There are 2 Flora Bays. Stay at Flora Bay 1 if you're diving to be nearer the dive centre and avoid lugging heavy dive gear and underwater cameras to and fro. Flora Bay 1 and 2 is 1 resort apart. There is another resort in between them. The downside is that the twin and double rooms seems to be all... More

The key here is not to go in with high expectations. There’s no phone signal and wifi speeds from dial-up times, so come prepared accordingly. You will have to purchase a wifi pass if you want to use it 20RM for 7-days for one device. The rooms are perfectly adequate, and have an a/c, bed, mini fridge and a hot... More

Being here on May'14 for PADI Open Water course. Came in a big group and most of us stayed at Hill View Terrace Fan rooms. My room condition, old but clean. One Queen sized bedroom easily fit two adults for an OK sleep at night. It was rather hot during the day so my advice is to stay outside. It... More

My partner and I travelled to Perhentian Besar for scuba diving. For me this was a return visit, but no way was I staying where I'd previously stayed. We stayed for 6 nights at the Flora Bay Resort because when we were making enquiries they were the only resort who bothered to reply to my emails in a reasonable time.... More

The sea view is amazing, calm and relax. It is not busy or noisy as other beaches although the rooms are fully booked. It is not the luxury beach life, but we get the relaxation by only sitting on the beach without doing anything. The staffs not so friendly but can considered helpful. The BBQ buffet dinner is recommended to... More

Was at flora bay recently for five days. Really enjoyed it. Rooms and bathrooms are basic but comfortable. Sea view room was practically on the beach- good for sitting on verandah with the sea breeze and listening to the waves in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful, within two days, most of them knew which room we were from.... More

Stayed at Florabay for 1 night (we booked for 2), employees were not very kind and they looked like they HAD to be there! They charge WIFI, although we paid €25 p.p.p.n. (Way to much) Bathroom was not as expected, after seeing the pictures on there website. We would go back for the beach, NOT the Resort! M&N

I can only comment on the cheapest rooms at this hotel. The hill view fan rooms at the back of the property. Yes they are getting old and tatty. The bed was reasonably comfortable. There were a few insects and spiders sharing with me (I expect this in the tropics and I like spiders so no prob for me) The... More

We had fan only room, old but ok. Fan was noisy. Good value for the low price. The food was VERY good (halal = no alcohol) and the waiters were very friendly. Large beach with crystal clear water ! Excellent spot for snorkelling very near the resort. Took a 3 hour snorkel trip to other beaches and were very pleased.

I have visited here 5 times over the last 11 years and it is one of my very favourite places ever. Friendly staff from the dive shop to the restaurant. Mahadi and Mahani always make you feel welcome and Azman and Zamani in the dive shop will get you diving. Beautiful corals and sea life and perfect for divers and... More
