Strategically located in between two merging rivers, amidst existing traditional villages, and only a stone’s throw away from the open sea of Pasir Puteh in Kelantan, the resort development proposal is expected to rejuvenate and elevate the essence of Kelantanese culture and traditional living to a greater height through its design approach, activities, and world-class facilities.

Inspired by the traditional Malay village settlements that evolve along the riverbank, the proposal takes a step forward in bringing back those fond memories into luxury living by introducing a man-made river into the resort. There will be 50 units of luxury one to three-bedroom villas (all enjoy river view), and 241 units of upscale room hotels with garden view.

Plenty of spaces created for cultural activities and facilities with pockets of themed gardens surrounding the resort, complete with a private jetty to cater for Island transfer and other water activities for in-house guests.

In addition, with the introduction of the public Cultural Village and modern ferry hub to Perhentian Island, which will be under Kelantan State Government management and support, the Grand Maris Resort development is expected to become another major travel destination for the East Coast region of Peninsular Malaysia.
