As we know, perhentian besar doesn't have a lot of resorts therefore it is good for a family vacation that needs a serenity, quietness, good sleep etc..but those who needs a lively vacation, you may choose perhentian kecil, such as long beach area.. This hotel welcomed us with asam boy drink to chill out your thirst after 30 minutes on the speed boat..but there were no TV, laundry bag, tasteless food for lunch and dinner..they should hire better chef!!!

Great room, perfect view from our seaview room balcony, they top up mini bar everyday for free & clean the room everyday, but I think they should improve a lot for breakfast (provide like nasi dagang, traditional food). We were very dissappointed that they just provide nasi goreng with no lauk at all on our second day. Not a 4 star standard breakfast.

The staff is very nice, but there’s no electricity until 7pm. The facility described here is not correct. The location is good to stay if you have limited budget

I love this resort! Brought my parents and sibling here they love it as well, I would definitely come back for the hospitality and the food. Do try the salted egg prawn cus its very delicious. However, I would not recommend this resort to elderly people with knee problems or disabled person because the road to get to each room is quite steep. Other than that, all is good and we are satisfied.

About

Perhentian Islands are located approximately 19 kilometres off the coast of north eastern Malaysia in the state of Terengganu and around 64 kilometres south of the Thai border. The name Perhentian means "stopping point" in Malay as these islands became a staging point used by traders traveling from Malaysia to Bangkok. Pulau Perhentian was one of the islands where Vietnamese refugees or boat people landed during the 1970s. The two main islands are Pulau Perhentian Besar ("Big Perhentian Island") and Pulau Perhentian Kecil ("Small Perhentian Island"). The small island attracts more travellers as it has cheaper accommodation, while the big one is more expensive and more suitable for family and friends. All the islands belong to a protected marine park which means that fishing, collecting coral and littering are strictly prohibited. People here generally speak Kelantanese Malay and English is also widely spoken to local and international tourists.
