Sari Pacifica Hotel, Resort & Spa - Lang Tengah
Lang Tengah Island, Pasir Besar, Terengganu, 21030, Malaysia
Feel Like Royalty
The service was a little lacking , however the people's kindness was over and beyond expectations! Make sure you are ready for the water taxi to get to the resort from the airport. Def get the waffles for breakfast, and the chocolate dipping sauce :) The dive center was an amazing experience.. scuba diving as well as snorkeling... and if you are up for it, a game of volleyball with the locals is a great time. Bring a book, relax at the wonderful beach and breathtaking views. Even while you eat at the dinning room, you get a beautiful relaxed view of the ocean and adjacent islands..Food was average to good, but we had trouble getting wine. I think that they said they were working on getting a selection. Def recommend this hotel, especially for the value you get.
Unique Quality: The people who worked there stood out the most , kindness and welcoming.

Re: Travel from 22nd till 24th October 2011.....
If you plan to go diving in East Coast during Monsoon Season, then you must be prepared for the unpredictable environment. You may enjoy something good today but tomorrow, who know????? The risk is always there.
Travel Tips for Pulau Redang
I never go to Redang but i think i can answer a few of your question. Now is May, the whether is very hot and luckily u don't spend your time here right now. I think September is the beginning of the monsoon so the sea will be quite rough. I don't think u have to worried about food. Redang is popular island and of course most resort had prepared a reasonable food for tourist. That's all i can help..=)
I just came back from Redang on 11 Aug 2008.
1st, it;s true that the authorities have forbidden the use of fins for snorkling esp at the Marine Park.
2nd, I tried to rent the fins but it was rejected. But I did saw people using fins for snorkling but those are their own fins as rental is out. Rental is available for mask and snorkel only. their clear water and marine life
I enjoyed waking up in the early mornings to go for a walk on the beach, especially after having had a good night's sleep.
I'm not one to laze in bed, and especially not on my last morning in Redang. No, siree, I was rested and ready to go. :)
Once I awoke, I slipped quietly out of my room, put on on my flip flops, grabbed my camera and stepped out of my beachfront chalet to check out the new day. I stood for a few minutes, quietly, breathing in the fresh, crisp morning air and looked around. The resort on that Sunday morning was quiet. There were very few guests out and about, and those that were out were just like me, happy to be left alone, lost in thought. Mornings are my favourite time of the day. The crispness and newness of the morning appeals to me - it is like a present, waiting to be unwrapped, waiting to unfold, discovered, waiting to be filled with events and happenings.
The 2 Airports: Singapore Seletar & Pulau Redang
To fly directly to Pulau Redang from Singapore, you'll need to take Berjaya Air via Singapore Seletar Airport [XSP] (not to be confused with Singapore Changi Airport) in the northern part of the country. This airport started its life as a British military airport and even today, has retained some of the architecture from that era. There is only 1 public bus service (Bus 103) that services the airport. It starts from Serangoon Central Bus Interchange and will make a loop inside the airport before returning to the bus interchange once again. The easiest way to get here (from the city) would be to take a taxi. It should not cost you more than S$14 one way.
The airport is pretty compact with only 1 commercial client (Berjaya Air for flights to Pulau Redang & Pulau Tioman). There are no cafes or eateries here, just vending machines. There is one waiting lounge before immigration. The coolest part would be the waiting area at the departure gate, housed in a pre-WW2 bunker. There are 2 large TVs here to entertain passengers. All areas are air-conditioned, except for the connecting walkpaths. Passengers walk right up to the plane for boarding.
Pulau Redang Airport [RDN] resembles a fanciful air-strip. The entire airport is open-air in concept. There are separate arrival and departure gates, all housed in a simple white building with 2 small souvenir shops and washrooms in the middle. Baggages are trolleyed from the plane to the baggage claim area where passengers must step forward to collect before clearing customs. Resort coaches will be waiting at the arrival gate to fetch guests. Like Seletar, passengers walk right up to the plane for boarding.
The nearest resort is Berjaya Beach Resort which is just 12-15 minutes away.
check out the Keropok lekor
Terrengannu is known for its Wau(kite) and its *ahem* political affliation, but better still, for its Keropok Lekor... it is fish, dried in the sun, and fried... its really a treat, and can be bought made-to-fry, or eat-on-the-spot... actually i lied... you prob. can't find it on the islands... you'll have to go to the mainland... be sure to ask around for the best spot to buy keropok (ke-ROW-pa-k). snorkelling with my friend... plus the abs. fantastic guides that showed us the best spots... oh... and burying myself in the sand... woohoo!
