We have 7 deluxe garden view and 2 deluxe sea view rooms, 4 superior rooms, 2 sea view wood chalets, 3 sea view green reflective mirror rooms, 6 dormitories and camping site. We provide hot water shower and air condition for rooms and chalets. Our operation started since September 2016. Hence, we cannot promise you luxurious facility, however, we are located on a great location. This resort is managed by private individuals and not a private company. In order for us to reach luxurious style resort level, we need to be at least 5 years in the operation. We target to be one of the luxurious hotel with swimming pool in year 2020. We are one of the resorts on Perhentian Island which operate during off season (November until March the following year) with 12 hours electricity while 24 hours electricity operation during full season (April until October in the same year). Come to visit our place and experience the beauty of the ocean. For additional activities to book in advance, go to our website as provided. Looking forward for your visit. This resort is also not deemed fit for those who want luxury style of stay in an accommodation. We are 3-star rated beach resort located in a more than 5-star rated beach front.

we spent four days with our 2 daughters. Rooms are good for the price and the welcome is perfect. The hotel is conveniently located to the beach, which is never crowded. There are several restaurants around where we have eaten and most of them were very good

In August my wife and I stayed with our baby for 6 days at Empire Resort aka Eco Marine Resort aka Big Island Teluk Dalam. The stay was so disappointing that a month later I take the time to write this review. Please read this before you book. First, the 'resort' is located on the most beautiful part of the beach. Magnificent! Unfortunately they know how to ruin the rest. A few things that made our stay unpleasant: * Reservations: MUST be prepaid for the entire stay. Otherwise our reservation would be invalid. The manager just failed to make us pay in advance while she talked about it all the time. * Check-in: Once arrived our room was not ready yet, and we had to wait another half an hour from the manager. Nothing happened to our room in that half hour. The manager was only on her phone. We received no proof of registration, which they asked for when checking out. * Cleanliness rooms: Our room (for which we paid 280 RM !!) was dirty. Ants everywhere, sand on the floor and the bathroom was not cleaned. We ourselves have collected 4 staff members and have to manage to clean up and have had to roll up our sleeves ourselves. * Restaurant: Something goes wrong with every order in the restaurant. The kitchen is unhygienic, the vegetables are rotting in the fridge in the general area. Don't eat here. * Staff: The staff has no idea what they are doing and is not trained for working in the hospitality industry. The 19-year-old (....) manager also clearly has no training in hospitality. She loses her people, she insults, is incompetent. Unfortunately the staff is so incompetent that you need the manager for everything you ask for. As a result, things are going very badly, and everything takes a very long time.The cup of coffee on the photo below was there 24 hours, just nothing is cleared after our breakfast. * Maintenance: The maintenance of the buildings is poor. The garden is not beautiful, so 'Garden View' is not special. See some photos that I have attached. Geen enkele wc-stortbak was in tact, see photo. * Conclusion: because the place is so beautiful and we have used the services of the 'resort' as little as possible, we had a good time. This resort does not provide any service and will ruin your vacation. Because you have to pay in advance, you are attached to them and you cannot leave. All other accommodations on the beach do not recommend you stay here, due to the bad reputation (their name changes very often due to this). If you want to enjoy this beautiful place, stay with the neighbors of Flora Bay, for example, that was a well-run resort. * Finally: I asked for a modified bill before checking out in advance (we had slept an extra night for logistical reasons). The manager forgot to charge that night entirely so we were very grateful for her 'discount' which she unknowingly gave. It eased our pain a bit.

Hi Men A, Come again next time because October is not the season where maintenance can be done. However, when you were here I believe if you lodge any complaint, any of my staff will do his or her best to help you to clean or fulfill your requirement regarding the room. Thank you

The beach out front is great and the owner is really nice but the room was too expensive for what it was and the communal bathroom didn’t have a sink or mirror. There was also no toilet paper! Plus when we woke up there was what looked like mice droppings in the bathroom.

Absolutely the worst experience in Malaysia!! We got a dirty shack paid in advance a helluva lot no money back for our “double superior”. Pictures speak for themselves!!! Only asset: the beach in front of this place is amazing! Look harder to get another place if you land there with no reservations whatsoever. They just don’t deserve guests. Overpriced! We give one circle just because you can’t submit the review with no circle...
