Before I launch into a list of cons, I will admit that the island and setting are everything that you would want from a tropical island: soft white sandy beach, clear blue warm water, backdrop of interesting jungle to be explored or not. However, if you don't like bats, you will hate this place. Sadly, the sound of the bats... More

Pulau besar is a hidden jewel. My family and parents stayed at Aseania at the end of May and early June just before the start of Ramadhan. We were initially considering done resorts in Pulau Tioman, but the boat ride was 2 hours compared to a quick 30min ride to Pulau Besar. What attracted me was the long white sandy... More

We already went with minimal expectations as we've stayed in awesome places around besar, including rawa, sibu & tioman. The resort staff were excellent, the huts are abit old, not the cleanest sheets, but we had a pleasant stay nonetheless. The food was surprisingly decent. The saturday night BBQ had the best satay. The beach was clean, the waters were... More

Buying of the tickets and the whole confusing situation was made easy thanks to the escort from the resort who gathered us and guided us through the whole ticketing process. I was amazed at how clean and clear the seawater was when arrived at the beach. Welcomed with a drink and the check in process was quick and easy. I... More

Had a wonderful time at the beach. We were not able to do some other activities though cause we enjoyed the beach and pool. The barbeque dinner is nice. They have prawns, mutton, fish and satay. We also enjoyed the breakfast. They served toast, cereals, noodles, sausage, eggs and fruits

Overall good experience, good food and friendly staff. just that poor water supply & beware on swamp of mosquitoes. Pleasant place to relax yourself, not to expect so much on the corals that is scattered and few.

I was travelling with my family and we had a wonderful time at the resort. The island was wonderful, white sandy beach and clear turquoise water. The staff was helpful and friendly and made the stay very enjoyable. The only setback is the sandflies by the beach. Overall it was wonderful stay.
