The hotel, villas and beach are lovely. An easy 3 hour drive from KL. The staff were very friendly. Construction work happening right in front of the pool and Ocean View suites, which would have ruined the visit. This was not mentioned on hotels.com, and...More

I’m having mixed feelings while doing this entry. Was there in end June for 3 nights having heard great reviews of The Kasturi. Architecture and concept was great of course. The beach villa was lovely (No.9) and no detail was overlooked for comfort; staff service...More

The resort is nice enough for kids and adults...my kids had a great time at the beach and pool....probably because the place is not packed with people. Service was great and all the staff are extremely pleasant.

About
Description
Set directly on the Chendor beach with perfect views to the sunrise over the South China Sea and Tanjong Geliga, The Kasturi Villas and Suites are the perfect gem for retreat from city life. With the rainforest ...More behind and the beach to the front, they encapsulate the reality of being embraced by land and sea. This tiny resort is designed to escape from city stress, but without sacrificing any of the comforts or luxury that we all crave. The Kasturi Resort is built on an 800 meters’ beach frontage backed by forested dunes. The resort has virtually exclusive access to another 500 meters of beach to the north culminating at the estuary of Sungai Pak Siak into the South China Sea. The Kasturi will be the finest 5 Star Small Luxury Resort along the East Coast, embraced by the gift of nature and the natural sea breezes of the South China Sea. Less

No is the simple answer if you have small children. When we stayed in Dec 2017 there was no kid activities or playground. The pool is quite deep so your better option is the one with your room. If the kids are older there... More
