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

This was our eighth visit to the island, but our first stay at Tuna Bay. Without a doubt, the best accommodation on the island. Great communication via email re booking, collection at airport and transfer by boat - all made the experience worthwhile. The chalets are comfortable and right on the beach. The coral is teaming with different fish species... More

I'd stay here and eat at cocohut. The wifi was awful except in the dining room when everyone else was asleep or on the beach. Jimmy is a very friendly waiter and the breakfast buffet was good. I'm vegan so I only ate the fruit. The beach was pretty nice as was the transportation back and forth from the mainland.... More

When you arrive you are stunned. These beautiful islands with the clear blue water and jungely islands. Amazing. After arrival we couldnt help but notice more and more little things that made our stay less comfortable. The room waa alright, had everything we needed. The towels had a few stains. The restuarant was close and had food which varies from... More

The Perhentians are definitely worth the effort to travel to. Tuna Bay Resort will collect you from the airport and ferry you to their hotel, making transport extra simple. The rooms are basic, but have everything you need. As I mentioned, Tuna Bay appears to be the best place to stay on the Island. Take advantage on the snorkelling trips... More

Location: Facing the waters between the opposite island with a view of some distant islands in the horizon. Right in front of the hotel, there's a beach and a nice coral reef with lots of staghorn coral and some "Nemo"-spots. Rooms: We stayed in a double room facing the garden. Everything was in excellent condition with an exception of the... More
