The island is beautiful all around but I'd like to add a few comments to make it a true 5 star resort. 1. Long Beach needs a few shaded spots for travelers to seek refuge during a hot sunny day. A few chaises with colorful umbrellas out on the beach will do. 2. Provide to go boxes for those who...

Let's start with the positive - the island is very nice, several beaches, clear water and lush vegetation all around, hence well done nature for providing us with such great setting. Unfortunately human intervention let's the place down big time. The villa we stated in did not have proper maintenance or cleaning for very long time and was overall very...

My family (2 adults, 2 children aged 3 and 10 months) visited in March together with 3 other families. We travelled from Singapore to Mersing in our own car which was very straight forward and parking in Mersing was simple and cheap. The boat trip over was quick and issue-free. The island is beautiful, the sea was very calm and...

Let's start with the good stuff about the Batu Batu resort. The ocean is a spectacular aqua, the pool is small but really nicely done, the activities are run by a fun, friendly, committed and energetic team and the ambience is lovely. Throw in really helpful people at the Mersing Ferry port, a boat that makes short work of the...

I was here recently with my 15mth old daughter and husband, the resort has been recommended to us by friends. What immediately drew us to this resort was that it had a family feel and the beautiful beach. We booked a beach side villa and for once it was 100% beachside, we walked out of our room onto the beach,...

I feel compelled to come on here and leave a review after several friends shared how their experience at Batu Batu was ruined due to terrible service. I can genuinely say that this was not the case for us. Apparently, there is a new General Manager and Assistant Manager, and they have done an excellent job improving the overall service...

Though to tell what the highlights were during our 7 night stay on this remote island... probably the overwhelming friendliness of all staff (no exception!), probably the fact that we saw turtles everyday when paddling along the island's shore (plus dolphins, plus iguana, plus sea lion, plus plus plus), or maybe it was the fact that we were almost the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BATU BATU is a rustic private island resort set amongst coconut groves, rocky outcrops and fine sand beaches on the tropical, uninhabited island of Pulau Tengah, Malaysia in the South China Sea. This simple resort is built from a variety of hard woods in the style of a Malay "kampung" or village. BATU BATU welcomes families with children. Whilst on Pulau Tengah, adults and children alike can enjoy the island's eight white sandy beaches, snorkel or dive amongst its colourful coral reefs and kayak or walk around its 3km perimeter. The open-sided pavilion restaurant and bar has 270-degree views across the sea and serves delicious European and Asian dishes. Guests can choose to relax with a cold drink at the Beach Bar, soak in the sea, play on the large white sand beaches or embark on an adventure through the island's dense forest. ... more   less
