We couldn't have imagined a better place to spend the last leg of our honeymoon. The island is stunning and mystically beautiful, especially seen from the Bagus Place location. We stayed at the Rumah Laut chalet: secluded and perfect, with amazing views of the sea. A paradise spot for snorkeling, exploring the island or just relaxing. Especially for couples! The... More

We had an amazing week at Bagus place with our children and another family. After the busy, noisy ferry journey from Genting in Malaysia, we arrived in what looked like paradise. We were much earlier than planned, so had 15 mins to wait at the end of the jetty for the speedboat from Bagus (we called to let them know... More

Go there!!!! Whether you're looking for a romantic vacation or a place to have fun and unwind, Bagus is the perfect choice. The location is gorgeous: a small beach with soft white sand and crystal clear waters set against the background of lush jungle and rising mountain peaks. The accommodations are wonderful, extremely comfortable and uniquely designed. We stayed at... More

If I was more selfish, I would not write a review, purely to keep Bagus to myself... However, I feel I must be fair and so, having only just joined Tripadvisor and staying at Bagus this time last year, it is time to extol its qualities and compliment Rosie and Vivian on giving my girlfriend and I a brilliant two...

This place offers a perfect getaway from our busy lifestyle. One can choose to snorkel, hike, go fishing or just do nothing. The staff are friendly and ever willing to help. It is self contained and they will provide the meals. The package will include boat transfers. They have 3 boats at your service and have the experience to cater... More

A great little place with really personal service in a laid back environment. From the moment we arrived to see the stunning location (and cocktail on arrival) we loved Bagus. Each chalet is unique and with lots of little areas to relax and enjoy the surroundings instead of cramming in lots more people. The food was great as well with... More

We spent a glorious 5 nights at Bagus and really did not want to leave. We arrived at Genting on the ferry from Mersing and were picked up by Rosie in the Bagus speedboat. The speedboat trip was fun and lasted approximately 8 minutes and then we arrived at our final destination….Bagus Place. First impressions? Jaw dropping. The view from... More

We spent 3 days in Bagus, but we would have spent at least seven!!!! Everything was perfect. Chalet respect nature and environment, they are nice and comfortable. So the place where we had meals, the library, and the bar!!! We stayed at the Rock House and it was terrific to hear the sea below us in the morning. Meals were... More

Being a travel agent, I visited many countries and stayed in many luxury hotels- but Bagus is the best ever. As my daughter described it- not home but paradise. It felt as comfy as home with friends, even other guests, but it is paradise. We stayed 3 nts in Apr 14 and I already booked for next year for at... More
