The island is infested with sea urchin. Me and my family were bitten all over the body once we go into the beach. The worst is at the jetty. I was bitten all over in just a minute. I will never return to pulau besar. I had been to many islands but never as bad as this island.

Food was excellent and we've... More

First of all, I would really like to thanks all the staffs for my birthday surprise during the trip. They found out my birthday from my Identity Card and give a surprise birthday cake without any extra charge during dinner. What I can say is, they take the initiative to make their guest feel good and feel warm. When I... More

A friend of mine and me stayed at the Mirage for 4D3N during CNY 2015. We loved every single minute of our stay. The owner is the heart and soul of the resort and he and his staff are what makes the place special. They are super friendly, helpful and it feels like you are visiting a friend. I came... More

Staff are friendly. Owner very helpful. Boat ride wet but fun. They delayed our return due to weather & arranged for us to... More
