We are a group of 21 and we take the 3D2N (28th to 30th June) package provided by the hotel. instead of saying it as a resort, I think a chalet would be more appropriate. We take Garden View Triple and Hill View since we don't have many choices left since it's rather last minute. Booking via e-mail is a bit frustrating since the response is not that timely, however, booking by phone is always the best choice as the response is always timely and helpful. Receptionists are rather friendly and helpful, plus, they are quite fluent in English out of my expectation.
The room is very basic, don't expect too much if you go to Perhentian Island, this chalet is considered quite a nice one, wooden chalet, with a broom for you to sweep off the sand, towels, shampoo etc provided, it's considered quite a nice one. Bed quite comfy though it doesn't seem so when you first enter the chalet. Bathroom quite ok, with some smells and a few ants perrhaps. I wouldn't suggest Hill View as it is rather hot in the afternoon. However, as other reviewers say, you wouldn't have much time to stay in the room.
The location of the resort is rather perfect, located in a bay, with white sand and within 1 minute to reach the beach, it's absolutely a fantastic location, dive center is just right beside. Plus, there is a souvenir shop over there which allows you to buy souvenirs, wireless costs RM30 for 3 days, and broadband service for around 30 cents in Ringgit per minute, phone signal is rather limited however.
Meals provided (included in the package) by the resort is quite nice, it is totally out of expectation and a huge contrast compared with the exterior look of the resort.
Overall, I would highly recommend this resort if you are thinking of picking one on Perhentian Island. Do remember to bring along water as it is not provided free of charge, it's not too expensive, RM3.50 for 1 or 1.5 L mineral water.
