Tried the restaurant after reading lots of good reviews here on TripAdvisor. But that was really a disapointment. The food is FAR from fine dining. Is is boring and average and the service is really bad. Take a taxi-boat to Impiani at Perhentian Kecil instead (takes 5 min.) and eat at their restaurant. It is SO much better!

We stayed at the Tuna Bay Island Resort in July for 3 nights in a standard chalet. The room was clean and basic, but fine. If I had my time again I would definitely without a doubt stay in a beach front chalet, they looked amazing. The hotel provided prompt responses to emails and the check in process was easy.... More

After reading reviews we choose between Tuna or Abdulls. We are happy that we did the right choice. The service, standard and breakfast was very good if u keep in mind the resort is situated on this kind of island. They have plenty of staff doing things like, cleaning the garden and beach, or serving customers at the reception. Many... More

Basic but spacious rooms, probably most "luxurious" rooms on the island. Nice beach and sea views from veranda (sea view rooms) with hot shower and aircon. Good breakfast, friedly staff. Little house reef just outside. Restaurant is good but we preferred Cocohut restaurant with really good fresh fish. Also try NIA cafe for a quick lunch (really good noodle soup).... More

Our holiday at Tuna Bay Resort was great!. The hut was modern and clean with warm water and AC. Breakfast was good. We tried other beaches on the island but at Tuna Bay was the best snorchling. There are 3 other restaurants on the same beach so you have some options for dining.

My partner and I visited the Perhentians on a last minute trip in May last year and we were really happy with the Tuna Bay resort. The staff were really friendly and accomodating. We were given a refreshing drink on arrival and the communal space in the restaurant/ bar is a great shade from the heat and serves delicious Mango... More

We visited Tuna Bay after reading the reviews on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint! We have arranged for the a land and sea transfer to the island and it was on time and the staff were very helpful in carrying our luggage to the boat. The boat trip took 45 minutes and we arrived at the resort and check... More

Tuna Bay is one of the resorts on Perhentians and nothing special. Staff in restaurant was inadequate and the service was poor. But what'd expect after a 14 hour workingday.... Location is beautiful but so is every location on Perhentians. The small attached rooms are clean but very simple. The rooms are extremely noisy. Rooms with direct sea view are... More

I was expecting a more luxurious establishment, but on the whole my experience was pretty average. Rooms were clean, but basic - however, our "chalet" (small room with a small wooden deck attached) smelled quite moldy the whole time. Although the hotel is right on the beach, the beach itself is so-so, and all the beach chairs are claimed by... More
