                Best place to stay in the Perhentian Islands!”

                We could not have asked for a more amazing experience at Bubu. We absolutely loved our sweet little villa for the week! Our villa was clean, bright, air-conditioned (with the help of a strong fan), beautifully decorated, and perfectly private for our romantic getaway. The food at Bubu is wonderful. We especially loved getting to request our (complimentary) breakfast of choice every morning, and the two complimentary cocktails during happy hour. The staff was amazing. Very helpful, polite and delightful to interact with. The Bubu Villa grounds are gorgeous. Well kept, and the location is perfectly situated such that we were close to the action, but not right in it, so we weren't kept up by the late night music (we quite enjoyed the built-in soundtrack when hanging outside!). We loved having the option to go down to Bubu Resort for meals or cocktail hour there, and easily being able to charge it to our Villa room, no problem. I enjoyed laying out on the nice, padded lounge chairs with straw umbrellas in each location as well. There are plenty of other more affordable places to stay on the islands. However, our stay at Bubu Villa was worth every single penny. Every day we spent there, we were so grateful to have a clean, gorgeous, private home away from home, situated right on the most glorious soft, white sandy [long] beach, looking out onto lush mountain sides, palm trees and the breathtaking crystal clear blue ocean. Paradise!! An absolute treat from start to finish. Thank you, Bubu, for guaranteeing our first visit to Perhentian Islands most definitely will not be our last! See you soon.

                Best in the Perhentians”

                The villa was very spacious, breakfast was great, and the location was perfect.

                This is by far the best place to stay on the Perhentian Islands. The villa is really lovely and very spacious with an awesome outdoor bathroom and lots of big windows. The breakfast was great with more than enough options and great coffee. Every evening guests get two free alcoholic cocktails, which given the price of alcohol in the Perhentians is really fantastic (it's a MYR140 value for two people every night). The beach is great and they have sun loungers with traditional umbrellas for guests in front of the resort. The beach on Long Beach is the probably one of the bluest water experiences you're ever going to have in your life. The room could have benefited from a fridge, a TV (just to be used to connect a laptop to for a movie at night), a small sound system and an armchair. For the price of the room, these extras should be included. Further, some minor repairs were needed (some lights in the back of the villa in the indoor section of the bathroom were broken, the air-conditioning dripped the last night we were there). Regardless of these issues, of the eight nights we spent in the Perhentians, the two at Bubu Villas were the best in terms of accommodation and service, we felt relaxed and comfortable.

                Great, great, Great”

                I visited Bubu with my family several months ago. Aside from their amazing facilities, the staff were amazingly brilliant. They were so keen to help us every time and went out of their way to keep us comfortable. They helped us arrange a personal speed boat for island hopping, made dinner reservations without us asking at their sister restaurant and such. It is definitely a great place to visit if you'd like to just relax and have a good time. Things are pricey, but what isn't in the Perhentian Islands. I had some trouble with the KL Bubu office about my reservation and *SheWhoShallNotBeNamed* was not too helpful. But the staff on site were brilliant. So if you're okay to get past the uncomfortable booking experience, the villa is great.

                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.

                The best in Long Beach!”

                Stayed 3 nights in the Bubu Villa and wished we could have stayed longer. We arranged a pick up from Kota Bharu by bus and speedboat and made some friends along the way. The villa looked better in real life than on the pictures. I didn't expected it to be spacious as well. The shower and the toilet has no door, which can be awkward if you are staying with friends, but as a couple we didn't mind. The Bubu Villa is situated at the best location (at the end) of the Long Beach where it was a little more quiet and with fewer boats blocking the view than at Bubu Resort. The best was that you can just swim and snorkel in the sea right of the beach. If you go a bit further into the sea near the rocks you can see a lot of fishes and even a couple of baby sharks which was the highlight of our trip. Mrs Chew was really helpful and arranged a shared boat transfer from Perhentian to Redang that was a lot cheaper than the local boat operators.

                Bubu villa was the best of our accomodations in the perhentians. It was very clean, the room was great and it had a nice shower. Food was also good, although a little expensive compared to the rest of the island. Long beach is a beautiful beach with white sand and some restaurants. Bubu even helped us when our luggage didn't arrive at he airport and got the luggage for us to the island. For that, we are very grateful! We had a perfect stay! :)

                Spacious chalet, sandy beach, friendly staff

                Perhentian Kecil is a party island. You have been warned. So the music blares on until late night. But lucky us, we are one of those who can pretty much sleep anywhere. Bubu Villa is located towards the end of Long Beach. Unfortunately for us, at that point of time, there was a construction going on and the view was marred by a big barge docked by the beach. The room was spacious. Poster bed, al fresco shower, etc etc. The restaurant is quiet which is a plus point to us. There are a lot of hangout joints along Long Beach up to Bubu Resort offering a variety of stalls, shisha, etc. Staff is great - Franco and the rest, very helpful and polite. Thanks to Mizi of Bubu Resort whom helped arrange for a massage by the Villa. Definitely the place to stay in Perhentian Kecil. Though it is quite costly.

                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!!!

                My boyfriend and I had a fabulous 3 nights at Bubu Villa. Our villa was still in completion so missing a some of the final touches such as gardens and outside rendering, however this place will be wonderful once finished. The staff were personable and attentive. They organised all the things we requested, and suggested a great snorkelling trip to the Baby islands. We are real foodies and would have liked some more Malaysian classics on the menu, but everything we tried was delicious and the kitchen standard is of a very high level. It was a great stay.

Rooms are spacious and quite new, atmosphere is very relaxing and all the hotel buildings are very discrete and respecting the beauty of the environment.

                Nicest hotel in Long Beach”

                It appears to me it is the nicest hotel in long beach, and one of the nicest in Perhentian islands. If you want hip area, this hotel is the good to go. The room is spacious enough for a couple but rather packed with kids as the extra bed made it difficult to move. The villa is private, the cocktail happy hour is nice but they did not give me for the 3rd person for the first 2days I stayed. The staff are hardworkers and helpful but the manager seems rather useless and rude to the staff. Breakfast is okay but too simple for the hotel's price.

                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"

                Nice villa with nice beach”

                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.

                wonderful spot”

                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.

                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.

                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

                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.

                We enjoyed our stay at Bubu Villa very much! The houses are new and comfortable. The only minus is the open design of the bathroom (at least in our villa). The breakfast is very good with European style and nice fresh juices, caffe latte, pancakes, omelettes and fresh fruits. The restaurant is a bit more expensive than other alternatives but the food is delicious. Wifi is also working very well and the staff is friendly. I recommend!

                We enjoyed our stay at the Bubu Villa, just wish it was a tad easier to get to but then that does add to it's charm, enjoyed the beautiful cove the Villa sits in and the water was great. Would recommend to others but would stay a few more days then the 2 days we were there.
