Overlooking the stunning landscape of the South China Sea, Alunan Resort
is where you should stay on your next trip to Perhentian Island. With a secluded beach as your playground, this modern resort caters to all types of travellers ranging from families to honeymooners.
If you can splurge on a room in this contemporary boutique resort, let it be the double-storey Serenity Suites. Besides stepping closer to the floor-to-ceiling glass panel to see the ocean view, this suite is divided into two floors: a private rooftop sundeck on the upper floor and bedroom on the ground floor. Since there are many stairs leading up to the Serenity Suites, it might be tiring for kids and the elderly to climb, but don't worry, there's another room that is perfect for your whole family!
Your family can enjoy a tropical getaway at the Family Suite, which is the largest suite at Alunan Resort. Parents and kids can rest comfortably in a two-bedroom suite, unwind at the private rooftop sun deck, or watch family movies on the 32-inch flat-screen TV.
Honeymooners can find their home away from home at the hillside Double Serenity Suite that's equally equipped with modern amenities including a view of the ocean and rainforest.
If you want to make the most of your stay at Alunan Resort in Perhentian Island, this resort also offers carefully-selected excursions that catered to beach and nature lovers.
For beach lovers, you can snorkel around Perhentian Island, explore the islands of Rawa, Lang Tengah, and Redang, try sea kayaking and stand up paddle boarding for the first time, or experience high-speed fun tubing!
Honeymooners can also catch the sunset while cruising around the island on the resort's Hobie Cat. Better yet, take the lead and learn how to navigate a sailboat on the wide ocean. It'll be an experience unlike any other.
For nature lovers, Alunan Resort also offers jungle trekking that includes a 20-minute walk to the main fishing village (look out for monitor lizards) or a
long walk along Petani Beach (spot big spiders, monitor lizards and monkeys).
Alunan Resort also serves delicious Western and Malaysian cuisine at Bayu Restaurant! Besides enjoying the relaxing sea breeze, this open-air restaurant serves anything from rendang chicken and asam pedas fish to pan seared sea perch and deep fried butter milk chicken chop.
Alunan Resort's rooms typically start at RM929 per night (Double Room), which admittedly, is not within budget for many of us 😅 But they are currently having up to 50% off room rates for a limited time only! Based on an Agoda search for stays in September 2020, these are the room rates we've found!
#HHWT Tip : The resort is also offering a snorkelling package starting at RM295 per person for 4D3N stay and RM332 per person for 3D2N stay. It includes room, meals, snorkelling trip, return boat transfers and free date changes. However, it's only valid for guests staying at Family Suite (5 people) in October 2020.
