens! Food was average.
Snorkelling was a nightmare too with at least a hundred other people and a dozen boats at the same place. It was much better to snorkel just at the beach. There were even reef sharks less than a hundred metres from the hotel's beach. Just beware about bumping into one of the dozens of other tourists.
Thursdays and Saturdays are the worst, as there are groups from the ship cruise being shipped in to the Laguna hotel. Needless to say, it was like a circus.
Should you still decide to stay here, a word of warning: If you don't return your towel on the same day, the hotel will call you at 745am to remind you to return it! No consideration at all.
I sincerely hope that our Malaysian government starts taking action against the mass tourism before the island is totally destroyed. Redang is one of THE most beautiful islands and I hope it stays so.
