Although the huts can be cleaner, the place cannot be more relaxing. It's in the same Kapas beach. You open the door of your bungalow and you see the garden and the beach. They usually have long term guests who live in the KBC. There's a lounge room in the top floor of the reception with hammocks where you can... More

Been there recently and have to agree to some reviews. See reviews titled: “Chalet - basic but charming, Restaurant - get better staff” “KBC/Kapas Beach Chalet - Not the restaurant........” The restaurant food is ok but slow. No comment about local staff working in the kitchen. But the European lady wearing spectacles who interfaces with customer (serves and collects payment),... More

The next door resort is called mak cik gemok beach resort....filthy living quarters...Business seem to survive on spillovers from KBC (the front), will take in your bookings but when kbc got a full house, they will conveniently dump u next door and let you deal with it, take it or leave it. the KBC staff would urge you to look...

We were just making a daytrip to Kapas and asked our boatman to take us into the main island after a couple of hours snorkeling in the Marine Park. KBC is located right next to where we alighted and looks very inviting. It has a great vibe - 'Middle Class Packpackers' would best describe it. The food was only average... More

If you are thinking of going to Pualu Kapas, do it. It is our favorite island destination in SEA, and trust me we have seen a lot. We stopped here as a stop over from Perhentians on our way to Tioman thinking we we going to stay olny a few days and ended up staying 8. It only takes about... More

Unfortunately we were not able to sleep here, but food was brilliant! It had by far the best atmosphere on the island! Service was good and overall very welcoming! Great family orientated place with a great view!

I came to KBC by accident, and what a brilliant accident! It's the vibe, hammocks in the trees, powder soft sand, such friendly staff and gorgeous sea only metres away that makes this place! and the reason i give it 5 stars. It was the start of the season, so some rooms/chalets still being made ready after the end of... More

Lets start with the positive side of KBC - the Chalet itself. The owner as well as the staff running the place are all very friendly, chilled, laid-back. As soon as you arrive you will already know that this is a place to hang out for a longer period of time. The rooms are basic, maybe they need some renovation,... More

KBC restaurant Is great. Good food and great atmosphere. The Dutch Owner Hans, was like classic host from movies. He took his guests to his friends. Very warm experience In many ways. Chalets were very basic. Room and a shower. What more you need, ´cos outside Is always so much better. Makes me want to go again!

A bunch of parasites who think of themselves that they are sooo cool! But in fact, the staff doesn't know how to run a homestay and make people feel comfortable. The worse memory of all Malaysia, although the island in itself is very beautiful.
