Imagine The Beach, but the Perhentian edition
What we say:
Last off the rank on Coral Bay, this is an unusual find. According to their signage, Butterfly is a "DIY guesthouse": you check yourself in, pick your own bungalow and, well, figure it all out yourself. Not surprisingly, we couldn't find anyone to show us anything here. But the wooden bungalows looked pretty rustic from the outside. Still, some are extremely well appointed, and the one in particular almost overhanging the sea was pretty enticing. Seemingly let out on a walk-in basis only, they have electricity at night (the signboard read 7pm to 7am) and apparently WiFi. Could be an interesting choice and the price is reasonable. If this style of place appeals, about 15 minutes walk south of here on the trail to Keranji beach there is a traveller's camp where you can rent a tent, cook your own food and so on.
