Best value for money on the beach! Lovely staff. Ari, Res and the gang are really sweet people. Clean room, comfortable bathroom and beautiful garden! Free breakfast of waffles or pancakes. Great fresh smoothies! Next to a ton of restaurants.

We had our first dive there with a lesson and then went on two dives the next day. They were fantastic! would highly recommend. We also ate at Bayu and it was... More

We had a very good time here. Room was spacious enough for two. Very friendly and kind staff members; very good restaurant (chicken satay is simply delicious). It includes the Alu Alu Divers school if you wanna take snorkeling or diving lessons.

We had a wonderful time at Bayu. We stayed for five nights, did the Padi open water course (which was a lot of fun) and left the island relaxed and happy. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is laid back, perfect for a beach holiday. Why only three stars though? Because of the room. It wasn't horrible, but could... More

Before Bayu we spent 2 nights in Fauna on the same beach - we paid almost twice as much per night and the room was awful, not... More

A great bar by the sea, at nights they do a barbeque with fresh fish. The service is kind and funny and the music is good super good to relax with the amazin views of the perhentian beach. From now on the best place in this part of the island. We will come back

We stayed at the sea view cottage for 3 nights. The cottage is dark inside, but the room and the bathroom are very clean. The room has enough space, the bed was very comfy and the A/C helped us through hot nights. From our balcony we had a stunning view of the beach/sea. Even tough the cottage is a little... More

We ended up staying here for 4 nights recently after struggling to find better accommodation available on the dates we wanted. On the plus side there is an attached dive operator, which is very convenient. The location is also quite nice with only a few places to stay in the vicinity. But the rooms are very basic, the food is... More
