You don't go to the Perhentians for a party time so seems best to go where the abundant physical beauty is turned up to the max. At Bubbles you can really relax while soaking up the stunning scenery. The people there know what they're doing first to last, swift response to initial inquiry through to sincere, almost touching farewell on... More

When the boat pulled in, we weren't sure of where we were as all We could see were trees and boats anchored out front. But once we got off the boat and walked in, we knew We would love the place. This place is as good as a hotel could get on an island. Don't expect your 5-star luxury here... More

Really enjoyed the ambience of this place - friendly staff, stunning location, nice and private for those who want to get away from it all. Can recommend the jungle walk, and a good idea to go with a guide from the resort so you don't get lost! Snorkelling trip was good (didn't do any diving). Were there during school holidays... More

It wasn't love at first sight. In fact to quote the couple that was seated behind us "this is it?!!" did not sound promising at all. Our check-in experience wasn't about to change our mind either. Although we had pre-booked our diving trip, the reception did not seem to be aware about it. We were convinced we were on a... More

stayed here with my wife in july 2013 and had a marvellous time. all of the staff were incredibly friendly. the rooms and facilities were clear and nice. perhentian islands aren't for 5 star holidays but this is one of the nicest most relaxing places to stay. great value scuba and diving trips out. The private beach on the resort... More

What do i recall about this place? In summary, thumbs up for the location, diving and conservation efforts, neutral for the level of service rendered and for the room. For food served, its pathetic. If you can't sleep, read on for my long winded elaboration. Bubbles stands out for what I feel is their genuine care for the environment, nature... More

Thank you very much for your very detail review. First of all we apologised on the curtains, which is my life's work to get it working since the contractor installed the rail a little too short! It will be replaced for next season. As for the fallen leaves and twigs are the negative on having the nice open air shower... More

The location was perfect!! A own private beach in front of the resort. The food was good, but quite expensive comparing to Malaysia standards. But the main disapointment was the staff. The staff was very unfriendly! The staff were only busy with each other and not with their guests.. If we asked something we get not clear answers, which is... More

Hi, Thank you for your feed back, and very sorry for our English. We will work hard on that and improve our friendliness, which is highlighted very highly on most of the other reviews. I think we got too near to the closing season, and our crew are all getting relaxed. More

I wish I could go this place for a few weeks every year. Beautiful spot, very very friendly staff, clean and spacious accommodation. Turtles have chosen the beach at Bubbles to nest, this means its clean and quiet. (the staff also cleans the beach on a daily basis). Perfect for snorkling and diving. This is real paradise...

I visited Bubbles on a World Challenge Expedition with 17 other students from my school as part of the turtle conservation project that is currently running at Bubbles. After a short boat ride from the fishing town of Kuala Besut we arrived at Bubbles private beach and were greeted by all of the awesome staff who escorted us off the... More

I'm not much of a diver myself. Didn't even pull myself to go snorkeling. It was my first time in Perhentian and boy, am I impressed with Bubbles! People are friendly, decent rooms, AMAZING food (was totally surprised tbh). And the view, simply breathtaking! The beach is very well kept. And the best part is since Bubbles was the only... More
