Good but was better before

Food, beach,
High standard vs other hotels on the beach but very expensive and not sure it is a good value for your money when you compare it with other hotel of this quality

Bubu is probably the best place on Perhentian

Rooms are very comfortable. Good location.
BuBu is probably the best place to stay on Perhentian. The hotel is very comfortable. The free cocktails for happy hour are great. Food is reasonably good but we had to wait over an hour one evening for our meals. Breakfast is good but don't expect it to be fully operational until at least 15 minutes after the advertised start time

most expensive + luxury + modern

Free evening drinks + excellent service + comfortable room
1. Land transfer (RM120) and boat transfer (RM160) well arranged by Mr. Saiful & Ms. Esther despite last minute request and payment made. Very understanding to allow quick dropby for guest to shop for localties/souvenirs. 2. Upon arrival at Resort around 11.30am, led by resort staff to Santai Restaurant for generous welcome drink (fresh fruit juice in full wine glass) while receptionist was checking us in (we dont have to wait/stand at counter). And by 12noon, room was available & we were allowed to enter early at no additional cost! Very flexible management! 3. Each guest has FREE 2 glasses evening drinks everyday 5-6pm, generously without restriction on menu i.e cocktails, mocktails, fresh fruit juices, beer except wine. Just too bad no re-stock of fresh coconut during our stay. And would be more sincere if no timeframe restriction. 4. Excellent service frm kitchen on fulfilling request for room service (meal order of seafood platter for 2 pax) around 10pm despite kitchen was closing. It was our 1st night & we didnt expect entire island's cafes & restaurants in total darkness by 10pm (Night is still young for city people like us)! My gratitude extends to each staff who prepared the dinner for us, saved us from hunger! TQ & the meal was really impressive & tasty! 5. Room is spacious and well maintained except for sandy floor which is understandable (not easy to be sand free when the beach is just in front) 6. Strategically located at far end of Long Beach where right in front the beachfront resort, many fishes visible, great for snorkeling. Just worried that the ongoing construction next to the resort (seems like extension of the resort) will contaminate the sea water and kill all fishes (the beach sand in front of resort already polluted) 7. Breakfast was included every morning and the choices were limited, just enough to keep you fed. They do have nice croissant, scrambled egg, fried kuey teow. Overall, healthy breakfast, i would say.

We have arrived in paradise.

The location and views of the tropical surrounds. The amazing food at the restaurant. The excellent ever helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble.
Awesome, from the moment of our arrival the whole experience met our expectations. Our room with the an ocean vista was lovely. The soft white sand leading to the crystal clear waters with marine life was so good. The water is unbelievably warm too, swimming is just amazing and being able to snorkel down right in front of the resort and see fish was a lovely experience. Two free cocktails for each guest every night was an added unexpected bonus. When I was in need of some medication which I needed prior to flying home the staff went above and beyond and supplied some of their own, which worked, thank you so much. We hope to return some day for another stay.

Nive resort on great location

Great location, very nice staff, good activities

Convenient and full guide to go to the resort

Fully guided tour from airport to the resort, nice restaurant environment and Quiet place
Everything was good including the services, the cleanliness but the room are quite out of my expectation. The charges hits RM2k for 3 night stay deluxe room in perhentian island so I expected more than just a room that just fit a double king bed and a small wardrobe.

Fantastic place with amazing staff!

Staff, Beach & Food
We had a fantastic stay at Bubu Resort. The rooms were nice but nothing fancy. The staff was absolutely great! Very helpful and accomodating. It is probably the best quality service I have had to experience in all my Asian travels! The food is absolutely great aswell. It is probably the most expensive restaurant on the island but the prices are well deserved. One thing though: please change playlists fro mtiem to time :) We really had an amazing time and can't wait to go back!
