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

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
