Staff was okay, a smile wouldn't hurt now and then. Nice wooden chalet, a bit dark inside but pretty functional. It's good to have a balcony (for bad weather), but you'll spend most time on the beach or in the water. Lots to see under water; little clownfish and lots of other fish and coral. You can see turtles swimming... More

Stayed for 5 days at Cocohut at a beach chalet. Chalets were small but recently painted with new floors and was decent overall. The water pressure was strong and plenty of hot water. Room came with AC and a fridge. Wifi was only at the restaurant area and it was slow most of the time. Make no mistake, this is... More

Perhentian is a perfect place. When there, you only want to concern about snorkeling or diving. And people from New Cocohut are concerned with your happiness. Our checkin was about 11am, 3 hours before the standard time. First good impression. We had a nice a la carte breakfast and during the other days, we had included buffet breakfast. The wifi... More

We booked 2 adjoining seaview rooms for 3d2n. We went to the reception to clarify as we got 2 separate rooms instead. However, the attitude of the staff were so disappointing and rude. They didnt even apologize for their mistakes but blamed us for not wanting the separate rooms .they even said that they 've never receive any prior notice(obviously... More

I have never put much high expectation on this chalet before going there. It was exactly like the photos shared by other travelers - a simple Malaysian style chalet. However, I hate the toilet because the water pipe was leaking, and the toilet was always in wet condition with unpleasant smell. There were some ants in the toilet and the... More

5 days in late May. Cocohut was as described, very practical and clean for our family of four. Handy location with beach out the front and easy walk to snorkelling. Restaurant provided what we needed and we didnt end up eating anywhere else! All good. Negotiated a snorkelling trip via cocohut and capn was great and patient with the kids.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2015. The quality of the accommodation was among the best on Pulau Perhentian Besar - and good value. The manager was very friendly and polite and she was incredibly helpful. The place is lovely, so relaxing, the beach here is quiet and clean,and the water is turquoise and clear. Rooms could have...

My girlfriend and I (28/33) stayed 5 days on the big perenthian island. Unfortunately we did not reserve a hotel before, hence most of them were already full. Since we did not feel like walking and searching we chose the well located and still vacant a bit expensive place coconut/cosy chalet. Our room was clean and good. Room service only... More
