I did 2 or 3 random day dives (dives only, no accommodation) with them about 2 years back and had a good experience. I decided to stick to them this time round, but turned out it wasn't such a good idea. Maybe it was the peak season (early August) but oh well, whatever it was, they definitely could have done...

I have been visited Matahari chalet a couple of times now, and I must say its one of my favorite places to stay in perhentian Kecil.

Having arrived accomodationless on the island and a bit lost and panicked we found Matahari by chance! They were fully booked in all their rooms except their aircon rooms which were 180R a night (£36) so we decided to just get one night and Scope out cheaper accommodation elsewhere for the remaining nights. Turns out the island is actually really...

We arrived on Perhentian Kecil at 9am with nowhere to stay and with there being 3 of us we found it hard to find accommodation for 3 people. The Matahari Chalet offered us a mattress on the floor for 30 ringets extra (most places offered this but the room prices were more), so we took it. We stayed in the...

We stayed in the AC room, this was incl in our diving package. The room is basic but clean. Perhentian Islands are really beautiful but there is not much to do expect for snorkeling and diving. The underwater world is amazing. The matahari diving center was amazing!! On the whole Island kecil we did not have internet reach, only sometimes...

We loved it here. Having arrived at 6am and trekked around panic stricken about finding somewhere to stay and coming across some pretty grim looking bungalows/chalets we were over the moon to find this gem. We stayed in a chalet which was a little more than we wanted to spend but was 100% worth it. We had a private room,...

We stayed in the Matahari chalets and did five dives with the attached dive shop so this is a combined review for the two. Diving Couldn't recommend the dive shop enough.

We stayed here in a chalet as it was cheaper for 3 of us than the hostel. It was basic and clean and they gave us an extra mosquito net when we asked. Breakfast was included and was big and tasty. Staff are helpful and friendly and it is set back off the beach. Don't let the walk in put...
