          price: i got this for RM 200+/- per night. for me its affordable for a big sea view room. old facilities but maintained well. breakfast: eventhough you are in terengganu, no traditional food of terengganu served. quite dissapointed. food serve are not up to my expectations for this price. pool/ beach : very clean and huge pool for kids and also adult. love the view. location: nearby area: most popular keropok lekor of merang: waited for 1 hour to get it, long que. overall: satisfied with my stay at this resort, will come again.

          Peaceful with wonderful views of the ocean, a superb beach, very helpful staff and delicious food

          we flew to kuala terengganu, picked up a rental car from zul at dyg travel and had aleisurely trip to sutra. ours was a beachfront unit which had an outside area for sitting to enjoy the views. before arriving we had read comments about tired units, that it was too far from shops etc. give us a break! a few minutes walk takes you to roadside food stalls as wall as a shop where no doubt some things could be bought. as for water, ours was replenished daily and we took a bottle in the car when going out for the day. this is a great place to stay and at the end of our holiday in mslaysia we have decided that when we return it will be straight to sutra and this time for longer than the all too dhort 3 days.

          THE BEST FAMILY DAY OPTION”

          this hotel is really suitable for those who wanted to spend time at hotel with family and those who love beach so much. this place is suitable for those who would like to organize family day. it is an old hotel but has good maintanence for the room except the toilets are a bit old school. some of the rooms that we booked also had problems with their flush. But they manage to overcome the problems right after we called them. i booked 10 hotels room online for my family day group. everyone was satisfy with the rooms except for bathrooms for some of them. the room is quite spacious and my expectation was wrong when i entered the room. it was clean n well maintain for an old hotel. but like i said they give fast respond to our complaints. the breakfast was quite good and they have lots of foods. i would like to give extra credit for their pool. they have big and spacious pool for kids and adults. we bought a unicorn float, and variety of floats to play with the kids at the pool. it was superbly fun and everyone enjoy our 2 days 1 night stay.. what made it more fun is that u can see the beach directly from the poolside. the beach is only 200m away and u can feel the breeze while chilling at the pool. we didnt spend time going out from the hotel since we enjoyed our short stay. we went to one of the restaurant nearby. The restaurant is D'perahu(masakan panas/seafood) like 5 mins away. they serve good food and gave us discounts since we add on more sets for our group

          Beach view room great. Casual, comfortable and relaxing. Good beach for kids/sand play. Lovely pool, very large. Great range for buffet breakfast. Restaurant menu good range. proximity to local street food great. Clusters of units spreadout so more open and minimal noise from neighbours. Very close to Merang jetty for access to island.

          Stayed at the Sutra Beach Resort for a short vacation with my family. On our first night, the AC was broken. The maintenance guy was very quick about it. Food was so and so. I think the resort should try to upgrade or refurbish the room at least, to give it a new fresh look. Overall, pleasant stay.

          As usual we spent one night at Sutra before heading to the Islands of the East Coast of Malaysia. Everything was as expected good value, great location in regards to the Merang Ferries, not to clean but not real dirty, staff is friendly and very quick to serve us. Facility is quite old and in need of renovation...one night is doable though as always!

          Loely place to spend a few days away from it all.”

          The beach is deserted and the pool is fabulous

          Having read that the accomodation was "tired", I was pleasantly surprised that it was not as bad as I expected. The paintwork was a bit chipped, but the location on it's own beach, the view over the sea from my balcony and a huge swimming pool where you could actually do some swimming more than made up for this. It was perfect for a few days - though maybe not for more than 4 or 5 because there's not really that much to do. The breakfast buffet was good and had enough western options but the a la carte food was not that great and expensive for what it was - maybe a result of there being no real competition. Also, despite booking their car to pick me up from Merang Jetty and take me to Koala Terrengganu upon my return from Pulau Lang Tengah, no one showed! This was a first for me since transportation in this part of the world is always SO reliable!!!

          Good for an escapism”

          After a very long quarantine period (PKP), we finally went for an escapism. Honestly speaking, we didn’t regret choosing Sutra Beach Resort to de-stress because it provides us a soothing atmosphere. The pool is closed by the time we stayed (to lower the risk of Covid-19 infection) but all we could say, the view at and from the pool is amazing. We could see the beach just from the pool. For breakfast, we paid for one extra person and the price is quite reasonable, looking at the food and beverages provided. We love the taste of gulai ikan aya! All in all, it’s a great place to spend time with beloved family. Nature lovers must enjoy this place the most.

          Hotel with Good Service”

          Staffs are very helpful

          i would considered the hotel as chalet. the chalet was near the sea so it's very breezy & peaceful. it's far from town but near the merang jetty so to get to the nearby island by boat, it's so convenient. the hotel provides assistance for renting a car & day trip to redang. thumbs up for the breakfast as they changed the main menu everyday. the staffs were friendly & helpful too. about the accommodation, the furnitures are quite old but spacious for seaview deluxe room. in fact, can put in another two more beds. except they had to re-construct the floor tiles of the toilet. the water seems to get flooded after shower.

          Pool, Closeness to neverending beach, breakfast

          It was a good stay over waiting for the ferry to Redang, but the ferry to Laguna Resort doesn't go from Merang, it goes from the harbour front in Kuala Terenaggu, so we were 20-30km north of ferry landing. Our mistake. Otherwise a good beachside hotel.

          Decent hotel for stop-over on the way to islands”

          Location

          I stayed at Sutra Beach Resort as a stop-over on the way to Pulau Lang Tengah. My main reason for choosing this hotel is its proximity to the Jetty. I arrived late and left early in the morning and therefore did not have time to check out anything except the restaurant. However, here are some of my observations: 1)First impression was good. Hotel lobby and common areas looked good and classy. 2)Room was roomy and comfortable, but fittings need to be upgraded. The cabinet door in the bathroom was literally rotting off its hinges 3)There were no towels in our room. When we requested for towels, we were given their pool/beach towels. I guess they ran out. 4)We went to the restaurant for dinner and ordered from their ala-carte menu. It took 45mins for 3 out of 4 of our dishes to arrive. After 1hr of waiting, they told us our 4th dish could not be prepared because the oven was broken. We were not pleased, but they made up for it by accepting my suggestion that we dine on the buffet spread with no extra charge.

          Quiet Retreat ”

          The beach, the balcony and the view of the sea.

          This was my second visit to Sutra Beach Resort. The view of the sea is what draws me to the this resort. It was better maintained 6 years ago during my first visit. There is clearly a change in management and the service level has fallen. Though not well-maintained, the deluxe sea view rooms are the best. You can forget all your worries sitting on the balcony with a cup of tea in your hand and watching the sun rise and set over the sea.

          Wonderful weekend getaway”

          The beach, the location and the pool

          We stayed for a night for our anniversaey getaway and we booked a seaview deluxe room. It was amazing! Just pay a bit more from the standard room and you'll get a view to die for. Our chalet faced the sea towards the island and we've got to watch the sunrise as well so that was very romantic. At night you can hear the gentle breeze and soft waves crashing upon the shore so definitely go for the seaview option. Absolutely worth every penny. The room itself was clean and spacious. The staff was helpful enough and checkin/checkout were uneventful. The infinity pool was decent and we had fun. Breakfast was ok nothing special but plenty of options. My only complaint is the bathroom. It was a bit rundown and extra cleaning wouldn't hurt. Otherwise we had a good time in sutra and would definitely come again.
