        Fantastic resort in a great location with the vest reataurant on the island on its premises”

        We stayed for three nights in the Bubu resort and really enjoyed our stay. While it is a more costly option than other resorts on the island the amazing service, prime location sunbeds, and snorkeling gear for borrowing in addition to a daily complimentary happy hour coctail all makes it feel like good value for money. Nice rooms, friendly staff, great restaurant and perfect location on long beach.

        The restaurant and the breakfast was great! After one year in Malaysia is of high value to have fresh croissants for breakfast 😍. The staff was nice and very competent and the snorkeling trip organize by he hotel is also the best! Take the bubu boat for the shuttle to mainland and you will have a easy going experience

        Bubu resort was a very pleasant stay for us. The rooms were great, and the staff were very helpfull. Getting free rental of the snorkling gear was a plus! This time however, at the back of the stay there was many construction where it might smell a bit when you walk outside. No problems whatsoever in the room though.

        My friend and I went to Perhentian Island for a dive trip and were thankful for the clean and convenient stay at Bubu resort. The staff were very friendly and the room was excellent. Only issue was the unreliable wifi connection in the rooms. Other than that, Bubu was fantastic.

        My room is beside the water pump with messy condition as the construction is going on. Every day & night, only can hear the water pump noise instead of wave sound. House keeping didnt change tower on daily basis and didnt wash the mug/cup. No phone in the room to call house keeping or frontdesk. Disappointing as this hotel is not value for money. Definately will come back to this island with family but wont stay at this hotel again. My first and last.

        Location was superb, welcoming staff was friendly, complimentary snorkeling equipment provided, complimentary breakfast and evening cocktail provided. Food service is unfortunately extremely slow despite the premium food price. The room we stayed did not have fridge and did not have TV. We asked for ice to keep out beverage cold but was charged for it even though they didn't provide fridge to keep our beverage cold.

        3 nights in paradise ”

        Bubu resort is in a beautiful location and easy to find on long beach away from the noise of the parties/backpacker stays at the other end of the beach. The staff are lovely and cannot help enough. The free cocktails and nibble hour between 5-6pm was a bonus too! The room was comfortable with good aircon and a great bathroom. The only cons are really about long beach rather than bubu itself and that’s that there are way too many speed boats making the whole beach smell of petrol and makes it dangerous to swim or even to walk along the beach with so many cmchors sticking out of the sand. There should be a limit of how many boats and a specific area for them. We left feeling out lungs were full of this smell rather than fresh air. I can only imagine what awful things it’s doing to the marine life and people that work/live there.

Also thanks to Azuan from Iz Village (kuala besut) to help me to get the fastest next boat that goes to Kuala Besut If i have the chance to come again to perhentian and kuala besut, these 2 places definetely would be the place for me to stay.

The bed slept great and the view was spectacular! It costed Some more money than the rest on the island but is was more than worth it!

        the best hotel on the Island”

        As I see, this is the best hotel on the Island. It's not cheap, but comfortable for european people, especially for Familys. The most beautifull beach on the Island is the long beach. because of Bubu resort's renovation we got a Family villa. It was enough modern, and clear. The staff is very friendly. If you travel with kids, you must choose this hotel. Others are full with backpackers.

        A very nice resort in a great location. We had dinner twice, the BBQ and a la carte and both were excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The two free cocktails a night was a wonderful surprise! To sit on the beach at 5pm and be served cocktails was perfect. No wonder we didn't want to go anywhere else for dinner! We thought the snorkel trip at MR150 was expensive and with a stroll along the beach found the same for MR60! I know resorts add on a bit and fair enough but this was pricing itself out of the market. Overall a great experience and we would stay there again.

        Best hotel on Pulau Perhentian Kecil”

        The rooms are very comfortable, and the location and restaurant (particularly the buffet breakfast and BBQ) are fantastic. It was lovely getting 2 free cocktails each night. Only issue was the lack of wifi, as BuBu had exceeded its download limit halfway through the month. While the price of this hotel is very high for what you get, it is by far the best place to stay on Kecil - the standard of accommodation at the other guesthouses and hotels was poor.
