We stayed here for 5 days with our 2 daughters age 12 and 10. This is a very good resort for families because the beach is very calm and shallow, but you can see lots of fish and even huge turtles. The restaurant serves both western and malay food. From the beach you can take water taxis to other beaches... More

Location of the Resort is nice, with clean rooms and friendly staffs. Need to change and provide better quality of mattress and pillows. We are a bit disappointed with the quality of buffet food served and seafood for barbeque not fresh. The Resort also have spa but with less experience staff. Water activities are good and great. Beach area well... More

This resort has fantastic snorkelling metres from the shoreline. The accomodation was very comfortable. We went diving from Turtle Bay Dive Resort and it was an excellent experience. Unfortunately if you are a food lover, the Perhentian Islands are probably the wrong Malaysian destination for you. The food at this resort was quite bad - fried rice and other dishes... More

We had dinner on their terrace and were the only occupied table of 10 or so. So we were the only customers the 3 staff members had to take care of. They were very friendly with a big smile and put on some nice music. Food was good and prices a bit higher. Recommended for dinner!

Air-cond was leaking and not functioning well. The room's curtain was like not changing for ages. Old furniture, broken desk, damp floor.

We stayed there for 7 days 6 nights. The staff was helpful and professional at all times. We got the snorkeling package which would allow us to go twice a day. The reefs are pretty sweet.

Surrounded by lush greenery, facing white sandy beaches and a warm blue sea, Perhentian Island is a holiday paradise not to be missed. Perhentian Island, or Pulau Perhentian as the locals call it, is well known as a marine paradise and forms a parts of the National Marine Park of Malaysia.
