Sitting tantalisingly close to the north-west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the Perhentians are one of the most beautiful islands this fine nation has to offer. Nestling close together, and just a 40-minute boat ride from Kuala Besut, Besar (large) and Kecil (small) sit proudly, jutting out of the near-intoxicating blue of the South China Sea, and surrounded by coral worthy...

I didn't get to stay here. I stayed next door at tuna bay. I am vegan and am always struggling to find good food I can eat when I am traveling in remote places. After a poor meal at tuna bay I found coral view and again was disappointed. Then I found Cocohut and met lovely Midah. Wow. She knew... More

Cocohut is continually offering a promotional deal here on Trip Advisor RM180 valid 9th June to 31st October. Yet when you try to make a booking they refuse point blank to honour the promotion and want to charge RM280. It seems to me it's just a nasty way of getting attention with the aim of selling rooms at standard prices.... More

Coconut restaurant is right on the beach, food is good, reasonably priced for the island and portions are good. Food is tasty and the milkshakes are some of the best I've had anywhere in the world, they are massive and really good price. Service can be a bit flaky but for me it was the best restaurant on that part... More

A good value, right on the beach location with very friendly, helpful staff. The restaurant has a really good fresh fish BarBQ each night, reasonable prices and cooked to order perfectly. We had ray wings, tiger prawns and red snapper whilst there. All served with a choice of sauces, rice, veggies etc. Rooms clean but not large once you have... More

We got the corner room with both sides seaview and the room on the first floor was amazing. I think it has the best view on the whole island. The staff were very nice and the food is the best on the island with a deck and best bbq

There are a bunch of restaurants along this stretch starting with Tuna bay to the south and working past mama's to coral view. We found coconut to be amongst the best. Good value, great view. Bbq prawns and the curried fish were good. Fresh coconut excellent too. Open all day as well and apparently has music later but we never... More
