Overall for this hotel is average. Nice beach, package breakfast is good, meal is tasty. Overall cleanliness for this hotel is average. Swimming pool and room toilet are not really clean. Public wifi at Lobby was very slow and very difficult to connect.

Rooms at arwana are horribly maintained, staff have no regard for their customers whatsoever, hotel manager behaves like a mob boss, they charge for ice, food is horrible and the only entertainment at night is by the reception playing movies over projector. For better food & friendly service ... Lookout for restaurant mandalika along the beach ... About 100 meters...

No wifi, fridge, tv, drinks, hairdryer in the room. Aircon is not working well despite after maintenance service. Houseflies on the food, cracked and dirty cups at the buffet restaurant unacceptable. Swimming pool and beach ok. Hot and filtered water available at the lobby.

We stayed in Kuala Besut the previous evening after flying from KL to Kota Bahru. Our package at the Arwana included boat transfers from the jetty. A very smooth process and suprised us that we were the only ones on board (Family, two adults and 7 year old girl). We arrived onto the jetty at the Arwana and check in...

During our trip through Malaysia we have been on a rather thigh budget which makes it even more disappointing that Arwana Eco Beach resort has been our most expensive but unfortunately also the worst accommodation during our entire trip. Upon our arrival the first think we encountered was a filthy bathroom, which wouldn't have been a problem but finding yourself...

Arwana resort is located on the nicest beach of the island. Very relaxed, totally the sixties, quite some local bars and restaurants, which you do not find so nicely on the other beaches. The resort itself is not too bad... But that says it all. Take care to have the cabins direct on the beach, if not the stay may...

Stayed here for three nights. Checked in and was told the room we booked wasn't available for the first night so we were given a cheaper room by the pool. We're also told we couldn't get a refund but we could have a buffet lunch and dinner. The pool was noisy and the rooms are dark and damp smelling. Bathrooms...

4 ratings only for the pool. Rooms are just okay. But the swimming pool is great and clean. This resort is expensive, rooms are clean but not up to the mark, food is good but on the expensive side again. The main attraction is the swimming pool and though you are at the beach only but this beach is not...

We booked this hotel on very short notice because it was the only one free. The other statements were not that good so we didn't expect much. But we had a very clean and lovely room with a huge veranda directly on the beach with a stunning view. It is also located on a very nice beach. I would absolutely...

Nice enough given that if you're heading to the Perhentian Islands then I imagine you aren't going to be spending your time in the room. We had a deluxe room for three people which was a good size with air conditioning, breakfast buffet was also included which was nice. There is also a pool but we spent all our time...
