We have been to Perhentian 3 times and decided to stay at Abdul's for the first time. We always stay at Tuna Bay but the rooms are so expensive there now. No regrets whatsoever!

We stayed as a family. The rooms are clean and very basic. The beach was clean. Snorkelling was organised with a local boat. The food was ok. The place is popular and rooms are usually full. However, the reception/reservation can sometimes be disinterested and unhelpful.

We stayed nearby and came here for dinner twice and lunch once during our stay. Food was good - we had a variety of curries and then bbq fish/chicken satay - everything we ordered was good. Prices are good value. Very nice sitting on the beachfront under the stars.

We stayed with 3 friends for 2 nights in abdul chalet and enjoyed it very much. The staff is extraordinary friendly and helpful. The food in the chalet restaurant is amazing - not 1 dish ever disappointed! The location and the wonderful staff at abdul chalet makes the stay in Perhentian island an unforgettable experience.

We loved dining on the beach in front of Abdul's! The food was overall very good and staff nice. If you are on the island, try it out!

We had the King Fish BBQ and Squid BBQ which was simply delicious. At RM28 it comes with rice, salad and a drink. The next night we tried the Chicken and Beef BBQ. The chicken was juicy and delicious but the beef was tough and overcooked. The following night we tried the local cuisine of chicken curry, steamed fish, kailan... More
