Gold Coast Morib Resort is THE only resort in Morib that has its own water park smack in the middle of the resort itself so far. Yerp, you read that right – a water park. But don’t expect Sunway Lagoon scale here. The water park at Gold Coast Morib Resort is just a nice decent outdoor water park that the whole family can enjoy and have a bit of a chill without worrying much about a huuuuge crowd and super long queue. Oooooh yeah! Definitely the kind of water park that I like. Read: short queue even on school holidays.
First, where exactly is Gold Coast Morib Resort and how to get there. Obviously, it is in Morib - been known for the loooong stretch of beach overlooking the Straits of Malacca in Selangor. To find your way here is a bit tricky because the signage is NOT on every corner of the road. Unless you are soooo familiar with the area, I suggest that you navigate your way using your trusted GPS system or in my case, I use the handy app – Waze. Found my way there with no hassle at all!
Mind you it was a school holiday when I went there. I arrived at around noon. Although there seems to be ample parking space provided but it was quickly snapped up later in the evening with a few tour buses too. Most that made their way here were families.
So my friends and I headed to the reception area for check in process. We were given access cards to our rooms and also wristbands to enter the water park. We bought our package from Matta Fair which includes 2 days 1 night stay, 2 days entry to the water park and 1 buffet breakfast. Sweeeeet!
One good thing when it comes to Gold Coast Morib Resort water theme park is, if you seem to lose sight of your kids, well you can find ‘em in just minutes! The park is not that big, just a few glances here and there, you can easily spot your kids somewhere in this water park. That’s going to be a huge relief huh!
Now, if you're not a fan of water park. Then there are a few other activities than can keep you occupied here. ATV was on our list. So, my friends and I head out to the sandy beach. Walked out a short distance to where the action is right next to the resort, just a couple blocks away from the water park. If I remember it correctly, I forked out RM50 for half an hour ride. We went round and round the broad sandy beach killing time and stopped here and there for pictures.
It was a nice weekend getaway for my friends and I at this Gold Coast Morib Resort. It would also make a perfect weekend getaway for the whole family as well I think. Kids would still love water no matter how big or small the water park is. :)
