Abdul's Chalet has long tradition on Perhentian Besar. He started small with only some chalets and improved over the years his chalets from the outside and outside as well as offers larger food menu and boat shuttle. This of cause is known by many people and Adul's is therefore mostly fully booked. We were lucky to get two chalets for... More

Let me start by saying the island itself is beautiful! No roads so it's only possible to get around by boat which is a major plus (quiet). Abdul's was okay, wasn't expecting much anyway as I heard that the accomodation there wasn't great value. Some of the staff were excellent, others not. It was hard to get things seen to... More

First of all i would like to say that i don't agree with many reviews that the service is poor. Actually it was better than i expected. Staff is young but that doesn't mean they don't do their job. Of course they don't act like personnel in high end restaurants but they are all helpful and efficient if you ask... More

We have been travelling around both Asia and Europe, sun bathed in a thousand beaches, especially the beaches in Spain and Canary Islands. But we have to say, Pulau Perhentian and Abdul Chalet itself is truly a gem. Warm water temperature of a big natural swimming pool just at you door step, really! Not just a beach, but it is... More

TA reviews certainly influenced me to book a stay at Abdul's, but 1 common issue I read from the reviews are the staff's attitude. I think this is the first time I have encountered reservation staff that is very rude and unprofessional. I contacted the staff to book a room and ask about options they have. They answered quite promptly... More

The place isn’t particularly bad, but I need to rate it down as we would have never staid there had the hotel correctly communicated the total cost of the stay at the time of reservation. Basically, we were quoted a price over email of RM 1150 for 3 nights. At check-out, the receptionist told us they made a mistake and... More

The best budget beach chalet on Perhentian Besar. Clean and quiet room with air conditioner and fan, terrace with seating, a small fridge, towels and toiletry supplies and beautiful views from the balcony.

To arrive at the island, there was a boat leaving from Kuala Besut 3 times a day. The ride takes abou an hour. We had a garden chalet. Accomodation is very basic. The room is small. Design of the bathroom is from the 80ies and whenever you take a shower, you flood all the room. Amenities are not provided. Beds... More

Abdul chalet locates in the main beach on the Besar, just left side from pier. In the first time I thought that it will be noisy, but I was wrong. We were on both islands and walk much, and I sure that Abdul's chalet has the best beach. Because there is some corals, in same time there good entrance in... More
