Stayed at the end of July with my family and we had a really nice time enjoying the beach, learning about turtle conservation and generally having a nice time. The resort consists of the large restaurant area fronting the beach, dive centre next door and accommodation away from the beach (about a 10 second walk). Staff are friendly and accommodating...

This place is a paradise. Location of the resort is perfect, staff is very friendly and attentive. Lots of things to do for children and adults. In my view this is a great place to stay on the island.

Kudos to the owners and operators of Bubbles for creating a lovely, private and eco-friendly resort on a secluded corner of Perhentian Besar! Our family of four spent 5 great days diving and totally destressing from city life. The resort is the only one on a small stretch of beautiful white sand. Apart from guests and staff no-one else comes... More

Went to Bubbles for a diving course and was greeted by a resort that gave me all I needed for a getaway from the city's daily grind.

Bubbles is located on a beautiful beach. It is quite campy, having a turtle conservation center and playground for rabbits. The food served at each meal is buffet style, Malaysian food and is quite mediocre. The rooms are good quality and some of them have open air showers. They are good value and cool and comfortable. The diving staff unfortunately... More

My family (2 adults, 2 boys 8 & 10) visited Bubbles 8-13 May, 2016. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, notwithstanding a few disappointments. This was a splendid place for my wife & boys to learn--and fall in love with--snorkeling. The water quality was not what we'd hoped (cloudier than ideal), and the coral formations are long-dead or dying. That doesn't... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. What made it outstanding' was the opportunity to see first hand what turtle conservation is all about, and the passion and hard work which goes into helping these beautiful animals. You have the opportunity to see a turtle after she has finished laying her eggs on the beach,... More
