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 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.

The Kasturi is indeed a beautiful resort in Cherating Pahang. Cherating was once a magnet for domestic and international tourists. It has now seen 2 more resorts added, the Royale Chulan Cherating & The Kasturi Cherating. Both are top of the class and 5-Stars. The Kasturi was des

This is a beautiful resort set in stunning surroundings. It is very quiet, and the idea is just to chill and relax in natural environment. Very soothing to a harried city soul . Expect to do nothing except shut your eyes by the pool. Loved it.

Thank you to all who work with The Kasturi for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable. The resort architecture is strikingly unique; kudos to the architect and owner; a true labour of love and inspiration. True comfort, which allowed us to instantly relax. Service was excepti

Stayed for two nights in the beachfront villa. Was taking a short break from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur.
It was so secluded that you hardly see anyone. The room is spacious, the bathroom has glass wall giving you maximum view of the outdoor but still provide you with t

I received the following notification from Katsuri after I pay for my room in Katsuri through agoda. I have mentioned that we have a two years old travelling with us. And the answer I get: not kids allowed at this room! I will have to rent a 2 or 3 rooms villa !!!! All due to hotel policies, IT is never being mentioned here that kids are not allowed in the corner studio or sea front suite...Seriously, there are just two of us plus a small baby. Why do i need a two bed rooms or three bed rooms villa?? I said its ok and asked for a refund, this so called reservation assistant just throw me a statement " you booked through agoda, go ask agoda" what kind of hospitality you have here in this hotel? Please be informed that children are allowed in 2-Bedroom Beach Front Villa,3-Bedroom Forest Family Villa and 2-BedroomRooftop Penthouse only, provided that the guest comply with the maximum number of guest. The resort reserves the right to cancel the booking or refuse entry of the guests if failing to comply to the policy.
In my observation, The Kasturi is built for a different purpose mainly for Adults and grown up children who could appreciate nature. Privacy and intimateness in nature and total relaxation is the prime focus. With children crying and running around making a lot of noise, the parents would be happy but other guests are not. I would recommend if we have small children go to children friendly resort but Kasturi is meant for different purpose. We Need to understand...

Is this place kids friendly? any interesting activities to keep the kids busy??
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 are standard sea based activities but still not a lot of options.

What kind of kitchenette do they provide? Is it just a jug for coffees or is there something additional to prepare a meal?
There's a kettle provided. Also a coffee machine and some free minibar soft drinks if I recall correctly.

"ask for a villa with a beach front."
"Beach Villas for couples are the best, ideally Villa 9-12."
"Be prepared to have own transportation to venture into nearby attractions"
"Beachfront villas recommended for own pool and superb views"
"You really need to request the right room that is according to the photos when you booked through any website."
