The location of the lodge is just half a minute walk from the jetty in front of Arwana resort, quite convenient. The room is clean and most importantly the toilet is clean and large too. However the food in the cafe is a little pricey and they took so long to serve our breakfast. Also the beach right in front... More

Rooms are basically wooden sheds. The service at the restaurant is terribly slow - we waited almost an hour for breakfast. There isn't really a place to stay on the beach so we ended up trekking through the jungle to the other side of the island every day. WiFi is super slow.

For 80 RM you cannot find a better fan room on Perethen. Only Matahari on long beach is an alternative if you're ok with party music until 2am. Room: In 12 nights we had 4 nights with a cockcroach, always when rain was coming up. Then you need to close the windows which we had open pretty much all the... More

Whilst basic and small, our room was clean and comfortable and provided all we needed after days on the beach. The bathroom was far larger than others we have had in Malaysia and this was definitely a bonus. Whilst the shower was cold this wasn't a problem given the heat. The staff are very friendly. As noted in their reviews... More

I was staying in one of the cheap fan rooms in the garden area. Although this place did have some shortcomings, considering the price charged, I think it is excellent value for money. The location is pretty good, Flora bay is a pretty beach, quiet and relaxing. But the water is quite shallow, even at high tide and you have... More

Found this place almost by accident as most places were heavily booked at peak holiday time, but Bayu dive lodge had one basic room left. Cold shower and only fan cooled, but good value for 80 MYR a night. Cold showers were all that was needed in the heat, and 2 circulating fans were adequate to sleep at night. Warm... More

We returned after 3 years (it was almost dire then). Again, booked online, again took garden chalet, meal & dive package. Observations based on 3 year gap (& bear in mind there was a change of ownership early in 2015): We were very pleased with Seven Seas (land agents) & the way they assisted us on arrival (car park, boat,...

I stayed for 1 night and booked through agoda. Upon arrival staff are friendly. However, we are unable to get our room due to guest who stayed in the room wish to extend their stay. Fortunately we were upgraded and that was a good service recovery. We had late lunch, dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Honestly i feel that... More

Everything is good. But they probably have a small kitchen staff. On super peak periods, please avoid taking the full board package. One time, we have to wait nearly 2 hours before our dinner arrive because of the large number of people dining at the same time. other time, we only have to wait for 15-45 minutes before our food...
