This was my first visit to the Perhentians, and they are beautiful. Having visited just Long Beach and Coral Bay, I will say that of the two Long Beach offers a much nicer beach, with very soft sand and far fewer anchors disturbing it than at Coral Bay. We arrived on Saturday over easter weekend, and sadly were unable to... More

We stayed 3 nights at Bubu resort. Very nice place but a bit too expensive compared to other places and to what you get. Very nice and clean room. Spacious with lots of hangers and drawers. Food in the restaurant was the best we had during our 3 weeks in Malaysia. Big portions and nice presentation. Also good BBQ. Drinks... More

The hotel is by the beach (long beach) in a quieter end, away from the night bars. Peaceful island resort that differentiates from the other accommodations on Kecil island (also on the price since it is more expensive). You should try to book this hotel (specially from May to September) for about 2 or 3 months in advance I should... More

Dear BrunoAMS, Thank you for your wonderful review. We just wanted to explain the reason why our wifi connection is limited is because the infrastructure on the island is not sufficient. The remoteness of the island means that the bandwidth that we get cannot support many users at the same time. However, for any emergencies (like booking tickets or communicating... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Bubu Resort in March 2015. We arrived by plane in Kota Bharu and were welcomed by a staff member of the resort, who drove us to the harbour at Besut, about 50 mins by airconditined van. We were welcomed at their office and checked in. Next, we were taken to the... More

Bubu is the most classy among the rest. Clean, comfortable. The room was clean. If you're going with your family members i suggest that you choose the room with the garden view. The stuffs there are friendly, attentive. Clear water, clean beach, fresh seafood.

My boyfriend and, both in our 30s, spent a week at the BuBu Resort in September 2014. I had been to Perhentian Kecil in 2003 when I was travelling and I loved it so I was very keen to go back. At the time the BuBu Resort didn't exist and therefore relied on the Tripadvisor reviews before booking. On my... More

It was an unintentional gate away for me. I had a pleasant 2 nights stay in the deluxe room and it is a magical moment.

Great restaurant! For dinner you could have a romantic table on the beach and for lunch you can have a refreshing drink or a snack and under the shadow of the terrace. You'll better reserve in advance! Credit card are accepted

I would highly recommend Bubu Resort after visiting in July of this year. By far the nicest accommodation on the island and worth every penny. I was on a 3 week trip incorporating Malaysia, Thailand and Dubai. We stopped here for 4 nights arriving via the resort speedboat, definitely the way to arrive as staff transport your bags to the...
