We had fantastic days here. The staff were so nice and helpful. The place is indescribably beautiful. The water is full of fish. On the downside a lot of people from other resorts come here to swim. Therefore it sometimes seems quite crowded at the beach.

This place is an absolute gem. Bungalows on the beach, clean, nice little veranda, bathroom with hot and cold shower, very good food in the restaurant. Bathroom needs renovation and you can't find any alcohol at Abduls'. You can have a beer or a glass of wine at Tuna Bay about 100 meters from Abduls chalets or you can buy...

Abdul's Chalet has long tradition on Perhentian Besar. He started small with only some chalets and improved over the years his chalets from the outside and outside as well as offers larger food menu and boat shuttle. This of cause is known by many people and Adul's is therefore mostly fully booked. We were lucky to get two chalets for...

Let me start by saying the island itself is beautiful! No roads so it's only possible to get around by boat which is a major plus (quiet). Abdul's was okay, wasn't expecting much anyway as I heard that the accomodation there wasn't great value. Some of the staff were excellent, others not. It was hard to get things seen to...

First of all i would like to say that i don't agree with many reviews that the service is poor. Actually it was better than i expected. Staff is young but that doesn't mean they don't do their job. Of course they don't act like personnel in high end restaurants but they are all helpful and efficient if you ask...

Although been there for many times but this is the First time staying here. With good snorkeling spot, serve good and large portion of food to customer, the money we spent is worth.

We have been travelling around both Asia and Europe, sun bathed in a thousand beaches, especially the beaches in Spain and Canary Islands. But we have to say, Pulau Perhentian and Abdul Chalet itself is truly a gem. Warm water temperature of a big natural swimming pool just at you door step, really! Not just a beach, but it is...

TA reviews certainly influenced me to book a stay at Abdul's, but 1 common issue I read from the reviews are the staff's attitude. I think this is the first time I have encountered reservation staff that is very rude and unprofessional. I contacted the staff to book a room and ask about options they have. They answered quite promptly...

The place isn’t particularly bad, but I need to rate it down as we would have never staid there had the hotel correctly communicated the total cost of the stay at the time of reservation. Basically, we were quoted a price over email of RM 1150 for 3 nights. At check-out, the receptionist told us they made a mistake and...

The best budget beach chalet on Perhentian Besar. Clean and quiet room with air conditioner and fan, terrace with seating, a small fridge, towels and toiletry supplies and beautiful views from the balcony.
