10/10 Exceptional

Alunan, built amongst hundred years old forests, and a panoramic view towards the crystal clear turquoise south china sea. Alunan is like the best-kept secret on the east coast of Malaysia. Kudos to the coral conservation efforts, with house reef to die for, so close to the coastline, right next to your doorstep. There are thousand and one things to do, from the reef plating, catamaran sailing, table tennis, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, diving, best of Perhentian hopping, shark and turtle sighting, you just cannot get enough of Alunan. Service and food is impeccable, room is large and airy, with amazing view from your bed and the uniqueness is you have your own rooftop deck. Wildlife is crawling, flying, and swimming all over the premises, this is as close to nature as you can get; A place that gives back to nature and is meant for people who love nature.

Wonderful Alunan
We had a wonderful stay at this small and quiet resort that we hope to be back. The rooms are well maintained, clean, comfortable and has a upstairs private deck with an amazing view. The food is simply delicious with a variety of Malaysian and Western dishes. The staff are very attentive and helpful, the service provided is more like a 5 stars resort. Snorkeling off the resort beach is amazing with colorful coral, fish and giant clams.

6/10 Good

The resort was overall ok but the first impresstion wasn't that good. I booked a double room since we were only me and my husband but they gave us 1 double & 1 single bed room. no one explained us about it when we check in but when i found out and asked them later they said they 'upgraded' to triple room since the double i booked was under maintanance. However the room i got was not better room and it was the same price when i made a booking. I dont understand what was upgraded since we dont need triple room at all and why they did not asked us to understand the situation first. Anyway we stayed without changing room. Good things : They arranged a private boat from kuala besut to the island which managed thier own with resonable price and good service All food we ate in the restaurant was very tasty and restaurant staffs are all kind and frendly especialy the bar staff (sorry we did not aked his name) Recommend for someone wants to avoid crowed spot and have a peaceful holiday

Paradise in Perhentians to relax and enjoy nature!
Alunan is located in a quiet and absolutely pristine area. The hotel staff makes the real difference though. Everyone greets you with a genuine smile and they seem to really enjoy and are proud of being part of Alunan! They also started a coral project with efforts to rebuild the reef around the hotel bay and you can snorkel in their coral nursery. Bayu the hotel Restaurant is a delight (they grow their own salad!) and the breakfast is simply delicious (try their roti canai!) The boat captain will watertaxi you anywhere anytime of day and night. The rooms is spacious. The isolation of the rooms is not the greatest (as you would expect on a remote island but the environment is very calm, so the only thing you might hear is the rain at night).

Great location and wonderful staff. Good breakfast. Quality of food in the restaurant for dinner was below average and given the price we did not find it to be value for money. We found other places to eat for the remainder of our stay. Bathroom door was quite dirty and we found rust in the bathroom. The impression given by the hotels photographs is that the The roof top area is fairly private. This is not the case. We were overlooked by a number of other rooms which was disappointing. We were also disappointed in the view from the roof area. We took a couple of snorkelling trips which were excellent, although the pricing of the trips should be more transparent. Tax and service charges were added to our final bill for the trips. These were the only trips during our holiday that had these charges added. Similar trips can be booked in the fishing village a 10 minute walk for almost half the price. I really liked being given a reusable water bottle and there were plenty of places to refill it. However, we did still find plastic bottles thrown on the beach area. Whilst this is the fault of other people I do think that the hotel could do more to keep the beach area litter free.

Luxurious eco-friendly hotel on Perhentian Kecil
We had a fabulous experience at the Alunan. The staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful, the room was spacious with a fantastic view, comfortable beds with soft sheets and good pillows, all in all it could not have been better. We also liked the fact that it is an eco-friendly hotel, and they are working on conservation of the coral and have hired a marine biologist to assist them.
