Based right on the beach at Tekek, a RM10 taxi ride but only about 20 minute walk from the airport (not much fun if you're lugging luggage). The entrance is a bit underwhelming; old sign, sand/dirt entrance with tree roots exposed but once inside , WOW. We had a beachfront cottage (Sea Chalet 3)., no A/C but didn't need it. Wall mounted fan, mosquito net (didn't use it), ensuite, 3m x 5m deck with 2 chairs, table and hammock.No clothes hanging space, only a 5 shelf cabinet. Only 25 minutes to the water and there is a dive centre on site. Took Berjaya Air from Budget Terminal at Changi, 50 minute flight. Hand luggage is restricted to 5 kg and checked luggage is only 10kg.
There is no restaurant on site and breakfast (minimal) is served at the recpion/lounge deck looking out to the gardens.There is a communal fridg. and a honesty white board where you enter up your purchases ( beer, soft drinks, water) and pay for the lot at check-out Plenty of restaurants along the road to the Port at Tekek but only one sells beer ( Chinese Seafood restnt. on right hand side closest to Swiss Cottage entrance) but there are duty free stores all along the road and you can but whatever you wish and take it into any of the restaurants/cafes..
The cottages are not touristy;( no massages, shopping, bars) and if you're not a diver, 5 nights is appropriate.
