We have been at Panorama Chalet, Long Beach, Perhentian Kecil in May 2008.
The Chalets are built in a little slope, most of them overlooking the Garden. The rooms closer to the beach are closer to the generator and the Palm Tree Cafe (playing loud music all night). The rooms further up in the garden are quiter.
We booked an A-Frame hut with Fan for 75 Ringgit as all Aircon-Rooms have been occupied. The Rooms are simple but nice. They are wooden on stilts, with a double or twinbed, mosquitonet, cold water, fan, porch with chairs.
The room itself was nice, but the bathroom could have been cleaner.
There is no room service at all, staff will not come and clean your room. If you need new bedsheets, towels or toiletpaper, just go to the receiption and ask for it.
Electricity from late afternoon until 8am.
Safetybox free of charge at the receiption - but only available from 7.30 am until 4.30 pm as the Boss leaves the house and takes the key.
Panorama has rooms starting from 35 Ringgit with shared facilities, Room with fan and attached bath for 65 and 75 Ringgit. AC-Rooms start from 100 - 150 Ringgit. The Rates include one free Dinner per night. (may 2008)
Food at Panorama Restaurant was good, especially the Dinner BBQ. Concerning drinks it is BYO, you can buy softdrinks at Panorama restaurant. If you eat with several persons - Food never arrives at the same time even if you have ordered the same meal. But friendly staff and good prices will compensate this.
We have booked a snorkeling trip with Panorama for 40 Ringgit per person, snorkling gear included - excluding lunch and drink. Better bring some water.
We did this tour with Mizzy, who is a snorkling guide and also works in the Panorama-Restaurant. As most of the snorklingtrips do the same route, Mizzy just checked which snorkling spot had few visitors and went there. He also snorkled with us and showed us some nices things I would not have noticed.
I have been diving with Sea Dragon Divers, which is attached to Panorama. They offer special rates for Panorama guests.
Equipment was ok, divesite introduction was good and the divemasters Sharon, Trish and Rob are very friendly.
