Perhentians are a great getaway for people who want to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Cocohut is one of the bigger resorts close to Tuna Bay. They have a great terrace where breakfast is served and you can enjoy a bbq at night. The foodmenu is quite extensive and very affordable. The chalets are basic and not very modern. But... More

We were a group of 4 and stayed at one of the chalets with sea view. It was a decent place, clean bathrooms, spacious balcony etc. Cocohut also has brilliant restaurant with an array of cuisines at very affordable prices. Definitely going back to this beautiful island. Only concern is the prices for the chalets. It was a little pricy.

We went as a group of 8 people just for one night. The rooms were decent and good for a few days stay. Clean and the ac worked well. Did not have any issues with the management I thought they were nice as they let us do an early check in and a late check out. The food was ok... More

We stayed in the Cocohut for 2 days including the package for lunch, dinner a snorkeling trip, as well as the boat transfer to perhantian island. In the office we agreed on a additional airport transport for 60 RM both ways. The hotel is located at a small and very nice beach and seemed to be quiet nice. It was... More

The room is ok, beds are still clean but not firm (may cause backache for some). Water pressure in shower room is average, nothing to shout about. We are quite disappointed with the food and services however. No drinking water is provided at all, and a 1.5l drinking water costs RM4. An ice cream is at least rm7, and fruit... More

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.
