Tuna Bay is a lovely upmarket resort on the beautiful Perhentian Islands. It is reasonably basic though does have air-con and hot water (many of the resorts on the islands do not have these). The beautiful sandy beaches and green clear water with coral outcrops right in front of your door are the reason you come here. The snorkelling is... More

Just finished my 4D3N stay at Perhentian Tuna bay Resort with my girlfriend and brother. This is very nice resort with the highest rating among the others in the island. The beach is clean with crystal clear water. The best part is there is a stretch of coral just right in front of the resort which attract many colorful fishes.... More

This is a very nice resort.  The staff is friendly,  the rooms are super clean and the beach is nice. Their is not so much to do on this island so I wouldn't stay here too many days. If you wanna relax on the beach take it easy and chill out this a good place for that.  The only negative... More

This property sits on a narrow stretch of sand facing the village scenery of the opposite small island. The best part of this resort is its restaurant as the ambience is nice so is the food. It is worth taking up a package deal as they are quite generous with the food. Breakfast is buffet, lunch is Western & dinner... More

Great stay at this resort...good location...great ambience.... good food... nice beach.... Take note.... check your itemised bills before you checkout... wrong charges put on the bill yet the staff is not sorry about it. Easy deck chairs at the beach needs cushion....very uncomfortable. The resort needs more indoor recreation, i.e. pool table, dart board, music lounge, etc. Or else nothing... More

We were picked up from Kota Bharu airport and transferred by minivan to the mainland office in Kuala Besut. The journey took approximately an hour. Our boat transfer was also arranged through the hotel and everything went without a hitch. Great service! They helped carry our baggage on to the boat. On arrival our bags were carried to reception and... More

Magnificent view of the sea and the beach if you choose a house "with a view" (we had no. 2) –I recommended definitely that kind of accommodation. Very close to the restaurant - can be an advantage or a disadvantage (in September restaurant were closed at 10 p.m.). Spacious and simply furnished room with ac. Tasty and varied breakfast.
