Located on a quiet, intimate stretch of Petani Beach, Alunan Resort sits on a rocky slope that gently sweeps down to merge with the sparkling azure ocean at its doorstep, enveloped by a stunning backdrop of lush, verdant tropical rainforest. A contemporary boutique resort experience can now be enjoyed in this private hideaway. Inspired by gentle ocean waves, the property is dotted with sparkling boxes framed with black steel, white washed walls, and a broad expanse of glass, creating a magnificent view of terraces cascading down the slope of the hill like a stream of rolling waves. Blessed with all the trappings of a tropical idyll, this contemporary boutique resort is home to 18 intimate, double-story private suites furnished with modern architecture that is exclusive only to Alunan Resort. Covered in floor-to-ceiling glass panels designed to capture majestic views of the ocean and sprawling rainforest, each suite opens up to a private rooftop sun deck on the top floor where a hammock, sun loungers, and a shaded patio awaits. Unique to Alunan Resort, an open-plan lobby and multi-level beachfront sun deck is the perfect setting to view the vastness of the shimmering South China Sea.

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.
Hi Rahimah, terima kasih for staying with us and for your lovely review. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Not really suitable for young children. And if you have small children make sure you get the rooms downstairs, if not you will have to carry your children all the way up hill. Otherwise excellent surrounding and resort.
Hi Jufithri, terima kasih for staying with us. Indeed, our resort is not suitable for young children as stated on our website as well as previous reviews. To ensure that every room has a sea view, our resort is built on a hill with many stairs. We encourage you to read info provided before booking. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Great view ”
Many different choices for breakfast! Loved the peacefulness surrounding the resort. There’s also a balcony in every room where you are able to just chill and do some stargazing. Room was clean and well equipped. Staffs were friendly as well
Hi ZHI, thank you for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! Happy to hear that you have enjoyed your private rooftop balcony, our food offerings and staff's hospitality. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon! Warm wishes The Alunan Team
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.

Great accomondation and service from the staff”
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.
Hi Zachary, thank you for staying with us and for your lovely review. Glad you could extend your stay here. We do not offer free water taxi as these are provided by third party water taxi operators and their price list is displayed at our Reception area. If there was a miscommunication, we apologise. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
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.
Hi Akib, thank you for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! We are happy to hear that we have enjoyed your room, our food offerings and staff's hospitality. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
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.
Hi Priyanka, shukraan jazilaan for staying with us. Happy to hear that you have enjoyed our private beachfront location, rooms, food offerings at our Bayu Restaurant & most importantly our staff's hospitality! It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Worth every penny”
Appreciate if this resort offer full board. Include lunch and dinner. Most people stay at this resort can afford to pay more since everyhing is perfect here. Others, is superb! Suitable for people who likes privacy.
Hi Khoshikin, thank you for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! You have made our day :) Happy to hear that you had a wonderful holiday with us. Thank you for your suggestion on providing full board. Our management will take this into consideration. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon! Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Nice and cozy place to stay
Hi Goh, thank you for staying with us! Pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
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!
Hi Zara, thank you for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! Always a thrill when our guest mentions about our coral project and eco-green initiatives. It is important for us to do our part to protect our marine ecosystem and reduce single use plastic together with our guests' help! Indeed, our resort is for those who enjoy an oasis of serenity :) It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
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???
Hi Caroline, thank you for staying with us and for calling us the best resort in Perhentian! Sounds like you had experienced our typical tropical weather where there may be rain but it is for a short while and not the whole day :) Yes the resort next door belongs to a different owner and unfortunately we have no control over their design. We hope they will finish their work soon. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Quiet and relaxing ”
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.
Hi Samantha, thank you for staying with us and for your lovely review. Pleased to hear that you have enjoyed our staff's hospitality and food offerings. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Good choice for relaxation”
Fascinating beach view from room & restaurant. Not so many people. Quiet at night. Got my quality sleep here. Very kind, helpful & friendly staff. Tired climbing the stairs but you can count it as exercise. Good & very tasty food. Beach has many coral. But you can see fish around it. Best for snorkeling maybe.
