We stayed at Pulau Malam for 4D4N and we had a great time playing in the pool. This place is situated far from most of the tourist attractions but the staff was really caring and helpful. The villa has 4 bedrooms with 2 attached bathrooms and 1 common (huge) bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary utensils, appliances and cutlery. The villa manager, Ms. Yeoman (sorry if I have misspelled) was very friendly and ensured comfortable stay. She organised transport for all days alongwith airport transfer. Also, there is a bike rental service just 2 minutes walking distance from the villa. Every morning the cook served us with sumptuous breakfast. Housekeeping was done regularly. Overall, a pleasant stay experience and choose Pulau Boutique Villas if you wish to have a relaxed and calm stay (away from the city buzz) with your family.

Beautiful villa with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, small pool and a living room. Great for family! Staff has key to our villa and they just unlock and enter as and when they like. Not recommended to swim or walk around naked. Haha! Breakfast will be prepared and served in villa. There's no telephone in the villa. Would need to walk out and look for someone if you need any assistance. We would suggest a "Do not disturb" sign for guest to display if privacy is required. Amazing 2 nights spent here!

I cant say i hate this place because the staff were really awesome and very very helpful.
It has a scooter rental about 30ft down your villa drive away which kind of makes up for the bad location which is in the middle of nowhere.
The villa was clean and breakfast was great but the pool was just disgusting and soo cold. I didnt even put my feet in.
The villas were amazing and everything was super clean. Lots of lizards but thats no problem if your a true aussie.

Stayed here for two nights with my Girlfriend.

As it was an open concept, anyone could just walk into your doorstep and knock on the door. There's no 24/7 service counter except for a security patrolling around. So if there's anything wrong, I don't know how who to call except Housekeeping...But I was told by my driver that the place is safe as it is silent and far away from crowds. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

The pool was very dirty, you can see many floating particles on it.

There was also a side door that leads into another villa, this door cannot be locked. So anyone from the other villa can walk over. Of course this won't be an issue if you booked both villas...

Heater was off during the night... So I showered in cold water...

Although the place was generally big and nice... It left me with mixed feelings...

Not coming back here unless it's with a large bunch of family and friends... And the pool is clean.

Our group of ten stayed in two villas and the villas were really nice and they had all the facilities. However, the management communication is very pure, the place is too far from all attractions and we ultimately left the wit mixed feelings.
Pros: Place was really nice and secluding, price was good, a maid is allocated for each villa (for cleaning or cooking), free wifi, they allowed late check-out in one villa for no extra fee.
Cons: Poor communication by the management we tried contacting them many times before coming to check few things but failed, have to try so hard to find someone responsible to get something done (most of the times only a security guard was available), keep your valuables locked as someone had stolen $100 from a couple in our group (picked from the wallet which was inside her handbag), water supply in one villa stopped on the last day and they could not fix it till we left.
