We were sent to The Barat's Jetty directly from the mainland's ferry boat which we board at Kuala Besut. The journey took about 40 minutes. We have to carry our bags and belongings from the pier to the reception which entail a walk on the floating jetty , a distance of about 40 m. Check-in at Barat was a breeze, the staff were friendly and know what they are doing. Within minutes we were given our room keys and the reception were able to answer our questions: check-out time , breakfast and meals, last order for meals, snorkeling trip, other services, etc etc. We took the 2 bedroom chalet and the children were in the 4 bunk bed dorm. Our room was well appointed with fan and air con which were working well. There was also a mini fridge, kettle for boiling water and complimentary 2 bottles of drinking water, toiletries in the bathroom, shelves for keeping things as well dressing table and hair dryer, lots of hangers. The bed were of good quality as so were the bed sheets and blankets. Outside were drying lines and easy chairs and a small table. Our only complain was the water pressure for the shower was low to almost a trickle at times though the water heater was working fine. Barat restaurant fares are good, a good selection breakfast both local and western foods. As for dinner they have a good selection of tasty foods though the service took sometime, we guess due to the crowds but the servers were helpful and attentive. A good place for dinner with the setting sun to keep you company. The restaurant eating place is ample and even runs out to the 'outdoor' where they have 3 long dining table able to accommodate at least 10 people and a few tables facing the sea side. Other than the rooms and the restaurant The Barat also offers ample lounging place with hammock and reclining beach chairs in their compound. Other services offered at The Barat are diving ( which we did not try) and also snorkeling, kayaking, island tours by boat, among others ( all by a third party located just by end of The Barat's jetty. Though the resort do not have swim able beach front, you can have a walk up to the turtle beach towards the Perhantian Besar Jetty Terminal. Nice beach to chill out and pretty deserted most of the times. BTW if you require emergency snacks and water there is a small convenient shop just by the kiosk where you hire the kayaks. Should you decide to try other place on the island for foods there a a few around, you just need to walk literally up and down the beach. As for other activities, you can hire the kayak at RM 30 per hour or RM 40 for 3 hours and paddle to your heart content around the island stopping at the beaches dotting the shore or sign up for snorkeling trip to see the the turtle, sharks, coral garden as well as the waterfall. Another great plus for The Barat, we check out at 11 am ( after requesting for an extension), and the resort allow us to keep our bags in their store room, allowed us to use their bath towel as well as their shower before we finally board our ferry at 4 pm. It is a great convenience and service .

If you are planning pay/book for the seafront chalet, do get rooms 101-104. Room 105 & 106 although marked as seafront in their system is actually blocked by their restaurant (see photo). Other than that, had a fairly good stay. Excellent housekeeping, reception n restaurant staff. Room condition is fair, water pressure at toilet in room 105 is slow.

I would like to highlight that during our dine in at the Barat we did actually come across a very rude waitress. The way she communicate regards on whether we have voucher or orders is very impolite as if we owe her something and the experience with her service just make us felt uneasy. However, we would like to acknowledge the overall service which provide by others staffs in the Barat are pretty good, polite, well-manner, and friendly. Especially King the waiter who work in the restaurant he know how to response to problem, satisfy customer and ensure customer enjoy their meal there. He service is effective and efficient, we are pretty satisfy with his service. We will give him 5 for the rating. Room To prevent the hassle of moving we did not request for the change. I think I would like to raise these so the property can look into the issues and make improvement. -The toilet ceiling was having water leaking -Door was having issues to lock Overall the stay is pretty good.

Overall i'm impress with The Barat Perhentian Resort,excellent service, clean room,good food. My family really enjoyed their time there,definitely will come back to Perhentian Island again. Maybe the management can consider to add exhaust fan in the toilet, so we can hang & dried our swimming gear privately

First check in to the room with the door can’t lock. The maintenance guy reluctant to help us change the room and ask us to wait he will fix the door lock. I can’t wait cause I felt it is not safe for 2 girls staying in a room with the door can’t lock. Approached reception and request to change room. Finally after went through all the trouble manage to changed room. If you have a neighbor staying with all the youngster you can’t sleep till midnight. The room does not have sound proof. Anything you said can be heard. The room was not well maintained. The food others than seafood no vegetable. The lunch & dinner not much choice. I rather pay more to stay at Tuna Bay compare to this resort. Not recommended to stay at this resort.
