Lovely resort but badly let down by its cafe, which blares out 70s heavy metal all through the day. We asked them to turn it down (or off) but were told the manager likes it that way. Unless you want to see one of the world's most beautiful sunsets (senja means 'sunset') to high-decibel Spandau Ballet, then this resort is... More

We were staying on the bigger island and took a water taxi over to long beach, then walked through to Coral Bay as we needed to book some accommodation for a couple nights in advance. We chose to stay at Coral Bay over Long Beach, as Long Beach looked filthy - paradise lost. The staff at Senja showed us an... More

First of all, I need to give a huge thanks to the staff at Senja Bay. We came to Perhentian Kecil in hope to book accomodations along the stay, but during the weekend this was quite impossible. The staff went out of their ways to try to find us a vacant room and did so, even though we had to... More

LOCATION Senja is located on the Coral Bay. It was built on the slight slope facing the beautiful beach of white sand and clear seawater. This resort does not has swimming pool, I noticed that all the other resorts also do not have their own pool but since is located right in front of the sea, you can simply just... More

We spent a little more on the beachfront chalets and did not regret it at all. Senja bay's the best resort on coral bay (even better than shari-la, in our opinion) because its the only one that has a beach and water area that is restricted from boats. the other places have motor boats parked in front of them and...

It was a great experience getting to the island. Senja bay resort is very easy to find as it sits on coral bay, with a great beach for snorkelling in front of the hotel. Breakfast was buffet style, or you could choose to pay off the menu. It included both local and western food. The room was very very basic... More

Senja Bay Resort isn't really a resort as much as the name states. It is a rather basic resort which has a nice dining area. The rooms are split in to sea front, 2nd level and 3rd level. The pricing wasn't that cheap considering (RM250) what is available in the bay as well as around Perhentian Kecil and Besar. I... More

Nice hotel in a great place. Very beautiful view from the room and balcony. We were in a off season, so the value was very good. Walls in the room were very thin like paper! :) Hotel location is straight on the beach. You can go snorkeling like 20 meters from hotel.

We arrived on Coral Bay not having booked a hotel, and looked at a few places before deciding to stay here. If you want to get the cheapest place possible, there are other hotels nearby with very basic run down rooms that cost about RM80 a night. We paid RM160 for a room at Senja and were very happy we...
