D’Lagoon – Perhentian Islands, Malaysia
This experience was memorable for its location. In fact, I can barely even remember what our room’s interior looked like. The guesthouse was in the most idyllic location – on its own turquoise cove housing a coral reef in a quiet part of the beautiful Perhentians. This was a total back-to-nature experience, with nothing around us but lush jungle and rainforest, wildlife (including some scary monitor lizards) and warm, inviting water. Here, we did nothing but snorkel, snorkel, snorkel, and one night watched baby turtles hatch on the beach.
