Summerbay Resort: A Truly Unique and Amazing Family Destination!

When most think of pristine beaches and clear water there are probably a lot of places that come to mind, but I can only think of one island and one resort that I would go back to over and over again. That place is Summerbay Resort on Lang Tengah. Malaysia has so much to offer travelers and Summerbay on Lang Tengah is one of those jewels.

Summerbay is just a 45-minute boat ride from the nearest airport and only about a 3 hour travel day from Kuala Lumpur. It was a super easy travel day for our family of four and we arrived at the island with plenty of time to check it out and do a few activities.

If you scuba, Summerbay Resort is a scuba divers paradise and some of the best dive sites can be found here. I can’t wait to go back and get certified! When you walk into the water and already see amazing and colorful fish before you even hit waist height water you know the diving is going to be spectacular.

As soon as our boat pulled up I was in awe of the blue waters and some of the most perfect sand I have ever seen. We had visited Oahu earlier in the year, but this was a completely different experience. The sand was unreal. After checking in I immediately had to go sit in the sand because it was so amazing.
Lang Tengah is one of the smaller islands in the area and you definitely won’t find a ton of restaurants so I highly recommend letting Summerbay take care of all your meals by booking one of their packages. You won’t be disappointed by the meals; the food was some of the best I have had at a resort. Some of the packages also include boat transfers and snorkeling trips which you will definitely want to do.

Summerbay Resort really goes above and beyond with the meals and even has an afternoon tea time as well. This was a hit with the kids after a long afternoon of snorkeling and hanging out on the beach. Everyone needs a little pick-me-up snack and drink! The kids absolutely loved the dinner buffet as well. Every night it was something different and fantastic. One night it was a steamboat dinner. We were able to grab noodles, meat, veggies and more and cook them up in a big pot. The kids loved being able to grab everything they wanted and then watch it cook up in a pot right on our table!

Summerbay Resort is incredibly family friendly and has rooms and activities to keep the whole family happy. I loved that the family room came with plenty of room for our family of four and also had two showers. This is great when everyone needs to take a shower after spending the day at the pool or beach. Summerbay Resort has an Olympic sized pool for another swimming option.

We used the pool a couple of times, but with such amazing waters right in front of you it can be hard not to always choose to jump in the sea. Within minutes of getting in you will see amazing fish. My kids loved watching the clown fish. My son was immediately yelling “Look mom it’s Nemo!” We even saw reef sharks which was a new one for us.

Our time at Summerbay Resort is one that our family will never forget. If you want a truly unique and amazing family holiday head over here to book your package!
