It looks like a lot of people had issues here.. we had a great time! No bugs (thank goodness). It wasn't cheap, but wasn't too much considering how close it was to the beach. Staff was friendly. All in all, for the area it wasn't bad. I'd go back.

I was on my honeymoon and this was the only place available on the island. I had read the previous review (in bed with cockroaches) and was a bit nervous about this. When we got there, we had to climb up a bunch of stairs to get to our room. The chalets are on stilts, and underneath the chalets is... More

We took a room dubious about the reviews but the other 4 star TA resorts were all booked out. Don’t believe the reviews or blogs that tell you there is plenty of accommodation available in September, all 4 star plus TA resorts are fully booked. There are 2 records for this resort make sure you read both sets of reviews.... More

Cozy Chalet has become 'New Cocohut Resort', but seems to be still advertised under both names, and was the only resort available to us in late August this year - end of Ramadan we discovered. The Perhentian Islands are beautiful, the marine reserve surrounding the islands ensure a wonderful snorkelling/ diving experience with plentiful fish life and sea turtles, a... More

We had booked our accomodation at Suhaila, but when we got there we didnt like it so went next door to Cozy Chalet and got a room there. We were a little worried because they stress how everything is booked out at this time of year, but they had spare rooms. It was a lot more expensive but you get... More

Cozy was our only choice as we had to change our dates at the last minute and perhenthian was completely booked out aside from one room at cozy. The resort is located on the big island side of the straight and looks over to the fishing village on the small island. The beach is quite small however there are a... More

I had a Seaview Chalet - big room, good bed, nice balcony and great view. It had everything you needed and some you don't (TV). All was typically Malaysian (exposed wires, dodgy plugs) but OK. Bathroom was adequate although the shower only managed warm water rather than hot. Cozy Chalet is part of Cocohut and the beach area is quite... More

Most of the cheaper chalets which were getting decent reviews were already fully booked. So I ended booking a full board (6 meals + 2 snorkeling trips) 3day2night package at this hotel through Anjung Holidays. Very pleasant experience with Anjung Holidays. Friendly staff and they were very quick to revert to me on my inquiries. Package cost RM575/pax for hillside... More

We spent 4 nights at cozy chalet. After reading some bad last reviews in tripadvisor we were a bit scared, particularly about the insects. But the chalet was ok. You just need to close doors and windows and keep the air conditionning. So when you get back after un long day under the sun, it feels fresh and nice. They... More

We stayed in a seaview chalet (S10 I think) booked 4 months in advance - the chalet was very clean on arrival but after that it's up to you to clean it up. Bathroom was basic was functioning and hot water was not an issue at any time fo the day. The view was good, the only downside was the... More
