Last September, we were given a chance to join a Media Familiarization trip jointly organized by Tourism Malaysia, Santai Travel Magazine as well as The Legend Resort Cherating to Cherating, Pahang aiming to promote the popular beach resort area on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia destination in conjunction of the upcoming Visit Malaysia Year 2014. Cherating is basically located 40 km away from Kuantan Town and it is also called as the ‘Surfers Paradise’. Cherating is one of the only beaches in Peninsular Malaysia offering a good waves for surfing in the monsoon season. The 3 days and 2 nights stay was a courtesy by The Legend Resort Cherating.
What was our first impression when we first step in to the hotel? The answer is – It’s a family oriented resort which offers a whole range of activities.
A unique sea view grand deluxe room (with a private balcony) that we had throughout the stay. We were told that it was newly renovated. Lucky us! The room are equipped with facilities includes minibar, coffee and tea making facilities, hot and cold water, a flat screen TV and etc. In overall, everything are in place perfectly!
One of the thing that caught our eyes is definitely the big swimming pool at the resort. This is one of the best things that a beach resort could offered. There are 2 large swimming pools up to 6 ft deep and a children’s pool which provide endless hours of fun for the whole family. Kids would love this! The landscape of tropical plants surrounding the pool add the signature of the resort as well.
Apart of the swimming pools, visitors will not only enjoy the refreshing breeze of the South China Sea and sound of the waves, but they could enjoy a wide range of activities around the resort. Not far from the swimming pool, there is a small booth of Mizi Watersport hosting adventurous activities such as All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) jungle trekking ride, snorkelling, kayaking, canoeing, banana boat, island trip, fishing trip and etc with such a reasonable rates. What a resort by the beach without any water sport activities right? We managed to try the AT ride! Amazing! Worth trying!
Both ATV and scrambler ride will bring you to the nearest fisherman village. And from here, you can actually witness and get a glimpse of the daily life in the fisherman village, if you’re just lucky enough.
On the next day, we woke up as early as in the morning since we really wanted to witness the beautiful sunrise by the beach. The shy sun is just started to make their appearance of the day.

All the delicious foods of breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet spread were well served at the Coconut Grove Coffee House through out the trip. All room booking are including the complimentary breakfast ranging from local to continental dishes.
Well, the resort could also catered to all your request by having a candle light dinner by the beach or pools. This is what you’re getting if you wanted to have a romantic getaway here in the resort.
On the last night of the trip, the host treated us with a dinner by the beach. Oh ya, it’s a ‘Pirate Night’ theme!
In overall, being part of the media trip was such an amazing experience for us. The Legend Resort Cherating has lots to offer from being an ideal spot for a family retreat, a romantic getaway or mix of business and leisure in the heart of Cherating, Pahang. What are you guys waiting for?
