This is my home far away from home. I somehow loose the count how many times I went for Perhentians but I like to return as this is the place where I feel relaxed, with peace and I enjoy the simple life away from hustle and bustle of the busy world. I believe I already put 3 or 4 reviews... More

The bungalows are very simple and hardly furnished. Though in comparison to other places, it's clean, very affordable and the restaurant is amazing! I would say you will have the better kind of deal here. We had a great stay and it's straight at the beach (swimming is better at the beach like 100m walk)

We spent at mama's 2 nights. It was very uncomplicated and easy. the manager, also very relaxed and helpful. We had a fan ventilated room, and we were w little bit afraid that it will not be enough for the heat, but it was perfectly fine:-)

Although we didn't stay at Mama's Place, We had a few meals at the restaurant. The hot meals were delicious. The menu is extensive too. Price was reasonable, RM7-8 for noodles. However, hot drinks were undrinkable! The waiters are not the friendliest nor able to speak English well, which made ordering not the easiest of tasks. I hope the management... More

I just returned from a trip here, it was a great place to stay. Good stuff: Very clean, very cosy place. Nice staff, tasty food at reasonable price. Restaurant is a well sheltered building, important for rainy days! Good location, near to Tuna Bay and Coral View. Malaysia telco has good coverage here. Data coverage is available but at slow...

This was my 8th time here. I usualy come here by default almost every year as I found this place the most relaxing, chilled and I simply love the family and people that runs Mama's place. Place and people who runs are laid back, but that is majority of Malaysian I meet in this part of Malaysia (Terranganu and Kelantan).... More

Came to try the seafood from another beach. Everything looked good but they forgot to remove the cartilage (backbone) from the squid before they cooked and served it. Water taxis don't like coming to this beach at low tide as the water is very shallow and they have a long walk in pushing the boat.

The manager was disinterested and indifferent. He knows nothing about hospitality and customerservice. Bookings went wrong (not only for us) and was just plain rude. The accommodation is basic but worth the money.

Due to switch of travel plans, we called mama's place to see if they had room available on the Perhentians. Luckily for us they did! After booking 4 nights, we extended by another 4. We booked a garden view chalet, which overlooks the forest and garden. Each chalet has a nice balcony. On the inside the chalets are basic, but... More

Mama's Place is a laid back resort in Pulau Perhentian Besar. We have done our reservation thru one of the owners, Jimmy, and he was very helpful and even arranged our transpo from the airport to the resort - Taxi and speed boat. They have quite a number of chalets and we took the one with aircondition and sea-facing. The... More
