We first booked for 4 nights as we had been travelling for 3 weeks. It is about an hours journey by boat from the mainland . On arrival we were shown to our chalet. You have a large bedroom a large bathroom and a decent balcony. There is aircon and slow and intermittent wi fi. None of the chalets are... More

We have been to Perhentian 3 times and decided to stay at Abdul's for the first time. We always stay at Tuna Bay but the rooms are so expensive there now. No regrets whatsoever! Adbul was a good choice for my family of 2 adults and 3 kids . We took the garden room for the first night as they... More

We stay 3 nights at Abdul's Chalet and loved every minute of it. We had a standard garden room which isn't really in a garden just faces onto the row of chalets in front. We where expecting a beach hut with basic amenities but instead we got a room that was very clean with a big bathroom and free toiletries... More

We have stayed there for 4 nights in early June, and really enjoyed our stay. The chalet was very clean (but don't expect much in terms of decoration). We had a sea view chalet, which means that we were on the beach, which is practically privatised for the chalets because there is not really people coming from elsewhere on that... More

We spent 4 nights in a family garden view chalet with 2 kids (7 and 9). This was a semi-detached 2 storey house with 4 rooms in the second row. We had our room in the ground floor. Since it was not a separated house,as the sea-view bungalows are, it was a bit too tight next to the neighbours..(that's why... More

We had fantastic days here. The staff were so nice and helpful. The place is indescribably beautiful. The water is full of fish. On the downside a lot of people from other resorts come here to swim. Therefore it sometimes seems quite crowded at the beach.

This place is an absolute gem. Bungalows on the beach, clean, nice little veranda, bathroom with hot and cold shower, very good food in the restaurant. Bathroom needs renovation and you can't find any alcohol at Abduls'. You can have a beer or a glass of wine at Tuna Bay about 100 meters from Abduls chalets or you can buy... More

Abdul's Chalet has long tradition on Perhentian Besar. He started small with only some chalets and improved over the years his chalets from the outside and outside as well as offers larger food menu and boat shuttle. This of cause is known by many people and Adul's is therefore mostly fully booked. We were lucky to get two chalets for... More
