4 Sept 2010 | East Coast Vacation 2010 (Cherating)
Travelled along the trunk road for about 150km, we decided on Holiday Villa Cherating as our next destination. It’s undoubtedly the most popular beach along the east coast. The sandy beaches are dotted with pleasant casuarinas trees and calm water.
Holiday Villa Cherating, in my opinion is a perfect getaway place to be with friends and loved ones.
At 4.00pm, we check-in at Holiday Villa Cherating after we were left undecided where we should stay in Cherating. After having a round tour to their resort and facilities, with an offering at price of RM190 per night, we had no objection to settle at here.
Walk-in availability … was given Garden Villa at Istana Wing
We stayed at Garden Villa, a spacious semi-d chalet is really worth a night. The offering from this resort is all about privacy and personal luxuries surrounding and you can get pampered all you want. It comes with perfect combination of great waves, white sandy beach and fine dining place. Not many people around that day which we really enjoyed it.
I stayed at Palace Wing which features a replica of Islama Lama Sri Menanti in Negeri Sembilan. The distance from each other are just few walking steps.
Semi-D Chalet … Garden Villa Cherating
Our room provides relaxing ambiance with blend of convenience, comfort, warmth. It’s included a television, air condition, a fridge, sofa seat and safe deposit box.
Near to swimming pool … straight towards from front door
Quiet pool … like having our pool for ourselves for an hour
There are another more luxurious stay called Eastern Pavilion, features 12 boutique villas, each with its own private swimming pool and Jacuzzi. This is truly your intimate escapade.
Eastern Pavilion … a higher class by accommodation
Private swimming pool … just straight from the door and dip into it
Various Malaysia state pavilions … I guess 14 but I didn’t count
The Lagenda Restaurant at offers a large range of local and western dishes in elegant surroundings. To spice up your stay, try the Chinese cuisine serve in the Chinese Restaurant in the hotel.
A short distance of walk … near the beach
Relax and hear to sounds of waves … oblivious to the surroundings
At night … it’s more romantic to hold the moment here
Our dinner indeed a special one, instead of getting out for a casual dinner, we went out to night market out there. I’ve few recommendations from GPS location. To make things better, we took away KFC Family Bucket (4 pax) and with famous keropok lekor and we ate at beside swimming pool.
Nice feeling and ambiances where we can have our dinner at dim light and side pool. After a delighted dinner, we had our time walk-around the resort.
Night view … truly reflect my feeling that night
Resort lobby … not crowded even at weekend night
Time to bid good night after an energetic day and prepare for last day of our vacation tomorrow.
… 5 Sept 2010
In the next morning, we had a good quality of breakfast served at the Lagenda restaurant. Some foods are well known to the resort.
My buffet breakfast … in fresh morning with breezy weather
Even though the weather is wet, we went for a walk at beach. The feeling that can get from waking on powdery, white sand beaches can only be describe by experiencing it.
White powdery sand beach … hardly can describe without experiencing it
Throughout my entire stay here, I can say that SATISFIED is the only word to describe my feeling. Enough for simple holiday at Cherating, not much can do over here except to enjoy the mother nature that resided along the coast line.
We checked out on early to continue our vacation plan by stopping by Teluk Chempedak before going back to KL.
