I read all the reviews before I came and was prepared for the paper-thin walls, spotty WiFi connection, and no room-cleaning. But other than that, Senja was great. It's cheap, and moderately comfortable and very close by to our Dive Shop (Anti-Gravity Divers), and the staff really helpful. Come here if you're looking for budget accommodation right by the shore,... More

First impressions last and our first impression was in the restaurant. The staff couldn't be any less slow, lazy and unattentive - and I'm quite used to the Malaysian service standard. Someone has gone to the trouble of installing a button system for service - press the button on your table and it appears on a screen for the staff,... More

We spent four nights here. We had a room on the second level, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the bay. The steps to the room are very high. The bed sheets were not white as usual but with a floral pattern, so that is difficult to notice at first if they are stained. In fact, with... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to have dinner and enjoy the beautiful sunset so our resort recommended the senja bay restaurant. There was a great view of the horizon while we waited for the sunset and the food was superb. We like spicy food so tried their local curry. Amazingggg. They have the best roti canai... More

Stayed at Senja Bay Resort for 8-9 days and can only say good things about it. Big clean room with a nice view from the balcony. Very friendly staff that can help with most the things you would expect. Breakfast was included and pretty good, only ate there one morning so I can't really say much about it. Room rates... More

Located on coral bay, it's a beautiful and quiet place to be. The coral does make it a bit painful to walk out into the sea at times, but it's a small price to pay. It's worth bearing in mind that the hotel is at the opposite end of the beach to the jetty, so it can be a bit... More

Stayed here for four nights, enjoyed pretty much because of the location. We took a mini bungalow with a fan ( doesn't help with the humidity and hot air ). So we recommend to take air conditioned rooms, but they are much more expensive and they are not on the beach! The free breakfast was delicious, The Senja Restaurant is... More

We stayed there for only 2 nights. The room is very simple and they need to be refurbished. Food are quite ok but don't expect much and some menu are running out of stock. You are allowed to bring your own drinks including alcohol in the dining area but make sure to bring your own glass. The beach in front... More

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in a 3rd level fan room. The room ,as they all are, is very basic. Bed, bathroom and balcony. We had a very good view from our 3rd level one as it is up high. That comes with the price of a lot of very steep stairs but it is also... More

We stayed in one of their beach bungalows. Compared to some of the other accomodation I saw on the beach, I think Senja is a good option. Most of the others were extremely basic with electricity only for a few hours a day. Our beach bungalow was right on the beach with there being lots of sunloungers and some of... More
