Our room is just right in front of the white sandy beach! With the closed proximity, we could spent time morning or evening or night enjoying the nature and let the sound of the waves accompany good night sleep. There are many squirrels and monkeys around the area wondering and looking for food... and they meant no harm. For our 3 days 2 nite stay, we pre-booked and paid upfront for full meal plan throughout the stay then we realized there were restaurants within walking distance. One more good point to make is the transport between mainland to the Island was well managed by the hotel

PIR has beautiful beaches and clear sea water. the food is also delicious and there are many options.Room are just comfortable.
staff very helpful and always smile especialy from the restaurant & receptionist.pool clean. only the resort area has dry leaves as in ever swept. there is a new construction underway in the starting area to the PIR. looks unattractive with such seemingly irregular conditions. overall, we enjoy staying at PIR & will come again!

We stayed 3 nights in PIR. Relatively expensive, but that is true for almost all accommodations on the Island. Cabins ar OK, nothing special but clean and having all necessities. Park is nice. The beach is superb, snorkel and diving possibilities available against very good prices. No need to arrange tours elsewhere. Staf at reception was nice and friendly. However, somethings went wrong as we had to move to another cabine because of a broken aircon. This was not in the system and yes, then your room is not cleaned and this needs to be asked 3 times. Ok no worries. What is really bad is the restaurant. No alcohol, a pity but it is as it is, but the food is extremely bad and expensive. The breakfast is super simple, a fried noodle without any taste or a scrambled egg witch can be used to seal a hole in your wall. A cola is Rm7, 400m further half of this! The neighbors restaurant is way better with much larger dishes, at least 10x better tastes and against lower prices. Also a pity that the beautiful terrace does not have a bar. If you promote yourself as a top resort the create certain expectations which were not fullfilled. We will not come back again in this overpriced two star resort with zero star kitchen.

Perhentian Island Resort has gorgeous beach and environment, however, plenty things were disappointing.

The confirmation reservation email indicated that the earliest boat transfer from K. Besut Jetty to Perhentian is 9am. Unfortunately PIR office at K. Besut Jetty open around 9.10am. The arrangement for the boat transfer was chaotic.

Check-in at PIR around 11am, check-in took very long time for no reason. We chilled at beach deck after check-in as room is not ready.

We snorkeling in-front of Resort. We saw stingray, crown fish, snappers, beak fish, turtle, grouper, parrot fish, crab, sea cucumbers etc. Perfect for family retreat.

Placed order first lunch around 12:45pm, and it took nearly an hour for my son’s fish & chips being served. Almost every meals during our stay experienced long waiting, the waiting staff just do not care at all. Only one Nescafé machine and caused long queues to get a cuppa. Sadly, it went malfunction.

Monitor lizards, red tails squirrels, white-face monkeys roaming around the resort which is beautiful. It serves good chill out ambient for kids even adults.

Room desperately needed renovation. Furniture’s chipped out here and there in many corners. Safe-box is not screwed and fixed, so wonder what it serve for? Basin clogged but the maintenance staff fixed it at very short time, thumbs up for the guys. Housekeeping is terrible, not replace toiletries for a day out of four day during our stay. Drainage in bathroom has smell in night time. There was a bowl and spoon at the entrance deck of our room since day 1 check in, and it remains there even till we check out.

Without WiFi at room is ok, but will be please install some WiFi access points at communal area like restaurant and beach deck.

The resort do not sell beer and other alcohol drinks. If you like a booze, can go to The Barat Restaurant which around 10 minutes walk from the resort.

There was an accident, which a fellow guest dive from the jetty and hurt himself. I and another two fellow guests helped the guy and lifted him to the boat and sent to Perhentian Kecil Island for treatment. The guy sent to K. Besut for further treatment due to limited and basic medical services in the island. The resort does not provide training to their staff in handling emergencies. I have asked the reception staff for two consecutive morning after the guest sent to hospital, to follow up the condition of the fellow guest. Unfortunately, the front desk staff replied same answer which they do not know at all.

The resort has beautiful Malay architecture which is good selling point. However, it need upgrading and renovation, and more essentially to retrain it staff in hospitality.

For me, the resort has perfect location but ruins by the hospitality.

Hi Yen ! Thank you for your interests and inquiry. Our Family rooms comes with 1 double + 1 single bed. Another extra bed is possible for the room as well. However the date you requested is not available unfortunately. Our other rooms come with either 2 single beds or 1 double bed. Similarly, 1 extra bed or extra mattress is possible but to have 2 extra mattresses in the same room would not be comfortable. Personally, I would recommend to go for 2 rooms and we would try our level best to put both the rooms side by side. Hope this info helps and feel free to email us directly should you need any further assistance. For booking, you may reserve through our website directly for immediate confirmation. Many thanks and have a pleasant weekend ! Best wishes - SS Tan
