Pretty run down and old very basic bungalows. The rooms could do with some furniture, it's literally a bed, and the bungalows a lick of paint. The beach is quiet and very small with little space to lie out. The food is good and the family that run it are lovely. Great snorkelling and you can walk to a few... More

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...

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
