... when you order chicken & cashew nuts to eat, thats what you get - half a chicken and a bowl of cashew nuts.
Memorable thing - The firefly experience and going down the black still river in the dark.
Frightening thing - Avoiding Portuguese Men of War in the sea and avoiding motorbikes that appear to head straight for you whether in the road or on a pavement.
Embarrassing thing - looking like a lumpy lobster with ginger wild hair.
... which had more to offer than the previous one. We browsed the stores and ate at a food court. Again, since it was raining we decided to watch another $3 movie. This time the movie was Stolen. After the movie we walked back to our guesthouse and prepared for the next day’s bus ride back to Kuala Lumpur where we would then take a subway to Nilai. Nilai was a place we called home for the next 5 days. This town is near a bus station that would take us to the Moto GP ...
... the elephants and the people getting a photo with the elephants, but Sarma got it in his head to splash Steve and I instead so in seconds we were drenched. We made our way to the front and got our picture with the elephants. We then got splashed by everyone else in the River. It was really fun though and luckily it was hot. Smilng we dragged Sarma out of the river, he was having to much fun splashing and went to change.
We headed to the taxi and made our way ...
... slightly more worried when everyone else had taken their luggage onto the boat but were pleased when we didn’t have to carry the stuff up the millions of stairs at kuala tahan. To add to this I realised that Han travel wasn’t the same company as the one I had been looking at on the internet which was NKS travel as we went past their office later and it was a completely different company opps.
When we walked in the office I asked about our luggage and ...
The temple itself is inside the cave and the entrance to the cave is through a fleet of 300+ iron stairs built in recent years. It is dimly lit by a few lights powered by a small generator set. This temple is unique as it houses both Buddhists Deities ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Kuantan
Good for a relaxing holiday
We spent a week at the Hyatt after visiting Singapore. Once you get past the 70's style buildings this hotel makes for a very pleasant break. This is not a four star hotel as advertised, the building looks tired and the rooms need a face lift. What makes this place special is the staff and service which is superb. The staff were never without a smile and always had time to ask how you were and how you were enjoying the stay.
The hotel provides good food and fine dining which is resonably priced.
I would reccommend a stay in Kuantan if you are looking for a very relaxed holiday but if you want lively nightlife I would chose a more popular resort.
MY family and I have had a fantastic weekend at the Hayatt in Kuantan.The staff are very helpful and very polite.My kids loved the pool,everywhere was very clean.I would recomend this hotel for a very relaxing holiday.
How do you feel when you arrived after driving all the way from Kota Bahru in Kelantan down to Kuantan from 9am to 10pm (of coz wth some stopovers) probably about 300km you were told that your reservations had been cancelled even after you had made a few calls earlier that you would be coming late.
You would definitely blew your top and raise your voice like what i did.
Anyway I got the Presidential suite come with jacuzzi at standard room rates coz the hotel is totally occuppied then.
Anyhow as of the previous reviews the staff had that genuine smile.......especially the manager who was checking me in...my apologies for shouting at you...and hats off for your keeping your cool....
We have been to the Hyatt in April 2005 and booked it based on the description and photos of the Hyatt internet site.
Most people visiting Malaysia pass through KL, and then head for Penang or Langkawi, all situated on the West Coast. The East coast offers a different but equally enjoyable possibility, although the choice of higher grade hotels is limited. I spent several nights at the Hyatt in Kuantan a few years ago, on business, and my wife & I returned in February 2005 for a week's holiday.
We stayed at the Hyatt for Xmas and New Year, so we were there in Malaysia when the Tusanmi struck, which was a very sad time, the news reports were brilliant keeping everyone informed.
We went there for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had previously been to other parts of Malaysia before and were impressed with the high standards in hotels and generally found Malaysia absolutely enchanting.
My husband and I visited Hyatt in Kuantan in April 2002. As it was just after Easter holidays there were not many people around and we spent good quality time there. Also, we managed to swing a good deal: pay for 5 nights and 5 free with free breakfast thrown in for the first 5 nights.
