“Ok.”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Unfortunately, for the 4 nights I spent here with my boyfriend I was quite ill. I had just been on a drip at the nearby doctor on the mainland (who was great!) so spent most of my time inside the chalet! Quite a few creatures were around, mainly geckos and we had a big problem with ants on the first night where hundreds of them got into my backpack but we sorted it out and never saw them again. Restaurant doesn't open until 8pm at night for dinner which was a bit annoying but we just went elsewhere. Beach was nice but we were unlucky with it being cloudy most of the time we were there. I can't comment on the quality of the food as I was unable to eat much but my boyfriend said it was good. It wasn't overly cheap and the shower was cold but you were literally opening your doors onto a great beach so that is what you are paying for. Plus nothing is very cheap on the perhentians.

The price is very reasonable for what is provided. As a student in Malaysia, I found a very affordable package for a trip there with my friends. You can find the link here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=214161498626998

The staffs were very friendly and honest. Once I left my phone in the cafe and my friend left his laptop there. He was so nice to keep it for us. The stay was a very pleasant memory. The food was good too. And wifi provided at the cafe.

The room I stayed in was small but clean and enough for two person. And the 4 person room of my friends was so spacious. I stayed in the room without air cond, but it is very chilly at night that we think that we don't need it.

First of all, Speed Boat Transfer enjoyed best when sit with driver. Supervisor who manage activity is Gong Lee, superb staff there, manage snorkeling trip for us, gives best suggestion, helpful and superb active on entertaining us. Our snorkeling guide, Nano, the best guide, who will bring us to see best attractions. He make sure we gets the best. He also bring us to turtle island to look for turtle. The turtle is at the bottom of the sea, he dived in and get photos for us. Besides, he snorkeling together with us, and guide us til the end.

Moreover, their food is wonderful, and I bet you that you gonna satisfy with their food. Their staff is always ready at your service except for housekeeping. No turn down service, but you may request to if you want it. Cozy and cold air conditioned sea view room, Some slight maintenance needed to clear off the insects if possible. Best view with best staffs I can see while walking around there seeing other chalet. Nano do bring us to look for Nemo at night which I dont see any other chalet is doing.

Always prepare breads before you go, as the fishes there loves bread and they will show up aggresively if they saw breads. Don't have to be surprise which no alcoholic drinks and the price of items are expensive.

Overall, greatly recommended chalet, and do look for Gong Lee and Nano for assistance, they are the best and should be given compliment.

Room Tip: Bring toiletries, they only provide soap Do ask for turndown Bring breads and water Sunburn cream...

We stayed in middle of May 2014 for 3D2N, booked 2 rooms sea view with aircond. The room are very basic without freezer, kettle and TV. Small room but enough for 2 persons.

Clean bathroom and room condition are average. Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner are excellent but for BBQ menu, below expectation. Need to improve.

The chalet offer you peace & quite surrounding.

Room Tip: Air cond room with sea view much more better.

We check in on Samudra Beach resort At Perhentian island ( besar ) or Big Island
on 27 april April. Suppose to check out on 29 April, but we have to check out on 28 April.

Reason - because we book on Chalet A Frame with no aircond, just normal small fan.
Believe me, dont take this A FRAME Fan Chalet unless you are very open and tough guy.
The room is small and very very very hot, repeat very hot. The bed is terrible. The matress is awful. Lots of ants inside the room. Very poor bathroom, And the lighting inside the chalet is very dark. we cannot sleep for 1 night, and the next day we check out , even we have pay for 3d 2n.

IF you plan to go Samudra, dont take the A FRAME fan chalet, take the aircond.

Good thing is - THE Restaurant.

Food is nice, and price is very very reasonable with the services ! Please try the Fresh Orange
and the Nasi Goreng Sotong ( Squid Fried Rice ).

Room Tip: Dont Take the A FRAME Fan Chalet even if you look for budget.

We stayed in march for 2 nights. Booked family room with 2 double bed. The room was clean but not so comfy since it is so small, but then we only used it for sleeping!. we took a package that include meals.. Wifi free. Staff of this chalet were so welcoming and always ready to help. They gave free boat transfer to small perhentian island for my son to go for Friday prayer. There are many other chalets nearby. Awana is just next door. The chalet for 2 infront on this beach is superb...this is a lovely place to rest..the jungle track nearby will get you to the other side of the island reaching biggest resort on the island. .3 days were filled with snockeling, canoeing..

We stayed with Samudra for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! It is a family-run affair, and they are lovely people.

We had a package that included all meals and we were very well looked after indeed! Meals were definitely a high point for us. When you take a seat in the dining area the lovely staff members bring out a myriad of yummy dishes just for your table. Among our faves were the garlic eggs, Malaysian style chicken soups, fried noodles, and seafood! Such a treat not to worry about what to order etc - made a nice change.

We booked a beachfront chalet, and were pleased that we did. They are literally a stone's throw to the water. Aircon was fab, bathroom was clean and new, facilities very basic but all in order.

We made a nice rapport with the family from the start - so it was a very welcoming and easy stay for us.

Highly recommend!
