Personally, Team E.T.A thinks thatBayou Lagoon Park Resort is a perfect choice of accommodation for not only travelers and families but honeymooners and lovers as well. Great for companies who wants to host seminar and team building too.

Although the location of this resort is a tad out of Melaka town and would require transportation to move about to tourist attractions in Melaka, I think this place has it’s own charms. They have quite a lot to offer in terms of seclusion and entertainment. Food is readily available in their in-resort restaurant and a mini mart. But if you are lazy to get out, no worries. Room service is easily available.
