About Perhentian Island Resort


This verdant beach resort, situated on unspoiled shoreline, is the ideal natural paradise for holidays. Guests will be surrounded by a myriad of interesting activities such as snorkeling, jungle treks, and migratory bird watching. The closest jungle trail is just 100-meters from the resort, allowing guests to experience an amazing tropical oasis with ease. Being on an island, guests should explore the various dive sites, and as the resort lies within the National Marine Park of Malaysia, the biodiversity is incredible. Guests can also indulge in beach and water sports and relax with a meal at either of the on-site restuarants. The Perhentian Island Resort is the perfect location for travelers that want a unique holiday location and pristine natural surroundings.

Ok, but ...
Tries to imitate large quality resorts, doesn't make it, more like a cabin grounds. Internet so slow it's non-existant, asked to borrow a adapter, no don't have, can buy one from their store. (stayed at D2 before this & lent one to use in the lounge even after I checked out & waited for my flight. Cabins are just that, basic ( good air con ) door hits against WC on opening, 4 cabins in a conjoined group, basic workmanship in finishes. Some good friendly staff, they may need more training.

Great location
It's the only hotel on the island where the own a large chunk of land. So the beach is very private and clean. Great place to see turtles because they come to that beach to eat (see grass). Just need swim and snorkel and the turtles are there! The management is not very good. Abit disorganised and staff lack training abit. Also the food (mainly the breakfast and evening buffet) is not nice....

almost good
rooms lack basic furniture to hang towels ( wall hangers/ hooks ). only one pillow per bed; many bytes from unknown source: room, beach or sea?? hope no bugs in the room like bed bugs, but cannot be sure. and the worse is the food in general and the breakfast.... not a nice experience to eat there. the good point though is the newly refurbished rooms, excellent beach, nice staff, decent cleaning though we found left overs in bed side table drawer from previous guests. Given the relatively high price, it can't get more than 6,5-7 as a mark. however, it was still a pleasant experience ( as we had food elsewhere and much cheaper )

Awesome location
Amazing beach with OK accommodation for the money. Lacks design and appreciation of the surroundings. Too much hard standing and not enough nature around the rooms. Food OK but overcooked and not fresh. Facilities are excellent. Staff friendly. They gave me the wrong room with no alternative.

PIR has a beautiful beach with friendly staff. We enjoyed our 3D2N stay and even manage to see turtles. However, food needs improvement.
