Had a great time at Tuna Bay Resort. Placed on the most beautiful beach it's hard not to be satisfied. The sunsets are incredible. The staff was friendly and helpful. I can surely recommend this place!

Ground staff are super friendly and smiley, guys who took our bags were friendly. Mostly all of the staff were lovely except the main guy in the restaurant - he was so rude to us from the start, intimidating at best with his attitude towards us. Really dampened our time here. We saw how he treated others as well as...

Tuna Bay was a good compromise for us being 2 couples with adjoining rooms, one fronting the beach to enjoy sunsets on the porch and pre-breakfast dips with the swarms of fish right in front of our bungalow. Good house cleaning, excellent restaurant, top class cocktails and much appreciated service: Particular thanks to Tony and Ina for their permanent good...

I was been in this resort this summer. I've spent one week with my wife. The location is really enchanting. The room are very simple, Inside there aren't too much forniture. The things inside are very old. The food at the restaurant is good and cheap.

Really enjoyed our stay there. Transfer to the resort is made easy and stress free. The rooms are basic but clean and the food is really good. There's a reef out the front which is good for a quick dip in the ocean. For the boat cruises we just walked around and asked a few guys how much it would...

Room on the beach... such a pleasure to sit watching sunrise and sunset on the verandah overlooking the sea. If you want relaxation and peace and quiet this is for you... If you need entertainment this is not for you. Fab food, fab staff, fab service, a true get away from it all, hope it never gets spoilt. The staff...

No roads and no cars are to be found on this jungle-island so the only way to travel is by boat. This resort is situated on the coast and has its own beach with white sand and coral reef. Small taxiboats will get you quickly to the islands other scenic beaches. The resort is simple but has a great restaurant...

Excellent place to stay with exceptional communication. Had to alter booking due to the monsoon rains arriving earlier and the staff were considerate and accommodating. Was planning to organise own transfers which would have cost less i.e. Own taxi and boat to the island,however to save 10MYR wasn't worth the hassle or the wait. Tuna bay organised the entire transfer...

We enjoyed our week's stay in this resort with our teenage boys. We mainly came to dive and relax, and there actually is not much else to do. But the resort is set up very well, the rooms comfortable and clean, location right on the beach, the food in the restaurant varied and good, and the diving very interesting. However,...
