Bayu is an excellent place. I went there twice for a total of more than two weeks. For those of you who like relaxed, friendly atmosphere, simple good food and DIVING in awesome spots, this is definitely the perfect choice.
Bayu combines quality for price accommodation with trustable diving centre.
In terms of accommodation there is a whole range of possibilities: from the fan room,to standard AC room, to garden view, and sea view room, price increases according to the type of room but remains in the range between 75-220 RM. The first time I have been trying all of them because it was always fully booked, as I booked last minute I ended up to fill the empty spots ;)
As for the diving centre, the staff is great: if you need to get the open water certification Pierre is the instructor you want to work with, very precise and focused on safety (I took my advanced course with him). For fun dives Guislain and One are definitely the best guides you can find in Perenthians - Batu Butuk is the recommended divesite for sea tunnels and noodies, temple of the sea if you prefer bigger animals, schools of fish, reef diving and floating in the blue.
The beach is nice and very spread out, never crowded. If you feel like diversifying there's a nice walk through the jungle that leads to other two beaches in less than 20 minutes.
