              Coral View is a beautiful location with excellent snorkeling available right from the hotel beach. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and were quite helpful in arranging inexpensive and excellent tours around the island. We hope to come again in the future!

              We stayed as at Coral View for a family holiday and had a delightful time! The location is absolutely beautiful and amazing. Crystal-clear waters and snorkeling available right off the beach in front of the hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They arranged two snorkeling trips for us which were excellent. I look forward to when we can return!!!

              Located on pulau besar (larger island)”

              Cosy place with beach on 2 sides and hills/jungle behind. Lovely coral located around the corner of first beach. Although most restaurants, dive centres, cheap accommodations etc. are located on pulau kechil (smaller island) but this is a good place for a quite beach and dive holiday. Water taxis are abundant and can bring people between two islands in 10-15min. These taxis charge double at night because of less passengers and poor visibility in the sea. This place also has an in-hotel restaurant which us not so good. However there is a nice restaurant in Barat inn(about 5 min walk from this resort). Overall, it is a nice place with lovely huts, a bit expensive though. Recommended if you are willing to spend some cash for a better room. Otherwise head to pulau kechil for cheap accomodation.

              Second time stayed at this resort and had a wonderful time once again. This time room was upgraded as per my request to beach front (all rooms were recently renovated) by Madam Farida. She is a very competent Manager and graceful person. Mr. Meehun, boatmen and all other staff were so kind. Bought breakfast buffet which was good and tasty. Kids loved the ambiance and beach points. Only issue I have faced was wifi connectivity but I was managinf things via my data sim. A must try at this resort, you guys will not regret.

              Location is, of course, the best, located in Perhentian Besar. We have to take a lot of stairs to reach our room, so it is a chance for us to exercise. The room is just so-so with not-functioning TV. Have to request for a towel. They hire Bangladesh people that don't even know how to speak Malay to work at the front desk instead of hiring local people. The waiter at the restaurant also chit chatting with, I don't know, VIP maybe, and ignoring us, the non-VIP, to order. Double standard.

              The room was extremely dirty and the toilet as well. We stayed in one of the further room from the beach so we had to climb a lot of stairs, sometimes the area(steps/hand rails) were dirty with animals poo (monkeys) ... and the also dry guest's towels on these hand rail The restaurant food a bit expensive and not so good.

              Solid Choice”

              We ended up arriving one day early (made the last ferry from Kota Bharu) and the owner was able to provide a couple room options. We upgraded rooms for the whole four night stay to one of the sea front cottages (older ones) and it was a great choice. Room size and cleanliness adequate. Kids cold swim and snorkel right in front of us. Great to have a front deck to lay out. Restaurant was ok but Barat was best for food. Also try Moma's. A beautiful setting for a much enjoyed beach respite.

              I planned for a 3D2N Perhentian Trip to propose to my gf (now fiancee) and I was recommended to this resort. The location is excellent. Just right at the corner so we can enjoy 2 beach views. From there, you can go to nearby Perhentian island resort for canoeing, swimming, snorkeling (they got the best beach) or go to the other side of Barat resort for food. On my first night, I requested the resort staff to prepare romantic candle light dinner on the beach. Very memorable for both of us.

              nice room but need to climb a lot of stairs, for snorkeling better do it early in the morning, easier to go beyond those big rock for better experience. Not suitable for elderly, since you need to climb in and out of boat for transfer, the hotel doesn't have a proper jetty. Bring a lots of drinks, you wont regret the weight! The food is not bad, the staff is very helpful & friendly.

              beach, cozy room, water pressure

              1. The room was very antic, in a positive meaning. The room reminds me of a traditional hut where I visited my baby-sitter's family when I was small. The room was in between woods and beach. First, I was scared of mosquito at night, but I was so wrong. At night, I was able to sleep by the beach, on the deck chair, under the sky for several hours. 2. I was happy that the water pressure in the shower is good. So, it is easy to clean my sea salt hair and wash my swimming attire. 3. When I went on snorkeling trip, I stop at the turtle point and managed to see three average size of turtles. Then only I noticed that the turtle point is just in front of the resort. 4. The beach next to the resort is so beautiful.

              Best resort you could ask for”

              1) Clean, great view eventhough i didnt choose a sea view room, good staff (the staff politely ask if we want a room service & apologize coz he unable to clean our room since he hv to rush for friday prayer). Food at the cafe bit pricey but worth your money. So tasteful. I booked d standard aircond room, there is water heater & mini freezer but sadly no keetle. There’s quite hassle for a mother with young kids but staff at d cafe give us a hot water upon request with no charge. Great service & i will definitely come again!!
