Review: Laguna Redang Island Resort, Terengganu

Beach holiday is always my dream vacation, how about you? If you love crystal clear water and tiffany blue sky like I do, Redang Island is a must-visit local destination for couples and family alike.

Despite of the overwhelming number of beach resorts along the Long Beach of Redang Island, I choose Laguna Resort because of its attractive 3 days 2 nights package that includes all-day buffet (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners) and 3 snorkelling trips that make my trip memorable.

How To Get There?

    Step 1: Take bus from KL (7 hours journey) and arrive at Kuala Terengganu Express Bus Terminal
    Step 2: Then Laguna shuttle van will send you to Shahbandar Jetty (5 minutes drive)
    Step 3: Board onto Laguna ferry: 1st session at 9.30am, 2nd session at 12noon (1 hour 45 minutes ride)
    Step 4: Arrival at Laguna Redang!

Welcome to Laguna Beach Resort! 

I'm glad that Laguna provides such convenient arrangement for its guests, and the rides are all punctual with friendly staff. Not forgetting to mention, during the ferry ride, you'd be mesmerised by the beauty of ocean too!

This picture reminds me of how impressive Laguna Resort is just by exterior look alone.

Thanks for the cool refreshing welcome drink, Limau Asam Boi. Such a great thirst quencher!

Laguna Redang Island Resort has 222 rooms ranging from Standard, Deluxe Garden, Deluxe Pool, Deluxe Sea, Premier Sea Rooms and Laguna Suites. And I love the chalet-like structure, with spacious interior lined with timber striped flooring that perfects my cosy and comfortable stay there.

Deluxe Seaview Room

I notice that all rooms here have the same interior arrangement--- Twin sharing basis, but you can see 4 beds there, so I presume it is really large to accommodate 4 persons. The only difference between each room is the view--- Mine has a breathtaking view of the white sandy beach and deep blue sea. 

Let's explore the resort!

Nice view from the al fresco dining area of Sang Suria Buffet Restaurant!

Since all meals are inclusive, I just hop to Sang Suria for a wholesome buffet spread from local cuisine to international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast: 7.00am - 9.30am | Lunch: 12.00noon - 2.30pm | Dinner: 7.00pm - 9.30pm

The daily international breakfast buffet is one that I am looking forward for, because it spoils me with local choices (Nasi lemak, roti canai, chee cheong fun) as well as western delights (sausages, sandwich, croissant).

My daily buffet lunch there is equally satisfying :)

As for dinner, a BBQ international buffet is served every alternate day. Here you can enjoy grill-to-order items from grilled local fish to beef tenderloin. I especially love the chicken satay here! 

The best part at Laguna is of course the white sandy beach! Crystal clear water, lush greenery, and deep blue sky, how can I resist them? Pretty ladies in bikinis add brownie points to the overall beauty that you can enjoy along the beach :P

Be it sunbathing or beach wedding, I think the beach is perfect for all activities!

Approaching evening, you can just go swimming and play beach volleyball here. Oh ya, Laguna also offers trips such as sunset cruise, fishing trip, non-motorized water sports, jungle trekking, kayak, nature walk and island excursion for tourists.

Watching sunrise by the beach is a must-do here! The sun here rises around 7.30am, so I have no problem waking up to capture such picturesque scenery. I am lucky that the morning sky is clear from dark clouds.

I am so in love with this place!!

After staying for 3D2N, I was overall happy with my experience, from the amazing beach to the large seaview room, all so awesome! Honeymoons, family vacations and company trips are especially worth the money for a resort like this one because of the full board arrangement (from airport/bus station tranfer to pre-arranged snorkelling trips), spacious room, and complete facilities.
