Resorts World Kijal
Redang Island and Kapas Island are some of the spots that come
to mind when you think of the East Coast state of Terengganu. However, there is a lesser known town by the
name of Kijal. Here, a peaceful and tranquil resort by the name of Resorts
World Kijal is located.
Overlooking the undulating waters of the South China Sea,
the resort boasts a 7.6 kilometre stretch of private beach, complete with a
18-hole golf course. Take a short trip from Kuala Lumpur for approximately 3
hours to get to the resort by car.

The resort is proud of its turtle releasing activities as
the only hotel in Malaysia to offer this unique activity. Although the turtle
watching season is usually from April to September, the location varies depending
on the season at Resorts World Kijal, Turtle Sanctuary Ma Daerah Kerteh and
Pantai Teluk Mak Nik Kuala Kemaman. Although many turtles are released during
the season, sadly only 1 out of 1000 of the babies survive. One interesting
trait about turtles is that they stay true to their origins as they usually
return to the same beach 20 years later.
This experience is available to guests at the resort at RM49
per person for baby hatchling release and egg planting or RM70 for tutle
watching. Room packages are also available 3D2N at RM682 per room per night for
