Hyatt Regency, Kuantan, Malaysia

Hyatt Regency Kuantan Malaysia


This weeks post is all bout the Hyatt Regency, Kuantan. Back in 2010 we had six months in Kuala Lumpur while my husband was working out there. My husband worked a crazy shift pattern, but when he did have some time off we tried to make the most of it.

We discovered Kuantan when we were looking at the Hyatt website one day. Kuantan is on the East Coast of Malaysia and less then an hours flight away from KL.

We flew on Malaysian Airlines, but Air Asia do fantastic deals too. We went there three times in total. Twice for only one night and then once we went for two nights. It doesn't sound long to spend, but the hotel, even being a Hyatt, was so affordable and with cheap flights it made it a great little getaway. 

We were so impressed with the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and the grounds were lovely too. There are two pools, one of them with a swim up bar which did some very tasty pizzas! The hotel was right on the beach so we had lovely sea views. Unfortunately, the beach was quite dirty, but it was still lovely to walk up and down in the sunshine! 

One time when we ventured up the beach, past some overgrown woodland, we saw something that looked very prehistoric run into the bushes! I was very dramatic and swear to this day it was a crocodile, but my husband reckons it could of been a giant lizard, as they are known out there and do get to a fair size! Either way, I'm glad it disappeared and didn't come towards us! At that point we did turn back!

Most of the time we ate in the seafood restaurant called Coals on the Beach. We sat out in the open air, listening to the waves crash against the shore, sipping wine, it was bliss. I remember the sea bass was our favorite. Next to the restaurant is a really cool bar called Sampan Bar. Again, overlooking the sea and the bar is made out of an old Vietnamese refugee vessel that apparently landed near the hotel. Again, it was a fantastic place to sit and sip a nice cool drink watching the sunset.

Inside the main hotel was the buffet restaurant where we had breakfast and it was certainly a good spread. I remember there being an Italian restaurant which was very nice and also another bar, which from memory was a sports type bar. Again, that was fun and they had a band playing most nights who were fairly entertaining (and loud!)

We didn't venture into Kuantan itself, but just to the side of the hotel there was a 'square' with a few little gift shops and some market stalls. There were wild monkeys everywhere, running about! Quite amazing to watch actually!

All in all I would recommend a visit here, we found it very good value for money and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great memories.

    1. Hi Irenee!
      Thank you so much for your comment!
      Yeah the beach up close was quite dirty with cigarette butts and litter unfortunately : (
      I think a little clean up would completely transform the place, because as you say the sea did look very inviting!
      Have a great day and thank you for reading!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
