As you arrive at the hotel's jetty, slightly at your right, about 1 o'clock from the main entrance you'll find a chalet like building, that's Leisure Diver's base. They do not have a huge area for visitors or fellow divers to hang around, at most 3-4 tables but rest assured they are very friendly and well organised. Stuffs are friendly...

If you fancy a budget friendly budget friendly trip within the Malayan Peninsular, Terengganu's Pulau Perhentian fits the bill as a peaceful, rejuvenating little retreat. There are 2 Pulau Perhentian, Kecil (the hipper of the two. Kecil means small) and Besar (Big). Either way, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to the sheer amount of Chalets and Resorts, and...

The resort itself doesn't have a beach where one might swim, fur this purpose you have to take a boat to the west coast of the island or to Pulau Kecil. The rooms definitely need refurbishment as they are a complete writeoff. One of the benefits of the place is the snorkeling trips you can book there - the guys...

I would rate this is as just average. Stayed at the sea front view chalet. Water pressure is very low. Rooms are clean. Thank goodness they come with air conditioning. There's a beach bar around 100 meters away for those looking for alcohol. Wifi is only at lobby, weak though. Scuba, snorkeling, water taxis and island hopping activities are all...

Both times I went to the Perhentian Islands Arwana was the only place available to book (I left it too late!). The rooms are clear and quite big, and the pool is really nice. The breakfast and boat transfer came with my booking on Agoda, which was helpful. The breakfast changes a bit each day and is good - lots...

Overall for this hotel is average. Nice beach, package breakfast is good, meal is tasty. Overall cleanliness for this hotel is average. Swimming pool and room toilet are not really clean. Public wifi at Lobby was very slow and very difficult to connect.

Rooms at arwana are horribly maintained, staff have no regard for their customers whatsoever, hotel manager behaves like a mob boss, they charge for ice, food is horrible and the only entertainment at night is by the reception playing movies over projector. For better food & friendly service ... Lookout for restaurant mandalika along the beach ... About 100 meters...

No wifi, fridge, tv, drinks, hairdryer in the room. Aircon is not working well despite after maintenance service. Houseflies on the food, cracked and dirty cups at the buffet restaurant unacceptable. Swimming pool and beach ok. Hot and filtered water available at the lobby.
