DESCRIPTION:
D'Coconut Lagoon is the latest resort to be introduced in Pulau Lang Tengah. If I am not mistaken, it was operational since April 2004, and I was among the first few who took up the pre-opening offer to the resort in May 2004.

Being a relatively newer resort, I find that D'Coconut Lagoon was not bad at all! I actually loved the swimming pool, a basic and yet, looked and felt luxurious.

There are about 24 rooms in total at the East Wing completed back in 2004. As of early 2006, the newer West Wing was completed, adding another 21 rooms to the resort. In the East Wing, there are 7 standard rooms, 7 superior rooms, 5 deluxe low units, 4 deluxe high units and 1 family room. The new West Wing caters for more high-end patrons as witnessed by its room offerings - 16 executive deluxe rooms, 2 family rooms and 3 bungalows.

During my visit, electricity was cut down for one-hour twice-daily to refuel the generator. I am quite sure the resort has, since then, acquired a more stable electricity source.

Boats to Pulau Lang Tengah will depart from Merang Jetty, just like the boats to Pulau Redang. Just make sure you get to the correct jetty.

FACILITIES:
All rooms are equipped with A/C units, attached bathrooms, water heater, etc. The higher end ones will have bath tubs, mini fridges, coffee maker,  etc.

There are now two restaurants in the resort. During my visit, I ate at the restaurant in the East Wing for breakfast, dinner and lunch. No, there wasn't any other street vendors selling food around here due to its secluded location on Pasir Mat Hassan, hence eating at the restaurant was the only option available. While the food was none too memorable, the view from the second floor was. I usually took up the seat that provides pool- or ocean-view.

The resort also has its in-house dive centre. Pulau Lang Tengah itself has close to 20 dive spots, so if you are into diving, you can get your daily shots of underwater dive at the dive centre.

Just as there are two restaurants here, there are now two swimming pools as well, each at the East Wing and the West Wing respectively. 

ATTRACTIONS:
The beach fronting the resort is called it Pasir Mat Hassan. It is not that good for swimming due to the stony corals and sharp rocks, but you can take a dip if you want to. The water is quite crystal-clear although not comparable to the neighboring islands of Pulau Redang or Pulau Perhentian. There is some space for sunbathing, if not much, and you could be better off frolicking at the amazing pool.

Also some snorkeling can be done by swimming to the right section. According to the map, this place is called Karang Bahar. Unless you dive properly into this area, snorkeling will reveal nothing much except patches of corals and common fishes.

The best beach on the island is actually located some 10 minutes away by boat, fronting Blue Coral Resort and Redang Lang Island Resort. The beach is called Pantai Pasir Air which hosts crystal-clear waters and powdery-soft sands.

PRICING:
For 3D/2N twin-sharing full board package in standard room will cost RM340 per person, superior room (RM460/person), deluxe low (RM490/person), deluxe high (RM520/person), West Wing's executive deluxe (RM530/person) and bungalow (RM700/person).

The resort offers single supplement, triple- and quad-sharing, and the price will vary from the above. There are some discounts offered during the low season of Feb-Mar and Oct-Nov.
