    I had been to this place a couple of times before, the last visit was 6 years ago. The kitchen lobby is worn out now and there is only tea bags for guest, and not even sugar was available.

    We have friends who stay at Matahari every weekend during the surf season (Dec-Feb) so we thought to give it a try in June (off peak and relatively quiet). I guess their rooms have not been rented for some time, and it looked like it hadn't been cleaned for some weeks. To be fair we didn't book in advance but...

    Very basic but meets all your needs. I stayed in a chalet with 2 single beds and an outside toilet for 30 ringit. Close walk to the beach. Good/ basic kitchen. Friendly staff/ family. Very relaxing. I loved Cherating!

    We spend 3 nights at these bungalows in Cherating. The family who runs the accomodation is very very nice and helped us along the way. Took some surfing lessons and rented a board for a couple of days! Gerrard & Wadi thanks!

    If you want to surf in Malaysia, this is the spot ! The cherating point surf school HQ is at this chalet park. The people are so kind, they Will help you with everything. You can get A chalet from 30rm up to 50rm (with own bathroom). Besides surfing (from nov-jan) there is not that much to do.

    A quaint family run guesthouse, Mata Hari Chalets was a great place to stay for 4 days. It's conveniently located less than five minutes walk to restaurants and the beach. The main area is like a garden and well tended, making it one of the nicer looking and feeling guesthouses in the area. The large garden and kitchen are great...

    My partner and I absolutely loved this place! The chalets are adorable and are set in a really well maintained garden, the people here are lovely too! The rooms could have definitely been a little cleaner but for the price it was grand! Nice balcony to sit on on an evening :) They have rabbits that you can feed and...
