We moved from Coral Bay to Long Beach and stayed at Bintang View with the lovely Irish lady who made us feel very looked after. She was so friendly and gave us lots of good advice about the island.(great library too!) The staff were very sweet and attentive. Because Bintang View is up on the hill above Long Beach, there...

Me and a friend shared a bungalow here for about 4-5 nights and it was well worth it. We had previously stayed at the Tropicana Inn which offered no security, rude and creepy staff so the change was so much better. The room was simple with only a fan, double bed and a mosquito net. We had our own porch... More

Stumbled across this place by chance, ended up staying 3 nights. Rooms are basic but simply perfect, the view was breathtaking. Each chalet has its own balcony, we had a private bathroom. Staff were helpful, it was only a short walk to the beech, bars and restaurants. It was also near the path too walk to the other side of... More

Bintang View Chalets and Restaurant are located up the hill from the beach, behind Matahari Chalets. It is a steep walk, the path is lousy (both of them), and the view is FANTASTIC! I chose to stay in a private, double-bed chalet, with shared facilities. I LOVE IT!!! It feels like being in a Retreat Hut... QUIET (most of the... More

I stayed here two nights before moving to a different place. I arrived on the island at 9:30 am, and the place I had wanted to stay (Ewan's) was already booked. I remembered reading pretty positive reviews of Bintang, so I thought I'd give them a try. I later regretted that decision. First of all, who owns this place? The... More

I stayed here with 3 other friends for only one night, having intended to stay for 4. The chalets are up a unpaved and unlit hill which makes it horrible to come back to in the evenings. On top of this the chalets are in like.. the middle of the jungle.... so mosquitos and bugs were everywhere! Like most places... More

We stayed there for almost a week and it was a very nice time! Its close to Long Beach, but its not right at the beach. We liked it because we didnt hear the music from the fire shows that loud. Its also close if you want to walk to Coral Bay. The rooms were very simple and it can... More

We stayed at the Bintang view for one night during our week stay on kecil. When we arrived we had to wait a long time to be able to check in which was fine and the staff were nice. There was no food in the restaurant though since they said the other staff was on leave. We were offered the... More

Bintang View is definitely a good option if you come to the Perhentians. We looked around mostly all of the accommodation on Kecil and Bintang was by far the best for your money. It is a basic room with a bed and mosquito net, wall fan and outdoor balcony. Its basically a big version of a cubby house. Electricity is... More

Good value for money. Finola was friendly and helpful. Hoping to visit again in the near future and would definitely recommend to backpackers to stay in Bintang View. If your looking for good value and decent food in Perhentians, look for Ewan's Restaurant.
