SSSSHHH big secret Palau Kapas! There is I think two KBC; one with chalets which is amazing & the other with dorms, rooms & a terrific estaurant. The Sat night BBQ is to die for! This past week I had the awesome opportunity to stay in a dorm. While I was there I met some wonderful peeps who were travelling...

Kapas is paradise on earth! And KBC (chalets, not the restaurant) is the best place to stay on the island! Atmosphere is amazing, if you wanna relax or if you wanna have drinks at nights, you can do both! The owner Kayan is very nice and very helpful! I've been there three times in 4 years and the place keeps...

Kapas Beach Chalet is definitely one of my favorite accommodation!!!! The bungalows are clean and spacious, the surrounding is very nice and the k.b.c. family is spreading positive vibes to make the whole thing even better. Perfect place to relax and calm down. And the food (the serve breakfast & dinner) is delicious, loved the vegetarian curry rendang.

Unfortunately I couldnt get a room there while I was in Kapas for it was fully booked. I regretted it bc this is the place to be if you go to Kapas. Nice ambiance! Excellent food at reasonable price. The service can be a bit slow, for the place is always packed. The staff makes you fell at home. I...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“Good idea to ask for an itemised bill as there tends to be a little creativity, in the owner's favour of course, when it's busy and the drinks have flown”
