Best beach in the island

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 21, 2014

Title of this accommodation is a bit confusing ,it should be the Perhentian Island Resort ,not Perhentian Paradise Resort.
We arrived here , on 18 April 2014, quite a long journey ,from Bandung to Kuala Lumpur 2.05 hours flight , overnight at KL ,early flight to Kota Bharu 1 hour flight ,then continued by land transfer 1 hour, and then board the speedboat ,half an hour.Costs us RM 390 return trip, all arranged from the Perhentian Island Resort, they replied our mail lightning quick.
Paid $ 250.65 for a 2 nights stay ,3 adults ,extra bed and breakfast included check in and out was easy and fast , we arrived early, they didn't allow us to go to our room ( check in time is 3.00 pm , check out is 12.00 pm).So we drop our luggage on the front desk and go for a swim and snorkel.The restaurant could not serve lunch at the time we arrived , lunch just can be served on 12.30 pm (buffet lunch is pricey RM 55 per person).
The beach in front of this resort is clearly the best among other beaches in Perhentian Islands,forboth Besar and Kecil.Clear turquoise water , good visibility , and not far from the beach ,there's a house reef , with stunning marine lives, we met a Moray Eel ,Huge parrot fish by just snorkeling !
We had our lunch at neighboring resort , and got back to the hotel to claim our room, they gave us our room on 1.00 pm.
Nice bungalow , well equipped , working hot shower , ice cold AC, Small fridge and nice view to the pool from our veranda. Complete bathroom amenities.Quite clean.
We had such a good time here , and in addition we saw a lot of interesting animals within the resort.Squirrels running happily on the trees , 2 huge water monitor lizards lived in the pond, flying squirrels , bats , lizards , and one morning we were visited by a cute family of black monkeys !.I would like to thank PIR , for preserving nature and animals.
On 2 consecutive days ,we went for a snorkeling trip ,lead by Mr.David. On Friday the snorkeling trip started on 3.00 pm, went to Tanjung Basi ,Tiga Ruang ,and Marine Park.2nd day we went to Shark Point (must do attraction!!), Teluk Keke , and Turtle watching just in front of the hotel.For you info : in front of PIR is the only spot where every day snorkeler would go to see the Sea turtle !
Were we satisfied ? The answer is a definite YES , and we will come back !

Room - air conditioned, nice size.
Food, good variety to choose from, unlimited drinks only at meal times.
Facility - Tennis court, local dive centre
private beach, great for night walks

Easily Accessible, you can walk to other resorts from here.

Staff - not too friendly. Remember to bring your meal vouchers every single time, or you go hungry. no exceptions.

Unique Quality: Ice-cold air conditioned room, a fantastic feature :D

Resort with private bay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 1, 2006

It's the most expensive hotel in this island, but worth it. It's located in a 'private' bay where the beach is all on your own.

Unique Quality: The food is excellent, the view is spectacular, the staffs are friendly (maybe most of em are Indonesians! Hehehe!)

Suitable for Families

by written on May 30, 2006

For those coming with families, big groups or those who are looking for a quieter vacation, Perhentian Island Resort will be suitable for you.

Located on Perhentian Besar Island, this resort has it's own private beach which is nice and sandy. The water is crystal clear and great for swimming as there not a lot of corals around. So it's pretty safe even for kids to swim in the water.

Unique Quality: A little more high-range as compared to most accomodations on the island, this resort provides more facilities to it's occupants such as a swimming pool, a tennis court, 24-hour electricity, hot shower, air conditioning and karaoke.

Thus, the room rates are also a lot higher which is in the range of RM200 - RM350 per night.

However, they also offer holiday packages which can be a pretty good deal.
