We went 4 friend from Spain. We went during last part of the season! We could check all rooms in tuna bay, sahula, coconut.... and we decided to take this hotel because the rooms were new, clean and nice location!!! AC too! Wifi is not working very well and it's only in the restaurant! Restaurant food didn't like to much... More

Wonderful location and excellent value for money. Tuna bay wanted about 90 quid a night for a minimum of 7 nights relative to about 38 a triple chalet at Abdul's. We found it basic but clean and excellent value. Would recommend and try for a sea view if possible. Air con worked well and location to jetty was easy. We... More

Abdul's Chalet is located on Perhentian Besar (big island) and we liked that it was a lot quieter and peaceful than Kecil. There were more families and couples there. The room was relatively clean and the bathroom was spacious. No TV in the room, but there was air conditioning, a water heater as well as a mini-fridge. The room was... More

Stayed here last year and the beachfront chalet was wonderful. Its a no-frills chalet and theres not much to do on this side of the island. So, if you are looking for some peace and relaxation, this is a good place. We took the full board package and the meals provided were very tasty. Definitely worth it. The best part,... More

I loved it at Abdul's Chalets. My bungalow ( to call it a chalet is fanciful) was right on the beach with coconut palms and lots of deck chairs to kick back in. It's literally just a stroll out your door into the turquoise sea. Rooms are very basic, clean, good air-con, overhead fan, comfortable beds and have a little... More

Stayed down the beach at Tuna Bay but ate here several times. Rooms looked (at least from the outside) at least as good as Tuna Bay but a little less western. Staffed by friendly people with great food and drinks (non alcoholic) available. Try sharing the spicy belacan and the cooling coconut sauce seafood dishes. Great teh tarak too.

We stayed at Abdul's for 2 nights and had a very nice stay. The chalets are very clean, and surprisingly new. We had no mosquito problems at all (which we were scared of after reading reviews for other places), and the AC worked perfectly, allowing us to have a good night sleep in spite of the high temperatures outside. After... More

I sent them my booking reservations then moment they start to take in reservations for year 2014. They replied promptly with the details for a packaged stay inclusive of meals + snorkeling trip. There are 4 of us in this trip, 2 are interested in snorkeling and another 2 purely in diving. As such, I asked for a room only... More

We booked Abduls chalet's thinking it was a little expensive (compared to other hotels in Malaysia), although all accommodation on the Island is a little pricey. However we were very happy with the rooms when we arrived. We booked a beachfront chalet (which we could only get for 6 nights out of 7) and it was directly on the beach,... More

A Beautiful peaceful location. Fairly basic beach hut facilities, with air conditioning that tripped occasionally but it kept the room cool. Bathroom was basically a wet room and had an electric shower that worked well. No alcohol served at this lodging, but there were a couple of places along the beach that did. Alcohol in this part of the world... More
