Good 6.0
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).
Ladina, sg4 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
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.

Fair 4.0
No nice beach, construction next door
There was a half-abandoned construction site right next to the resort which no one told us about and which is not a nice view to look at. The beach in front of the resort mostly also looked like a construction site so that you don’t really want to relax there, you’ll need to go to other nearby beaches, but they’re quite close. The water taxi to these beaches is not included in the room price and relatively pricey. Transits to other islands are also extremely overpriced (600 RM for a 45 minute boat ride). The staff was friendly and the food was decent, room was also alright but the aircon was extremely loud. Overall, certainly not a lot of value for money given the price per night and the construction site next door.

Nice but not great
The staff were great and helpful However, since our rooms were right at the top unfortunately, ie rooms 19 n 20, it was very difficult for my mother and I to climb up the steep road and stairs. Also the stairs to the balcony were steep. This is not a resort for older people especially those with joint problems and also not suitable for small children.
