My bf and I spent 6 nights here and we absolutely loved it. The booking process went smoothly and Irma was extremely helpful, attentive and professional through it all from booking all the way to airport drop off on our last day. The boat that was supposed to pick us up, broke down and a 3rd party boat came to... More

Staff are very helpful and do try to meet every request. Food is good and v reasonable in price. Restaurant can get busy in the evenings but staff do try to manage as best... More

I don't know where to begin when explaining my stay at Tuna Bay. This was my girlfriend and mine's second time at the resort and I will absolutely make a third time. We stayed in a hill side chalet (see view fully booked). The room is very large with one queen size bed and a single bed. The room gets... More

We didn't stay there but ate at the restaurant. We were very disappointed after reading great reviews. The place is jam packed, loud, overpriced and the food mediocre. We tried it once and ended up going back to Abdul's chalet for our other meals

My family and I spent 1 week in Tuna Bay Resort. It's not la uxurious hotel but comfortable, clean (our room was smelling very good everyday) & safe. Restaurant menu is not big but food is good. Hotel is providing Nice excursions to discover Perhentian Islands. Let's try Rawa... Amazing! Good value for money

Whilst the rooms at Tuna Bay are basic, it is a great base to explore the Perhentian Islands, and the restaurant is fantastic. They have a huge menu and execute everything superbly, from Asian style sea food and barbecue to Western sandwiches. The food is pretty reasonably priced too. The snorkelling at the house reef is also excellent, and it... More

a great choice for the price. Couldn't ask for a better location, and all the rooms are accessible without long walks into the jungle, which was ideal for us. Just one thing which I wasn't clear about in advance, the beach in this bay faces across to the town/village on the small island opposite. Not a problem, but it does... More

We stayed at Tuna Bay for 6 nights last week. Overall it was a pleasant stay, and considering that resorts on the islands operate fully for just 6 months in a year, all the supplies are brought in from the mainland and they have to run their own generators, I think it is decent value for money. We did not... More

Tuna Bay resort will arrange to pick you up at Khota Baru and transport you to the jetty at Kuala Besut. The girls in the office are helpful and friendly. Tuna Bay express boat takes you directly to the island resort. The chalet is adequate with hot water, basic but has everything you need. WIFI is only available in the... More
