Not many people venture out to the pristine East Coast of Malaysia, but you definitely should. The much-loved Tanjong Jara Resort in Terengganu is steeped in heritage and culture and is a great option if you're travelling with your parents.
Spend quality time together and sign up for a cooking class, where you'll get to take a trip to the morning market, and learn traditional Malay home cooking by a local culinary master. Alternatively, embark on a nature hike with the resort's resident naturalist.
Don't quote us, but the best way to spend quality time (without all the distractions) is to get everyone stuck on an island. The Maldives may be littered with "honeymoon suites", but if you're going with your family, Club Med Kani is a great resort destination.
The best part is the all-inclusive Club Med experience. Read: Accommodation, food, drinks, water activities, and entertainment are included. Whether you're wakeboarding with your mum and dad or challenging yourself and picking up a new skill at the Flying Trapeze School, it's fun for the whole family.

Jump onboard a ferry and head to neighbouring Bintan, where you can go glamping at Natra Bintan (formerly known as The Canopi).
Located within the Treasure Bay Bintan, the resort sits directly facing Southeast Asia's largest man-made lagoon. Get your adrenaline pumping and take part in some wakeboarding action, or choose to take it slow and kayak on a lazy morning.
Bali is always a good idea. Head to the island of the gods and immerse yourself in the ambience of a tranquil Balinese village at Intercontinental Bali.

The suites and villas showcase Bali's unique artisan and cultural heritage, blending local craftsmanship with five-star hospitality.
