Reviewed 25 April 2013

Over a month ago I sent an email to the resort's manager Jasbeer (to the email address he specifically asked on facebook to direct all questions regarding resort bookings etc to.
In the email I asked him some basic questions about availability, transfers, cost, etc.
After not getting any reply from him 2 weeks later I sent him another email. It's now been a month and I still never got a reply from them. Neither of the emails have been rejected by the provider or sent back.
This remains a very bad first impression which absolutely doesn't feel inviting. I may check other resorts or Tioman Island instead.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled solo

The resort is 1 of 3 on Pulau Besar. The accomodation is fair and clean. Get the beach view chalet as the price difference is only around RM50.

The staff are super friendly espescially a guy called Adam who really assisted us with our queries. Also the counter staff Liza and Wati.

However for those in a family, try to bring some backup food like biscuits and munchies. The food on the island ie. all the other resorts are quite expensive. But there is a little shack cafe next to the resort which is cheaper.

Room Tip: Go for the beach view.

stayed here 4 days and 3 nights. this resort is under the management of Sari Pacifica Resorts and Spa. been staying with their resorts for the past 4 years..and we enjoyed our stay . we are a family with 3 young childrens infact with 1 infant (3mths) and everything went smoothly and all my kids enjoy their stay.

staffs put their efforts to the fullest just to pleased their guest. rates here are affordable since it include fullboard. though there is no TV in the room, but (yeah who needs a tv when u have plenty of activities to do on the beach and sea) it doesnt not matter.

credits to the management office who always tried their best to accomondate their guests :)

highly recommended..

if you are an island lover then u should also try other sari pacifica resorts such as in Sibu Island, Redang and Lang Tengah Island!

Room Tip: book into a seaview room where u will apreciate more :)

We went to this hotel in a low period, so it was almost empty. A couple of days we were the only guests and there was a feeling of exclusiveness :). The food was very very tasty, the stuff was friendly and attentive, prices were good.
The only sad thing during that trip were sand flies. Their bites provoked strong itching and it took enough long time for healing.

We spent a long weekend here with a fantastic group of friends. The resort was everything we could ever have hoped for - fantastic beach, great food, nice breazy bar area, good accommodation and marvelously expansive areas.

Whilst at the resort, there was nobody else around except for our group so the whole resort was ours to enjoy.

The water was incredibly clear and the coral reef 30 metres off the beach provided great viewing of some amazing tropical fish.

Each day we would start with a run along the beach, followed by a great breakfast and then straight down to the beach, where we would spend all day swimming, playing and generally having a relaxing time. In between the bar is always there for a cooling drink.

Lunch was a great buffet.

Would recommend Besar to anybody, except if you are travelling alone as it may be possible that you will not meet too many other travellers when you get there. Coming from Singapore, as soon as we arrived, we felt like we were a million kilometres from anywhere.

Room Tip: Fantastic rooms are available close to the bar right on the beach

Resort is pretty decent, amazing and quiet beach. The resort got their own beach chairs and tent, so there is no need to worry about paying anything more for the rental of the chairs.

Afforable price for food. GREAT services from staff and they were very helpful. They even went an extra mile by sourcing for bus tickets from Mersing to Singapore (which we couldn't have got back on time without their help).

There isnt wifi or tv in the room and the live band was petty loud at times. Nevertheless, its a great experience if you want a relax and chill trip with nothing much to do.
