Looking for a romantic resort in Malaysia for your next getaway? Then The Kasturi Resort is definitely calling! This upscale boutique resort in Cherating comprises mostly of private pool villas as well as suites will be that private retreat you're dreaming of.

Located on the beaches of Cherating, this one-of-a-kind resort's tagline is 'embraced by land and sea', and that's exactly what you'll find! With the resort nestled between the beach as well as dunes filled with trees and greenery, you'll be surrounded by nature during your stay. There are only 23 rooms available, so you'll know you'll have a tranquil retreat away from the crowds here!

Whether you're a couple looking for a romantic getaway or friends planning a group getaway, The Kasturi has you covered as their villas and other accommodations can cater from two up to six people, depending on the type you choose. For those who opt for the villas, each of the beautifully-designed accommodations come with its own private pool, with the beach villas having a direct access gate to the beach. Besides the villas, there's also a Rooftop Penthouse as well as (cheaper!) Ocean View Suites and a Corner Studio located at the main building.

You'll no doubt be tempted to just lounge by your private pool in your villa during your stay, but it would be a shame not to check out some of the activities and experiences offered at the resort! Besides exploring the beautiful resort grounds, going for walks by the beach or kayaking on Sungai Pak Siak, be sure to check out the Rimbun Dahan Turtle Hatchery nearby! This conservation centre purchases turtle eggs which are sold locally, ensuring their safekeeping until the eggs hatch and the turtle hatchlings are released.  There's also an in-house restaurant (the aptly-named Kenyang Restaurant) where guests can dine.

The Kasturi is currently offering a few different promotional packages that cater to couples, honeymooners and others. Be sure to check out their Stay More, Pay Less package where you can stay for 2 or 3 nights and get an additional night free, applicable for stays from now until 30 Sep 2020!

Rate: Starts at RM590 for a Corner Studio, RM800 for the Ocean View suites and RM1,450 for the villas. Check out the full rates on their website
