We was there for 3 nights in the low season. The Hotel was not working at all, no luck buffet and the Breakfast buffet was very poor. The rooms were perfect, all very clean and high standard. They was preparing all the hotel for the high season this means that it was very noisy.

We stayed at the resort in the month of October 2014. Overall services were up to satisfactory level with the price paid. Few of the staff were great and gave an extra mile of services. People like Ann, Teguh , Risky and Lily and also not forgetting Mr Zuresh the man in charge who made our stay memorable. Overall paya... More

We got a standard chalet, family of 4. The room was clean, bathroom nice, and it was very comfortable. The location is amazing- our chalet was literally right in front of the beach, less than a minute walk. Even walking a little into the water, not even waist deep, (with snorkeling gear) you can see beautiful parrot fish, in schools,... More

I can't imagine a better place to go if you want to unstress, watch beautiful sunsets and enjoy a clean, unexpoited tropical beach. The place is rustic, clean, food is good, fresh fish from the grill is delicious. If you can live with floors that might be slightly tilted, the occasional monitor lizard and staff that not always speak perfect... More

Stayed there for 3nights, with the only intention to relax and enjoy the nature. Though the rooms was a bit rundown, for the money that we spent, we couldn't expect much. Just be prepared with lots of insect repellent. Food was quite hard to get too coz some stalls may not open throughout. Best to bring along some foods or... More

I stayed for two nights. It is perfect for a family with kids as there are only couple of resorts on this beach and you can have the whole beach to yourself during off-peak time as there are no crowds. Certainly the hotel would have been WOW when it opened. Now, it is just nice after many years. The breakfast... More

We stayed 4 days at Paya Beach Resort in November 2014. We had booked a Deluxe suite with two rooms and a balcony with outdoor jacuzzi and shower. The room was very nice, but the level of cleanliness made us to complain and then finally change rooms. In my opinion the cleaners don't do their job. There was spots on... More

I just returned to Paya Beach resort in October and had the pleasure to discover a new area in the hotel : new rooms with 2 king size beds perfect for a family (ask the 800's and 900's room numbers), and a new swimming pool quite big. So now for the price it's ok. Before it was too expensive for... More

Holidayed during the Malaysia national day celebrations. THE BAD: 1. Was told 2 days before that the ferry to the resort was changed to Tanjung Gemuk, Pahang and not at Mersing, Johor. 😕 2. Room was infested with bedbugs and I got the numerous bites to prove it. 😠 3. Flies, flies everywhere on the food at buffet and no... More
