Gorgeous place, tucked into the trees, right on the beach - a very good option for sun worshippers and those who'd rather be shaded whilst hanging out on the sun loungers on that silky soft sand, just a few feet from the sea. The bungalows are beautiful (ours had a fan, not aircon), with nice bathroom. We (me, and my... More

We had a lovely time at Turtle Valley - definitely the best place to stay on Palau Kapas. Clean, private and comfortable chalets where you can hear the water when you wake up and you can walk on to the secluded beach. The water is beautiful and there's plenty to do. The highlight has to be Sylvia's food - perfect... More

What a beautifull place, a real getaway from the hectic mainland. Friendly welcome by owners Sylvia & Peter. You feel at home rightaway and are free to ask anything. Rooms are basic and clean, and the luxury is right outside your door: white sandy private beach, bleu sea, coral reef, colorfull fish and turtles and the sun shining. Relax, what... More

Once you go once, you keep going back. The privacy of the beach allows you to relax, the bungalows have beautiful views, are spot clean and spacious (for an island). But then there is the restaurant....and the host does magic in her kitchen always surprising you with new flavors and great variety. The owners make you feel like home...just very... More

A wonderful place on a very secluded part of a very small island with a good breeze necessary for the hot climate!! The food is excellent. A great island to stay and relax, only five minutes to the next beach where you can walk on and on across white sandy beaches and swim in clear turquoise water. Great for snorkelling... More

Stayed one week at the Kapas Turtle Valley with my family and we loved it!!!!! Sylvia and Peter are amazing guests who make you feel at home. In addition, the food is absolutely yummy as Sylvia is a great chef cooking with tons of love. The beach has a private intimate feel with tons of coral reef around if you... More

We stayed at Kapas Turtle Valley 3 years ago. Normale we don't return to a location we already visited, but we made an exception because we enjoyed it so much at that time. Expectations were high and Sylvia and Peter ( and of course their excellent staff) immediately made us feel welcome again from the moment we got off the... More

We stayed with our 3 kids in 2 connected rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious with a lovely view over the beach and sea. You can snorkel just in front of the resort and see a lot of coral fish, especially if you go a bit further out. Else you could walk to the beach close to Gem island... More

We visited several islands along the east coast of Malaysia and Kapas was BY FAR the worst. The coral is mostly dead and bleached and therefore the aquatic wildlife is minimal relative to the other islands. Also the island itself has nothing to look at and no where to eat. I would therefore urge anyone thinking of snorkeling and/or eating... More
