Paid RM300 for a night's stay, which is a bit more compared to the many budget options available on Perhentian Kecil. But other places charged RM70-RM160 and what you get is something dead basic. That's how it is on the islands here, where prices are inflated. What we got however was a bit better than 'basic'. It's modelled as a... More

We stayed here for 2 days and every penny spent here was worth it .. The climatic condition were quite unpredictable but we were never bored in resort too ... It was more like a tree house and the staff were quite friendly. The good part was there were many beaches connected to the resort, 2 mins away were the... More

We came here for a couple of days just to get away from hazy KL in March. Only now that I remember to write a review (how unmemorable this place was..). First of all, I knew that the resort is not located at Long Beach which is the main beach in Perhentian Kecil. The beach on this side is not... More

Arrived early, we were given an option to either choose a room that is far but ready immediately or a room that is near but will only be ready at 3.00pm. We chose the room that is ready immediately which was a bad choice because it was quite a distance. The room was decent. The staff however was nowhere near... More

We booked just a standard room on an online deal. Whilst the resort is very clean and the breakfast included is good, the chalet itself had no windows which was so depressing when you are trying to relax at a bright beach destination. Also the staff were rude, dismissive and unhelpful, and they have a drainage problem all over their... More

Spent two nights on Long Beach on Perhentians Kechil island and it was horrible - disgousting hostels, garbage everywhere and music pounding through the whole night. Switched to Shari-La Island Resort, got a Suite Bungalow and it was absolutely fantastic, clean, calm and spectacular. The price-level for these kinds of resort-bungalows are usually very hight but in Shari La only... More

Planned last minute trip to perhentian before the monsoon starts, in Malaysia island on the east coast close normally between November to March, this including Perhentian Island. There were 4 of us going to this trip. Called around the island and was very lucky to get this place available. It was during the Malaysia Day so everyone had a long... More

The location is nice, although Coral Bay itself is not a beach where people bathe, but more a port than a beach and the "private" beach is tiny and rocky, there are a few old, unconfortable, shabby loungers and no parasols; the bungalow (at least the one we got) was nice and big, although quite dark (inside it looks like...

Had an awful experience at this resort just last week. We arrived to the islands and were looking forward to a lovely island stay, we have travelled alot of asia so we dont expect luxury but a clean and basic room is sufficient. The property itself is big and the grounds of it are well kept with alot of outside... More

The resort is very nicely situated just off the main pier. However very few rooms have ocean views. The private beach is quite small but they do have some loungers and you can snorkel right off it. Watch out for the little fish as they bite!! We liked the fact they were bungalows but they covered all the walls with... More
