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.
Best Hotel around! Most friendly and open stuff. Worth a journey!”
Feom pick up till drop off a service experience. Stuff is amazing! Service oriented but don't want to "sell" anything. Already recommended it to friends. Worth the price and we would love to come back.
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
Best Stay in Perhentian Kecil”
I fell in love with all the staffs and owner.They all are super friendly and helpful.Great villa,great food,best location and what else you need.Perfect combo stay in Perhentian Kecil.Most recommended place to stay .10/10
great holiday place”
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”
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.
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.
Really love it.
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
Superb staycation!! ”
Everything was perfect! All the staffs were sooooo helpful and very friendly! From the receptionist, to the staffs at cafe, especially Julius and others who arranged our simple last minute candle light dinner for free!! Our honeymoon went so great. We will come bck soon!! Thankyou Bubu! - shira&iqwan
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! :)
Amazing, but not cheap”
Beautiful, clean, spacious villas. Right on long beach. Food was fantastic but not cheap. There are other hotels all along the beach but this one is clearly the nicest. The staff were very kind and snorkeling trips were conveniently organized directly from the hotel.
Best location and most amazing clear water. The staff were awesome and super helpful. Had so much fun playing in the waves all day long. Best hotel room I have ever stayed in. I love the outdoor shower and privacy that the room offered. Be sure to have a departing flight that leaves at least later than no onto make sure you can get a boat back to the ferry terminal in time. Spend the extra cash for this hotel it is worth every penny epically the two free drinks every night during happy hour 5-6pm .
Nice place to stay”
Location wise is very strategic near to other restaurant, jetty n other water sport facilities with calm n clean sandy beach so kids can play safely but still under adult monitoring. Friendly staff n good hospitality. Our room is ok but sadly they don't have fridge n incidently our air conditioning not working well so need them to fixed. For food some of menu from Asian Kitchen was not available that time & couldn't found coconut drink 😔😔. Bad internet connection but that's ok it's beach life gateway 🤘🏻. We surely come back again when the toddler getting bigger so can do snorkle next time😄😄
An oasis on 'backpacker' beach”
A little oasis away from the madding crowd. The only thing that let this hotel down was the almost constant noise pollution from neighbouring establishments. The staff are all so friendly and the hotel is clean. Good food...
Charges for an additional bed is too expensive , which is RM 300 per night .”
The open toilet and bath room is definitely not suitable for family stay . The beautiful and spacious garden of the villa serve no purpose at all because it do not have any chairs or coffee table for us to relax. The coffee table is the coffee making table which is just in front of the open toilet. I will never come to this resort any more as all of my family members are enjoying the stay.
Great staff, fab location and relax”
Yasin the chef is fantastic...friendliest and best chef I know in Malaysia, and Zi makes great coffee and the kids love him. This is prob the best accommodation on Perhentian Kecil, but you pay for it and it is worth it. Free cocktails at 5-6pm are yum too.
