Located in Kuala Terengganu, the Ri-Yaz Heritage Marina Resort & Spa (hotel info) is a wonderful secluded resort near the Terengganu River. This is an elaborately designed hotel offering the best of Malaysian hospitality and luxury.

Ri-Yaz Heritage Marina Resort & Spa is just 7.8 km away from Kuala Terengganu city center. Kuala Terengganu is just under an hour’s flight from the capital Kuala Lumpur, on the east coast of the Malaysian peninsular. From the airport, a shuttle is available to and from the resort for your convenience.
Only few resorts in Kuala Terengganu offers such an extensive range of attractions and heres my review of the Ri-Yaz Heritage Marina Resort & Spa Hotel (check rates).
Clean and Huge Bathroom
The Ri-Yaz Marina is a world class facility, featuring berths for both super yachts and other vessels. It lies in a sheltered storm protected harbor, ensuring no sea surges or wakes.
The marina provides all modern services for yachts, including internet connectivity, laundry, propane gas filling, uninterrupted electricity supply, a sauna and fitness centre etc. There are beautiful wooden walkways with stunning views. The Marina is the home of the Monsoon Cup, which is held there every November.
My Room for two nights
Situated away from the city in a secluded area, the Ri-Yaz Heritage Marina Resort & Spa offers a tranquil setting for the ideal holiday. The hotel has beautifully landscaped gardens, with all round views of both the waterfront and the river.
The hotel features well-built wooden chalets situated away from the main areas for privacy and peace. A buggy service is available for easy movement as no vehicles are allowed in the chalet area for maximum tranquillity. There are also very spacious rooms opening out to balconies with great views of the River or the sea.
All room amenities are available including flat screen TVs, DVD players, Wi-Fi connectivity and efficient room service. There is a large pool with a nice wooden walk area, and includes a kid’s pool. There is a fully equipped Spa, a fitness centre and a children’s playground.

The east facing main restaurant is very spacious and affords stunning marina and sea views, and sights of the River mouth, during both the day and night. The buffet breakfast spread is excellent and combines a wide range of local delicacies and international cuisine.
Veranda of Cemara Duplex Rooms
There are plenty of activities offered at the Resort including sailing at the Marina, hiking and bike trails into surrounding areas. Take an excursion to the many sites around Terengganu including:
• Masjid Terapung, a beautiful mosque on the artificial lake at the Ibai River.
• Terengganu China town, a great place to sample lovely Chinese and local Malaysian cuisine.
• Terengganu State Museum.

It is imperative to avoid the wet seasons (year-end) as the occasional downpours will disrupt your outdoor plans. If you decide to be adventurous, you could also plan a snorkeling trip by traveling out to the nearby islands such as Pulau Kapas. The resort and areas around the town will make this an unforgettable holiday destination.
