Abdul's is clean and family run, and is the best value for money on the whole island. The staff are great, and the food is delicious. Every night they run a barbecue, where you can get grilled fish or squid or chicken or lobster in a combo with salad, rice, and fruit juice. Awesome! Their beach is nice, and there... More

Located on the big islands with an OK beach in front but not the best. Nice, easy snorkeling with quite a lot of fish and coral at your doorstep but there is a big concrete pier in front, not really idyllic. Advice: walk 10min south along the beach and there it is really tranquil! Or take a water taxi to... More

The room is simple and clean with hot shower and aircon. Also has a small balcony with table and chair. The best part is the location, stay away from crowd. Food are decent but if you walk 2 mins to TunaBay, food there are very good!! The corals in front of TunaBay is amazing too! I would love to go... More

We stayed one week at Abdul´s Chalet and enjoyed the fantastic island very much. The hotel (not the right word) is very nice and we stayed at a Deluxe Sea View chalet with a veranda directly in front of palms and the ocean. Definitly worth the extra costs! Abduls is generally located at the end of the biggest beach on... More

Very nice location, fantastic beach og snorkling (with fish) infront of beach 5 meters out. Staff polite but a smile was hard to get. Small shop with souvenirs, drinks and used books. OK restaurant. Other restaurants down the beach. Laundry service. If you want to relax this is the place. Free wifi near the restaurant.

Nice, conveniently located friendly place. We stayed in a bungalow with no air con and never felt that we actually needed one. The only minor inconvenience was a bit of a noise late at night from the neighbours in the room next door. As the walls between the rooms are fairly thin the quality of your sleep depends on how...

Perhentian means 'place to stop' and you should stop at Abdul's when you want to go to the Perhentian Island's. The chalets of Abdul's are just perfect. Consider that you're in a less developed part of Malaysia and that the standard overall is less than in KL for example. My girlfriend and I stayed in chalet no. 1 which is... More

A great little gem, great location away from everything bad in perhentian. We had a beach chalet and enjoyed our week at abdul. The food isn't great, but not why you live here. And how the malaysian army or government can justify building the pier on the middle of this beautiful beach is just evil. Now thats not abduls fault.... More
