i was amazed by the quality of the comfortable bungalows, cleanliness of the bathroom and cute gardens around. I fell in love with this place - quiet and friendly. NIce and helpful people working there made my stay. Learned to dive with the best ever ;) divers, did jungle trekking and enjoyed the silence of the place, white sand and...

I was supposed to stay in the chalets next to the bayu dive lodge, but that was so old and didn't have a normal shower. So i walked further and was welcomed at the Baby Dive Lodge. They showed me the room which was clean and very nice, so i stayed for 3 days. Behind the rooms was the jungle...

I was there for a few nights, the rooms are basic and clean, a bit dingy because of the dark wooden interior. I booked the accomodation with breakfast through a hotel booking website. However, I met a group of people there which had a dive and meals package, booked directly with the resort, which was more convenient. Because the buffet...

They have some of the best rooms we have stayed in on Perhentian. Large room, ok air con, need a table and chair in the room but just move it from the veranda, decent showers. One issue, they ask to avoid flushing paper down the toilet and provide a bin. However they DO NOT collect it daily, we had to...

We stayed three nights in August 2012. We had signed upp for "a package" that would include a snorkeltour and paid a deposit. First night we stayed in a chalet with a seaview. The seaview was only positive thing because the aircon broke down towards the evening. Nothing you wish in that humid and warm climate! Besides, it was awfull...

Recently spent 7 nites at this establishment. Was looking forward to it as the reviews were not bad. Firstly can I say th quality of the chalets were very good. Infact the room was spacious if a little sparcely kitted out. The bathroom was clean and the shower was adequate. Now comes the negative - the place is shambolicly run!!...

We spend 7 nights at The Bayu Lodge in August this year. As a family of 5 we have travelled extensively over the years but rarely had such a good time and great value for money. From the owner Ari through to the staff working in the restaurant it was a great experience. They had a laid back friendly attitude...

I think it is a bit of a pitty that people complain about the visibility and add this to their review of a hotel, but ok I have even seen people write a review about a place they didn't stay at but just went there for a drink. Our thoughts: for our budget this place is a bit too expensive,...

As divers, my husband and I really came here to experience the underwater world. Turns out that visibility is not great - 10 m max most days - and there is not the abundance of sea life that can be seen at other Malaysian dive areas. The dive staff however were very helpful and obviously loved their job. I would...

I stayed here primarily to go diving in and around Pulau Perhentian. A friend was staying at PIR, across the island (large / besar), but by the time I was booking there wasn't anything available. There is a track connecting the side of the island where Bayu is to PIR, that is about a 20 minute walk (a bit hot...
