I chose Bayu as a friend recommended it to me. I have to justify, bayu's rooms are lovely. Quiet serene and cosy. The beds are comfy but the extra mattresses which I requested for were pretty old. My friend whom slept on it couldn't sleep as he could feel the springs that were protruding out. Poor thing. Hot showers good...

This was my 1st time in Perhentian Island. The beaches and seawater were amazing. I was mesmerized. The snorkelling experience was way better than Sapi or Manukan islands in Sabah. The hotel itself was quite good for budget conscious. The location was okay, the staffs were friendly and the rooms were quite comfortable. The foods were quite delicious although the...

For me it was the second time on Perhentian and in the Bayu Dive Lodge. I did my OWD-referral there with a friend and now came back with my girlfriend. For her it was the first time in Asia ever and so I had to prove that it was a good idea to go there on holiday. Bayu Dive Lodge...

Spent 3d2n with 6 meals included. The meals was really, really good. But the waiters can be rude. The room was okay. It's clean and basic, though it wasn't cleaned by the staffs on daily basis. The wooden walls are pretty thin so you can listen to next door's conversations and lizards, insects and rats can easily gain access into...

Bayu offers accommodation to suit any budget. Granted not all of the rooms are amazing but it's location more than makes up for it! This is great place for relaxing, it's quiet if that's what your after but also features a great night life atmosphere in that its chilled out! The food and service are very good, and the staff...

The good: The food is super fantastic. You should definitely try the tofu & pineapple curry. It is out of this world. We had all our lunches and dinners there, and found it to be quite reasonable. The staff is respectful and very nice. The resort seem to be run professionally. The bad: We stayed at Bayu dive lodge for...

Great staff! They are the most helpful and accommodating hotel staff we've ever met . Their attitude deserves 5 stars! As there isn't a mini fridge, the restaurant staff assisted us with chilling our beverages that we had with us. We had a beach front chalet Whale Shark & our children had Sandtiger . Room was basic but with a...

Bayu Dive lodge has nice little cottages, nothing fancy but all you need and with nice balconies facing the nice Garden inbetween the Cottages. It is right at the Beach and the Restaurant area is overlooking the nice Beach/Ocean. Food was delicious as well (breakfast could be a bit more varied). The best thing was the super nice, always helpful...

We went to Perhentian Island whilst my wife was pregnant, so I was the only one who was diving. Generally the lodge was very nice and quite sufficient for divers. Even comfortable enough for my wife during her pregnancy. Service was generally good, and staff were friendly as was Sam one of the dive masters based here. He taught me...
