Very Bad
Very Good
We stayed here in August this year and had a brilliant time. Our chalet was basic but lovely and kept clean by housekeeping. The restaurant was good too and we ended up eating there each night- it was handy as we had a card which charged everything to the room for when we checked out. The snorkelling off the beach was good. We also booked a snorkelling tour through the hotel for an afternoon which was also very good. We used the dive shop next door to do our open water qualifications so it was in an ideal location. The transfers to and from the island were smoothly run and good value for money.

Tuna bay resort
One of the worst resort I have stayed in my life. It's only for the whites. No internet no telephone and nothing happens after 10 pm. It's closed. If somebody gets a heart attack nobody is around to assist. You are not allowed to wear any footwear in the breakfast dining area. Ironically the waiters wear them, when questioned they say they are working. The older Chinese waiters are Very very rude and arrogant to Malaysians . Never again I'll go to that resort. Maybe Malaysians should go to the other resorts.mheards Bubu resort is very good Made a mistake.

Awesome time..
It my 1st visit and we had a good time at Tuna Bay.. Everything was good.. Our front beach chalet view was perfect.. Heaven for beach lovers.. enjoy its soft sandy beaches and laid back lifestyle.. You get to snorkel right in front of the resort, which is the best damn thing to do if you've not been to Terengganu Islands before..Their staffs are very accommodating which really plays a major part in making your entire vacation stress-free.. 9 of us really enjoyed ourself.. Other than that, remember to relax, have fun and soak in everything Perhentian has to offer. Cheers!

Very nice resort with little nice chalets. Very friendly staff! We took a snorkelling package that you can order on the website of the resort, which includes transport to the island and back, all meals and 2 snorkelling trips, but I would recommend you to just book a room, and do the rest when you are there. Other than that, the snorkelling trips, breakfast and dinner were very good! Sadly, the lunch included in the package is western food and every normal person doesn't want to eat western food in Asia... Diner made up for a lot since it was 5 courses of Malay food!

Lovely three day stay on Besar at Tuna Bay - great for families, snorkeling or lazing around on the beach.
My partner and I stayed at Tuna Bay for three days, three nights and really enjoyed it. It's reasonably priced (we booked directly), has a good restaurant and sits in a lovely stretch of Main Beach on Besar. We came here after two days on Long Beach on Kecil and it's definitely the quieter of the two islands. Our standard garden facing queen chalet (room 9) was good and I found it really spacious. Our room backed into one of the beach facing chalets, so we were right next to the beach but far away from the restaurant which was good. The rooms are pretty basic, but have good bedding, a warm shower/toiletries and a safe. We had a double and single bed in our room, but not on request. If you prefer a king bed then you should probably ask when reserving. (My understanding is these rooms coming with either or) Food options on the island are fairly limited, unless you want to take a walk in the dark at dinner along a path that leads to other hotels and restaurants. We found that Tuna Club was pretty decent, serving asian, seafood and western food (though we stuck to Asian and seafood which we found delicious, so can only recommend that). The included breakfast is good and seems to change somewhat daily and included good western options including toast, eggs, pancakes etc. The beach is very pretty and has sun loungers but without cushions. During the week it feels very calm but was quite busy over the weekend (as expected). Tuna Bay has a stretch of beach directly in front of the hotel but anyone can of course swim in front. We organised to go on the Rawa Island snorkling trip with Tuna Bay and it's an absolutely must. It was one of our highlights on our trip to Malaysia. You can also snorkel on the reef directly outside of the hotel and rent snorkel equipment for 10RM a day. The staff were helpful and did their best to make us comfortable. They also helped us organise our onward travel to Taman Negara. We had a great stay and can definitely recommend at a mid-priced option on Besar.
