Flying a kite was a nice experience for us as a family last weekend. We were on a trip to Desaru, Malaysia during the Chinese New Year holidays. We stayed at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort & Spa for 2 nights and there were a lot of activities that we could engage in as a family. Just after the trip with lots of memories, I am not yet ready to write about our itinerary or travel guide to Desaru. Instead, I thought I will start sharing some photos of the beach activities and our resort experience in Desaru in photos. This is our first post sharing our experience on Flying a Kite at Desaru Beach on our day 1. If you like to read all the kids friendly activities in Desaru, check Desaru for Kids post. I shared most activities we did during the holiday.
Our son was the happiest when we spent the whole 3 days at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort playing with him. He is one of the children who was affected in their social experiences due to the pandemic. When he just started primary school in 2020, the pandemic hit with no outdoor playing. Living in an apartment, his most playing was indoors. This was a big concern for me over the few years.
Now, we are free to move compared to the few years during the pandemic. So, I plan trips or outings that help him to engage more with people and to do lots of outdoor activities. This beach experience is part of such a plan.
When we reached Desaru Lotus Resort, it was around 1 pm and we were hungry.Therefore, after check-in, the first thing we wanted was to have our lunch. 🙂 Among the few restaurants at the resort, we chose ‘Teratai Coffe House’ due to the availability of local dishes.
We ordered our lunch including Teh Tarik (Tea). We are tea lovers and we need our tea even on a sunny day. 🙂
The food was delicious and we could satisfy our cravings. After that, we decide to stay some time in our room before going to the beach.
Finally, it was our time to go to the beach! The first activity was to fly a kite. Before that kid received an icecream too. 🙂
Initially, the child was not so sure about how to fly a kite. But, my husband helped him. The Desaru beach was spacious and clean. A good place for flying kites with kids.
The beach was crowded with families on holiday.
It was a good bonding time for Father and son and for the three of us as a family.
Finally, kid started learning to fly a kite
Son was excited to fly a kite 🙂
At the time we were planning the trip, I couldn’t find detailed blog posts about this resort. Therefore, we packed a kite with us as we planned beach activities at Lotus Desaru Resort. But, there is a retail shop inside the resort premises where we could buy toys, kites, and other stuff to make our stay comfortable.
We had a fun time at the Lotus Desaru Beach Resort and flying a kite was one of the memorable experiences. In the coming weeks, I will share photos of other activities that we engaged in during our stay.
How was your week? Are there new activities that you engaged in? Do you love flying kites? Please share your thoughts.
