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.

From the moment the Tuna Bay staff picked us up from the airport, we knew we were in good hands. Smooth transfer to Kuala Besut, straight onto a boat, delivered safe and dry to our island paradise. We saw guests at other resorts dragging their suitcases across the sand. Not at Tuna Bay! Your luggage is delivered from boat to room while you sit down with a welcome drink and check in. The rooms are clean and comfortable with everything you need. Keep in mind that you are staying in a wooden hut on a tropical island and you won’t be disappointed. The hotel restaurant is decent enough. Not cheap for Malaysia, but we’re a captive audience, so no surprises there. I highly recommend trying the chicken and potato curry. If want something a bit cheaper, try Nia cafe just along the

Spent 5 nights here in 2019, 14 years after spending 3 nights here. The rooms and the dining area are perfect. The beach is lovely. The corals have seen better days - a lot of coral decline in the 14 years since our first visit, but if it's your first time you won't notice the difference and to see all these fish and reefs on your doorstep is simply amazing. You're not forced to eat meals besides breakfast in the hotel - there are cheaper places just along the beach. Walk to other beaches and get boat trips to other beaches. See turtles and sharks in the sea. Really!!

Nice and clean rooms in a beautiful beach. The reef in front of the hotel is very and you can get cheap taxi boats to explore the island. Breakfast is very average, the guy at the egg station saves it! The chicken sausages are terrible, like plastic. I recommend the basic room as there isn’t much difference other than the view. Quite expensive for Malaysia standards, but perhentian is not a cheap island. I’ve been here 4 times and this is the best hotel I’ve been to. Good at the restaurant is expensive but good for perhentian standards, except for breakfast They should be a bit more eco-friendly to keep this island as beautiful as it is. They give a straw with every drink, even when you ask not to get one, there isn’t any place to refill water bottles and also some of the

We stayed here for the 11th consecutive year. Last year we were not fully satisfied so decided to give It a try again. This year we were happy again. This is a place to relax no T.V, telephone or internet in the rooms but for the first time good internet in/near the restaurant (even allowing streaming tv). The restaurant is still very good. Waiter Jimmy was extremely helpful and nice to our mentally handicapped son. Rooms are simple but nice. They have sun beds with mattresses on the beach, though not enough for all customers. We can recommend the place and will return next year.
