DESCRIPTION:
Among the most prominent resort on Salang beach. It is located to the left of the main jetty when you arrive by boat from Mersing. The resort is tastefully built in traditional Malay architecture that epitomises a laid-back village life.

FACILITIES:
There are family-type rooms, hill top chalets, sea view chalets, a mini market, two dive centers operated by B&J Dive and Fisherman's Dive (I've dived with the latter).

Some rooms are equipped with air conditioner, fridge and TV. During my 1st visit, I got a hill top chalet with fridge, air con and TV, all for RM55. My 2nd visit, the same RM55 got me another hill side chalet but with no fridge or TV. I guess the pricing was rather peculiar and probably depended on the type of season (Low, Peak, High, etc).

ATTRACTIONS:
The resort is on the main thoroughfare for tourists. It can get very bustling with activities especially when the bars, restaurants and gift shops are opened. The beach fronting this resort is not suitable for swimming. One better off going to Salang beach on the southern section of Salang village.

There are some good dive sites accessible from the village. Thus far, I've dived at Pulau Chebeh, Malang Rock, Salang Wreck (directly facing the resort by shore dive) as well as Salang Reef North. For snorkeling, walk to the southern section of the village at the sandy beach of Salang where some decent marine life could be found.

PRICING:
If I am not mistaken, Salang Indah Resort does not offer full board packages (3D/2N or 4D/3N, etc). I always opted for room-only package anyway because I can find places to eat on my own.

The chalet with fan goes for RM30/night, air-conditioned chalet (RM60), hill side air-conditioned chalet (RM80), air-conditioned chalet for 4 pax (RM120) and family air-conditioned chalet (RM150).
