        A Diamond ”

        This is the best resort I have been in Cherating. They have set an unbeatable standard to other 5 stars resorts. The owner, Hijas Kasturi is a team player in architectural world. I was blessed to be staying here, in a wonderful suite right in front of the beach. Every little touch they prepare for us made us feel very welcomed. The personalised letter, the welcoming drink, the fruit basket of tropical fruits made us touched our heart. The bed was very huge and comfortable, the living area was perfect with modern-traditional fusion that reflects the great mastermind of the designer. The big glass wall allowed sunlight to enter our suite and the view was majestic. They prepared us our own coffee machine at the small pantry. All amenities provided were of high class. The bathroom was very clean with clear window direct to the blue sea. The staffs were very friendly and courteous. I am going to be a regular here.

        For those who love beach, pool and the natural forest. This is the awesome place to choose. Staff, facility, cleanliness all maintained. Just don't left food outside the villa since the monkeys will share your food too. Nice beach and you can enjoy the sunrise by your villa or the beach. Easy access to the private beach and shower was provided before entering the villa. Beach activities such as playing the kite and volleyball beach will be an added value. Open shower was stunning. Shower with nature concepts and they provide with tanamera. Just to be improve on the breakfast menu. Limited menu and the chef need to be more friendly. Range of menu need to be upgraded. The breakfast is not value for money and also limited space. We need to wait almost 15 minutes to have a breakfast. Baby chair also need to add more since only 2 baby chair provided Overall is awesome just for the breakfast and the chef

        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.

        We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach villa for two nights in January 2019. This villa comes with private pool which we enjoyed very much. This villa has direct access to the beach but it is not suitable for swimming. The restaurant and gym are located at the main building within a short walking distance from the villa. The staff are very polite and attentive. The Kasturi provides the spa room, but it is not recommended to have any spa package here as they have to call external party to provide the service. We enjoyed our stay very much and will return in the future,

        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.

        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

        It’s been a great three days two nights stay. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. Room been upgraded and we really did enjoyed our stay. Wish I could enjoy the pool unfortunately was raining. No complaint with my stay. Recommended eventho it’s only one year old baby for this resort. Sadly if u guys want to drink after 10pm the bar is close and can’t order alcohol. Room service food was good. Wifi was slightly slow but room TV can be better in terms of more varieties of smart TV movies.

        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.

        The Kasturi is not only a place to relax and unwind but also a place to appreciate the beauty of nature and work of art. The villa is very generous in space and equipped with thoughtful amenities for whole family. Whether you are a family or couple, if you are looking for privacy, comfort and luxury, the Pool Villa (whether one bedroom or family) is where you want to be. Not many resort in Malaysia offers such accommodation at reasonable price. Kids will love the pool, although slightly small for adult to have a meaningful swim - you can always try the public pool :) The food quality and taste is another aspect we love about the place, although lunch menu is limited but dinner is excellent. All the resort staff are friendly, accommodating and courteous.
