Location is great. Super nice water nearby. But the room is really not clean....toilet was dirty and ants were seriously everywhere....the food in the restaurant was okay but you could find more choices by walking like 10 mins

I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and took the discovery package. The land and sea transfer were well organised. Location of the resort and the beach in front of the resort was excellent. But the resort itself was bad. I booked for a double bed. But the room given had two single beds. They offered to join the... More

We booked hotel by package, together with breakfast, lunch dinner, bbq and boat transfer from mainland to island, ours are diving package, so bit expensive, but worth it. good/high/peak season start Mac until September. definitely will go here again.

After the 30 minute boat trip to the island we received a warm welcome and a refreshing cold drink. We had a beach front room with full board for our 5 day / 4 night stay and the room was perfect for our needs with good sitcom, coffee and shower, even if it was a little dates. For those that...

The location of right in front of the calmest and most beautiful beach on the perhentian Islands. Just in front of you there is the turtle point where you can watch turtles. The water is crystal clear and you can even leave your belongings at the beach while snorkerling/Swimming. The resort is rather expensive and the food is not that... More

I stayed at this resort for 2 nights last year and here are my views: My room, a superior room, was located deep inside the resort grounds and my door faced the staff quarters. The bedroom walls have no noise insulation whatsoever, I could hear everything the other guests next door said! There is no phone or television in the... More

The hotel is located at very beautiful beach with direct access to coral reef. Perfect for snorkeling and sunbathing as the beach itself is clean with very soft sand. The chalet was clean whith all needed facilites inside. Overall, very good place to stay! the only thing which could be improved is breakfast. Very limited choice for people who prefers... More

Best location in Perhentian: beautiful beach, the opportunity of swimming with a lot of fishes and turtles right in front of the resort - without being forced to participate in crowded boat excursions. For the price you pay maybe you could expect more in terms of facilities and accomodation...we stayed in beach front semisuite: it was large and clean, a... More

We found our room to be quite comfortable. Nothing fancy but decent enough. There is no wifi in the rooms but free wifi in the lobby area. The beach is really beautiful with good snorkeling right off the beach. We saw sting rays, lots of colorful reef fish and a turtle. There are boats all day coming to see the... More
