The journey started from KL via the East West Karak Highway to Cherating. The journey through light traffic took about 3 1/2 hours. This was a reminiscent trip of sort because it was more than 20 years ago that we were on the beach at Club Med with the children (Mandy was about 4 and Alicia 2!) looking into the resort. Now we are here as hotel guests without the children.
The age shows in some parts of the resort especially the rooms. But then again, guests are expected to be out the whole day enjoying the facilities and activities available free of charge.
The facilities includes the gym, ping pong, tennis, badminton, football, two swimming pools, jacuzzi, spa,etc. Actvities available are sailing, kayaking, rock climbing, archery, fitness classes, jungle trekking and trapeze. There's certainly something for everyone young and old.
The highlights for us couch potatoes were the daily buffet meals and unlimited soft drinks, fruit juices, cocktails, beer and wines! There's even a Noodle House just in case of cravings between meals. Believe me, it was taxing devouring all the different types of food, salads, savourys, deserts available and feeling full the entire stay!
After dinner each night, the staff will come together to present different entertaining music and dance shows for all ages. The highlight was on the last night where we were entertained by a thrilling acrobatic show.
At the end of the day, we retire to the comforts of our room satiated and exhausted. Three full days of R&R. It had been a wonderful experience of what Club Med has to offer.
