                Highly, highly recommended!!!”

                My husband and I are soooo happy that we changed upon this resort. My husband is always commenting how fussy and picky I am but I seriously have nothing to complain about Bubu resort. Everything was perfect... from the moment we arrived to check out. Breakfast and the a la carte menu were absolutely fantabulous (if anyone complains about the price, they truly do not understand the meaning of quality), resort staffs were friendly/warm/helpful (especially Ah Wei, Jackson, Khong and the older aunty.... actually, everyone), rooms were clean and comfy and, even the shower/sink faucets were of quality (Grohe). We were even served free cocktails on a daily basis (from 4-6pm) plus snacks. What’s so amazing about that wasn’t because of the drinks being free... BUT, the amazing part was the service. Most resorts/hotels’ staffs with free cocktails won’t be happy serving them BUT, Bubu’s Ah Wei and Jackson will come around to the beach deck chairs enquiring if we would like to place an order for the free drinks. They are always smiling, joking and happy. I love this resort and can’t wait to return because everyone here works very well as a team .. or more like a family and, I can definitely feel their friendship and warmth. We have been to the best hotels in the world and I must say that it’s very rare to chance upon such wonderful camaraderie within a team. Well done Bubu and please keep up the great work!!! You will definitely see us very soon 😊🤗

                Best place on perhentian!”

                Nothing you ask is to much, 3 minute from Jetty , welcome drink, staff is amazing and very kind ! The rooms were very very clean and the Breakfast was one of the best i had so far in malaysia, you can get a free towel for the beach every day and between 5 and 6 Pm you get a free cocktail of choice and Some beverages. The bed slept great and the view was spectacular! It costed Some more money than the rest on the island but is was more than worth it!

                Pro: clean, safe, friendly and helpful staff (front desk, housekeeping and snorkel/ boat crew), my kids were happy, comfy beds, good food, fresh juice & coffee for bfast and freshly baked croissant is lovely, happy hour 4-6pm is a big plus point (please add coconut drink!), best location (near jetty w small fish) Cons: weird room layout (no door between toilet & mini bar / wardrobe), need more toiletries (toothbrush, laundry bag), no bath tub (i expect one with its price tag), a bit pricey for the room. Will i return? Yes!

                Everything about bubu resort is great! When we travel we like to choose hotel that is worth with what we’re paying. I have to say bubu exceeded our expectation! For a independent small hotel they are fantastic. The staff are friendly, the room is clean, the hotel surrounding is chilled with island vibe, and the food is delicious! If anyone coming here we recommend to book their full board package. Worth every penny 😊

                We stayed there for a week and had a wonderful environment to enjoy. The room was so clean and they changed the bed belongings every day. The servive and food there were wonderful, especially for family travelling. And we will go back to Bubu again next time when I decide to go to Malaysia.

                We stayed for three nights in the Bubu resort and really enjoyed our stay. While it is a more costly option than other resorts on the island the amazing service, prime location sunbeds, and snorkeling gear for borrowing in addition to a daily complimentary happy hour coctail all makes it feel like good value for money. Nice rooms, friendly staff, great restaurant and perfect location on long beach.

                Close to pier, where you arrive and where you can go snorkeling. Clean beach and sea. They have beach chairs with umbrellas (basically almost only they provide it for free)+ they provide beach towels 1 per person per day. Great breakfast with good coffee and drinks. Good rooms with great view, not very big, but enough for a family to do daily routine and sleep. Responsive staff providing great service. Great kitchen in the restaurant, bit pricey, but c'mon, you get a restaurant with restaurant grade menu on an island where even electricity is supplied by generators. Complimentary drinks at 4 pm.
