I recently stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. We very much enjoyed our trip. We had organised transfers with Tuna Bay from the airport and unfortunately our flight was 1.5 hours late, meaning we would miss the boat transfer however the Tuna Bay Office staff were excellent and had someone waiting and were able to get us on...

Perhentian is one of the highlight of Malaysia and we have decided to explore this beautiful island from Tuna Bay Resort. The transfer from Kota Bharu was well organized, the resort is located on the best beach of the main island, with very nice corals and fishes nearby, which can be easily accessed. We were disappointed by the accommodation itself:... More

My family & I went here in October 2014 and I must say that we had a blast! The place was clean, beach was great, the various island hopping & snorkelling tours were fantastic, the staff were friendly & honest (in fact, i lost my iPhone.. dropped it on the way out for dinner during the rain - and thought...

We have spent 4 days and 4 nights in a bungalow on the beach side, nothing luxurious but well equiped, clean and comfortable. The staff is very kind and helpful. Their restaurant got a wide range of quality food, and the barbecue dinner is extremeley delicious. As for the snorkelling this is the best place on the island, where the... More

This would have been a spectacular resort if they just paid more attention to details such as service in the restaurant and maybe hiring a better chef. The prices for food was slightly expensive for what it was and unfortunately they were all poorly cooked. Our farmed bbq seafood, meat and chicken skewers were over cooked to charred, dried and...

Context- This review is written from the perspective of a European couple who have lived and worked in Asia for over two years. We tend to travel budget (and will not post a negative review if a place does not come with free soap, for example), but are a small level above ‘backpacker’. Area- The Perhentian islands provide a nice... More

The resort is well managed. The check-in on the mainland and subsequent boat trip to the resort was well managed and comfortable. The room was comfortable and clean, though a bit small. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. They have a pleasant bar overlooking the beach. The Perhentian Islands are a marine reserve, so snorkeling was superb.

We went for five days and had a really relaxing time. The food is good, but make sure to try the other restaurant on the beach. The food is just as good and cheaper. We stayed in a deluxe beach front suite far away from the restaurant, and with all business of the other guest, we were happy about that.... More

We stayed in a deluxe beach front family pair of rooms. Good points: Easy booking process Efficient if rather impersonal transfer from Khota Baru airport (driver didnt speak once!) We asked for a beach front room at the far end away from the restaurant which was provided without problem Lovely clean beach, not the best on the island but certainly... More
