You may have heard of the Le Grandeur Palm Resort, affectionately known among Singaporean holidaymakers as just “Palm Resort”. One does not need to have kids who like whacking balls to enjoy a retreat at this golf course with a tropical backdrop.
The food here is hot and delicious when served, and the locals recommend coming here for the Buka Puasa Buffet during the month of Ramadan. Check out their Gulai Kawah and Hari Raya Buffet lunches!
The Resort’s chef promises to whip up more than 150 varieties of Malay delicacies using his private recipes. Prices for the All-You-Can-Eat are around RM60++ per adult and RM30++ per child.
For families who’d like to stay the night, The reasonably priced Deluxe Room provides two comfortable Queen-sized beds. Facilities include a bowling alley, snooker and pool tables, an archery field, a tennis court, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a Mah Jong room. There’s enough to do here for the whole family, grandparents included.
On the way home, stop by the Giant Hypermarket in Skudai. You’ll get to stretch your legs and grab groceries at favourable prices.
PS: The hotel sometimes serves up Ghazal performances as well. A Ghazal is a love poem and a music genre that is especially popular in Johor. It is sung in Malay, but its songs reflect much Hindustani and Persian influence.
