BATU BATU is a rustic private island resort set amongst coconut groves, rocky outcrops and fine sand beaches on the tropical, uninhabited island of Pulau Tengah, Malaysia in the South China Sea. This simple resort is built from a variety of hard woods in the style of a Malay “kampung” or village. BATU BATU welcomes families with children. Whilst on Pulau Tengah, adults and children alike can enjoy the island’s eight white sandy beaches, snorkel or dive amongst its colourful coral reefs and kayak or walk around its 3km perimeter. The open-sided pavilion restaurant and bar has 270-degree views across the sea and serves delicious European and Asian dishes. Guests can choose to relax with a cold drink at the Beach Bar, soak in the sea, play on the large white sand beaches or embark on an adventure through the island’s dense forest.

We just spent 4 nights at this amazing resort. The boat ride over was easy. Greeted at the wharf and taken to our beach villa. The location is incredible. Staff were wonderful and in particular Joji and staff at the restaurant. They could not have been more friendly,

We came for 4 nights in the middle of September. The landscape of the Island is stunning and all of the buildings//structures are sympathetic to the surroundings which is great. The food was absolutely superb, great choice every day and special dietary requirements catered for

It was our 4th time at Batu Batu. And yes the place is beautiful, the food is good and it is a short drive away from Singapore. But do not expect that they care for patrons. On our 3rd trip, we had a Villa next to the jungle and I got allergies to the mosquito bites. Allergies

We wanted an island retreat with beautiful beach and somewhere nearer and we came across this resort from someone's twitter account. We did like research for 2 days and we just could'nt wait to book because the rooms runs out fast. So we booked the beach room and we are lucky

Hi LW, Thank you for your interest to stay with us. Our meal plan cycle is based on the number of nights you stay with us so e.g. you were to stay 3D2N, we will only charge 2 cycles of RM 290 /adult (RM 580 in total) and RM 145 /child (RM 290 in total). Returned scheduled boat transfers cost RM 140 /adult and RM 95 /child. If our boat schedules do not comply to your traveling plans, then you do have the option to hire a private charter but this is subjected to boat availability and tide levels at the river mouth at the hour requested. There are certain hours in the day where tides are too low for boats to sail and out from the river mouth. If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact us directly via email or phone and we will be happy to help.

how is the network on the island?
Dear Sylvia, Thank you for your interest to stay with us on our little island. Yes, we do provide free wifi at Batu Batu although it is not always perfect given our island location… In December 2015 we updated the technology used to bring internet to the island (beaming it over from mainland) and have found that it works best if we restrict wifi to the public areas of the resort. This means that wifi is in general much more stable but we no longer provide wifi in individual villas. Should you like to use mobile datas instead, local telcos like Maxis and Celcom works best on the island but as the communication towers are located on other island around us, there may be certain parts of the resort where you may only get little signal. If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to drop us an email or give us a call. We look forward to having you with us at Batu Batu. Best regards, Reservations Team @ Batu Batu

"I would stay in the ocean view rooms between the jetty and restaurant if I were to return."
"Ask for rooms closer to the restaurant for a shorter walk (if you don't require much privacy)"
"Jungle room quiet, set back so no one passing.CA very snug, literally JUST for sleeping 2 kids on bunkbeds. Felt claustrophobic."
"The beach Villas are definitely the best for families."
"N1-N2 and S1-S5 are closer to the main restaurant"
