DESCRIPTION:
The resort is located on Pasir Panjang Besar, sandwiched by Redang Pelangi Resort and Redang Bay Resort. Journey from the dedicated jetty at Merang to the resort will take about 45 minutes.

UPDATE: The resort is currently closed for *renovation*, though I did not see any major construction works were being done during my visit. The resort is supposed to be re-opened for public on March 2006, but judging from my observation, it may be closed indefinitely.

UPDATE #2: The resort has reopened for business. Please contact the resort directly for further details as my review below might already be outdated.

FACILITIES:
The resort offers 8 Seaview Chalets and 5 Family Chalets. The units are made of nice timber materials that give the resort a nice kampong feel to it. Each room is equipped with air conditioner, attached bathroom and hot shower.

The main eatery at the resort is Seri Mayang Restaurant, offering regular breakfast, lunch and dinner servings.  For a nice and relaxing time, there are two bars to choose from: the Ed's Beach Bar or Bubbles Bar.

The resort also operates a dive shop within its compound.

ATTRACTIONS:
The resort is fronting the beautiful beach of Pasir Panjang Besar. A short walk to the right will bring you to Pasir Panjang Kecil which is equally mesmerizing, if not more spectacular when it comes to scenic beach views and powdery soft sands.

A boat trip can also be arranged to visit the Marine Park Jetty at Pulau Pinang, where good snorkeling can be done, or Pasir Kalong Beach for a relaxing time under the tropical sun.

There are plenty of snorkeling options near the resort too. You can try snorkeling at Tanjung Tengah, which separates Pasir Panjang Kecil with Pasir Panjang Besar, or at Tanjung Mak Cantik fronting Redang Reef Resort. A decent snorkeling trip can also be arranged to either Pulau Paku Besar or Paku Kecil by boat.

PRICING:
A normal 3D2N package will cost about RM340 on twin-sharing basis. The package will normally include return boat transfer from Merang Jetty to Redang, daily meals, lodging and 1-2 snorkeling trips.
