Perhentian Tuna Bay Island Resort is located on the south west coast of Pulau Perhentian Besar (Big Island), a quiet, untouched part of the island surrounded by tropical jungle, on a broad expanse of powdery white sand. The resort commands a breathtaking view of Pulau Perhentian Kecil (Small Island) and the South China Sea, right on your doorstep. All chalets are just a minute's walk from the beach and are tastefully built with wooden furnish.

The island is really nice. Resort location is good. Beautiful beach with great sunset. We enjoyed The food, and also nice local family restaurant nearby. I would say that resort is little bit pricey, but there isnt that much competition, so prices are what they are. We had beachwiev chalet, but firts two nights we had room number 4a. And that didn't meet our expectations. Big trees surrounding The room, so really dark and no seawiev. Also local monkeys use the terrace as their toilet. I would not recommend to stay at rooms 4a and 5a. Not worth 100 euros per night. Although the resort staff was really nice and moowed us to room 1a, which was really nice. Thanks alot for that! Our experience is that this resort is best place to stay at Perhentian.

Resort is OK, but restaurant is horrible. Mostly all the food is not fresh, and not tasty. Price is crazy expensive for Asia. And the last point which is the most important to me : Waiters are awful. 0 tact. When you ask a question about the food they don't reply, they show disrespect, they are not helpful, they talk in their language between each other, in the Middle of a conversation with you, etc... If course there's 2 or 3 exceptions, but most of th3n are AWFUL. So my advise to travelers is : come at tuna bay, but avoid the restaurant. You have a couple of other choices around.

Pros - reef off the resort was full of life - rays, groupers, angel fish, octopus, parrot fish, puffer fish (we think), needle fish. Snorkelling trip also awesome - black tip reef sharks, turtles. Cons - resort was in close down mode -they were literally dismantling it around us, which was a shame. They close Nov-Feb inclusive. To the extent that they packed away the life jackets and life rafts off the ferry the day before they took us back to Kuala Besut... Airport transfer driver was awful - driving erratically and aggressively and made the kids feel car sick. Overall I felt that Tuna Bay were more interested in our money than in us. A general point - ecological awareness doesn’t seem to have arrived at the Perhentian Islands - we saw a lot of plastic rubbish on the

We have stayed at this hotel for 12 days. The room facilities at this hotel are poor and the room price is a bit high for what you expect in Asia. The staff is prety friendly and helpful. Do not expect to have internet acces in your room or on beach area. The only acces to internet is in restaurant area, but prety poor. The restaurant prices are prety high, but comparable with other resorts on the island.

Helpful wait staff and good meals. The best by far at the end of the season. Good views as well. Only place with a decent coffee and you can fill up your water. We had pretty ordinary food on Besar until we went to Tuna Bay.
