All about the views, not so much about the rooms
Most of the bungalows here commence at the northern reach of the beach, tumbling down the hill where the walking track from the north comes through, and some have spectacular views and are priced accordingly.
The primary price division is between garden and sea view and given the generally high prices, if you're already in this price bracket, the seaview ones are definitely worth the extra coin -- even if they are a bit of a walk from the restaurant. The rooms are okay, for the Perhentians, but it is really about the views here. The beach is compact but pleasant, with massages and extreme sunburnings ongoing as we walked through. Staff can be frazzled -- we arrived just as a guest went ridiculously postal as they'd had to lug their bags a fair distance from where the boat dropped them off. If you'll be needing assistance with your suitcases, perhaps let them know in advance.
