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.

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.

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

Great beach and good hotel
The beach was great but very crowded, esecially between 10 and 12 am, when many boats for snorkeling arrived. The hotel was quite good.

Great Location..
The Perhention Island Resort is located in a beautiful location, it has perfect blue waters and merina life for snorkelling and driving. It's also great for just sunbaking on the beach. The resort itself on the other hand does not have much to offer, renovations have started and leftover toilets and bathtubs are just laying around the resort. The food is awful it's all mostly traditional Malaysian food and the buffet food was always cold lukewarm at the best (don't eat the buffet you will get sick). There are no activities other than snorkelling, scuba diving and canoeing. Because the resort is Malay run they also offer no alcohol it is an alcohol free resort. The Spa is only for Females which was also inconvenient, men can only get a massage from some guy outside in the heat. So if you want a beautiful location with hardly anything to do (it's like a rehabilitation resort) then this is the place for you!!

Good Location for snorkling
The hotel location is very good for snorkeling. Hotel also operate few activities from their Sports Center. The hotel has a jungle tracking tour too. There are few good restaurants available on left side of the hotel (after crossing the bridge)
