More about Alunan Resort

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.

Alunan is a beautiful resort, nicely secluded from the rest of the island. The staff are super friendly and accommodating and recreational tours and facilities (such as kayaks and the catamaran can all be hired out for a reasonable fee). However snorkel hire is free :). The resort is an eco friendly resort providing reusable metal water bottles free off charge, with refillable water stations located all over the resort (they also use metal straws instead of plastic). Wifi is unstable but that seems to be the trend all over the Perhentian Islands. The room was beautiful and clean, and snorkelling in the Perhentian islands was amazing (we joined the tours run by Alunan). We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and definitely recommend it to family and friends :).

Amazing Holiday”

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Alunan. This is truly a special place. accommodation and facilities were exceptional. We really enjoyed the private deck above our room. The excursions were organised and guided in a professional manner. We managed to swim with turtles and sharks and really enjoyed the excursions. The food at Alunan was amazing. Much better quality and tastier when compared to other resorts on Perhentian Island. The were friendly and extremely courteous . Big thank you to Yana, Mun, Deewan, Abe and especially Nur (we loved his icecream!). Professional, helpuful and always willing to assist with a smile. We managed to tour the Perhentian Islands as Mun was always willing to take us around. Loved all the beaches on the islands. Crystal clear waters, fish in abundance and just natural untouched beauty. This is a special place. We will definitely be back.

Best resort in Perhentian”

Alunan is an eco resort in Perhentian offering a peaceful location, as compared to the busier Long Beach. The marine park has much healthier corals than Long Beach area, and hence lots of corals near its beach. Families with young children should take his into consideration. There are some reef sharks just close to the beach and you may spot them if you get lucky. We are a family with older children who divers. This resort has no dive center but the partnering dive center is excellent. If you stay here do participate in their coral adoption project and if you like, witness the coral planting at the site too. The marine biologists provide good briefings on their coral project. Food is surprisingly very good, with the western menu better than local menu. Apparently they have a new chef here which probably explains some complaints on food quality in the older reviews. Prices are reasonable for hotel. Bring your own snacks as there is no place to get them close to resort. As we dived, we did not participate in their snorkel excursions, but they look well organised. Lastly the staff are very helpful. Everyone including the waiters, concierge and reception were all friendly and always greeting us with smiling faces. You can take water taxis to other beaches from Alunan at same rate as public water taxis.

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.

Worth coming back! 👍🏼 ”

Booked the same resort upon recommendation by a friend. Well worth the price and holiday experience. Everything was right on the dot the moment we arrived at the pontoon. Staff was polite and courteous. After a long overnight drive from KL, we managed to check-in earlier to our room and had a restful sleep before exploring the resort and the activities. Food was surprisingly good on an island. I like the fact that Alunan is located at a less crowded area of Perhentian, which gives the resort a more private and secluded feel. Here are my top three reasons to come back here: 1. Great hospitality and customer service 2. Clean and well maintained rooms 3. Eco-friendly resort (no single use plastic and their effort in coral rehabilitation and conservation)

We had a terrific stay 2-night stay at Alunan! The room was spacious and very comfortable, and the upstairs patio was a really great place to chill and watch a sunset. The food was amazing, albeit a bit pricy, but certainly not lacking in flavor... The best we had on our 10 day Malaysian trip! The staff was very helpful and accommodating, going out of their way to make sure our stay was relaxing and the best possible. It was a special place to chill out and enjoy the Perhentian Islands!

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???

What a great vacation resort! They have unique, modern rooms with a rooftop balcony overlooking the sea and a hammock for perfect morning or evening relaxation. The staffs are very welcoming, friendly and helpful too. We chose their Best of Perhentian excursion that consists of half-day snorkelling trip at 3 different spots and ends up with a sumptuous BBQ on Rawa Island. Kids love their education-packed Alunan Coral Project. This is definitely a place you'd like to spend your holiday again.

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!

Alunan Resort offers the best hospitality. Smooth check in, in house service, accommodation was A one, and lots of activities offered here. I love the way their staffs interact with guests. They are so friendly, professional & heart warming. This resort located at the exclusive part of Perhentian Kecil. A bit far from others, thats the good part is. I love the surrounding. We just can do snorkelling down at the resort’s beach. The water is so clear you can see coral reef with your bare eyes. Resort also offers snorkelling gears for rental, have sailing and kayaking to us to try. Me & my friend have the opportunity to learn about coral reef & adopt one each. I named mine Matcha!

Nice location and excellent service!”

Eco friendly resort away from the main touristic spots with beautiful views and surroundings. Villas are well arranged and offer all the comfort needed. The food was very good and the staff very efficient and nice. We booked excursions from them and also learnt how to grow coral from their coral farm project and even participated (my favourite memory from Alunan Resort)! They can arrange diving and snorkelling and you can walk from there to the other parts of the island. Not facing sunset but beautiful colours above the jungle. Eas Sad that another resort is being built next to them in a completely different style (it has apparently been in progress for many years and they are supposed to open this year or next … but it did not seem quite there when we were there early July) Highly recommend Alunan to nature lovers and families!

