                    Experience was better than the reviews!”

                    The garden villa looks exactly like the photos, which is not necessarily true for all hotels. The villa itself was clean and spacious. I thoroughly enjoyed the complete privacy, from the enclosed garden wall. The staff were courteous and helpful, and very friendly. The food was exceptionally delicious. The villa was situated away from the reception area, so it was especially quiet at night, even with the loud music from the bars on the beach. Didn't want to leave the peace and tranquility of the resort. Now I can't wait to go back!

                    Perhentian Island one dream”

                    After two years we returned for 4 nights to the Bubu Villa and once again we were satisfied. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well organized. Breakfast is partly served at the table and partly as a buffet, only problem is if you arrive late, you'll find little to eat. The person in charge of the structure is an exquisite person, always available and above all he dedicates himself body and soul to the moment the customer is satisfied. Ranieri you are a myth. Two years later some things have changed of course, there is a decline in personnel, all helpful and kindly with us but the service at the table is not the same than before. Special in the evening the organization that Ranieri and Matilde imposed was missing ... now that she is no more in the structure Ranieri alone cannot succeed in everything. We just hope he can reach the same livel than before without to become "crazy"

                    Probably the best accom on Long Beach”

                    Beautiful chalets set just behind the Southern end of Long Beach. The chalets are lovely, well designed, private, romantic, quiet and comfortable. Only downside was the considerable price - I paid SGD$250 a night which is excessive for Kecil and the restaurant and day trips etc are over-priced compared to the rest of the beach. Very comfortable and enjoyable stay overall though. 4 Stars.

                    Amazing short trip in Perhentian Island! BuBu Villa is the place to be!”

                    I travelled alone and booked the last room available at BuBu Villa the day before and I couldn’t have made a better choice. The resort is beautiful,, you can have a glorious massage by the beach for a very reasonable price, the staff are the friendliest, most accommodating and most helpful people and on top of that the chef and owner are fellow Italians and the food that I had at the resort’s Word Café was just amazing!!! So glad I went there and chose BuBu Villa and I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!

                    Fantastic stay at Bubu Villa 2019”

                    Everything was perfect with one fairly significant caveat - the shower and toilet were outdoors in the back of the villa. We visited in mid-late May, and while not entirely sure if this is a seasonal thing (might be the case year-round), there were mosquitoes. Every time we had to step out to take care of bathroom-related business, we had to risk getting bit by mosquitoes. Plus having to go #2 in the 100 degree heat while listening to your next door neighbor(s) showering wasn’t the most comfortable bathroom-going experience. However, the charms of the resort far outweighed this little inconvenience and we would definitely come back to Bubu Villa when we return to the Pehretians.

                    We had a great 3 nights stayed at Garden Villa at Bubu Villa. Our 20 months old boy enjoyed so much playing at the white beach with the varieties of beach toys provided by the villa and playing in the clear sea water. The garden villa is spacious and comfy however there are no TV and fridge. Their breakfast is good and staff are very friendly and attentive. If you would prefer a quite stay then it is advisable to choose the garden villa as beach villa are nearer to the cafes and bar from next door where there will be loud music playing through out the night.

                    We had a garden villa. Spacious and clean. Loved the outside and inside shower (floor to ceiling glass). Very private. An in room fridge might have been nice. Cocktails on the beach. Use of Bubu resort included and we used it as the snorkelling was at that end of the beach. Long beach is busy but Bubu villa is slightly removed. Being at the far end of the beach was no problem. Apparently there was 'no ferry' on the Saturday we needed to return but a private boat was provided for us at the usual cost.

                    Pleasant enough stay for a couple nights”

                    Pros: - very friendly and courteous staff, always helpful and kind. - our room was nicely located in a quieter section of the resort. - food was excellent. - the room itself was very clean, modern. Lovely hot shower and comfy bed. - located pretty much just a few metres away from the beach so convenient for a swim. Cons: - not their fault but loud music pumps every night from the nearby bars. - no fridge/TV, this should be a given in any resort. We stayed at a cheaper place on Besar and they even had this. - value for money I must admit is not the greatest. - no curtains or blinds on the shower/toilet or door as it is all open but the fence around the villa's courtyard keeps the privacy, may be an issue for some. - again, not their fault, but the water in the beach is somewhat filthy with garbage and the stench of boat fuel lingers

                    great place to stay, good food and staff are super

                    Overall its a super nice place to stay at however there was no wifi (had it maybe 1, 3-4minitues each time in 5 days), breakfast could improve as not so much choice. The good thing is the food, brilliant staff that comes and takes orders on the beach, delivers free drinks (2 free drinks between 5-6pm that are amazing). overall the best palce on long beach and would go again.

                    Most luxurious hotel on the island”

                    almost equivalent to a 5 star hotel without the facilities like Gym and Swimming pool

                    Although this is the most expensive hotel on the island, you will never regret staying there. compared to the other hotels which can be up to 80% cheaper, you get what you pay for. the hotel is very new and therefore everything is clean and nice. at the end of the day, when you return to the hotel even for a quick shower and rest, you truly appreciate the convenience (located just 3 mins walk from long beach) of it's location. staff was really friendly and helpful throughout my 4 days there. if you have the money and can afford to pay, don't hesitate further, no other hotels on this island is comparable to this.

                    Price is not worth for the kind of resort”

                    Price are expensive especially the extra bed which charge rm300 per night which not include others meals and only include breakfast which limited option of food. There have a new resort which I feel better than Bubu villa with their price, facilities and more worth of money. I hope management May review ur price which not so worth which not have much facilities and so on. The event of snorkeling which provide by Bubu villa also really expensive when we compare with others places.

                    Clean but not worth for the money”

                    + clean room + some staffs are very friendly + the world cafe is in my opinion the best in big and small island. +the hotel is for traveller who always stayed at the hotel. - when I arrived the jetty I called the hotel to pick me up, but they didnt because I didnt book the transfer with there company. The staff excused when I arrived - some staffs were not friendly -the seaview room hasnt a sea view -general not worth for the money -the bar next to the hotel is very lound.

                    Lovely place to stay on a beautiful island”

                    We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon after being moved on arrival from BuBu resort just down the beach. We were very happy with our room, the staff and all of the delicious food we ate at the world cafe. The hotel is right on a lovely part of long beach and has lots of sun beds for guests to use on the beach free of charge. The staff were lovely and helped us organise a brilliant snorkelling trip which we thoroughly enjoyed! The sea life is incredible we loved spotting sea turtles as well as reef sharks and many different types of tropical fish. The room rate was a bit high for what you get but it is the nicest accommodation on Kecil. We will never forget our stay, we loved Perhentian Kecil it is a real hidden gem of an island.

                    A piece of paradise”

                    We stayed in a Garden room. Lovely spacious room, quiet and effective aircon, garden rooms have a small enclosed garden so there is total privacy. We stayed in May - the resort was very quiet which we loved. Enough people further down long beach if we wanted a bit of atmosphere in the evenings but so lovely to have beaches practically to ourselves. The staff at Bubu are amazing, very friendly, professional and efficient. The food at Bubu is the best on the Island.

                    Probably the most luxurious accommodation at Perhentian Kecil. Nice clean rooms and very spacious. Not at all noisy during my stay contradictory to some other reviews. Staff was very accommodating. I guess the only downside is that there is no TV or fridge in the rooms
