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.

We've been twice in that place, first time in 2012 and now, back again in 2014. Accommodation is one of the best option in low budget, clean and comfortable bungalow. Good location, only 2 minutes walking from Coral Bay. And, finally, the food is really good and not expensive, you can't find another place with better food in Perhentian Kecil.... More

We stayed at Ewan's for a week. The rooms are basic but comfortable with everything you need. The bed was comfortable, there are power sockets to charge things, the bathroom is clean and functional. The staff are pretty friendly (especially Nora!) and the food in the is good and cheap.

We stayed at Ewans place for 6 nights. He does not take reservations, so we were lucky. It is a very clean bungalow, with musquito net and private bathroom. It is situated near coral bay and long beach. We have had a great time, also because of the delicious food in ewans cafe. Every day it is full of people... More
