Some of the most recent positive reviews seem very comprehensive and realistic. The constructive criticism seems well thought out and could be a great help with the ongoing challenge of hosting guests from all walks of life in such natural surroundings. Here's my take on the pluses and minuses at Qimi: Pros -a resort uniquely blending into the natural surroundings... More

Oh my gosh.. Not sure where to start. Firstly by saying by far the nicest place on kapas. We never really thought about coming here, the lonely planet book didn't say much about it apart from it being very basic so it was only because KBC was full and captains longhouse was too far away that we went to qimis....

The place has different designs of chalet to suite your style and budget. we chose rose 1, suitable for couple who likes an adventure feeling showering with a view of the jungle and frogs. It has a private bay which gives you a good privacy and not too far to walk or kayak to the coral beach area. if you... More

I think the review by Kim E. below is an excellent description of the place and will give you a good idea of what you will encounter. My additional comments would be the following: -This is the best location in the island. There is only one resort, it is next to a beautiful deserted beach that is probably one of... More

Leasy workers, not friendly at all. Expencive and dirty rooms. We arrived without reservation. We could see the rooms but they were not cleaned. Not one of the kitchen staff can speak english. When you go when Rose is not there, or her daughter, it's terrible. Bad experience.

It was really nice meeting you and spending time at Qimi Chalet place. Don't forget that you are going on an Island so the expectations should be coherent. We went there for the wedding of friends and we've appreciated the whole stay with Rose and her team. The food was excellent and the staff helpful and discret at the same... More

My friends and I stayed in the air-conditioned room for a night. We slept soundly on the comfy king-sized bed and didn't have to deal with mosquitoes that plagued the non-aircon rooms. The bathroom is large with a bath tub and a shower and extends to a semi-outdoor shower area. It was a nice experience to have a view of... More

We have just returned from our wonderful 3 week Malaysian holiday and we spent 4 nights of it at Qimi Chalets on Kapas. Let me start off by saying that Kapas just blew us away. Having spent 5 nights in the busy Perhentians, we just fell in love with quiet Kapas and the wonderful feel of the place. I had... More

Chalets are built into cliff and afford beautiful views of the water. Quiet and unassuming. Family run operation who are attentive and friendly. Food was great! While the beach is nice it is a bit nicer at the adjoining resort.
