With most of Malaysia blighted by large scale soulless hotel chains, finding a beautifully designed and family run hotel like beach box was a true delight. The high quality of the rooms, the beautiful location, the food, the extremely friendly and genuine hospitality - everything about our visit was outstanding. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

I booked a last minute trip to the Beachbox & travelled with my 2 boys to stay last week. From the first communication, Yuen was responsive and helpful. She guided me on everything I needed to do to travel from KL including boat transfers and parking. She took care of the details - I simply had to get in the car and drive to the Kuala Besut jetty! On arrival at the Beachbox we were welcomed like family. Nina was super helpful in organizing activities including a snorkeling and fishing trip. The food during our stay was exceptional. Generous serves, fresh and delicious. They even specially prepared the catch from our fishing trip. Iā€™m still raving to my friends about how amazing it was. We stayed in the family room which was perfect for our needs. It was clean, beds comfortable and overall had a relaxed and homely vibe. Nina, Nico, Yuen and the team were so warm and friendly and checked in on us regularly during our stay. I have to say it was truly one of the best experiences I have had in Malaysia. We loved our time at the Beachbox and would highly recommend it to anyone. Amazing service and exceptional value for money .

We travelled with family and friends in May 21. We had fantastic time with BeachBox team. Great spot at Perhentian, very attentive team and personnel touch by the management and all the beach box team. Amazing time, snorkelling and the team did everything possible , went beyond to ensure we had nice time, planned snorkelling trips and Michelin starts class food served . There is no better place to visit and will definitely be back. Very nice cozy clean rooms with all required, pleasant terrace with sunset view and fanstastic team which makes it unforgettable vacations . The best place at Perhentian.

We had an amazing experience here thanks to the crew Nico, Nina, May, Halim & Kamarul. Everything about our stay there was superb. The room, the restaurant, the food, the hospitality, it was more than what we expected. The best thing about the resort is its location and the crew. Its an experience that you cant get even from any 5 star resort in Perhentian. Definitely be going back there.
