Welcome to BUBU
BuBu offers you not one but two luxury but affordable beach resorts, both located on Long Beach of Pulau Perhentian Kecil, the smaller of the two main Perhentian islands. With its 700 metres of gently sloping powdery white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters, Long Beach is probably the best beach in all of Peninsular Malaysia. Indeed, it was rated the 13th best beach in the world in a CNN survey!
Both the Resort and the Villa boast high-class restaurants where you can enjoy hearty breakfasts, appetising lunches and sumptuous evening meals – not to mention a range of cocktails, mocktails, aperitifs, gourmet coffee and other drinks. There is also broadband Internet access throughout both resorts.
There is plenty to do at our resorts, with snorkeling, diving and island hopping all near to hand – see our activities section for more details. Or you can simply chill out to the wonderful views onto the South China Sea.

They both were all-out in ensuring that the honeymoon was memorable to my brother. The free honey moon decor in the room was fantastic and they even accommodated our request to arrange for candle light dinner with free decor as well. According to my brother, the villa is really great and perfect for newly weds! read lessWFarhanim15/05/19

Het resort zelf is klein en niet echt modern, er is te weinig personeel om alle gasten adequaat en goed te bedienen. Het eten in het restaurant is prijzig verderop zijn er genoeg eettentjes waar je goed en voor minder kan eten. Alleen daar is het weer zo druk en een te kleine keuken dat je zeker een uur kan wachten op je eten. En dan is het nog maar de vraag of je het juiste krijgt. Het was leuk maar voor dat geld zijn er veel leuker en mooier plekken in Maleisië. read lessRayLeonard196430/08/18

Everything from the high level of service to the cleanliness, restaurant and free cocktails in the evening are superb.
Yes you pay a bit more for the food and drinks here, but a short walk on the beach offers plenty of alternatives.
The snorkelling trips are well organised and insured - not like some of the others offered on the beach!
One criticism would be the shuttle transfer from the island to the airport. Bubu arranges this at a higher cost than the booking it oneself, but in fact once you reach the jetty, you join a shared shuttle bus anyway - so there is no reason for the additional fare.
I would stay again, it is by far the best on the island for hotels (I didn't try the bubu villas) More read lesslost_outhere02/06/19

However there are some shortcomings. The place was infested with mosquitoes. Best to bring some insect repellant. Also, paid for the hotel transfer service thinking it would be the hotel boat. But no, apparently on a whim they decided to use an external operator which was overloaded and uncomfortable and felt unsafe.
You would be better off just arriving, catching a taxi to the Kuala besut ferry terminal and catching a water taxi from there. Cheaper then the hotel, essentially for the same thing.
Same for the snorkeling trips. Walk out of resort to the right or left and u get the same snorkeling trips for 2/3 of the price.
Food on the other hand was pretty good for perhentians. Great tasty Italian good, the halal type, ostensibly to cater to the local sensitivities.
Long and short, I wouldn't hesitate to come back here, but I wouldn't bother with the hotel transfer and would just do it myself for more flexibility. Do not believe just because you pay a premium you get a different product. read lessflitting_bird24/06/19

Le rapport qualité prix n est franchement pas bon à mon sens (plus de 500€ pour 4 nuits), mais on conseille quand même car l hôtel est confortable, calme, bien entretenu, le petit dej est ok, plusieurs bains de soleil sont à disposition sur la plage et on a pas eu l impression de voir mieux sur l île!
Le resto est de très bonne qualité mais très cher également...
Très bonne organisation des transferts depuis/vers l aéroport read lesslnben12/09/18

Our garden villa was perfect, calm and comfortable. The service was excellent and the food at the restaurant delicious, even if a little bit expensive. One advice: if you want to snorkle, just ask a driver on the beach to book a boat. Actually it’s quite expensive through the hotel. All in all a very nice stay! read lesselbaron8716/09/18

Staff at both breakfast and dinner provided great service.
We took the snorkel trip for half a day. The guy (Isaac) took good care of us to ensure that we saw the turtles, the Sharks and the fish. A very worthwhile experience!
Now the hotel, the room was in need of a full remodel. Needed painting, the bathroom door was swollen and needed a lot of effort to close it (from the banging heard through the night, it seems that many doors were difficult and needed a good slam!), the bathroom was a little basic (as you might find on a ferry).
The place needs some investment. I believe that this will happen as the price paid was high and the people staying there were not back packers.
I hope for the sake of the staff, that they get the hotel that their efforts deserve. read lessAquila201327/09/18