Hi NUR, terima kasih for staying with us and for your wonderful review. Happy to hear that you had a relaxing holiday with us and have enjoyed our staff's hospitality. Yes, our stair machine is a very good exercise machine to help our guests stay fit and work out a healthy appetite :) Our beach is indeed the best for snorkeling as the corals here provide a breeding ground for fish and therefore we have a wide variety of marine life living and hunting here such as baby sharks, moray eels, colourful reef fish, clown fish like Nemo and many more :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
The location is a lil bit isolated but that is the point of the hotel, far from the noise. I love the breakfast which is abundance and made perfectly for you. The beach is not that nice, but very decent just for a dip. the staffs are amazing and very attentive.
Hi Ahmad, terima kasih for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! Happy to hear that you have enjoyed our location, breakfast and staff's hospitality. Our beach is rather special as it is a snorkeling beach filled with the most amazing marine life. We hope you took the opportunity to snorkel out to meet our underwater residents :) As you cannot have a snorkeling and a swimming beach on the same beach due to its different topography, we would be happy to call for a water taxi to take you to a swimming beach where it is just sandy bottom and no marine life as there are no rocks for them to breed and hide. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Lack of safety precaution especially on handrail due to big gaps and dangerous for kids.”
Room insufficient size of air con..should use atleast 1.5 Hp rather 1hp .. Like me 4 person in 1 room for 1hp aircond not suitable .. For local people should have a special prize for FnB.. Breakfast menu need to improve and to insert more local dishes such as Nasi Dagang,Kerabu.. Buffet breakfast should have rather than ala carte.. Overall my 3d2n staying at Alunan was wonderful and willing to come over next time. Please treats local visitors equally foreigner.. We paid same like them.. Lastly keep it up a good job..
Hi zulkiflee, terima kasih for staying with us and for your feedback. Please take note that all aircon units in all rooms here in Alunan Resort is 1.5 horsepower as we have the biggest rooms on Perhentian Islands.We also provide fans in all rooms to help cool down the rooms quickly As stated on our website, our resort is not suitable for young children as we have many stairs and hence, parental supervision is required at all times for your children. Our Alunan Team consists of Malaysians and other nationalities and we treat all out guests in the same manner just like how we respect and treat one another in our team. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon. Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Wonderful Hotel and Staff”
My family and and I had a wonderful time at the resort though the weather was not ideal but the experience was great! we thoroughly enjoyed and was well served by its friendly staff. Rooms were clean and cozy. I also liked that the resort is built with environmental consideration at a nice location. They also have a good coral replanting program with their own in house marine biologist which many resorts dont. Will come back again when we have the opportunity again.
Hi iskandar, terima kasih for staying with us and for your wonderful feedback! Happy to hear that you have enjoyed your holiday here with us and our staff's hospitality. Yes, we are the only resort in Perhentian who is working with a marine biologist to preserve and protect our coral reefs and we are pleased that you had the opportunity to lend a hand. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon :) Warm wishes The Alunan Team
Excellent and memorable stay”
Private beach for the guests to enjoy with no crowds; excellent hospitality from the staff; sparkling clean and great facilities. Would definitely return if I ever visit Perhentian
Hi Yi, thank you for staying with us. We are delighted to hear that you had a memorable stay and have enjoyed our beachfront location, resort facilities and staff's hospitality. We look forward to welcoming you back soon :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Hi Felicial, thank you for staying with us and for your perfect 10 rating! You have made our day :) It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon! Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
Great place to chill with friends. Helpful and friendly staffs. However, the taste of the food should be improved. As well as the cleanliness of the room (windows facing the sea).
Hi Mohd, thanks for staying with us and for your review. Glad to hear that you have enjoyed our staff hospitality. We understand that food preference is according to personal tastes and majority of our guests have given us positive feedback. In terms of our windows, we do clean them regularly. However, due to our location next to the sea, there will always be sea mist blowing to the resort and leaving some marks on our windows. So it is ongoing process for us :) Warm wishes, The Alunan Team
