Stayed at Tunabay with teenagers for 8 nights. Had interconnecting rooms, 1 right on the beach with an amazing view. Reef right off the beach was wonderful for snorkelling - turtles, thousands of fish, rays..... The staff were very friendly - Jimmy was so friendly and organised an amazing chocolate birthday cake for us. We took a snorkelling trip to...

Been coming to this wonderful place for 10 years and our recent visit in Aug 2016 was just as magical as our first. Thanks soooo much to all the staff for their exceptional customer service & their helpfulness. One thing that really impressed me is the coral near Tuna Bay, I think with the coral here is one of the...

Stayed her for 4 nights while completing an Advanced Scuba Diving certificate at the adjacent Universal Divers. Chalet was comfortable and clean, and free of mosquitos at night. View from the beach and restaurant is awesome. Food at the restaurant was acceptable, albeit a little higher than other nearby restaurants. The service during lunch and dinner was impeccable, friendly, and...

A wonderful place to get away from it all. Intermittent internet service only available in the restaurant / bar. Mobile phones usable most of the time. 45 minute small boat trip to avoid damaging coral. Diving & snorkelling, hiking for the active, boat trips, lounging on wooden sun loungers under palm trees for the less active, discussing relative merits of...

We stayed at Tuna Bay for 6 nights in April. This is a lovely resort on a beautiful stretch of white sand, clear water and good snorkelling right off the beach. We opted for the best seaview chalet and were generally impressed with the accommodation - it was spotlessly clean, good aircon, decent shower room, fridge, lovely raised decking at...

we went there end of march 2017. Tuna Bay it's probably the best place for a relaxing stay. It's clean, tid, cozy and the staff is great, helpful and accomodating. Make sure your expectation is not to look for a 5 stars resort, there's nothing like that in Perhentian, luckily. Food is great and beer is cheap and don't give...

We went for 4D3N stay there. Starting from KL at around 5am with a few stops at Karak and LPT highway. Managed to catch 1:30 taxi or they called it speedboat. Everyone was so excited and my 4 years old said she was going to Moana Island. We were kind of speechless when we arrived with the clear crystal water....
