Ber­jaya Tioman Re­sort

Be­tween Kam­pung Paya and Kam­pung Tekek (09 419 1000/www.ber­jaya­ho­tel.com). Ad­mit­tedly Ber­jaya Re­sorts can be a bit hit and miss but trust us, this one is more of a hit than a miss. Spread over 200 acres of beau­ti­fully land­scaped grounds, their 18-hole golf course has been much praised but dig a lit­tle deeper and you’ll find nu­mer­ous other fam­ily-friendly leisure and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer, from jun­gle trekking, beach vol­ley­ball and friendly ta­ble ten­nis matches to old-school games in the ar­cade and amuse­ment cen­tre. Spa­cious, sturdy rooms and chalets, lots of cute roam­ing cats and a gor­geous beach com­plete this great fam­ily hol­i­day spot.

Club Med Cher­at­ing

HVOM, 29th Mile, Jalan Kuan­tanKe­ma­mam, Kuan­tan (09 581 9133/ www.clubmed.com.my). What can we say about Club Med’s childfriendly fa­cil­i­ties that hasn’t al­ready been said? Part of the fa­mous French chain, this lux­ury re­sort em­ploys an all-in­clu­sive con­cept for lodg­ings, food, fa­cil­i­ties, sports, games and shows. Billed as a ‘Hol­i­day Pack­age’, the re­sort is a vil­lage lo­cated in the heart of an 80-hectare trop­i­cal park with 4km of fine sandy beaches. No age group is left out with Baby Club Med open for the very lit­tle ones (four months to two-years-old), Pe­tit Club Med, for two to un­der-fours, and Mini Club Med for those from four to 10 years old. Teenagers are catered for as well with Club Med Pass­world (open for those be­tween the ages of 11 and 18). The per­fect recipe for a great fam­ily hol­i­day. Don’t forget to pop by the tur­tle sanc­tu­ary next door for some marine con­ser­va­tion ed­u­ca­tion for the young ones.

Mu­tiara Ta­man Ne­gara Re­sort

Kuala Ta­han, Jerantut (09 266 3500/2200/ www.mu­tiara­ho­tels.com). First things first – you’re in the mid­dle of the jun­gle so there will definitely be mos­qui­toes, pos­si­bly mon­keys on the bal­cony and the wa­ter pres­sure is more than likely to be low. All that said, Mu­tiara has great staff who greet each guest like a friend, pretty good fam­ily-sized chalets, bunk beds for the kids, a sit-out liv­ing area good for card games, and best of all, the ho­tel or­gan­ises well-guided trips into Ta­man Ne­gara, thor­oughly en­joy­able for both adults and chil­dren (five years and above).

Pe­nang Mango Tree Place is a ho­tel where ‘happy souls’ can be found. Ser­vice is im­pec­ca­ble, the team is es­pe­cially wel­com­ing to kids, and chil­dren will enjoy the unique dé­cor. Free baby cots are avail­able. Their break­fasts lean to­ward lo­cal va­ri­eties, so take it as a safe in­tro­duc­tion to Pe­nang cui­sine. The ho­tel has two sites: Town­house 1934 and Hide­away. Book the court­yard suite at the Town­house – there’s a swing in the room.

PARKROYAL Pe­nang

Jalan Batu Fer­ringhi (04 881 1133/ www.parkroy­al­ho­tels.com). You can tell from your first step into the high ceilinged lobby of PARKROYAL Pe­nang that it’s a beach ho­tel through and through. Airy and spa­cious, the lobby ex­tends out to the breezy Ja­vana Lounge, where fans swirl lazily and guests re­cline on rat­tan chairs. Rooms and suites here are lux­u­ri­ous. Kids will es­pe­cially love the 70ft-long slide at the splash pool and bud­ding beauty queens can pop along to St Gre­gory’s, the ho­tel’s spa which of­fers ser­vices such as mani-pedis, hair-braid­ing and ju­nior fa­cials. Sun­day buf­fets are a high­light with clowns, games
