We visited Perhentians in April and May. Both stays we ate at their restaurant most nights. Great food, and our favorite waiter, Tony, looked after us and made sure we had a great time. We'll go back for sure. The Canadians, C&H

The resort is directly located at the beach with a beautiful reef just 2 meters from the beach. In our stay was the breakfast included which... More

So the package we bought is including food and some of the dish they changed to something which is lighter and not spicy instead. We skip both snorkeling activity and there is an attendant... More

Water was super clear.island is very much accessible by both normal and speed boats(30 min).stay was comfortable .
