The capital of Pahang and a popular getaway destination, Kuantan offers vacationers plenty of sunshine, excitement, and fun. With its location on the east coast, beaches such as Teluk Cempedak and Pantai Balok as well as other natural attractions such as the Berkelah or Rainbow waterfalls are some of the main attractions.
You’re on the correct track if you’re thinking about taking your family on a beach vacation to Kuantan during one of the upcoming long weekends. And to house your entire family, here are 8 family-friendly accommodations for you to enjoy and relax in while you are there!
1. Mawar Villa
The Mawar Villa is the perfect place to stay with your family – it is only a 6-minute walk to Balok Beach. Not only that, but Mawar Villa also comes with an outdoor swimming pool, free private parking, a bar, and a communal lounge. Additionally, you will be in close proximity to tourist sights and tasty dining options because of its convenient location in Kuantan’s Beserah neighbourhood. And if you run out of ideas on what to do, the people at Mawar Villa are more than happy to help you organise and plan fun events for your entire family.
2. Villa de Fedelia
Have your choice of Deluxe, Premium or Family resort-styled chalets at Villa de Fedelia Beach Resort – they are all brand new, wooden, traditional-styled chalets located in the tranquil village of Cherating. Don’t worry, the accommodations are cleverly landscaped so that guests have privacy and access to the sea views at Cherating beach. The location is ideal with plenty of dining options nearby and a major tourist attraction at the doorstep. They are also known for their focus on yoga and wellness with free yoga sessions available for guests. Sounds like something parents might need!
3. The Colony
I have actually stayed at The Colony before – it is a bungalow that was converted into a hotel that is centrally located near everything you need. It has a large lawn at the side where there’s a swimming pool. There is also a garden area at the back of the house that makes for good photography spots (I know because that’s what I did with my friends 😅). The rooms were clean and cosy. Although the rooms are not very spacious, The Colony would be perfect for smaller families and young children.
4. Laman Sentosa Boutique Hotel
One review has given high recommendation for this accommodation especially if you have a family with older kids. The Laman Sentosa Boutique Hotel is a bungalow style homestay with a cosy and comfortable environment. Many guests have also praised the minimalistic aesthetic and design of the building! It comes equipped with a swimming pool which the kids would love. In terms of convenience, the city centre and tourist attraction spots such as Teluk Cempedak are only a 10-minute drive away.
5. The Sky Inn
The Sky Inn in Kuantan offers lodging with a restaurant, free private parking, and an outdoor swimming pool. Teluk Chempedak Beach is a 2-minute walk away which makes its location ideal. There are quite a few restaurants and activities at the beach that you can enjoy with your family. Other nearby attractions include Taman Gelora, a scenic seaside park that would make for a fun picnic outing. Children would also get a kick out of visiting the Teruntum Mini Zoo that is nearby as well.
6. Villaku Residence
Villaku Residence is a lovely estate made up of two neighbouring villas (Villa A and Villa B). It is situated along Pantai Balok in Kuantan (approximately 30 minutes north of the well-known Teluk Cempedak). A suitable place for big family gatherings as the villas can have a maximum occupancy of 25 pax for each villa. Each villa has six bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom, as well as a huge living room, kitchen, and private pool. Even better, both villas include a terrace where you can have a BBQ and dine al fresco. If you don’t feel like cooking your own meal, there are plenty of restaurants serving delicious seafood in the area.
7. Le Lodge Mansion
Conveniently situated in the Kuantan city part of Kuantan, Le Lodge Mansion is quite the popular accommodation for big groups and even events such as weddings and company retreats. Rooms are huge and there is also a swimming pool that guests would love to use during our typical hot weather. The interior design of the place gives off a slight industrial vibe if you are the aesthetic kind. One of their main features is the rooms with an open-air bathtub – in case you ever wanted to soak under the stars.
Nestled in Kuantan, SilaLima is a bungalow guest house that rents out its rooms. Providing peaceful and modern accommodations, each room contains either a double bed or 2 single beds that can fit 2 pax. If you have a bigger family, you can consider renting more rooms which is what some of the guests did. Reviews of the accommodation also revealed how happy guests were with the location, environment and tranquillity of the guest house. A great option if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!
