Family Staycation @ Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort, Carey Island

One hour drives to a perfect gateway during this school holiday. Sounds good to you? That’s what we did last weekend driving to the north of Banting heading to Amverton Cove @ Carey Island that is about 72 km from our home at Setapak. It was a fun and memorable staycation, a truly incredible experience especially for my kids to get them close to nature.
Amverton Cove is my ideal staycation for family with small kids like me. They have everything under one roof. Beautiful place and well maintained resort, facilities for the both adult and kids can enjoy, and help to rejuvenate you at the Sompoton Spa. Sneak away from the city center for two days is enough to energize ourselves.

We reached early at 12.30noon and the check in was fast.  The friendly resort staff greet us with welcome and we met Mr. David, the General Manager of Amverton Cove showing us around what are the resort facilities and some of the activities that he has arranged for us.

We choose the set lunch that comes with large pot of fish meat curry, omelette and mix vegetables. Also comes with a platter of rojak buah. All this for RM 75++ suitable for family of 2-3 pax. We add on crispy chicken wing which I highly recommended. The chicken meat was juicy and tender! All food are prepared upon ordering.

Delicious meal and we are so contented..
My kids are aiming at the opposite small island nagging me to bring them to the animal island. They can't sit longer and waiting excitedly to jump on the boat ride. All of us need to wear the life jacket and my boy are quite afraid of that. He refused to wear it at first. I need to struggle abit here. Ok..we are set to go! It's my first time bringing them to have boat ride with life jacket on..wow..what a nice experience yeah..

Loving this place so much. I need to take more pictures of the beautiful morning view here. Nature's beauty at its' best




The most funny moment whereby my kids keep telling me they are very scared of the insects here. They keep asking me what is that? Where is comes from? Why the insects is there?  I need to recall some of the insects name. It’s a good experience for them.  Butterfly, bettle, spider, dragonfly, worms, red ants, ants, weird insects as what they claimed and much more. Mummy and daddy can’t stop laughing looking at them why they are so afraid. The next round mummy will planned for further exciting trip to beach resort and they could get new experience and more excitement! Perhaps monkey standing at the balcony or hornbill standing beside you waiting for food at the restaurant.
