My bf and I stayed here for 3 nights in March. The location is wonderful, beautiful little corner of paradise. Amazing beach. We heard that I was closing soon which is a real shame because there is so much that could be done with this place. The staff : Kerry, Rylan and Vanessa, were helpful for certain things and not...

Good evening to you Thank you for your honest opinion with regards to Petani Beach House. Unfortunately the rumors are all true, we have CLOSED Petani Beach House. We closed the doors on the 31st March 2014. The landowner is now selling the land and buildings. We were given notice on and off in the past 5 years, each time... More

Both my wife Alison and I can not endorse all the previous positive comments enough that you may have already read in reviews about Petani Beach. We visited in February for almost a 3 week stay. The first glimpse from the boat as we approached is something we will never ever forget. The greeting we received by the staff was... More

This is a fantastic place to stay on Kecil, you are a stroll away from nightlife if you need it although at night you might need a water taxi. The beach is impressive and by far the best on Kecil as the others are dirty and build up. This traveller resort feels like a family, you get to know everyone... More

We just returned from an amazing stay at Petani Beach today. We ended up staying two weeks instead of only a few days. Stuck in paradise! :) Everything was fantastic: the food, the location, the cosy bungalow, the lovely decorations, the white sand beach. But above all: the Petani team. Kerry, Vanessa and Rylan, thank you so much for making... More

This place's just perfect if you wish a peaceful, quiet, tranquil holiday to escape from the busy, crowded life in the city. I came here during low season with my friend so it felt like we own the whole beach. The beach was clean with clear water. The chalet was nice with the beach just steps away from your door.... More

Its the kind of place that I never thought I'll find right in the heart of Perhentian Island. I've been to Perhentian several times. More than I can remember. I've stayed at several places. But this one, struck me right at the heart. It stays, to these day. Ive been dragging the day to post this review. As I don't... More

Hi All. I just thought I would write a post to let you know the bad news that I heard today after having dealt with the wonderful people at Petani for the last month or so about our holiday for 2014 - Petani is in the process of being taken over by some other operator as from 1 Jan 2014.... More

Long overdue review but I couldn't not write one! Days spent here feel exactly like a total escape from reality should, I loved it!

Everyone has already said it, not much to add. We walked to the big beaches, and were very happy to have chosen petani beach. Compared to petani beach the other places are quite depressing. Lot of dirt on the beaches and no shade or wind. Petani beach is quiet, wonderful, enough shade by the palms, always a little breeze and... More

From our initial view arriving on the fast boat we realised what a wonderful decision we had made staying here. The staff at petani go above and beyond to make sure you have the best, most personal experience whilst staying with them. The wildlife is beautiful, the beach peaceful with ample shade and space to soak up the sun. The... More
