I have a group of friends coming in from Jakarta and wanted to visit KL as well as a nearby beach. So we thought rather than the same old boring PD, there is a choice of either in Selangor or Malacca. My friends didn't realize that there is a strip of beach in Selangor except what they heard online and asked me to drive over one weekend to have a look before they booked for Sep
So drove I did and was surprised. The drive to the resort is very scenic and you will see some quaint towns and villages, all very charming and nice
At the resort, first impression was quite good. So we drove in and parked and walked around. First up, we couldn't find a lift to go upstairs. Then we went around to see the theme park and basically, it is a pool with water slides and a couple of other things. This would please anyone who has not been to Genting or the travelling amusement parks
Finally we walked out to the most impressive feature which is like a bar/ restaurant in the sea. This has a charm of its own. We sat at a table and no one came to serve us. After nearly 20 minutes, we walked to the center and asked the waitress for menus. She came and took orders and a number of the cooked snacks were not available
You can forget about replenishing your drinks. Even though there was only 2 other small tables besides ours, no one bothered to check until we want to pay the bill. Then we have to walk again to ask them and to pay
Ambience at the bar is nice
Unfortunately, we are not going to book there for our Indonesian friends as it is very poor service and maintenance. So Malacca it is!
