Kuantan Via the Coast - 24-26 June 2017
June’s MDR will take us along the Eastern coast of Malaysia, to its ninth largest city, Kuantan. Kuantan is vibrant, clean and punctuated by lush greenery that gives the town a refreshing countryside atmosphere. Food is easily available as there are many restaurants and open air food stalls selling local culinary delights. Its nightlife is an affair of colorfully decorated stalls selling anything from handicraft to costume jewelry and farm produce.
An early start from GP will see us arriving at our hotel, a beach resort nestled on the pristine Balok beach fronting the azure waters of South China Sea in Peninsular Malaysia. Recently refurbished, Swiss Garden Beach Resort offers timeless contemporary elegance with a sophisticated blend of luxury. The resort's 304 rooms and suites are equipped with modern amenities and features traditional motifs, a reflection of the country's cultural heritage.
All guestrooms are attached with a private balcony overlooking a panoramic view of the mesmerizing South China Sea or the lush green landscape surrounding the resort. The resort’s accommodation options range from the spacious Deluxe Room or Sea View Room to the larger suites. For your stay at the resort, we have pre-booked the Deluxe rooms. Designed in olive tones with accents of dark rich hues, the new room infuses style and essence. Canvas clad frames adorn the feature wall, a modern interpretation of the Malaysian lifestyle. The rooms are also fitted with modern facilities such as LCD TV, safe deposit boxes and a private balcony commanding a view of the lush grounds. Bold bright tiles and enhanced amenities decorate the new bathroom, ensuring premier comfort for you.
During your stay, experience an exciting culinary journey in the Garden Terrace Coffee House, where your palate will be enticed with à la carte and buffet menu selections made up of local and international flavors or a selection of Halal oriental dishes at the Blossom Chinese Restaurant. Snack on scrumptious cakes and pastries at the Swiss Deli with friends over a cup of freshly brewed coffee or sipping specially blended cocktails.
