Very clean & spacious room by the beach with cool calm sea. Good food with reasonable price & portion. Nice clean white sandy beach which my boy enjoy after his swim. Neighbor to lots of coral which is the home of many fish. Will definitely come again.

We spent 8 days at Tuna Bay Island Resort. Very nice and relaxing place with very friendly staff. We had deluxe family room with sea view, the rooms are clean, and the location is perfect, right on the beach. There is a house reef where you can snorkel, and a very nice dive shop (Universal Diver) next door to the... More

We have just come back from a great week at Tuna Bay. We wanted a week of reading and being able to snorkel from the beach and Tuna Bay provided the perfect location for this. I would recommend the more expensive beach chalets for the private loungers if you think you will be using them. The room was much better... More

The resort is located on Big Perhentian. This is a quieter island than Small Perhentian island, which is more for younger backpackers. Tuna Bay Island Resort is a great place. You can walk out of your bungalow straight onto the beach and swim around the reef. The restaurant was nice, we enjoyed all of the meals we ate here. You... More

We have stayed at tuna bay four times so it's safe to say we love it. I would like to see a refrigerator in all the rooms, tea and coffee making facilities available for guests - complimentary and cushions on the very uncomfortable deck chairs. Otherwise the rooms are clean and cool with air-con. The restaurant is really good and... More

My partner and I were visiting my Mum in Kuala Lumpur and decided to take some time out to see the Islands. We booked three nights with Tuna Bay and I wish we had stayed longer - it is absolute paradise. Snorkelling was something we both were really keen on doing and had read online that Langkawi whilst beautiful, doesn't... More

We stayed there for 3days. The hotel staff are so friendly, the villa that we stayed is not the sea front but We liked it because its clean. We took the snorkelling package full board, so food are included. Food are awesome. I'll recommend this hotel to my friends! 👍🏼

We had a very pleasant stay in this resort. It has all you can expect from a place like this: decent, clean houses, beautiful beach, coral reef. The food was good, staff was friendly. We had a hill-view house which turned out to be really cool - you can watch monkeys, squirrels and other animals just in front of you.... More
