Came to the Perhentians for 3 days without a hotel booking (very unwise, even more so at the start of a national school holiday week!), and were glad to find a reasonably priced room at the Bayu Dive lodge. Stayed at a garden chalet with A/C and hot shower. Rooms were very basic, but clean. The little gardens between the... More

Our experience here was excellent. The staff was great. We came to Perhentian Besar to relax but we ended up signing up for the open water diving course. We were surprised to hear that the owner of the dive shop holds one of the diving records here in Malaysia. It was an honor to having him as our instructor. He... More

Nice small hotel it the quiet bay. VERY clean and green territory, perfect comfortable bungalows. VERY friendly staff! Restaurant is a bit expansive, breakfast could be better, but it's not important because everything else is just perfect! We wish to come back again! Thanks a lot!

We arrived early and our rooms weren't ready when we arrived. After waiting over an hour for our rooms, check in was slow, just like their email replies and the staff just couldn't help making you feel welcome. You feel like you're imposing on them. The room was clean and well maintained. But i found the way they placed their... More

Just back from Pulau Perhentian and I’ve been staying at Bayu Dive Lodge from 16th Sept – 18th Sept 2013. Some experiences to share here. I should start with the room reservation process. It’s kinda convenience to make a room reservation and pay the deposit by credit card via their website. After paying the deposit, I sent an email to... More

It's okay to sleep, that's all. We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of September. We're currently travelling Asia so booked it near enough last minute. We were told its a busy time of year, so struggled to find accommodation suiting our budget. After many hours of searching we finally came back to Bayu Dive Lodge, and booked through... More
