    The location is a bit far from most of those attraction places. You need to take a taxi boat (which will incurred extra charges) or walk for 45 mins from the resort . Overall it's a good stay. Beautiful resort with a very nice view and friendly staffs. This is a good option if you want some private and quiet moment in an island.

    Awesome experience in perhentian island”

    This is the best hotel I have ever experienced. Nice view from outside with a glass wall for each room and a private outdoor platform. The indoor facilities are modern and beautiful. You can stay in your house for the whole afternoon as the sun is so big. In the morning you can try snorkeling just beyond the hotel with free facilities from hotel. Drinking at the bar is kind of an unforgettable experience. Every room is designed individualizing so that each room can enjoy the ocean view. I will definitely come again when I visit perhentian island.

    The room was nice and clean, great environment around the resort, the staffs are helpful and providing good services. The café offers wide varieties of menu and the complimentary breakfast was great too. Overall was good except the location if you d' like to swim there. The beach is not good for swimming as there are many dead corals that might hurt your foot.

    Hi Yoe, thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. Pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our rom, location, staff hospitality and food offerings at our Bayu Restaurant. Our beach is a snorkeling beach and we do not advise guests stepping on any of the corals as there are new baby corals growing in between the rocks. So it is best to find a sandy patch and swim out to snorkel to protect our fragile eco system. We have an in-house marine biologist who would be happy to share with you regarding our coral conservation and coral nursery project and we hope you had the opportunity to meet her. If you prefer a beach with sandy bottom for swimming without any corals or fish, we would be happy to call for a water taxi to take you to a swimming beach. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team

    Wonderful holiday ”

    Started off with a three night stay but decided to cancel the next two nights trip to Taman Negara and to stay on for those extra two nights. Lovely location. Great service. Some ongoing building works but wasn’t too disruptive. Free water taxi implies it’s a free service. But it’s not, only free to one location. This was a surprise to then see it appear on the bill. Otherwise all good. Would have liked to have seen a change in menu across the days. I’d definitely return.

    Beautiful Resort with Excellent Staff and Service”

    The resort has a beautiful vertical setting, where each of the rooms has an upper balcony with the ocean view. The food is great here. However, the staff members are the best part about this resort, who are extremely warm and friendly, and provide excellent service. The resort is in an isolated place away from the Long Beach, which I loved because I wanted a proper getaway vacation. However, if you are someone who wants to be around a happening spot, you can easily go to the Long Beach or Coral Bay by a 10-min boat ride, or through the jungle trek (not recommended at night), if you are feeling adventurous.

    Alunan stands fairly isolated compared to other resorts on the small island (especially on Long Beach) which was especially conducive to our wonderful, relaxing, and peaceful vacation. The rooms are modern and luxurious and the staff were very helpful in recommending and planning activities. Water taxis are very convenient and affordable if you want to eat at other parts of the island but prices at the hotel restaurant are very reasonable. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Perhentian Islands and Alunan played a big role in that.

    Great for an eco, relaxed stay”

    There is a lot that Alunan does really well. They really care about their environment and have a marine biologist as part of their staff who is helping with their coral growth project. It’s also great that you can get involved in this if you wish! There are other nice touches like reusable water bottles and metal straws - these make a huge difference to plastic usage and I was impressed! The rooms are fantastic and have great views and your own private balcony. The standard of the rooms felt very premium for the island. It was great that they have a private beach and some fantastic coral right on your doorstep. These are real draws to the resort. Also the activities they have are generally more expensive than other places on the island, but the staff were a lot more helpful on them - so worth the extra money. Will note that it is a little secluded there. This was great for us, but if you want to be near long beach, you may be better off elsewhere. Would come again!

    Great resort”

    Probably the best resort hotel in the perhentian islands. We had room 2 with a lovely view from the roof terrace. Rain and thunder kept us awake several nights as did squeaking birds... But all added to the atmosphere of the place. There is a rather unnatractive resort being built right next door unfortunately and some building noise was evident but not really noisy. Unfortunately the design of the new resort is in compete contrast to Alunan and looks pretty awful to be honest. A pity to spoil the beach and views with the new hotel. Who gave them planning permission???

    Stuff are very friendly and welcoming, room with great view, food are great from plating to taste but slightly pricey, location is about 10-15 min boat ride to Long Beach. Hotel offer pretty good snorkeling package, I would say quite pricey compare to others offer in Long Beach but with their excellent service I would gladly pay for it. Overall I would say is a great place to relax and escape from the noise.
