However, if you’re not interested in going where everyone else is headed to (and also because you want to avoid massive traffic jams), here’s one resort to consider that’s nestled in the charming town of Cherating.

Located in Kuantan and nearby Kuala Terengganu, The Kasturi perfectly captures the saying, “Malaysia, Truly Asia”. Since it’s situated within lush greenery adorned with wild animals and the sound of the ocean, the resort provides a secluded haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life; yet, nearby are local villages providing a glimpse of an authentic Malaysian lifestyle.

Having just opened, the luxurious resort can comfortably accommodate families, offering spacious beach front villas for four, including the handicapped as some interiors are specifically designed for those bound by wheelchairs. If that’s not enough to convince you to visit this sanctuary, here are 5 other reasons that’ll make you fall in love with this pretty place.

 

1. Stunning interiors 

The lovechild of the pioneer of Malaysian architecture, Hijjas Kasturi, created sharp lines softened by nature that would surely tantalise the senses. Simultaneously, he placed vibrant art everywhere, from large intricate woodwork at the entrance of the villa to smaller abstract paintings in the villa’s toilets.

Speaking of woodwork, the resort focuses on being eco-friendly by incorporating as much wood, bamboo, and rattan as possible while also building around nature, such as including trees into the design of the villa.

2. Breakfast of champions

The daily breakfast spread here consists of Asian delicacies, mainly local plus a hint of Western. Likewise for the dinner menu, both meal times are great opportunities for trying their nasi lemak, pucuk paku, rendang, and so much more.

3. Turtle hatchery 

Located literally beside The Kasturi, the Rimbun Dahan Turtle Hatchery provides an unforgettable experience for guests. After all, the sanctuary houses turtle eggs momentarily, ensuring a safe haven until the baby turtles hatch, since a market for their eggs unfortunately exists. 🙁

4. Otter spotting

Besides the turtle sanctuary, guests can also observe otters that have made the local river their home. Within the vicinity of the resort, there’s a river that beautifully curves into the ocean, encapsulating the slogan of The Kasturi, “embraced by land and sea”.

Other wild animals spotted at or near the resort include a white crowned hornbill as well as the Jesus Christ lizard, which is known for walking on water.

 

5. Coming soon: kayaking and glowing fireflies 

Since the recently-launched resort is still a work in progress, rest assured that more activities and amenities will be added soon. For example, kayaking around the river and watching glowing fireflies that naturally illuminate the night.
