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.

A 4-nights review

Excellent location, helpful English-speaking staff
The resort is really old, rooms, equipment and furniture is really dated, but...I guess it's one of the best on this Island and even the smallest one (not talking about the Shangri-la). The beach itself is amazing, in a bay, with 2 coral reefs on both sides for snorkeling from the beach. It was low season (Oct 7-11), the beach wasn't taken care of, but the water itself and the silurroundings made it up to us for all the flaws. We saw turtles and a small shark while snorkeling from the beach. Breakfast wad limited, pool was dirty (but thankfully the weather was excellent), wifi signal is only in hall, first line of houses closer to the reception and covers the narrow stripe of the beach. Hot/cold water supply and electricity 24/7 Try to awoid Fri. and Sat., too many locals

Stunning beach, but terrible resort.

Filthy rooms, very poor service, needs management change
The beach here is superb. But that's it. Very bad resort, very poor service, and dirty rooms. No management presence at all. It's almost a joke how poorly managed the place is. They have a tennis court and badminton court with no net, no rackets and no supplies. You get the idea. It's also severely overpriced because of the demand for the beach. Come with very low expectations for the price.

Fantastic location, awful rooms

The Perhentian Island Resort is probably in one of the best locations on the island. Unfortunately there is very little competition due to lack of space on the islands. The 'deluxe' room we stayed in was awful. Looks like it hasn't been renovated since the 70s and holes patched up with toilet paper, mouldy bathroom, you get the idea. In any other location it would have been ran out of business. The sun loungers are also largely broken. They just don't seem to want or need to make an effort.

Great location but old and uncomfortable rooms

Location, location and location
The biggest (and perhaps only) asset of this resort is the location: right next to the most beautiful beach of the island with great spots for snorkelling. It also gives access to the best jungle trekking. Beside that, the rooms are old and a bit dirty. Food is below average. Considering that I paid around 120USD per night for a front beach bungalow it is def over priced.

Great location, reasonable conditions

It's right next to the nicest beach on the island. Conditions are pretty decent. Food was very bad compared to other places on the island.
Relaxing, quiet. I would stay at the Coral View for the better value and eat at the Barat. The beach is the best though.

Worst experience in my life

Beach and sea view
First of all, the room is in terrible condition that seems no maintenance was took before. The whole room is lighten with only one side table light at night. Floor is dusty. The wooden wall or partition of the room is rotten. Secondly, foods in the breakfast and lunch buffet is limited and extremely simple and repeats everyday, totally not worth the value! Lastly but nothing more surprise compare to the earlier, the swimming pool is dirty!

Correct hotel for the money

Location, beach, Perhentian island
Hotel is well located on a very nice beach. Keeping into consideration this hotel is located on a remote beach, its maintenance is not so easy. Bathrooms are getting older and need some maintenance. This hotel is not serving any alcohol drinks.

Fantastic view but don't expect food

The location cannot be more perfect, the staff were so nice in every requests and the room condition was good.
It was a perfect holiday! The room condition was better (cos I saw so many review full of complaning). The electricity was good and warm shower okay. They provides power sockets with multinational standards. Tea, coffee, water pot. Towels everyday. Aircon was perfect and even I had a fan. The bed was nice. I can recommend this hotel to everyone who can accept the pooooooooor food... I strongly advise to bring your own food or go to the next door for your dinner. There's nothing to eat in this restaurant. I prepared my own drinking water, friits and snacks, instant noodles... I perfectly satisfied with the room condition and the location. was so nice to be there:-)
