Sutra Beach Resort Terengganu
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Marang
Reviewed 14 April 2012

This so-called "resort" is anything but and badly in need of renovation. The "deluxe room" annotation for my "rustic" accommodation was a laugh, and I kept a sharp eye out for snakes while walking back and forth along a dimly-lit path to my "cabin." The hotel's restaurant is also pathetic, with lousy food and poor service.

Hotel design is nice with infinity pool view of the beach..
Beach is clean..

Very far location from Kuala Terengganu..
If you have own transport it would be good for mobility if not; then thats it!
Nothing much to do at the hotel..

The room is very small..
Dated decor / materials..

Food is nightmare..

The location of this resort is too far from nearest town. But good for honeymoon couples. Besides, breakfast serves with limited choices. I'll never go again

My recent stay at Sutra with my wife and son from 21 - 25 December 2011 were marred by a break-in incident in our room on the 23rd (early morning). The intruder break through the side window closed to the area where the airconditioned compressor are located. We loss all our cash, camera, iphone, garmin and watches in that early morning strive as we were sound asleep. We were there participating in the endurance event in Terangganu International Endurance Park. A police report was lodge and the promises of compensation has gone to the silent attitude of the hotel management and it insurance company. With agony and pain, we've no choice but to proceed with legal claims against the hotel for failing to provide proper security to the hotel guests.

My second visit after a long break. My first visit gave me and my wife a very lasting impression. We liked the room by the seaside. Listening to the sound of waves pounding the beach non-stop during our bedtime was something of a big change for a city dweller like us. But this visit revealed the state of neglect of this small but nicely designed resort, especially one of the star attraction - the pool. The water was dirty.

Room Tip: Sea side rooms are recommended

The location is rght by the beach and it is a long beach where you can walk for miles. Mid October is the beginning of the SE monsoon and the place is relatively empty. Food served in the restaurant is just ok and the swimming pool is nice.

We found some critters in the ground floor room and the staff were happy to move us to the 1st floor room. All systems worked well and we did enjoyed the 2 nights there.

We stayed there only for 1 night just before heading off to Redang. The location is only about 10 min away from the Merang jetty hence was convenient for us as we drove from KL. The hotel has a wonderful infinity pool that overlooks the ocean right in front! I think this is the best part of the hotel. The hotel is clean as we had a standard room only. All things work and the staff were friendly even though it was "puasa" month and service was relatively good although a bit slow. The beach in front of the hotel is really really nice and practically no one! You do have to walk out from the pool to get to the beach. Food is relatively decent and can't complain much. Breakfast is basic and simple but good enough to fill up the stomach.
