Suria Dive Resort
We spent our first night at Lily Chalets but then moved here. Staying in October was good. The island is winding down for the monsoon season. It is quiet on the island.
It was 75rm a night for a chalet with aircon. They only have electricity from 6.30pm-9.30am. We were backpacking so had our own silk liners so sleep in. The chalet's are basic.
Internet is also available but we found it cheaper in the shop on long beach (after 6.30pm)
The dive centre was shut in October but we found the snokelling good. It is quite shallow when the tide is low. One day we found ourselves snorkelling in 5ft of water surrounded by huge bumphead parrot fish. We did go diving from the main dive centre on long beach.
The menu was very limited, they don't serve alcohol. Most of the time we walked to long beach to eat at Lily restaurant which was good and cheap.
We took a water taxi to Perhentian Island Resort one day, the beach here is fantastic.
We enjoyed the wild life on the island, with the huge geckos outside our chalet, monitor lizards ( it was sad to see them sifting through the rubbish for food by long beach, one almost ate a kitten), saw a few snakes, one stayed in the same tree for a week.
Were there during Hari Raya, they put on a buffet and we ate for free that day enabling the friendly staff to have a rest.
Would love to return to the Perhentian Islands.
