Arrived as guests, left as friends. Beach box is a cosy boutique hotel consisting of 9 rooms only. First floor room views are worth the amount paid. Best to bring own bottles for drinking water refill ( helps with environment too by reducing virgin plastic usage) . Bottles of water are placed in each room & once finish, just exchange the empty bottles for new drinking ones at the bar/dining area. Dining at beach box is finger licking good. Breakfast is included in room rate, while one can choose full board ( lunch & dinner) or half board ( either lunch or dinner only) on daily basis. Guests from other hotels can also dine here but both inhouse Beachbox guests & other hotels guest needs to pre-book lunch or dinner in advance ( at least the day before). BB team are small in numbers but mighty. The whole place inclusive food&beverages , room cleaning , etc.. was handled when we were there , by 7 pax ( Nico, Yuen, Mou, Sue, Cindy , Halim & another malay chap) . The crew treats each guest well like friends with advice on where else to eat on island, to water activities & hiking over to Mama’s chalet. The best place to chill on a hot afternoon to viewing sunset would have to be at BeachBox deck. Looking forward to staying at Beach Box again!

Beach Box (August 2022). We were in a comfortable family room upstairs with attached double bunk bed set up for the kiddies. Food was ok but wouldn’t say 1st rate and the early morning booking request for lunch and dinner tends to encourage guests to plan dine elsewhere. The kitchen capability could be be upgraded as Breakfasts are basic, preferably could have options based on a healthier style / continental breakfast. Staff were very pleasant. It’s no doubt been challenging times since Covid years. All the best 😅

First of all, I must say my room was pretty spacious and comfortable, and the staff is welcoming. But I can’t help thinking this “boutique hotel” is way overpriced. When you pretend to be a mid-high category hotel, you must deliver: a wifi that works more than a few hours in a 4–day-stay (when it worked perfectly in the surrounding hotels); a peaceful environment instead of an insanely loud generator just in front of the rooms; a more varied breakfast… Also they should work with more reliable partners: the airport shuttle we booked through the hotel never showed up and the boat trip was so badly organised we had to wait thirty minutes in the sun for other customers to arrive. No compensation was proposed until I asked -harshly- for it and finally got a generous discount of… 2 %.

It was my first time visiting P. Perhentian with a group of 10 friends, and we made the best decision to stay at this quaint 9 bedroom hotel. Though it is not rated as a 5 star hotel in terms of facilities, it made up for it as the one that provided "par excellence" service and warmth (as in a cosy friendly place to chill). The rooms were large, clean and comfortable and the meals prepared in "omakase" style were delicious and sumptuous. It was exciting to guess what our next meal is going to be but each dish did not disappoint including the vegetarian meals prepared for one of us. Kudos and a very big TQ to Niko, Su and the rest of the crew for making our stay a memorable one and many of us in the group will be back again. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone planning to visit P Perhentian!!!

An amazing boutique hotel with really well designed rooms and the best hospitality we have ever encountered not only in Malaysia but the world! Yuen, Nico and the team ensure that guests really feel at home by catering to your every needs and actually anticipating them. The food is the best we have ever eaten in any hotel in Malaysia - truly authentic. There is no menu but the chef only makes whatever is fresh and based upon your needs. The fried chicken in the Nasi Borjari was a spiritual experience according to my family! The chef was so good, it turned my son from a wannabe vegetarian into a true carnivore! Our family group has food allergies and while we did bring our own gluten free bread etc, they were able to ensure that the meals my kids ate were suitable. Don't bother eating anywhere else on the island.. its really not worth it! The only downside for is with Beach Box is the fact there is no direct beachfront from the resort - but its only a 5 minute walk down the jetty to the beach outside Tuna Bay Resort.

We chose Beach Box after reading all the raving reviews shared by many others. True enough, they did not dissapoint! We went there to celebrate our birthdays. We were surprised with a delicious birthday cake after our dinner!! Totally caught us by surprise! Great hospitality, very attentive towards their guests needs, always willing to serve, super yummy foods comfortable room and many more to mention. Thank you Yuen, Nico, Pipa, Halim, Eve and the rest of the crew for making our stay very memorable. We came as strangers but left as friends. We missed this place ready. Indeed this is #theplacetobe Beach Box Perhentian Besar. ❤️ We look forward to come back again! May your business continue to soar!

We recently stayed for close to one week at Beach Box. We were very happy with our stay. -> venue and rooms are modern and clean -> location wise it's right on the beach -> food is great -> AC worked perfectly -> communication over email before our stay was smooth -> there was an issue with a bug in our room, but this was taken care of immediately What stood out the most was the hospitality and how friendly Yuen and Nico are. All stay really went the extra mile to make sure we had a good stay. Always want to share some items that we did not find great. Honestly, with the many upsides a serious challenge. -> although the venue is right on the beach, there is no actual beach with sun chairs where you can lay down -> the rooms downstairs directly face the common restaurant area, although we did not experience issues regarding noise. -> the 50% deposit upon reservation is quite steep, and paying by bank transfer (e.g. instead of Paypal) is quite costly A top tip: -> the Tuna Bay restaurant sells international brands of ice cream -> you can walk in the direction of Perhentian Island Resort using a trail (e.g. check Maps.me). Trail is a bit steep at places with mosquito's. Do not wear flip flops.

The Perhentian Islands have always had a special place in this KT girl’s heart, and my recent visit was one of the best because of the lovely people helming Beach Box. Thanks Yuen, Nico, Pippa, Halim, and the rest of the crew, for taking such good care of me and making me feel at home. The room was comfortable and clean, with a fantastic view from the balcony. The meals were delicious and the smoothies, delightful! Beach Box is located right on the water, so the peaceful sound of the crashing waves makes it easy to disconnect from the rest of the world for a few days. And just next door, there’s a great beach where you can swim and snorkel to your heart’s content. I’d love to return someday, even if it’s just to have a good chat and take a picture with the everyone (which I forgot to do this time around, I was having too much fun!)
