According to a latest news on the Star Online, Redang Island aims to lure the rich with room rates no less than RM1,600.
My first reaction was like “WHAT THE (insert favourite curse word)?!”.
How can, right? How can such a beautiful place be kept for people with money only? Mana boleh?!
I visited Redang for the first time back in 2009 and it’s really a beautiful place for a holiday. Back then, my 3 days 2 nights stay at Laguna Redang Island Resort was just about RM600.
But now… RM1,600 a night? The state government must be pretty crazy right?
Also according to the article, Pulang Redang is rated as one of the world’s most beautiful is set to be a getaway exclusive for the rich and famous!
I repeat: For the RICH and FAMOUS!
Therefore, I foresee great transformation of Redang Island and its vicinity. Perhaps something like this.
Welcoming reminders that Redang Island is for the rich and famous only! Poor bastards please jump into the sea and swim back to the mainland!
And by the way, before you board a boat service to Redang, you’ll be given a boarding ticket.
Here’s how it looks in front. May look normal.
But at the back of it.
Again, only rich and famous guests are welcomed! If you’re not, tear the ticket and run back home!
And while you’re on the way to Redang, you’ll see some signboards floating on the sea as well.
If you’re not, better jump sea.
Anyway, once you’ve reach the island, more Rich & Famous signboards will be visible.
The rocks are for the rich and famous only.
The beach is for the rich and famous only.
Even the whole resort will be made sure that only the rich and famous people are there.
And when you wanna have your meal, you’ll see another signboard.
For the rich and famous only, but I bet the standard of the food will not be upgraded anyhow. Typical Malaysians, eat money only!
Then when you go back to your room, another same old signboard appears.
The current accommodations are required to upgrade and raise their room rates. Poor people surely cannot afford to stay in Redang. Sleep at the beach lah.
Besides that, if you’re staying in Laguna Redang Island Resort, you might see a modified signboard something like this.
Strictly for rich Laguna guest, you know. Don’t play play.
And then when you go snorkeling and dive into the deep blue sea…
Another signboard is buried under the sea with the corals. If you not rich and famous, you better drown straight away. Redang Island doesn’t want you.
Meanwhile, at the swimming pool in Laguna Redang Island Resort, more signboards were erected.
Don’t swim in the swimming pool if you’re not rich and famous okay?
Anyway, it is said that only hotels rated five-star and above will be allowed to be built. So maybe a hotel better than other five-star hotels will be built in the future.
For example, this!
Brand new bloody expensive hotel and call it Burj Al Redang! Seven-star rating, best stay in Redang and as usual, only for the rich and famous only!
So, what’s next on the plan to promote Redang Island as Malaysia’s niche market.
Burj Malaysia? It MIGHT happen you know!
Malaysia Boleh mahhhh! Woohoo! =D
