Spa Village: Wonderful Solitude
There are 1-bedroom & 2-bedroom chalets.
Ours was the latter. It was clean and well maintained. There was a room with a king-sized bed and another with two single beds. The bathroom has a sunken bath. The main bedroom also has an iron and an ironing board, and its own tv.
Unfortunately the welcome platter of fruits and cookies came late and the maid did not replenish the supply of toiletries on the morning of the 2nd day although we stayed 3D2N.
Otherwise the service was good. The maid came in to turn down the beds nightly and left cookies as late night snack.
My daughter saw a monitor lizard climbing a tree outside of her bedroom window while the next morning, I saw a monkey breakfasting on the fruits of the tree. There are a lot of monkeys on this island but they are shy of people. Just remember not to leave doors and windows open.
Very quiet and you hardly see anyone. Has pools exclusively for use of chalet guests. Friendly staff on duty the whole day at pools although they are mostly unused. More opportunities of watching wild life here.

Adventure Village: Affordable Accomodation
Besides chalets, the Jerejak Resort & Spa has hotel accomodations that range from twin-sharing to those that four can stay.
The hotel is cheaper and is near the lobby. It has a big swimming pool for adults and a smaller for children. The children's pool has slides.

Jerejak Resort and Spa: Forgotten Isle
Very friendly staff and good service. The chalet my family and I stayed in was clean and well maintained. There was a welcome platter of fruits and cookies. There is a sunken bath for those who may want to soak themselves but the toiletries are of a smaller range than in other 4-star hotels. We also did not get a fresh supply of toiletries in the second morning although we stayed 3D-2N. The maid comes in to turn down the beds every night and leaves cookies in the master bedroom as snack.
Best if you stay in the chalets (Spa Village) which has its own pools, away from the bustling crowd who stay in the hotel (Adventure Village). Nature's haven with bird chirpings, insect hums and lots of monkeys that roam freely on the island but shy away from human contact.
Reasonable charges for activities like flying fox, abseiling and paint ball shooting but it does seem absurd that they add a charge for crossing the suspension bridge to get to the starting place for flying fox when you can walk across for free if you don't do the flying fox.
Independent trekking is limited although the island has a number of small hills.
Jerejak island is believed to be the first place Francis Light set foot on when he came to take over Penang island from the Sultan of Kedah. Immigrants were quarantined here and later, the island was a leprosy camp. Following that, Jerejak became the Alcatraz of Malaysia. Ironically, this uneasy past history has helped the island to stay well preserved from development.
Situated between mainland of Seberang Perai and Penang island and it can be seen clearly when you cross the Penang bridge from the mainland. Close proximity to Penang island, easy access, free shuttle ferry service (for guests) between Jerejak and Penang. It runs daily from 6.30 am (from Jerejak) till 12.30 am (from Penang) . The jetty at Penang is near Queensbay Mall, the latest shopping complex with a wide variety of food.