Luxurious stay and excellent service”

Had a wonderful stay at Alunan Resort for 3 days 2 nights. Were welcomed by the super friendly staffs, they were very helpful to manage our baggage right from the office to the jetty and up to our room. Despite having to climb uphill to get to our room, otherwise the view from the top worth every step. Room is spacious and beds are beautifully decorated as we requested for a simple birthday deco with no extra charges. Cleanliness standard is excellent. Our most favourite spot is the private rooftop balcony with hammock where we both chilled while enjoying the breathtaking seaview. Food was great, only breakfast included in my reservation but it’s not a big deal because we can watertaxi which took about 3-4 mins to the nearest fisherman village for more variety of food. Loved the effort in focusing on the coral planting and preserving the nature. Peaceful private beach, quite rocky for a swim but filled with magnificent corals which you can enjoy snorkelling just around the area. All in all, kudos to Alunan team for the great hospitality. Each staff greeted us with a genuine smile and were very attentive to make sure we are well-accomodated throughout our stay. Very secluded exclusive resort, recommended to those who seek for a serene escape. Overall an amazing experience!

Mixed feelings”

view, staff and clean

I have read a lot of reviews about different places including Alunan resort. In general, I am happy with the stay. We did snorkelling (arranged easily at the reception). We saw turtles and baby sharks and it was amazing. In general, it was one of the best snorkelling trips I have had. The rooms were clean and the hotel restaurant is above expectations. Moreover, the staff is very friendly and helpful. However, there were some things I wished I knew: 1. The amazingly gorgeous private beach is a rocky one so you cannot really swim there. 2. Our room was spacious, clean and nice looking. We were 3 so we had triple room. I appreciated a lot that we were allowed to check in early after taking an overnight bus from Singapore which was 14 hours journey. The hotel looks like on the photos and the rooftop is a great idea. Hamock is perfect and the roof is an excellent place to chill. Everything was ok but then we discovered that having a rooftop terrace means that we cannot open the curtains in our room as if we do we will see somebody's else terrace plus people staying there. 3. Sleeping quality was not the best. I am not sure if were unlucky as there was somebody leaving in the middle of the night packing for 3 hours and constantly walking up and down the stairs or it is usual practice. Basically, all 3 of us were constantly awake from 3 am onwards by some kind of noise that was man made. 4. Price / quality ratio was not so great. I would recommend this place for couples as they can be very happy without being disturbed. The place is children unfriendly (no facilities / a lot of stairs / rocky beach).

Excellent friendly staff and idyllic location”

Alunan is an oasis away from the rest of the island and the world. There are beautiful views from every room. The resort is small (20 rooms) and isolated from other parts of the island but this did not detract from our experience in any way. If the party atmosphere in Long Beach is your thing, it is an hour away by foot or 10 minutes by water taxi - and you can still return to the tranquility and friendliness of Alunan. They have a capable nurse and staff who were able to assist us with a bad case of dehydration. They have a nice restaurant with Malaysian and western dishes (breakfast is particularly good - the French toast is excellent!) and also organize activities for all ages. Private water taxis can also ferry you anywhere else near the resort in a matter of minutes, unless your dive shop can provide that service to you for free. Thank you, thank you, thank you Alunan for the vacation of a lifetime!

Short Getaway to Heaven!”

Friendliness, modern architecture, cleanliness

It was a short getaway with friends, but we definitely left Alunan with good memories! The staff at the Resort were really friendly and would attend to your needs wherever possible. Food was really good and the rooms were amazing. Definitely looking forward to my next getaway at Alunan! The management should consider buying over the abandoned resort by the side to expand the Resort!

It was the second time we booked a room at Alunan resort. We really enjoyed our stay the first time two years ago but we enjoyed it even more this time. The staff, always smiling and very helpful. I would first thank them for their kindness. Breakfast was delicious and lunch and diner too even if there were more expensive than other restaurants in Long Beach (justifies by the quality of the food). In two years, I’ve seen a lot of improvement : spots to collect water and reusable bottle are provided, soap and shampoo dispenser are also provided instead of giving us samples to avoid plastic waste. The only negative point I would find is that the hotel is far from the main attractions which are in Long Beach. Their taxi boat service is also more expensive than the other spot, sometimes twice the price. Otherwise, I would 100% recommend Alunan resort!

Hi Cindy, merci for choosing to stay with us again :) Happy to hear that you have enjoyed your vacation even more this time around and thank you for noticing our efforts to reduce single use plastic. Please take note that we do not provide water taxi service. We will call one of the third party water taxi operators should you wish to use their service. Their rates are standard across the islands and a copy of their rates are posted at our Reception so that you have the information before using their water taxi service. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our home again soon. Warm wishes The Alunan Team

Secluded but staff are super helpful”

Even the location is quite secluded from happening area, the staffs are very helpful. the breakfast portion is more than enough, the dinner that we had was value for money where the portion is generous, expect the price on the high side. My friends love Alunan Resort and Mr Nur that serves us dinner is very attentive and kind and fulfill all our dinner request. Thank you very much.
