Perfect place to stay,if you want to completely relax and get away from it all. Superb restaurant too; varied menu and very reasonable prices. We especially loved the troupe of Dusky Leaf monkeys who used to sit outside our window,every morning. Amazing snorkelling too! And we loved the staff!

Well I contacted the person in charge in FB saying that the room ranging from RM 100 to 150, and the price was different due to the distance from the beach to the chalet. All the rooms were newly renovated and come with 2 queen-size beds, attached bathroom and air conditional. That's why we picked the room of RM100 because... More

The room itself its ok. Charming chalets, have to be honest... it's not that comfy but worth for the price. I recommend! You can often see a monkey's family crossing your way or on the top of the trees :) Beach is truly beautiful! Friendly and helpful staff!

Watercolours Resort is truly unforgettable. Never have I stayed in such a place, and probably never will again. The dank rooms will truly tickle your senses. The romantic lighting sets the mood, illuminating the room like a single burning candle (but truly, the room looks best in the dark). Then there's that haunting scent. I thought at first it was...

Good enough for simple accommodations for a diving trip. Staff was exceptionally friendly, rooms were adequate, service was timely, etc. All the other nearby resorts are much more expensive, and probably have better food and accommodations but I didn't want to spend that much money. I believe there are cheaper accommodations on Long Beach but there is a lot of... More

We spend 3 nights here because there was no room anywhere else. Book in advance before coming to the island. Coackroach in the bathroom. The floor was always very wet, open hole in the floor. The sheets were dirty. Very basic. Comfy bed, good food, not always good service. Not always Wifi. Sofia was the greatest employee.

Have been visiting this resort since the 90's, it was one of the best budget resort in the whole of Perhentian, strategically located with stunning views and easy accessible to Teluk Pauh area. The dive centre still provides excellent services and diving with them is a pleasure. However, the rooms really in dire need of restoration, no upkeeping work done... More
