This place is pure paradise. With just a few bungalows on the beach you really feel like you are on your own private island. The bungalows are quaint, about 20 metres from the water's edge and in a lovely garden. The food was excellent and I mean excellent. typical Malaysian dishes which are to die for. Roti Canai for breakfast... More

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...

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
