Positives Resort well laid out. Rooms very comfortable. Food at restaurant top class. Staff helpful and friendly. Awesome clear water. Negatives Advertised WiFi is basically non existent. Too many locals/staff hanging around the reception eyeing the women on the beach. The beach area next to the resort is in need of a major cleanup. Too much rubbish and old unused...

Stayed with a friend at Bubu Villas and we absolutely loved it. Oscar at the front desk was super chill and made sure we had everything we needed during our entire stay. The entire staff was great and food was excellent - especially the dinner BBQ. Rooms were really nice (we had one with a private outdoor area) and totally...

The hotel has got the best location, right next to the beach. The staff makes you feel very welcomed and makes your stay as comfortable as possible. Loved the breakfast buffet and free cocktails that come with the room. The food here is great, as well as in the other Bubu restaurants. The villa we had was very nice. Good...

If you are on small Perhentian Kecil Island then this is only choice for more or less comfortable stay. The beach is not clean but the water is very clean. Very nice place. Super snork and diving specially if you go to 5 private island. Amazing !!! The hotel is fine.

I absolutely loved my stay at Bubu Villa!! From the moment we jumped on the Bubu water taxi we felt welcomed, and the island and water took my breath away (and I'm from Australia, home to some of the most amazing beaches in the world so I'm not easily impressed!!). We were greeted by the very friendly Oscar who took...

Bubu Villa is run by a set of Itallian entrepeneurs who make everything work. Best of all they took their chef with them! We resided in a family villa with two adults and two kids, enough space and the outdoor showers give you a bounty feeling. Longbeach gives you the holiday atmosphere, Bubu Villa gives you the hotel luxury to...
