The Reef Chalet
Quaint and well positioned
Just to the south of Coral View, West Beach, Perhentian Besar T: (09) 691 1762
The Reef has a crescent moon of bungalows running back from the beach between Coral View Resort and Watercolours and a two-storey building set towards the rear of the grounds.
The bungalows are by far the better outfitted option and for once the interiors are almost as decent as how they look from the outside. Each has its own terrace veranda and they're well positioned, yet shaded to take in the lawn grounds and the waters beyind. Furnishings are more functional than funky, but overall the standard (and the pricing) is higher here than at either the neighbouring Watercolours or Mamas a bit further down. The two-storey building at the rear includes family rooms. Staff are friendly but so low key they can be difficult to find. You wouldn't swim in the waters out front but PIR beach is only a 10- minute walk away.
