The location is stunning and the snorkelling package is excellent value. The rooms are very basic so bear that in mind when you book and you wont be dissapointed. A couple of meals a day are included be warned the choice is limited and if the resort is busy they quickly run out and don't rush to top up what... More

If you are on a budget holiday, Fauna Chalet might suit you. However, please take note of the conditions:- The rooms are pretty old with minimal maintenance. Expect ants and cockroaches in the room and/or bathroom. The bathroom had no ventilation and smells like sewage. The shower doesn’t work because the water pressure is too low, plus, saw mosquito larvae... More

The chalet is facing northeast. Hence, can't view sunset here. Sunrise is blocked by a small island where Lata Air Berani located. The beach is nice and kayaking is strongly recommended. Rm15 per hour. The food is excellent and the service rendered by Fauna restaurant owner was good. All food are prepared on the spot instead of pre cook or... More

RM60 for detached chalet on beach ocean view with double or two single beds which is a great alternative to dorms for 2 people  This is as cheap as you are going to get on Besar the big island. I discovered this after doing the 45 min trek for the Coral View / Mammas beach area and moved here next... More
