Father’s Day 2022 is just round the corner on June 19 — hot on the heels of Mother’s Day.

It’s probably easier for most of us to shop for mum, but the one thing we know that dear ol’ dad will appreciate is a vacation where he can put his feet up and relax for once. Whether it’s playing golf, enjoying a relaxing massage, or dining at some of the best restaurants in Malaysia, there’s something here that every dad will love.

Fathers often sacrifice much of their own time and happiness to make sure their children have everything they need. If you want to thank your dad and show him appreciation for everything he’s done, give him a fabulous holiday where he’ll be treated like the king he is. For loving dads who prefer to spend their holidays with their families, most of these resorts are also suitable for a family vacation as well.

For the busy dad who can’t tear himself away from work, treat him to a break from the grind this year with a relaxing staycation on the weekend this Father’s Day 2022.
