"A pleasant stay in Kalong" Redang Kalong Resort Tip by ylt1983

Redang Kalong Resort, Pulau Redang: 252 reviews and 9 photos

Kalong is especially good for divers, given its professional diving center, but also a wonderful place for non-divers. My girlfriend and I spent a 4-day there. We get a room with seaview for about RM1000 and it is quite value for money. The staff there is very friendly and the food is quite up to standard. On top of all necessity that the resort provides, they have all sorts of recreational facilities (although frankly, you would hardly use them after two exciting snokelling trips), ranging from indoor games, such as mahjhong, KTV, games, pools, to outdoor games, such as canoe (yeah, it feels so great to sail on the sea), beach volleyball, etc. Basically, everything is perfect except for sands. Sands on the beach of Kalong is not as good as Laguna. The beach where Kalong is located is full of corals while the sands on the beach in front of Laguna is super fine. But anyway, beaches are open to everyone and you can visit Laguna's anytime so why pay more? By the way, for non-divers, Kalong is offering 4-day Open Water Diving Courses for about RM4000 only. My girlfriend and I are thinking of taking that course next time when we visit Redang.

Unique Qualities: Seaview room is awesome, much better than Laguna's due to the closeness of the room to the beach. Staff is friendly and you can get personal attention to your every small request. The diving course is definitely another attractive point.
