Water hot water shower not working. The shower door cannot lock. Lot of ants in the room. The room need some repair for there was termite damage on the room walls. The pool and pool area was not well maintain. The resort location is near to the beach, but still quite far to walk.

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!!!

About

Besut has been mentioned a little in the book written by Raja Ali Haji, ‘Tuhfat Al Nafis’, which notes on the adventures encountered by the great traveller, Munshi Abdullah during his travels to Kelantan.

There are several versions to the history about the naming of Besut. One of the legend was that Besut was then under the rule of Siam. The name Besut is derived from two Siamese words, the word ‘be’ which means district while the word ‘sut’ means an area that is very far away. It is believed that this explanation is true due to the long distance between Besut and Bangkok.

Another story of the name Besut came when in the early days, Besut was ruled by a very cruel pirate chief king named Raja Sang Nyanya. Because of that, not many people wanted to settle and lived in Besut. It was only after his death that people start settling in including a group of people from Pangan. Their leader was called Besut and the area soon was named after the Pangan leader.

Besut is a district in Terengganu, Malaysia. It is bordered by the state of Kelantan to the north and west and the South China Sea to the east. Besut is the northern gateway of Terengganu. Although Jerteh is more developed, the district capital of Besut is Kampung Raja. Another major town in Besut is the fishing port called Kuala Besut. Other small towns under Besut district includes Jabi, Apal, Bukit Kenak, Bukit Puteri, Hulu Besut, Keluang, Kerandang, Kubang Bemban, Lubuk Kawah, Pelagat, Pengkalan Nangka, Perhentian Island, Pasir Akar, Tenang and Tembila.

Locals in Dungun speaks Bahasa Melayu with the eastern accent. However, it is notable that most Malays in Besut identify themselves with Kelantanese identity rather than the Terengganuan identity. Thus, locals of Besut prefer to speak Kelantan Malay accent instead of Terengganu Malay accent.
