Loocation very good, no so far from pulau perhentian kecil
The staff were nice especially at the restaurant. They were attentive to our needs. They clean the rooms regularly as requested. The rooms and the beds are comfortable. The only thing I'd probably advise about is that the beach in front of the resort is not that swimmable because there are corals. However you still get to enjoy looking at the fish and marine life. Just head to the beach in front of Perhentian Island Resort for a swim. The water is crystal clear and the sand is so fine it feels like powder. The resort will recommend this to you as well.

Very good food
We went to the Barat restaurant every evening during our 4-nights stay on the island. The grilled fish was fantastic! You go to the grill area and puck-up your fish. The portions are abundant and of good quality. The have also beer which it's not trivial on the island close to season closure. Highly recommended!

Price reasonable, very poor hygiene
We took Garden family room, the room was small, bathroom was very dirty and smelly. Water pressure was very low. The bathroom smell cant tolerate, the bed sheet was not clean also. Dirty and smelly. The resort near to jetty, have own activities booth. The activity price is reasonable. The food very expensive, but portion is big. Overall expect the room, the location was good, the Perhentian Island beach is just 10 min walk. There is cafe beside Belinda cafe, food is very nice and reasonable.

Good Stay for 4D3N @ The Barat
Was just returned yesterday and I love the cozy beach front chalet! It seems like newly refurnish and it was clean, comfy and beautiful! They gave us RM250 voucher per person for foods and drinks at the restaurant. If you don't go for BBQ seafood every night, it is more than enough for your 4 days stay. Good location with the dive center next door, beautiful beach and I love the relaxing chairs in front of our chalet! Good to chill and relax during my trip and yea, I will be back again!

I wouldn't stay even for FREE
Stayed at Barat after done many research where to stay at Perhentian, thanks God i had booked 2 place to stay, at least one of them would be our like. First of all room is too small, light is so dark , bathroom never been cleaned 1 year maybe, bed-sheets color already yellowish. Second night stay there was heavy raining at night , so from the rooftop start water drop, i had to move my bed , but there is no place to move even, i was like sleeping in the raining. Staff was rude , our last day we went beach and whence we back our room at 11 40am their staff was waiting us at our room and asking to check out immediately, it was so rude, is like i dont know what is time check out. I came reception at 12 05 noon they said i am late to check out, as their check out time is 12 noon. OMG thats is so rude and unpolite for the guest, as i am 5 min late to check out. Well i am paying for hotel to stay , not them asking for free stay, as their service and hotel is too poor. i never recommend this resort and never be back again.

You get what you pay for
Stayed 5 nights at the Barat Perhentian on family Dive trip. Had a superior chalet with 2 queen beds - which was fine for the 3 of us. Room was clean & comfortable & the combination of the aircon & fan made it easy to cool down. Bathroom however was small & cramped. No connected TV - but can get a hard drive loaded with movies & other entertainment for kids if required (free of charge). Staff were all very friendly & attentive & happy to help organise trips, water taxis etc for you. Food at the Barat restaurant was good - if slightly more expensive than some of the adjacent options. Wifi only in public areas - and it was TERRIBLE. We would often go & dine at Belinda's or the Blue Paradise- both next door- just so we could log on to the rest of the world. Overall - pretty good value for money - especially in comparison to some other options on Besar- which can be considerably more expensive. Verdict: we'd give it another go.
