Description:

Perhentian Island has more than 20 dive spots that are suitable for all levels of experience.

New divers can have a nice relaxing reef dive while be amazed by the brilliantly colored tropical fish and coral. Experienced divers can enjoy the freedom of spectacular reef diving, adventurous wreck diving and deep dives in an extremely idyllic and laid back setting.

We teamed up with our neighbors Panorama Chalet to offer value for money Dive + Room packages which can be found on our website.

Please note the accommodation provided is of basic beach-hut style. All standard rooms which are used for Dive + Room Packages are simple, but clean wooden bungalows for two people with fan, mosquito net and a bathroom with cold water showers. Rooms are set on a shady hill with lots of native trees just seconds walk to the beautiful beach.

As Pulau Perhentian has no mains power, generators are used to supply power to the chalets which normally runs from 7pm-8am and 12noon-3pm.

Panorama has a village feel with the chalets, great restaurant selling local and western meals from 8am-10pm daily, a small shop selling fruits, cold drinks and snacks and of course Panorama Diver.

Everything you need is right here!

Was planned to stay here for 3 days but wanted to extend my stay! Very friendly personnel and the location is perfectly right in the middle of all beach restaurants! The dive spots are amazing plus the price is good with the quality. I would recommend going here before taking any other dive resort on this island!!

Had 7 dives from Friday to Sunday... and everything was superb. Dive masters and all the staff very friendly and accommodating. They took care of everything and more.

This review is a little delayed as I dived with Panorama last July but I did do 10 dives with them so worth a few comments. It was a fantastic experience for a few reasons: The diving - a wide variety of interesting dive sites with pinnacles, wrecks and even a really fun topography dive (it's called T3 - do... More

I had such a great time with Panorama the people are wonderful and the dives were all amazing. The DMs and instructors know what they were doing and they are super professional and knowledgeable. Aside from that, I understood that the accommodation is not directly theirs, but keep in mind that if you're doing the dorms, the rooms are okay... More

That was my first dive, I was panicked and too scared to dive. I remember that after 10 mins, I asked Dee(my diving instructor) to cut me from the dive for me. But She was really helpful and encouraged me to do the dive. The dive was pretty amazing. Dee was awesome and friendly. Cheers, Sam

We had a great time, saw so many fish and beautiful coral. We were even lucky enough to see a black-tipped shark and several turtles. These people know what they're doing and start every fun-dive with a briefing, this is so helpful and makes you enjoy the dive even more! Housing (we had a 2p fan-room) was very basic, simple...
