“Beach Side Chalet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Fatimah Chalet is one of bunch of budget chalets on the beach and located right on the beach at the start of the strip of beach cafes on Coral Bay. Peaceful environment with nice sea view wooden hut.

The interiors are not quite as polished as a resort or a hotel, but that seems to be the standard of kind of place to stay in Perhentian Kecil. Chalets are clean, provided with a mosquito net and 24hours electric supply. Staffs are very friendly and helpful and the restaurant isn't too bad either.

Unfortunately, this chalet only accepts walk-in travellers to check in. No online or phone reservation can be made, except for reservation which includes together in a snorkelling package at a very reasonable price. This is one of recommended options for backpackers and solo travellers.

Room Tip: We'd stayed in Room F1 and Room 1, close to the beach and yet, so peaceful.

Fatimah Chalet is a walk In option on Coral Beach. The Garden Area is very Nice & the Chalets look ok from the outside.

It was nice to sit on the porch & enjoy the lovely garden area - its a great shame they don't take the same pride in the rooms !!

I think because The Perhentians are such a great destination & very popular this allows most places on the islands to have very poor standards as there is little competition.

The Room itself seemed dirty but fair price 60 ringit until we went to sleep, The smell from the pillows was discusting & that's coming from a heavy smoker with little sense of smell !!

There was lots of rubbish & dirty toilet paper down the side of the bed - it was a very uncomfortable nights sleep & would not stay there again.

Room Tip: If you check that the room is clean - then it might be a good cheap option for you !!

I stayed there two nights only because they have a rule that you pay far more for the first if you only stay one night. The price is quite low, but the quality, well... The rat which returned every night through a hole under the bed (because the owners didn't bother to put a carpet over the whole floor) was quite happy, a few cockroaches also. Ah, and don't forget that there has recently been built a disco about 20 meters away, playing loud music until 2-3 AM - on some nights for now, because it's just starting. To some up - you might get lucky, but I wouldn't bet again!

This 'chalet' was a hut with 4 walls and a bed with a hole in the wall for a shower.
The price was cheap so hard to expect more for your money. All the same.. if you like electricity between 7am-7pm stay elsewhere.
