.... and in 2006 we estimated arrive at first to the island by the name of  Pulau Perhentian offshore from Kota Bahru, after this - 7 days later we´ll travel to a small idyllic islannd offshore from Terrengganu - this name is Lang Tengah.

At Perhntian we´ve already booked the beautiful Coral View Resort and on Lang Tengah we´ve booked the D´Coconut Lagoon Resort.

The trip  beginns with a short stop-over in KL, her we stay in one of the best hotels in southeastasia - the SHERATON IMPERIAL Kuala Lumpur. This hotel belongs to the Luxery Collection of the Starwood Hotel Group and it´s nearby the famoust KL Tower and of course the Petronas Towers.

After this stop we go directly with the biggest local Low-Cost-Airline AIR ASIA towards to the Airport of Kota Bahru at the eastcoast of Malaysia. The flight takes averagly around 55 minutes and you get a one way ticket mostly for only around 1 to 60 MYR (+ Tax), so converted you can get a ticket for 10-20 US Dollar ! Also sometimes there are special offers on the website of AIR ASIA and you can get a freet icket and only must paiy the Tax. The one annd only disadvantage ist, that the baggage allowance is only 15 kg, so with your own dive-equipment maybe you get a problem.
From Kota Bahru you get a land transfer to Besut-Jetty - it takes only 45 Minutes and from there you get a speedboat transfer to Perhentian and directly to you resort (around 40 Minutes).
Perhentian Island discerns itselfs in two island, one is the “big Island” named Besar and a small island - mostly for backpackers - namend Kecil. A slight differnece ist that on Kecil are more backbackers and more chance to have a party in the evening. Besar is more quiet and have mostly the better accomondation. But this is only a question of taste and not global appraisable.

Perhentian Besar

Because of the better Bungalows and Resorts and the position we´ve choiced the island of Besar. Unfortunately you can`t book the CORAL VIEW Resort by their own homepgae, because the havn´t an own one ! But it´s easy to book when you fax a request directly to the resort and you got a fast answer and offer. Here the Fax-No. for prices and of course to get a request: ++ 60 9 6902600. So the prices are VERY different and depends of the postion and comfort of the several bungalows, a normal equipped standard room with A/C is the cheapest, then succeed the Deluxe Room, Family and Executive Suite, this types all differs additionally in Garden, Hill or Sea-View, according to this there are 9 different categories - so i cant deliefer all the prices of peeak, low and high-Season ! We´ve choiced th second expenisve categorie - the Family Suite Sea View and the price in the off-peak Season (always at the beginning and ending of the Season)  280 MYR . Cause of a 7 day stay, we got a 10 % discount.
The transfer with the speedboat will be also arrange by the resort, the cost are 30 MYR oneway per person, the same price, if you need a landtransfer (pickup) at the airport to the Besut jetty.
As we said above there are many informations about the Coral View Resort in the internet, e.g. here you can find many alternate hotels, bungalows and resorts in all price ranges. And of course when you look in a searchmaschine you will find everything you need to plan your perhentian stay. A good german travel agent, but also a little bit more expensiv is geoplan.

The Dive operator named Divers World belongs to the Coral View Resort and offers daily and easy dives all arround  the island - so let´s easy dive with short boat trips to the dive spots.

Lang Tengah Island

So after our stay on Perhentian we go directly to Lang Tengah, an offshore island in front of Terrengganu! Normally you arrive to this island from the Merang Jetty. This is also the main reason why we fly from Terrangganu Airport back to KL, because the boat and the land transfer back from this island is much shorter than to Kotha Bahru Airport ! Here we´ve choiced the Malaysian Airlines, the´ve often a special offer and with a bit luck you can get a Business-Class Ticket one-Way  forr only 240 MYR (58 US Dollar Euro) - and here you´ve no problem with your luggagae - 30 kg allowance in business class.

The island of Lang Tengah looks like an maldives island - also from the various of things to do - here is nothing - only 4 resorts - you´re invated only for realxing, swimming and of course diving - really a romantic island !

The 4 Resort: The Blue Coral Resort (3 Star), the Square Point Resort (2 Star), the Redang Lang Island Resort and das newest one, the D´Coconut Lagoon Resort, (the same one is also Perhentian - named D´Coconut Island Resort). The D´Coconut Laggon is located in a wonderful bay as the other 3 resorts on the island and have a wonderful view accros the pool to the sea - mostly also from your room.

The roomrates are similar to the price structur from the perhenation coral view resort, many catergories. The rates start with a room in the Eastwing, a standardroom costs 110 MYR in the off-Peak-Season (01.02.-31.03 and 01.10.-15.11 every year ), then follows the superior romm for 155 MYR, Deluxe Low 195 MYR, Deluxe high 215 MYR, Family 340 MYR - in the Westwing it starts with 215 MYR für eine Executive Deluxe (old name Junior Suite and our choice for our stay), Family costs here 340 MYR and a Bungalow yet 400 MYR, in the Peak-Season (01.04. - 30.06) it´s more expensive arround 10 % and in the Super Peak Season (01.07.-340.09) yet 20 %.more

Apropos: Both Hotels and Resorts you can better book directly at the Resorts by fax or phone, because the tour operator mostly don´t offer a special discount, when you stay 7 nights or longer. So better contact the reception of the hotel and ask for a special rate.
