Plan your next fun-filled family holiday across the causeway at Cyberview Resort & Spa located just 20-minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur. The resort is surrounded by lush greenery with their award-winning gardens and exotic palm trees. There’s no end to the list of entertainment and activities available for the whole family – from swimming, spa treatments, bike riding, basketball, tennis to even fishing in the resorts’ own lake! The kids can spend hours of fun occupied at the Jungle Jam Kids’ Club with tonnes of colouring activities, toys, games and cartoon-screenings. Don’t fret if you can’t decide on what to eat because the resort offers a good selection of enticing dining options from pan-Asian, Italian to Chinese food. It’s comforting to know that we don’t have to travel too far to experience tranquillity and bliss.
Located in Busuanga on the idyllic Palawan Islands of the Philippines, Huma Island Resort and Spa is a spectacular premium hideaway. You’ll definitely be distanced from the hustle and bustle of the big city, as it is approximately an 80-minute plane ride to get to Manila. The luxurious family suite is your home away from home, featuring 2 spacious bedrooms and your very own mini-pool within the compound makes it a convenient choice. The resort is filled with leisure, sports and relaxation activities for everyone. The little ones can hang out at the kids club (which is just a stones-throw away from your villa) and the slightly older ones can ride on a banana boat, go crazy on the water trampoline or go snorkelling at the nearest beach. The whole family will get to enjoy the best selection of global cuisines from International, seafood, tapas, Asian, Italian to Lebanese. You could even keep cool by getting your hands on some icy, refreshing Filipino sweet treats like halo-halo!
