KBC is simply a wonderful place to stay on a really enjoyable island. It has a laid back atmosphere, a friendly, helpful staff and an owner who understands how to make guests feel at home and relaxed. Add a location on a beach of white flour sand, comfy, simple bungalows and very good food and its safe to say our... More

Clean, comfy and basic chalets by the beach. Kayan (owner) is extremely flexible and even set up a BBQ for us to prepare our own steaks (brought from KL). Whenever someone from KBC was going to the mainland for shopping they would ask if we needed anything. Kapas is ideal if you are looking for a laid back island get... More

Had most of our meals for our trip at the restaurant by KBC. The service was good and the ambience and layout of the restaurant (especially outdoors) is great for both big groups and small. The food portions were large too, and delicious, perfect for a meal by the beach. Ps. Try their Blue Cheese Special! Yumms!

Great food and staff! We stay at the 'resort' about 5 minutes down the beach but spent all our time at KBC. great location especially if your scuba diving and better than the other resort. Lovely fresh food served. Although waiting times are long (hence why Ive give it 4 not 5 start) but very chilled vibes of the area... More

nice place with very simple A-hut chalets. Good manager. very green and creative manager in recycling things such as dead coral as flower pots, dead sea shells as decoration, wine bottles. simple and very basic rooms. rooms hot in afternoon but very cool outside under the big trees facing the open blue sea

When we called KBC, they said it was fully booked so we had to settle for Kapas Coral Beach Chalet which was an absolute nightmare. The food there was horrible so we went to KBC for breakfast, lunch & dinner every day. The only saving grace of my trip was the beautiful beach & KBC. We are a group of... More

I arrived at Pulau Kapas knowing that KBC was one of the most recommended places on the island and despite the lack of ways to contact them (I was going without a booking), we falled in love with the place. They didn't have room for us for the first night, but except sleeping, I did all my life in the... More

After traveling for months in South East Asia we needed some time to relax. And if you want to relax this is the place. Pulau Kapas is a very tiny island with very basic accomodations. This place was perfect, we first intended to stay for three nights. We ended up staying for over a week. Kayen the owner is Malay,... More

KBC was, alas, full when we were on Kapas so I can't comment upon the accommodation but the restaurant was excellent. The overall look and feel of the place was proper, driftwood, beach bum, laid back tropical paradise. On top of that it was very kiddy friendly with cool staff (Wan was brilliant, thanks), the food was genuine, delicious, generously... More
