This was my 2nd trip to Perhentians and the 2nd time I chose to stay at Bayu Dive Lodge. This was mainly because the location is quite peaceful and the prices are reasonable, and this outweighs the fairly basic nature of the facilities. During my stay there were issues with the generator, so aircon was only available for limited hours. This didn't really affect me though as I was out diving for most of the day. The dive outfit located at the lodge is excellent and that is another compelling reason to stay here. Wifi is really bad here so it's worth considering a strategy to deal with that. Breakfast is basic and restaurant food is average. Location is at the beach front.

I stayed 4 days in Bayu. It has a great location just next to the beach. The food was Ok, but you can easily get more choices from other places next to Bayu. The best thing in Bayu is Diving sessions with Maikel and Colinda. Very affordable prices with great service compared to the other centers. They are Dutch couple, so you won't face any language barrier, No problema¡ Maikel teached me how to dive, gave me good attention in 1 to 1 session and he made sure that I learn and enjoy every time. I really like them when they come from each dive and start to talk about the fish they saw and what they did, they get so excited about it like it is their first time. They love what they do. If you are new to diving, then I highly recommend Maikel and Colinda, because you need to dive with someone you trust and you feel comfortable with 😊 And if you are an expert, then you will get the best diving buddies in Perhentian Island 🏝️😉 It was a pleasant journey with both them. Thank you guys.

Stayed in the garden cottage style chalet with air con unit for 4 nights. Loved the location on the beach and loved staying in our little chalet. Definitely needed the air con as it got extremely hot. Great little terrace to sit on and while away time in the evening. Chalet in well maintained gardens and 30 seconds onto beach and reception area. Dining here also but we thought food was overpriced in relation to café next door where we ate most of the time. Breakfast was included in our package, basic with not a lot of choice but adequate during our stay. Very helpful and friendly staff especially Manii who gave us lots of advice during our stay as for best snorkelling, walks etc. We had to pay RM 100 upfront as a deposit for the air con remote control but got this back on the last day of our stay. The chalet was very clean and the bathroom was very clean and simple with a good little electric shower. Would definitely return. We also liked that side of the island - Fauna Bay, although sea was not as clear as in some places around the island, it's so easy to get anywhere either by walking the jungle trails and water taxis.

Upon arrival we received a welcome drink, we paid deposit and got this back later. The room was better than we expected, the room was clean and there was a broom that we could use ourselves if we needed to. There was wifi, it was a weak connection but it worked. The food at the restaurant was good, for the free breakfast we got a few items that we could choose from, I chose the chocolate waffles every day and my friend had the pancakes which was also very tasty. The staff was super nice and really went out of their way to try to help you. The staff helped us get a water taxi every time we wanted to see a different part of the island. They also helped us on the last day when we were already checked out. The company that we booked a jetty with to get to the island never showed up and the staff of the lodge kept calling the company to come pick us up, in the end they arranged for us to join another company's jetty and still get off the island. I would most definitely recommend booking here.

Booked the standard fan chalet room on agoda. Cheapest option at about 105 rinngat per night incl breakfast. Was pleased to find it exceeded our expectations. The room was really just a room, wouldnt really call it a chalet, coz that conjures up notions of a stand alone hut. But it was adequate. The fan was sufficuent to give a cool night sleep. Staff were polite. Breakfast was a few choices. Nothing fancy, but adequate. Overall a nice stay, but when comparing it to islands we have toured in thailand its not on the radar. But nice enough for a chilled out stay... Remember... No atm on islands... Bring cash......
