It's all about location of your room. beach side is always the best you can get. The chalets are ok, with hot water facilities but all is limited. Please ensure that your food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is included in the package or not. If it is included, ensure that it is buffet or not. We thought it was buffet, but... More

We stayed here after a previous trip staying at the New Cocohut chalets. The location is great with a variety of snorkeling within minutes walk of the resort. The sea view rooms have a nice outlook and are only footsteps from the beach and water. The rooms are basic, but if you are staying here it is for the location... More

This is definitely one of the better chalets to stay in in Perhentian Island. The rooms are bigger than expected, with a little lounge area, a balcony, ensuite. The hotel also provided tea/coffee making facilities in the room. There is however no tv or phone, but you don't need that in the island! Restaurant food is nice compared to other... More

I stayed here in August 2014 to get my Scuba Diving license. I stayed in a fan chalet and it was very basic but clean. It got cleaned everyday and the staff was very friendly. In my opinion the price was a little bit too high for what you get. But the location is definitely worth it! I stayed here... More

Fabulous snorkeling off the resort beach and also easy access to the beautiful beach next door. Can just swim off the beach with turtles which was amazing to be so close to them. Rooms on the beach are the best. Clean rooms, staff really friendly, restaurant ok and quite cheap for a resort. Would highly recommend.

Superb position, with great snorkelling off the beach. Lots of variety Giant Turtles, Reef Sharks and Barracuda. Food basic but good. If you want a relaxing no frills break in a dream tropical island with great beaches and crystal blue sea it doesn't get much better.This is good value for money but do not expect 4 star (think Greece 20...

This hotel could not have a better location as it is right on a beach where there is both abundant coral and a huge range of fish to be seen close to the shore. We booked early and had 2 family 'deluxe' rooms which had a fantastic view of the bay. Location wise, this could not be better. The rooms... More

The resort is located well on the big Island. Anyone thinking about going there, book the deluxe seaview villa 713. The view is amazing. All the villa's are outdated and really needed some maintenance. Parts from the seeling are hanging loose, the front door was not closing well anymore and the floor was just loose. Food is just average (lunch,... More

We stayed there four nights and it was great. You have a choice of two beaches that are five minutes away. Snorkeling site just in front of the beach. Food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. But for the fish barbecue we usually went to Waterfront.

This was my third trip to the islands and a return trip to the resort. Resort is on the big (Besar) island and better suited to those seeking peace and quiet. Resort has a variety of rooms ranging from a fan in the room to those with sea views and televisions. Staff at front desk and on-site restaurant are friendly... More
