The resort has its own beach and little lovely shelter and chairs where I used to lay down for sun and stars.

Mediocre beach getaway ”
Aseania is a good resort for families. Pricey for Malaysian standard, and the food is average. But the rooms are very comfortable. Pulau Besar itself doesn't offer anything much, so you will spend most of your time at the resort. Might be worth spending a bit more for a comfortable space.
We have just arrived back from Aseania, what a fantastic time we had!! The accommodation was quirky, clean and comfortable. The food was good and as much as you can eat. The entertainment was entertaining. The staff were incredibly helpful and the Resort manager made a point every day of checking in with all his guests to make sure all was OK....nice touch!! The boat transfer was efficient and speedy. The beach was in magnificent condition and the sea was beautiful. If you want a nice relaxing weekend without any frills then I completely recommend the Aseania Resort, we will be returning shortly.
Perfect short getaway ”
Spent my weekend in Aseania, was a perfect place to stay away from hustle and bustle. Country chalet room is a bit old but it was clean and tidy, even Astro Tv is provided. I like those facilities by the beach, the water is so clean and shiny. Speedboat schedule is very on time, our trip schedule went well as per our planning. Overall was satisfied, would recommend Aseania to my friends and family.
Kampong Style Homey Beach Resort”
i have stayed for 3 nights in this resort, it has "kampong"/traditional malay village style bungalow. the staff are very friendly and attentive on everything we need. the food is simply awesome (we took the full board package). the beach is good, there is small fishes around, and soft sands, the only backdraw is sandflies, which bite once in a while. beach activities need to rely on next door resort (i.e. d'coconut, mirage), but i heard from few stayer, aseania is the best in the area comparing the 3 resorts. overall, we enjoyed the stay in this hotel, even my wife and daughter already asking to return. i will consider returning for my future trips.
5 Star Service with 3 Star Price ”
Thank you Encik Adam for you kind accommodation during the check in and check out time. It makes me felt home. The resort has its own beach and little lovely shelter and chairs where I used to lay down for sun and stars. Unforgettable trip, thank you to Aseania.
a fancy though simple and cozy resort.”
The staffs are very welcoming and friendly. Their treatment makes me want to stay over again. Miss aseania resort so much!
Good location, Great large rooms, Excellent value”
i stayed here for 2 weeks then came back with my wife for a few days before heading to palau besar. i loved the resort it was very beautiful. friendly staff, great restaurants, and the pool is also really nice and the place is just relaxing. limo service is available on site.
Peace and Solitude”
For less than the cost of staying at a good hotel, Aseania is a haven for those who desire a break from the hectic urban drone of city life. And the beach is right in front!
aseania resort is lovely hotel, nice beach n services is good. between, it's recommended for those who looking for relaxing and quiet place to excape from city. ps: agoda please indicate the charges for those water activities and also extra charge if the not included lunch or dinner. agoda: please give more correct information for boat transfer contact person and also please indicate correctly if boat transfer only includes one way!
the hotel was ok considering that besar is a small island and there are only 3 hotels there (aseania was the best one) bungalows are not for couple with more than 1 child since they are too small. the food was not too good; we had to go early to have something reasonable; the last 2 days we did not have buffet (as we paid) and they did not cook a la carte. it seems that the hotel was out of food. however, i made a special request and they did spaghetti and chicken. breakfast was pieces of bread, butter and omelet. you have to buy also drinking water. it's a good place for relaxing but only for 3 days. the hotel does not organize activities and there are things to do as trekking,snorkeling and they should offer massages or yoga at the beach. it was difficult to find somebody speaking english on duty.
We had a wonderful 3D2N at Aseania. The beach is beautiful; the sea is crystal clear, with plenty of fish; the food is nice, especially the BBQ dinner at Sunday night. The only issue is that the chalet is not perfectly sealed. We were worried about insects coming in so we kept the aircon on all the time, which is perfect for my husband but too cold for me!
We had a fantastic stay. The island is stunning, and the resort very well cared for. We had sea views from our doorstep, and although the resort was pretty full it didn't seem busy. Breakfast a bit basic, but Malaysian dinner fare excellent- fresh and tasty. Have already recommended this place many times! Really didn't want to leave.
Tranquil and relaxing”
This was a family trip with 12 of us - young and old - and we had a great time, enjoying one another's company, relaxing on the beach, in the pool and during mealtimes as well. The staff were great - friendly and attentive, always ready with a big smile. As we only stayed for a night, we did not engage in the snorkelling trips etc, but merely enjoyed the basic amenities of the resort, which was enough for us for such a short stay.
Nice resort with great staff”
We enjoyed our time here and found the place good value for money even though the place was a little run down. The staff were all very nice and helpful. Be aware that sandflies can be found at the beach so it's best to apply lots of repellent as the bites were really itchy (we suffered from some bites). Overall a nice resort with great staff on a beautiful island.
The hotel is OK”
When you go make sure you take cash as they do no accept credit cards,So when you come to settle your bill at the end of the holiday it may mean having one of the staff following you back to mersing to raid all the local cash machines, Although they advertise Internet you will be lucky if you get to check your email's no signal, The service can be very poor at times so unless you are sat in front of the bar and in view you can feel forgotten, Take your own medical lotions pills etc as there is nothing there, But on the whole it was a nice place and staff
Perfect for short gateway”
The good: 1) Staffs there are incredibly nice and helpful. 2) Check in and out was hassle free. 3)The country chalet was comfortable. 4) Jungle tracking was tiring but fun. 5) BBQ dinner is awesome. 6) Beach is so beautiful and clean. 7) sunset is remarkably beautiful. 8) Strix the nightguard dog is so cute. Need to improve : 1) Alot of ants in the room. 2) Instruction of ferry could be clearer.
this place is best of all resorts at this island. i would highly recommend this. very nice beach and cafeteria. i loved the chalets. only problem faced is lots of mosquitoes but this was resolved when hotel gave us a repellent. one more thing when we reached hotel they told us that return ferry ticket is nowhere included so we had to pay extra.
Am kinda disappointed in the stay after reading so many awesome reviews about this hotel. No doubt the sea is beautiful and the place is tranquil. However, there are alot if insects in the room and around it. I have loads of bites mark after a 2 night stay. Also, the tap water is salty water. Ended up having to use mineral water for teeth brushing. Requested to change beach towel and was told that they only change towel once every 2 days. We are talking about beach towels here which gets dirty and wet. How can we use it for 2 days before changing? Finally, agoda should indicate that the pricing is exclusive of boat transfer. Paid another 180RM for 2 person boat transfer. Overall an okie stay. But would probably not want to go back again.
Nice hotel on superb location”
hotel is on a lovely location with perfect white sand beach. staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and food is ok. please take note they will charge you extra for returning boat ride (rm45/pax), even though you pay boat transfer already with agoda booking. another disadvantage is that there are not many extra features (sport activities), just the pool.
Will come again.. beautiful resort
