We did not stay there but used to have our meals each evening at their nice outdoor seated tables. Nothing fancy but food was tasty. Especially their Milo shake which our kid loved. Also, us being vegetarians, they accommodated us well. And yes, the best part of dining at their place in evenings is the lovely breeze which flows from... More

1. Basic fan room with attached bathroom cost me RM60/night 2. Located on the quieter side of the island(Pulau Perhentian Besar) 3. Very relaxing stay. Not a tourist trap like Perhentian Kecil. 4. Restaurants are available along the beach. Be informed it is quite pricey. And, no beer. 5. Beach overall are well maintained by the staff. 6. There is... More

We loved staying here, at first we thought too basic but we stayed a week and had everything we needed. It's so hot a cold shower from a hose is all we needed, we don't like aircon so the fan was enough. It was home to us. Food wasn't good but at trip through the jungle was an adventure to... More

tho i gave this chalet an average rating, does not mean Fauna Beach Chalet (FBC) have nothing to offer. The accommodation is very simple with attached bathroom and basic amenities. Well suits for our low budget accommodation. Why you need a decent room when you are about to fully occupy yourself in island? well it is enough for me to... More

The location is stunning and the snorkelling package is excellent value. The rooms are very basic so bear that in mind when you book and you wont be dissapointed. A couple of meals a day are included be warned the choice is limited and if the resort is busy they quickly run out and don't rush to top up what... More

If you are on a budget holiday, Fauna Chalet might suit you. However, please take note of the conditions:- The rooms are pretty old with minimal maintenance. Expect ants and cockroaches in the room and/or bathroom. The bathroom had no ventilation and smells like sewage. The shower doesn’t work because the water pressure is too low, plus, saw mosquito larvae... More
