Cherating has a reputation of a great east coast beach so I was more than surprised to see the
upkeep of the stretch of sand behind Suria Cherating Beach Resort being sadly neglected.
Neglected maybe too harsh a word to describe it,
but, I had a sense that Suria Cherating were not
taking full advantage of the glorious location they are
There are stubs of tree stumps on the beach edge and
the remaining trees have shedded many twigs from
their branches that have not been cleared.
The Suria Cherating Beach Resort is rated as a 3 star
hostelry, it has 114 rooms available and is suited to both
business and leisure travellers.
As well as the outdoor swimming pool the Suria
Cherating can furnish the needs of sports and nature
lovers with their facilities and packages available at
the hotel. There is also a gym, karaoke and lobby
lounge as well as sauna and steam facilities to enjoy.
During my stay in a twin garden room I found it to be
clean and the staff were polite with that famous east
coast smile, but I got the impression they were more
reactive to dealing with issues than proactive by seeing
them before guests and dealing with them.
Backing onto the most famous beach in Pahang the Suria Cherating Beach Resort resides in a
cherished beach location that promises much but delivers less.
The Suria Cherating Beach Resort in still a popular hotel
in Pahang however, I feel like a school teacher writing
at the bottom of a report "could do better".

There is a distinct lack of
lighting both going towards the
beach and at the beach edge
whereby discouraging people
from venturing down to the
golden white sands at night.
If the Suria Cherating Resort
could provide basic beach
maintenance it would make
their prized natural asset a lot
Suria Cherating claim to be a
beach resort so why not
provide seating, tables and
parasols in an effort to
enhance their guests resort
The room design was borne from Balinese artistic
influences with teak wood furnishings and combined
with the amenities expected of a modern day beach
I sincerely believe they can do better with a more
regimented attention to detail approach and by working
on their image to subtly influence guests minds that
they are staying at a better east coast beach resort.
There are old logs, the remnants of felled trees that give the impression the management of the hotel do not see the full potential of their privileged beach side position.
Word of mouth would then do the rest and an increased influx of guests would eventually be the result.
