I've been with my wife at this hotel for 3 days. Honestly, its one of the worst hotels I've ever been...it's unbelievably old, falling apart, no maintenance, no tv, no internet, no hand towels, expect some bugs along with you in the room... well, you name it. There's no sense of comfort or service, although the staff is very kind...

Hi Paulo ! Thank you for staying with us recently and we have noted on your comments. Our renovation program is now 80% completed and the newly refurbished rooms have received much positive feedback from our guests. However, it is our concept not to have a TV in the room so our guests can spend more time appreciating the mother...

We stayed at the Resort for 7 nights. It was not an hour to much. We absolutely loved the place. The beachfront bungalow was great with a huge bathroom and lots of room for storage. There was a nice portia with direct view to the lovely water. Food isn't great, but it is okay. But the Beach and water -...

The Perhentian Islands are without doubt the most beautiful Islands I have had the privilege of visiting.

To keep things simple, I am...

We loveee this place. We saw a turtle right in front of the resort. We even swim with it. The beach here is beautiful. The room is moderate. But the most important hing for us is the beach. Hopefully the beach will stay beautiful like that forever.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perhentian Island Resort is an ideal beach resort for a leisurely family vacation in Malaysia. Surrounded by lush greenery, facing white sandy beaches and a warm blue sea, Perhentian Island is a holiday paradise not to be missed. Perhentian Island, or Pulau Perhentian as the locals call it, is well known as a marine paradise and forms a parts of the National Marine Park of Malaysia. In the surrounding areas of Perhentian Island Resort, you will find many things to see and do. Take a jungle trek up the hills under a canopy of large trees, and you might see wild magpies, giant fruit bats or the Nicobar pigeon. Perhentian Island lies along the flight path of this migratory bird. You might also see the harmless monitor lizard or even the unique lutong monkey species. The nearest jungle trail is less than 100 metres away from our resort. Or gather your family and head to the inviting sea for a swim. For those who enjoy snorkelling or scuba diving, the Resort is strategically located, fronting a coral-rich bay. The marine ecosystem of this area is well documented and held in high regards by snorkellers and scuba divers. If you come between June and September, you might get lucky and see giant green turtles laying eggs along the beach. Enjoy your next family holiday at this paradise beach resort, where reality is like a dream. ... more   less
