Ate here several times after trying other places on the beach. Large menu with good selection of local food and best seafood BBQ selection on this beach. Get in early as queues form and choices reduce quickly.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was great and huge with seaview!! The bathroom was clean and big (I suggest to put a box in the shower). Maybe the staff could have provide us more towel and paper toilet instead of making us asking them every day!! The breakfast was fine but I suggest to put also some... More

We stayed at 3 different places on Pulau Perhentian Besar, and this was the best. We had a lovely near new chalet that was very clean with a comfortable queen bed and everything worked well. Cocohut Chalet is also the only place on the island which has a deck over the water. This meant we could sit on the deck... More

It could be paradise, but there are too many flaws that take away from the experience. First, we had booked airport transfer. When we got to the airport there was nobody there. We called a few times and finally someone picked up. Their response was "please pick up a taxi, the van was full." This was already an annoyance, as... More

I describe this as one of the nicest places on earth. The island itself is not commercialsed as such and only open 6 months a year so you can relax and take in the beautiful surrounds. The Cocohut chalet is simple but effective. We had a beach front room with 2 double beds, the rooms themslves are very basis, they... More

This is an overall great place to stay at. Clean room, comfortable bed, AC, TV, hot water and good shower pressure. We had a chalet located on the hill, on the side of the cliff facing the water. Beautiful view. Great little balcony with two sliding doors. Wonderful place to seat, sip wine and watch the sunset. Lines to hang... More

I knew to expect basic accommodation (which can still be done well) but this lacked in so many ways. Our new room was already showing signs of wear and tear (shower attachment broken, tv did not have correct plug), walls so thin you hear the neighbours. Perhaps if the food had been slightly better (but then I prefer Western food)........ More

Pulau Perhentian is a great escape from busy city. No car, no motorcycle & no road! Only boats! Stay in Cocohut from 4D 3N and I would say it is nice. Don't expect 5 or 4 stars of facilities. Service is great! Friendly staff in the hotel. They are friendly and helpful. The restaurant food is awesome! Good chef behind... More
