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.

This is the reason why I keep going back to Bubu. read lessWendy13/07/19

E situato vicino al molo perciò posizione comodissima, con i ragazzi del bubu che ti accolgono e ti aiutano a portare le valigie in camera!
Pulizia ottima, e centro massaggi favoloso la signora thailandese ha oro nelle mani!
Colazione buonissima con una stupenda vista mare.
Il cocktail offerto il pomeriggio una vera chicca.
Il ristorante caro per li standard malesi ma con piatti veramente ottimi.
Ps noi andavamo a mangiare nel secondo ristorante subito dopo il resort, prezzi ottimi e pesce sempre buonissimo! read less809annagiulias24/08/19

Hotel location is just in front of amazing beach shore! We actually booked the resort but since we went here right after monsoon season, we were transferred to BuBu Villa because the resort still under renovation, anyhow both are actually same owner. Since its also the first day of re-opening of the Villa after monsoon, the owner gives 1 free cocktail as complimentary for all the guests because no activity at the moment and the waves are still strong for snorkeling. You can still enjoy swimming at the shore just be careful for strong waves.
The staff are Filipinos who are very helpful and accommodating.
One thing I noticed is the toilet which is half-roof open. Toilet and shower is covered in roof but the rest is open means you can see the trees above. Its has a high cement walls though so noone can see you inside. But sometimes cannot avoid geckos and insects fly in your toilet. Watch out also for mosquitoes in the evening.
Overall experience is perfect! read lessChristian14/02/19

Het ontvangst door Paula was erg hartelijk. Haar service is top! Dat geldt overigens voor al het personeel. Vriendelijk en behulpzaam. De ligging van het hotel is ideaal, aan het einde van de baai, dicht bij de pier. Tip om de boottocht via Bubu te boeken. Is nagenoeg gelijk aan andere prijzen maar veel comfortabeler en je hoeft niet zelf je koffers door het zand te sleuren.
Hotelkamer is basic met fijne bedden, geen TV. We hadden wel moeite om onze koffers te bergen. De badkamer was ruim. Opvallend dat verder alles op de badkamer was. Koelkast, koffiezetapparaat, kofferrek, kledingkast en kluisje. De airco werkte goed. Dagelijks schone handdoeken maar verder werd er niet gepoetst in de 4 dagen dat wij er waren. Prullenbakken werden wel geleegd, shampoo aangevuld. De WIFI was op onze kamer zeer zwak. In het restaurant en bij de receptie werkte het beter. Het restaurant was goed. Ontbijt, lunch en diner, allemaal lekker. Tussen 5 en 6 uur een gratis cocktail en een hapje, heel gastvrij. Op het strand waren voldoende bedjes met parasol, enkel voor gasten van het hotel. Bij de receptie kon je een badlaken halen. Super zandstrand, helder water, heerlijke zee en snorkelen voor de deur. Kan echt niet beter. Bij de receptie kun je ook trips boeken maar wij hebben daar geen gebruik van gemaakt. Wel hebben we ons laten masseren in de spa. De twee Thaise dames deden dat geweldig! Verder is het een gezellige baai waar ook 's avonds wat te doen is. Leuke strandtentjes en een paar kleine winkeltjes. En verder is er aandacht om het strand schoon te houden en het koraal te beschermen.
Wij hebben bij Bubu een heerlijk verblijf gehad. Prijs kwaliteit is niet helemaal in orde, is echt te duur. Maar je betaalt ook voor de locatie. Ondanks de prijs zouden we dit hotel zeker aanraden. read lesspattyb29104/08/19

The drink is tasty but the first registration process is a little bit upsetting as the front desk is not clear with our booking. And on second day to the sea suggest the receptionist to actually gather us around the lobby instead of asking us to look for the boat ourselves and gather early to avoid the boat runaway. (but in fact they do actually brought the other tourists to the jetty)
the plus points is anyhow the staff is polite and helping. Would attend to request and solved our issue.
Their partner restaurant is professional and cook awesome menus and we really have enjoyed the meals over there! Also with cocktail time every afternoon. The serving time takes the longest time ever but the food is good and so do the staff.
The sea water is clear. and we are so much satisfied with the package which brought us to fish turtle and shark points.
For the bathroom to set up with the wardrobe is minus as the water would flow out and wet the furniture.
A memorable time spent here though. read lessshirleen31/10/19

Ottimo alloggio, ben curato e gestito splendidamente da Simone, che anticipa ogni richiesta della clientela.
Punti di forza del resort: location sulla spiaggia con ombrelloni e sdraio ben allineate ed ordinate con distribuzione gratuita di asciugamani, belle le stanze dotate di ogni comfort, ottimo il servizio massaggi gestito dalla spa interna al resort, buono il ristorante e il servizio accoglienza (cocktail di benvenuto) e cocktail serale offerto dalla direzione.
Punti migliorabili: vista del retro del resort (per altro visibile nell'accesso delle stanze) dotata di macerie in bella vista cosa inaccettabile per il livello di questo hotel, prezzo esagerato rispetto al livello del resto del paese (pagato ca 260 eur doppia/notte). Trovato servizi simili nel resto della malesia (isole) a un terzo/metà del prezzo qui pagato.
L'accesso all'acqua dalla spiaggia - non imputabile al resort - andrebbe a mio avviso meglio regolamentato in quanto le barche arrivano in ogni momento sulla battigia a scaricare turisti e non vi è una zona balneazione ben delimitata, il che crea continui pericoli per i nuotatori di essere investiti . La sera poi i locali hanno abitudine di ancorare le barche con ancore fissate sulla spiaggia, quindi anche in questo caso con potenziali pericoli per chi passeggia sull'arenile (ovviamente buio). read less4trip722/08/19

Superb friendly staff both at the front desk and at the restaurant. Warm, shallow and turquoise water. Enough sunbeds and umbrellas. Beautifully kept garden. Kids and family friendly. Top restaurant for both breakfasts and dinners incl. BBQ set up every night (think grilled squid!). A bit pricey but well worth it. read lessAndrzejPiwowarek01/08/19

We were advised during check-in of our free cocktail each afternoon from 4pm. We certainly enjoyed our daily cocktail, big congratulations to the team on the Tingi Tingi, the most delicious mocktail I've enjoyed! Even when we were down on the beach the team followed up to make sure we ordered our daily free cocktail, a real point of difference. Very good service indeed!
We headed to Bu Bu for snorkelling and certainly enjoyed the waters. Enjoyed the day trips to turtle point, shark point and fish point. Great time spent out on the water.
Our room was compact and with everything required ... overlooking a beautiful garden with an amazing ocean view. We had a bit of a challenge with our power adaptor, Farah from housekeeping came to the rescue, again fantastic service with a smile.
Breakfast buffet was outstanding with beautiful fresh fruits, perfect for the morning wake up. Freshly squeezed apple juice or watermelon juice, made to order provided a lovely touch. Orders of hot food items such as eggs were again made to order.
We ate in Santai's restaurant each evening and recommend the pineapple fried rice, red curry, green curry and chicken satay.
A big thank you to Sebastian and the team in Santai's for looking after us during our meals. I had an injury prior to arriving at Bu Bu, which required an ice pack to my ankle each evening to keep me mobile throughout the day. Thank you so much to Sebastian for the ice packs, truly appreciated!
Finally a big thank you to the entire Bu Bu team from check in to check out, your service from the heart made our time on Long Beach so special. Well done to you all and we look forward to our return. read lessQ3058MQlisaa06/08/19
