Our Family Adventure at Alun Alun Island Resort

Pulau Besar, a tropical island paradise off the coast of Johor, Malaysia, beckoned our family with its promise of sun, sand, and adventure. We opted to stay at the Alun Alun Island Resort, and let me tell you, it was the perfect choice for our family getaway!

Island Welcome for the Whole Crew

The moment we arrived at Alun Alun, we were whisked away from the everyday. The resort staff greeted us with warm smiles and refreshing coconut drinks, immediately putting our family at ease. Our room, a spacious beachfront chalet, boasted a balcony overlooking the shimmering turquoise water. The kids couldn't wait to throw open the doors and race out to explore.

A Playground for Young Adventurers

The resort was a haven for our energetic little ones. The sparkling swimming pool became their afternoon playground, splashing and laughing for hours. We built sandcastles on the pristine beach, watched hermit crabs scuttle across the shore, and collected colorful seashells. The staff even organized a fun treasure hunt around the resort, keeping the kids entertained and engaged.

Island Adventures for Everyone

Alun Alun offered activities for everyone. My husband and I embarked on a thrilling kayaking adventure, exploring hidden coves and paddling along the island's picturesque coastline. We even spotted a playful pod of dolphins frolicking in the distance! Back at the resort, we joined a family snorkeling excursion, marveling at the vibrant coral reefs teeming with colorful fish.

Memories Made Over Meals

Sharing delicious meals became a cherished part of our family time. The resort's restaurant offered a wide variety of options, catering to both adventurous and picky eaters alike. We feasted on fresh seafood dishes, enjoyed sizzling BBQ nights, and indulged in tropical fruit platters.  The open-air setting, with the sound of waves gently lapping in the background, created a magical ambiance for every meal.

Beyond the Resort Walls

We ventured beyond Alun Alun to explore the island further. We hired bicycles and cycled through charming fishing villages, soaking up the local atmosphere. The kids were fascinated by the colorful fishing boats and the friendly smiles of the islanders. In the evenings, we enjoyed browsing local markets, picking up unique souvenirs and handmade crafts.

Family Bonding by the Beach

Some of our most cherished memories were created simply relaxing on the beach. We built bonfires under the starlit sky, roasted marshmallows, and shared stories and laughter. The sound of the waves lulled the kids to sleep, creating a sense of peace and tranquility.

A Perfect Escape for Families

Alun Alun Island Resort exceeded our expectations for a family getaway. It offered the perfect blend of relaxation, adventure, and quality time together. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, ensuring our every need was met.  From the comfortable accommodations to the delicious food and exciting activities, Alun Alun catered to everyone in our family, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Would We Recommend Alun Alun? Absolutely!

If you're looking for a family-friendly island escape in Malaysia, Alun Alun Island Resort is the perfect choice. It offers something for everyone - relaxation for parents, adventure for kids, and a chance to create lasting family memories in a stunning island paradise.
