We left home at about 10.30am on Monday. It took us slightly more than 5 hours to reach Cherating (made 2 stops along the journey for a quick lunch and coffee break).
i) value for money (only RM190 per day) - had all the necessary amenities
ii) the room and bathroom were very clean (even though they looked rather old)
iii) friendly and helpful staff
iv) well-maintained playground & three swimming pools
v) BEAUTIFUL CLEAN STRETCH OF SOFT GOLDEN SANDY BEACH
It's definitely not a place for a romantic getaway but fantastic enough to relax and de-stress.
Check out how my little heroes enjoyed themselves while we were there:
What?!? No Astro?!? OH NO!!!
Gimme a piggy ride, please...
Let me help you, little bro.
Wei Jin: mini crab hunting
Bonding time: a stroll by the beach
Most of the time, my three heroes were in the pool!
Btw, DH...this pose isn't sexy at all la :))
Hungry? Take a short walk to a seafood restaurant located just by the entrance of the resort. The food is good and the price is reasonable. It was crowded during dinner time. We waited for about 45 mins before we were served with our food:(
tired & hungry & sweaty (...& slowly losing patience)
DH & You Jin: clowning around out of boredom
We drove over to Club Med and Turtle Sanctuary. We intended to go turtle watching that night but we changed our mind: RM55 per adult and RM25 per kid for turtle watching and there's no guarantee that there'll be turtles waving at you and say hi...kind of expensive (just my humble opinion).
DH: turtle eggs parttime guard (?)
VERDICT: We definitely had a wonderful time there in Cherating.
We would certainly look forward for another trip to Cherating. Eastern Pavillion next year, DH?
Happy Anniversary :)
