When I arrived on the kecil island, my friend and I walked around for half an hour, seeing which places had the cheapest dorms. Unfortunately all were fully booked or way overpriced, and Panorama was the only option left. The dorm we stayed in charged 40 MYR a night and it consisted of 20+ bunk beds in one huge room,... More

We went to Panorama chalets and restaurant altogether three times. None of them went as hoped. First time we were looking for a room for 4 people for 3 nights. The receptionist laughed at us and said that if we are not diving with them we have no change of making a reservation. He told us to come back next... More

Our dinner at Panorama chalets was the worst part of our three week trip in SE Asia. We ordered four pizzas and two pizzas arrived in fair amount of time but the other two pizzas never came. When we asked the staff whether the pizzas were coming, three people came separately to ask us what pizzas were missing. They obviously... More

We read (online and at the agency in Besut) that the 'Small' island was cheaper than the 'Big' island and found the exact opposite. We stayed on both (fan room, double, private bath). Small island is def the party island while the Big island has more families and couples. Overall, we had lots of fun at both places! Pros- large... More

Dorm rooms are ok, air conditioning and ok mattresses. However, no real secure storage - there is a safe at reception but is one big box and no apparent system for safeguarding from someone just picking up your valuables. Location is great if you are coming to Perhentians for the party, bang in the middle of Long Beach. 2 major... More

Made the error of coming to Perhentian Kecil on a weekend and stayed with Panorama due to lack of alternative options. We stayed here 3 nights in the dorm. Dorm was fine, standard bunk beds in dorm for approx 30 people. No blanket / top sheet provided so bring your own or use a sarong. Only 3 charge points for... More

it is a very simple room if you don't mind to stay in the village situation (mosquito bite) , just a bed and toilet. basic needs such towel and blanket need to ask at receptionist. the receptionist (Kak Ros if i not mistaken) very pleasant to help us to lend some of their cookery things.

We arrived to this place since it was the only with ac room for our budget. Very simple room. Terrible mattress. Plenty of misquitoes, you should use your net. Better not to talk about the worst shared bathroom in Malaysia. Keep your shoes and flipflops in your room otherwise they'll be stolen by the local staff. We lost our mint... More

I stayed here in 2006 and from what I read, it seems the chalet has not changed at all. I have given my review in Tripadvisor but I could not locate it now. Just to make it short, please stay away from here as it is super run down. Yes they do provide very very "basic" facilities but they are... More
