Where to Stay in Terengganu

Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Terengganu

A fairly conventional, strongly Islamic state, the discovery of oil just off the coast of Terengganu has made it a prosperous settlement. Kuala Terengganu (the state capital) lies 160km south of Kota Bahru and evidence of its wealth is almost immediately apparent as high-rise office buildings and banks jostle each other for prime real estate in the busy commercial centre. The nouveau-rich city still bears the outward trappings of Muslim conservatism but for the casual visitor there’s immediate appeal from the Istana and Chinatown to the lively street markets and waterfront.

For those prepared to dive deeper, there’s offshore Pulau Dayong and the marine park at Pulau Redang. What more? Experience the state’s renowned interior when you venture inland to the famed Tasik Kenyir and Sekayu Waterfall. There’s a good deal of lodging choices here – you’ll find that the inexpensive options we’ve chosen for our Terengganu’s Editor’s Guide are a cut above the average and the deluxe ventures listed certainly put some of the best in the country to shame.
