We were very satisfied with our 3 nights stay at sea view family suite in Coral View Island Resort. Reasonable room rate, quiet and relaxing surrounding, good quality food serving, friendly and helpful staffs. The Perhentian Island itself is so beautiful with amazing marine life, flora and fauna. We will definitely stay here again in future.

Before making reservation on this resort, as usual, I searched Tripadvisor for more information on the resorts in Perhentian Island. As usual, there are always brickbats and bouquets on the resorts I searched. Finally I decided to book this Coral View Island Resort. We opted for the Executive Suite as the sea facing deluxe room was not available. Anyway, we... More

The room was clean, the location was fantastic and the food was alright. The chalet is right by the harbour and the beach and a padi diving site. It's also within walking distance to a very happening beach behind the island. It is also romantic enough for a proposal (one of my brother's friends did exactly that).

We stayed 8 nights and were fortunate enough to have a chalet right on the beach: def the best option. Great location, v helpful staff, nice little chalet ideal for a small family (they have larger units too) and amazing to open the door and the sea is right in front of you. Restaurant is ok but a bit overpriced,... More

The accommodation and location of this resort is good, but I think overpriced. We stayed for a week after spending a week at Reef Chalet. The accommodation at Coral View is larger and more opulent, but it is also a bit tired. We stayed in an ocean view room which had a beautiful view.

Lovely resort. We stayed in the Deluxe Hill View rooms, so we had to climb a bit to get there, but the trek was paid off by monkeys running on the roof and socialising in the trees next to the rooms. We also had an excellent view of the fruit bats that seem to favour this side of the island... More

I took package for snorkeling and stay from Coral View Island Resort. It cost me for RM445 per person(3D2N) with Deluxe Sea View Room. I bought the package during MATTA Fair 2015 at PWTC last March. I'm very satisfy with the service, food and room. The package include 2-3 hours snorkeling on the 2nd day. When we arrived, they provide... More

A great resort overall, we had one of the hillside rooms with air con and without a hot shower (definitely dont need it anyway). The room was good, the only downside was that the door would only stay shut when locked and since the key was needed for the lights and air con to work it meant locking the door... More

My partner and I stayed 4 days at Coral View and had a fabulous time. The rooms are slightly old school in style but sufficient for island needs. We stayed in a hillside chalet and was fine for it purposes. Nice large bed, and great watching the squirrels play on the balcony area. Love how the trees have been incorporated... More

Beautiful neat and tidy. Small and yet cozy. The extra friendly manager who helped us all in a trip of 50 is unforgettable. She is all smiling and ever helpful. The room is cozy. Small yet enough for you to spend good time inside. Minus: no TV so spend all your time on your companion. The fly bat was flying... More
