Where to Stay in Cherating
Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Cherating
Relatively unknown outside of Malaysia, Cherating is an east coast beachside destination that plays host to Asia’s first established Club Med. Located approximately 50km north of Kuantan, the swiftly-growing travellers’ haunt hugs the northern end of a windswept cove, sheltered from the wind by the cover of a rocky cliff. The area is a blend of kampung life and hippy hangout with a laid-back pace of life, ramshackle stilt villages tucked amidst palm groves and beachfront bars. Accommodation options range from simple chalets and modest home-stays that are perfect for the budget conscious visitor, to trendy mid-range options for those looking to holiday in style. Ideal for windsurfing, it should come as no surprise that dining is the main focus of nightlife in Cherating but there are a few bars that offer lively alternatives.Read More
