The resort is one of the oldest in the CM portfolio: it is fair to say, the main buildings could use a proverbial lick of paint.
Much more importantly, though, the atmosphere of the resort and the service are what one would expect from Club Med: efficient, quick ... in a word: excellent.
The resort caters to children, but also offers 'quiet zones' around pools and restaurants, off-limits to those younger than 18.
There is a range of activities, including sailing, tennis and flying trapeze. My girlfriend went for the later two, while I attended the sailing school, with Arti and Rodrigo both boundlessly energetic and experienced sailors blessed with oodles of patience and a knack for explaining complex things to a novice me.
The circus team, led by Robin, is fantastic: professional, positive and very supportive, whatever you (try to) do! Unfortunately, the morning lessons - common in other CMs - are not available: not enough tennis players, it seems!
We'd also mention Mohammed from Housekeeping: probably the most efficient room cleaner we've ever had, with a talent for creating all manners of wild creatures from room towels.
To all the Club Med Cherating Beach staff and management (Elyes in particular), MANY thanks for making our stay so pleasant.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cherating Beach seems to perch on the east coast of Malaysia. The pace of life in this 80-hectare Resort, complete with bungalows on stilts nestling amid lush vegetation, is set by the comings and goings of the macaque monkeys, gibbons, monitors, rare birds and multicoloured butterflies. Here you can enjoy one pleasure after another, none of which is anything like the last - an excursion in a dugout canoe, a relaxing session at the Club Med Spa or a cocktail at the bar, to name but a few. ... more less
