        Love the place! ”

        Pros - the space is further away from busy area which I love - staffs are super friendly and helpful - you’re kinda one with nature here Cons - it’s pretty clean, just a little effort on the housekeeping side would help. Checked in to slightly dirty pantry and there was lizard poop on our table at the main place. Minor issues, can definitely be fixed. - maybe can add more facilities. - can have more variety for breakfast and also need to fix the creme brulee. It was baddddd.

        Excellent stay for extended family”

        Booked 2 units of 3-bedroom villas for the extended family, was very much well worth it. The convenience of having everyone together, coupled with the privacy accorded for each villa (we requested for two adjoining villas) made for a very memorable experience. Rooms were spacious, with generous complimentary food and drinks refilled each day. The best part is the private pool - it's just that kind of holiday where you'd just want to laze around given the large group and yet still let everyone enjoy themselves. The grandkids frequented the pool daily and the adults had fun too on the pool deck. If you're planning a luxurious, peaceful outing for an extended family this is the place to stay.

        The result is very new and very exclusive with only 24 room/bungalow with individual pool. It located at the most north of Cherating and very serene. The staffs are very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast, facilities and amenities are excellent. However, due to strong wave on monsoon season, the work on strengthen the beach is on going.

        Lovely setting only 3 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. Very pretty hotel and excellent location. Nice beach despite the breakwater if you walk 50 metres. Breakfast OK (for Malaysia hotel) . Hotel restaurant very nice for evening dinner. A bit short staffed and everything not perfect but they try really hard and make the place really nice.

        Dear Karen, Many thanks for your favourable review of our resort! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and especially happy that you found the service and our staff welcoming and friendly. Opening the resort has been a wonderful experience for us as well, and we too have found the welcome of east coast people to our project has been exceptional. I do hope you also experienced the turtle hatchery and participated in the release ritual… we have been devastated by the recent death of Pak Su, our hatchery manager, but we are determined to continue the project. Thanks again for the review, and we look forward to welcoming you again next year. Best wishes for the New Year. Angela Hijjas

        The scenery was amazing. Suitable location for short break. Facilities are limited, such as gym. Too bad we couldn’t access the beach. Breakfast was simple, there’s only one main, which is nasi lemak.

        Dear Aainaa, Many thanks for your review of the Kasturi on Agoda! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay, and I have taken up your issue with the breakfasts... We are constantly training our staff, and welcoming and explaining the choices to guests is critical… my apologies that you weren’t advised of the full breakfast selection. Access to the beach also will be improved once the present monsoon is past. The gym is small, and our choice of activities is limited, but our objective is to provide a quiet venue with a strong environmental ambience rather than a busy experience…. It is a place to unwind and relax and we hope that you enjoyed that experience! Best wishes, Angela Hijjas

        2-Bedroom Beachfront Villa”

        Stayed 2 nights in the villa with private pool and we enjoyed our stay very much. Hotel staff fulfilled all my special request prior to check in as I travelled with my parents. Spacious bedrooms with a fantastic sea view. Wish the hotel could provide a bigger table at the ground floor living room. Breakfast is simple and yet delicious. There's a complimentary mini bar at each floor. It's an eco-friendly concept resort, nice environment with low density of guests which it's worth the price. Maybe the resort could consider to provide complementary drinking water in a glass bottle instead of plastic bottle (like the hotels in Thailand) as this is an eco-friendly resort. Certainly will return to The Kasturi after they have completed their ongoing beach project.

        Dear Nyok Liao, Many thanks for your kind review on Agoda! And for your suggestion about water in the room. I have instructed housekeeping to stop providing water in bottles unless the guests prefer it, and to provide boiled, filtered water in re-usable bottle. We have tried hard to make the construction of the resort as sustainable as possible, by using recycled timber wherever we can, and keeping the trees for a low density resort, but we can always improve and appreciate your suggestions. I hope that we will welcome you again at the Kasturi! Best wishes, Angela Hijjas

        Staff is excellent. Very polite and accommodating. One bedroom private villa with swimming pool is just what we need as a family. The whole room area is very large. Bathroom is spacious and outdoor shower is a plus point. It is very private and luxury and you don’t actually meet other visitors. We love it. Also, bring your kids to the turtle hatchery place for extra activity. It is only about 5mins away from the Kasturi

        Serenity at its best!”

        I really loved my 3 nights and 4 days stay at the kasturi, the hotel's location are very near with the town so you can easily find food with so many options available. I stayed in the 2 bedroom beach villa, it was huge for 4 people and having a private pool had made it even better. The place was very quiet and private, however if you are not into nature you will not love this place as much as I do, because you can easily see monkeys and bees running around the hotel ground, but none of them were harmful to us. Breakfast was okay, wish there were more food options. Overall it was a great stay, would love to see all the wonderful and friendly staff there.

        Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at the resort. The only disappointment was that the beach was affected from the previous monsoon and that they had to put barriers by the beach to avoid further damage; hence, if you want to go to the beach, go the nearest public beach.
