Location of the hotel is great with a close by jetty and plenty of eating stalls around. The staffs are friendly and helpful but unfortunately the hotel is old and needs to be refurbished. We came as a family of 5 and booked 2 Superior rooms. The cupboards in my room were broken and the pillows were flat and did...

Amazing staff and client service. They were all time taking care of us. The website where we booked our room was wrong and they upgraded us to a family room. They offer snorkeling tours and the guide was really friendly and funny. The hotel has an enormous swimming pool and lobby. Buffet for breakfast was included.

It appears to be one of the more well-established resorts along the southern lagoon of Perhentian Besar. It has its own jetty, which makes it much easier when docking to go on land. The rooms at the resort, however, lack quite a number of basic amenities. For instance, the rooms are not equipped with a TV, a fridge, a mini...

It was rough weather to start with island vacation but we manage to feel good once arrive. A nice warm smile welcome us and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are good & affordable for budget of 5 family members to stay. The pool....kids just love the pool. Foods is ok but there shops just nearby that serve local...

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...
