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

Moringa Oil - review

For a while now I've become increasingly interested in my skin and skincare products. I am now well into my thirties and becoming aware that my skin is changing . Something the 20 year old me never thought would happen. Maybe I thought I'd be blessed with clear skin for, forever. But dear Heather that is just not the case! Literally five years ago, since my 30th a random red blemish appeared on the end of my nose and has happily sat there since! Some days it would seem more prominent then others, but it was there to stay, so I thought. Recently, the week leading up to my 35th a friend of said blemish started to appear! A smaller lighter version. Flippin' hell I'm being invaded! Was this my future! The end of my nose filled with weird under the skin red blemishes?? I had already spied one random one on each side of my jawline!  Where ever next!? Enough. Enough is enough and action was needed. I'm not letting my future skin be plagued with these weird
