Of all the resort that is located along the Perhentian Island, one could easily missed this resort which is rather isolated but packed with treasure. The trip to this venue requires a ride from Kuala Besut via smaller bot. The ride which took about 75 minutes could be bumpy but the prize is priceless. Bubbles are located on an isolated... More

From the boat ride to the island, we couldn't see the chalets as we approached it because the chalets are 'hidden' behind the trees. It has a very secluded and private feel to it which makes it even better than the other resorts on very commercialised beaches lined with shops. Good selection of buffet food, and there's always some choices... More

Cannot say enough about chill, relaxed, beautiful Bubbles and the wonderful Bubbles crew. Learned to dive, relaxed on the beach, snorkeled with sharks and minnows, swung through the trees. They graciously provided a birthday cake for my husband and everyone sang along - felt like family! Truly a tropical island paradise. If you can find your way there GO!

This is a very, very beautiful beach, a paradise, and that is the reason we profoundly enjoyed our stay. The rooms and facilities are basic. Transportation from and to the airport was well-organized. There are two major issues: 1. Food: The food you get there (and as it is an isolated beach there are no alternatives) is mostly hard to... More

Got Room 16. Lovely open concept shower area (can be smaller). Kindda scary that it is roofless. The toilet is way too small. But other about the room is great (especially the mattress and those pillows!!). I simply love those variety of plants around the centre, with many butterflies flying freely, squirrels jumping around, monitor lizard walking about. I also... More

We stayed here for a few days relaxation and so our teenagers could get their PADI qualification. As soon as we arrived we felt totally relaxed and very welcome. Everyone was so hospitable and the atmosphere is incredibly laid back. The sand was white, as promised, and the sea clearer than you would think possible. Bubbles is the only hotel/resort... More

Excellent location for a truly unique get away. The diving is excellent, as is the snorkelling (my son completed his open water diving qualification here). The staff, especially Dolan,are brilliant, the rooms comfortable with good air com and the food is good.
