D’Lagoon Chalet & Restaurant

Top choice chalet in Pulau Perhentian

Family-run D'Lagoon is the sole property on a tranquil bay with fine coral a short swim from the beach. Accommodation ranges from camping and a longhouse with dorm beds to simple stilt chalets. Activities include snorkelling, shark- and turtle-watching trips, jungle hikes to remote beaches and a free 200m flying fox.

The restaurant serves decent international and Malay food. Live local music can be arranged on request. Take a water taxi to reach here, otherwise it’s an hour’s hike from the Long Beach jetty.
