Mynn Lee has travelled a lot. For six years, this KL-based mum has inspired readers through her travel blog, She Walks The World, chronicling her picturesque travel experiences alongside heartwarming tales of motherhood and tips for families embarking on their own wanderlust adventures.
"For me, a 'family-friendly' destination now means tighter SOPs and clear steps taken to ensure hygiene and health safety," shares Lee. "I love beach destinations, as it's easier to maintain social distancing during these times."
Lee shares with Tatler Malaysia her top recommended family vacation spots around Malaysia, starting with a luxe beach resort in her hometown of Kuantan.
Hyatt Regency Kuantan Resort, Pahang
Lee's favourite city spot by the beach is Hyatt Regency Kuantan Resort in Teluk Cempedak. The recently refurbished resort has two outdoor pools and family-oriented facilities like a kids zone with plenty of children's activities. Parents also have the option of treating their kids to a picnic overlooking nearby waterfalls, visiting a turtle sanctuary on Chendor Beach or taking an evening river cruise to watch fireflies along Cherating River.
Although the spa at Hyatt Regency Kuantan Resort is temporarily closed, guests can enjoy the swimming facilities here as well as the fitness centre, tennis court, the steam and sauna rooms. Dining at the Sampan Bar is a treat since it looks out on the beach.
