It has been the second time I have spent some days to Qimi chalet, and still satisfied. As the hosts say, you are part of the family. The place is peaceful, the food very good and the family very nice and helpful. For sure I will return.

Stayed there during the Kapas Marang Swimathon 2014. Got the dorm room for RM30 - no fan, no mosquito net. Other than that no complaints! Friendly staff and owners, decent food. The place is really nice with a private bay. Ambiance really 4 star with a library and regular beach activities (snorkelling etc.)

Very shortly note: willing staff, great views, best location for this kind of resort. there's nothing like luxury here, is just a place far away from land and civilization. The kind of place that you have to see at least once in your life. And this is coming from a Platinum fqtv. p.s: been there in 2011 but forgot to... More

Owners went above and beyond to help us out. We came up short on cash at the end of our stay. We only had enough to pay for our rooms and meals but not enough for the boat ride back to the mainland (we were planning to use our credit card but it was not accepted, stupid on our part,... More

My girlfriend and I booked two nights in Qimi Chalet on July 2013 but we finally left first thing the day after our first night there (which was awful). Even if the location is good, it seems that the work in this hotel will always be in progress. Nobody takes care of the smelly rubbish dump just besides the rooms.... More

My family and I have spent 3 days in Qimi chalet in Kapas. The place is fantastic: nice beach, probably the best place to snorkel on the island is just in front of the chalets. Rose and Noli, who run the hotel are really nice guests and they try their best to make you feel at home. Rose is also... More

We stayed for 5 nights and fell in love with Kapas. Qimi has the best snorkelling on the whole of the island, the coral is perfect and lots of fish. If you go north, the beach is much sandier but the snorkelling not as good, same if you go south. Nori and Rose are perfect hosts, they picked us up... More

The bungalows are within the threes of the jungle, so you should not be afraid of little animals that can be found there. Our son walk very close to a snake just outside the bungalow... A rat came at night and eat all our cookies .... The bathroom was the black point : very little water running, cold of course.... More

We reserved a room at Qimi Chalet per telefon for six nights. We were told, that there were some new rooms right next to the beach for 200 Ringgit a night, which we then reserved. When we arrived on Kapas and one of the staff showed us the room we were just shocked: It was extremely dirty, the sheets were... More
