Perhentian Tuna Bay Island Resort is located on the south west coast of Pulau Perhentian Besar (Big Island), a quiet, untouched part of the island surrounded by tropical jungle, on a broad expanse of powdery white sand. The resort commands a breathtaking view of Pulau Perhentian Kecil (Small Island) and the South China Sea, right on your doorstep.

While the rooms were clean, the service at the restaurant was quite lousy and the rooms were absolutely nothing like the website shows!!! Aircon barely worked, and was noisy. Our holiday was great, and the beach near the hotel is wonderful, but hotel wasn't up to the mark.

Hai Anekket,the 1st week of March.The Corals won’t be beautiful cos it’s just after the monsoon season.But if you just want swimming and relax,then it’s good cos less visitors.But if you want snorkeling,when water is clear with many fishes and beautiful Corals.The corals starts recovering n growing by May,June,July,August,Sept is best.Mid October,sometimes the water is not so clear because of the strong waves. Hope this helps you to decide Enjoy 😊
