Ewans not only has the best budget bungalows in all of Kecil, but also the best resaurant. Bungalows are clean and spacious with a good fan and a small terrace. Wi-fi was amazingly good and Ewan and his wife are very friendly and available to help out (or sell) whatever you need.

Ewans provides a pretty decent room compared to a lot of the places on the island - the bed and bathroom does the job fine but it's fairly basic accommodation for 80 ringgit. The restaurant is also good and service is fairly quick. It's located about 2 mins walk from coral beach or 5-10 mins from long beach. The worst... More

Spacious, comfortable and very clean chalets. The price was very good (80 RM per night) considering that they have 24/7 electricity and functional wi-fi ( this is rare on the island and at this price). Their restaurant near the chalets is really the best in town, with good prices. And the fact that they are on the second line from... More

You cannot book the chalets in advance, so you have to be there early in the morning and have the luck that someone will move out of one of the chalets. We went there the first morning (around 08:00) and had the luck that there was a chalet available. The chalets are nice, clean and comfortable. It's nice you have... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon while backpacking in Asia. It was recommended to us by a guy we met on Perhentian. The rooms are really large with a lovely four poster bed. It's spotless inside. You are provided with a broom to sweep the sand up (and you inevitably bring some in). The showers are cold... More

We stayed at Ewans place for 6 months whilst we worked on Perhentian Islands as dive instructors. We paid 65rm a night, which we considered to be a reasonable rate, regarding other accommodation on the island. The rooms were clean and quite big, with a double bed and private bathroom. The chalets were 5 minutes walk from Coral Bay and... More

Very basic and cheap place in Kecil island. It's 2 minutes walk from Coral beach and 10 minutes walk to long beach. It costs 65 MYR for night, and they don't provide towels and toilet paper. Its a very basic, low budget accommodation and some of the bungalows need some improvements. They don't take reservations, don't mind calling or sending... More

Ewans restaurant had a good breakfast for the usual money, it is all slightly better than the rest on the island. The few chalets do not look interesting and offer no view on Coral Bay. We just had breakfast here every day and stayed at the beautiful butterfly chalet.
