your stay

the kasturi resort is the finest small luxury resort along the east coast, a five-star beach property located at chendor beach, pahang, which commands perfect view towards the sunrise, over the forested point of tanjong geliga and off to the south china sea. with rainforest behind and beach in front, the villas and suites at the kasturi resort offer a superb retreat, encapsulating the reality of being embraced by land and sea. this resort of just 23 keys is designed to escape city stress, without sacrificing the comforts and luxury you crave.

the resort’s 15 acres have 800 meters of beach backed by forested dunes. the site has virtually exclusive access to another kilometer of beach towards the north, right up to the estuary of sungai pak siak, wonderful for dawn walks or evening runs. the estuary is a magical place where we occasionally see a family of otters basking on the banks. sea eagles regularly swoop over the villas, and fireflies twinkle beside the walkways. the beach is famous for fishing stingray and of course for the endangered green turtles, whose eggs are safely buried in the resorts' hatchery.

2-bedroom beach front villa (fully booked)

on entering from the forest path into the enveloping timber structure, you are transported to a private and luxurious enclave. a deck with a lotus pond and tinkling water leads to the private swimming pool, the recreation area, outdoor shower and your own gate to the beach. inside, a superbly finished sitting room, opens from the deck and leads up to the elevated sleeping area and luxury bathroom, that in turn leads to an open outdoor shower garden enhanced by herbal plantings and discretely enclosed by beautiful stone walls.

your teachers

PX_R3_Instructor_Suhana Ishak.jpg

suhana ishak


yoga has been a part of suhana's life for two decades now. having completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training, she is also the co-founder of nafas yoga, based in taman tun dr ismail.

as a teenager, she grew up with body image issues and lack of self-confidence. through yoga, she found a way to express herself and learned to appreciate her body. yoga has taught her to be mindful of her thoughts and words, especially when directed to herself.

her yoga practice is a combination of structure and creative sequencing with an element of awareness of the body and mind though breath and fundamental alignment in asanas. through positive and encouraging vibes, she offers a safe space for students to explore their limits in asanas and movement with breath. her hope is for people to find ease in their minds and bodies instead of perfection.



zafie azizan

ryt-200, rpyt-60

zafie began her yoga journey back in 2010, having practiced it to correct her posture and as a relief for the chronic back pains she experienced as a student. over the years, her practice made her stronger, more flexible, courageous and mindful both on and off the mat. she is a certified yoga and prenatal yoga instructor and is also the co-founder of nafas yoga, based in taman tun dr ismail.

she has nurtured her own style of modern flow - combining creative sequencing, posture alignment and breath in movement. these days, yoga offers her a respite from the busy-ness of life and she is humbled to be able to share her knowledge and love of yoga with others.

“find your breath” is what one will usually hear zafie repeat in her classes, where she also encourages everyone to live more mindfully, by integrating body, breath, mind and soul.


nafas yoga

nafas yoga was founded in 2019 by two yogis who came together with a shared dream to create a space where everyone is accepted and welcomed. being yoga teachers with a mutual love and passion for health and wellness, they saw how yoga can create a positive impact not only in one's lives but also in a community.

located in the heart of taman tun dr. ismail, this cozy and convenient space has become a home away from home for many yogis. with a variety of classes led by a team of dedicated and fun-loving teachers, nafas yoga is a safe and non-competitive space for you to grow in your yoga practice.

the core of nafas yoga's ethos is finding that mind-body connection through breath and movement. It is not just about having a good and fulfilling practice, but also to learn something about ourselves on and off the mat.
