"We stayed at Terrapuri for 1 night after the trip to Redang Island. We chose the seaview villa (Kedai Buluh). Though it's a bit overpriced and got only few facilities, we had a very pleasant stay there. We planned the trip beforehand like few months away, the sales co-ordinator continuously answered our enquiries without impatience and even provided us with some suggestions. During the trip, we were so much respected that we felt like ourselves were privileged. The staff were friendly, polite and served us earnestly.... Upon our arrival at Merang Jetty, the driver was already there waiting to pick us up to the resort. He got there 30 minutes earlier than we had arranged. Arriving the resort, we were welcomed at the reception and further confirmed our tours with the very best arrangements. At night, the staff guided us for the fireflies sanctuary. He was very kind and explained to us in detail about the living habits of fireflies. He helped us catch some of them and put in the bottle for memorizing the precious moments. It was very fun catching the fireflies but we set them free at last as they are wildlife. We also had the TGG city tour on the next day. The resort was silent, comfortable and vintage with artistic decorations which looks like a museum itself. There was a panoramic front beach, likely private, was sun embracing with relaxing sea breeze. You can picture how beautiful the environment is. We had a bicycle ride in the late afternoon. One tip - don't forget to spray the mosquitoes repellent & we would advise you to have dinner at your villa instead of Sesayap Courtyard."
