Member Story: Wyndham Legend Halong Bay – A True Legend And Beyond

By Member, Mr Mohamad Nassruddin Ahmad

Having joined as member in April 2017, we were bent on making the most of the privileged CWA membership.  We had thoroughly enjoyed Wyndham hospitality at Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket and Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay earlier. Halong Bay came up as our destination to commemorate the 2nd birthday of our grandchildren.   Both me and wife had stopped over in Hanoi before en route from Europe to our homeland in Malaysia but we didn’t get to see much of Hanoi then given time constraint.   

A Luxurious Getaway

Welcome to your newest Club Resort in Thailand – Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay

 

Home to pristine beaches, impressive white-sand islands and dramatic rock formations, it’s no wonder that Phuket has become a mecca for travellers from all over the world. Along with the world-famous Patong Beach, where you can discover the island’s premier shopping and thriving nightlife, a myriad of must-see destinations are waiting to be explored – from blue lagoons to pink sunsets and forested hills.

Phuket, the jewel of the Andaman Sea, captures the hearts of those longing for stunning seascape vistas, mountains and cliffs. Thailand’s largest island continues to evolve into a unique tropical paradise, delighting every kind of visitor.

Just north of Patong is the long stretch of Kalim Beach’s rocky shoreline, home to local vendors and famous street foods such as rice noodle soup, roti (pancake), grilled bananas and Thai ice cream.

To begin your exploration of everything luxurious Phuket has to offer, unpack your bags at Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay, your newest Club Resort, which elegantly sits clifftop and enjoys panoramic views of the sea.

 

Guide to Rotorua

 

Arrive at Rotorua and you immediately sense you are on a part of the planet unlike any other. A geothermal wonder, Rotorua’s bubbling springs and rumbling geysers tell you of its uniqueness.

Beyond the mist and steam, you will find sixteen beautiful lakes, serene waterfalls, wilderness trails, fantastic trout fishing, some of the world’s best mountain biking trails, adventure activities and much, much more!

If it’s Maori culture you seek, Rotorua delivers. A place steeped in history and tradition, the catch cry of Rotorua is ‘Manaakitanga’ meaning ‘feel the spirit’, and serves as a promise to deliver its guests an unforgettable and fascinating New Zealand experience.

Rotorua is also the perfect base to explore the nearby regions of Bay of Plenty, Taupo and Waikato.

Vietnam’s Natural Wonder Awaits

Introducing your new Associate Resort – Wyndham Legend Halong

The towering limestone peaks of Halong Bay dramatically rise from the emerald waters and create a naturally beautiful backdrop for Bai Chay Bridge and the newly built Sun Wheel – a spectacular structure that takes pride of place atop Ba Deo mountain.

As you drive into Halong Bay you leave the hustle and bustle of Vietnam’s major cities behind and step into a world of natural beauty. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Halong Bay in Quang Ninh province is a breathtaking seascape of limestone peaks and some 1,600 islands and islets.

Things to do in Phuket

 

Phuket is a favourite vacation spot because of its beaches, food and nightlife. It’s one of those affordable holiday destinations that you could take your entire family to without breaking the bank, or if you want to spoil your other half with some needed luxury.

Whether you want to dive in the Andaman Sea, explore the surrounding islands or immerse yourself in authentic Thai culture, Phuket has much to offer. Here, we recommend some of the must-dos when visiting the second-smallest province of Thailand.

Singapore: Asia’s City in a Garden

 

With its modern cityscape that features new-age architectural megastructures and countless skyscrapers, Singapore isn’t the first place that comes to mind when planning a back-to-nature style holiday. But this forward-thinking country is sometimes referred to as ‘a city in a garden’ – and for good reason!

Packed into Singapore’s compact 718.3 square kilometres is a surprising amount of greenery including more than 300 parks, four nature reserves and two extensive native tree conservation zones, all linked by a 200-kilometre park connector network. In a refreshing display of the beauty of nature in an urban setting, the streets are lined with trees and even the bridges and overpasses are draped in bright flowers.

Phuket: We have such wonderful memories to cherish!

 

Roy and June have been part of Club Wyndham Asia’s sister Club, WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham since 2006. They recently stayed at Wydham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket, and shared their holiday story.

My husband and I have just returned from the most magical holiday ever, we chose to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary at Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket as it was one of our favourite destinations. We had 2 glorious weeks at this beautiful resort, the setting was beautiful and the staff were brilliant especially Leon the Beverages Manager and Amy who served us at breakfast every day. They could not do enough to make our stay any better.
