Tioman Island is surrounded by numerous coral reefs, making it a popular scuba diving spot and a paradise to marine biologist. It is one of the most beautiful island in the world and I had the privilege to stay there for a little while with my family during Tioman Island Clean Up Day 2016.
There are a lot of resorts and chalets around the island but if you are looking for something that on the higher end, you might want to head over to Berjaya Tioman Resort. Berjaya Tioman Resort is a 1-hour, 30-minute ferry ride from Mersing Jetty or Tanjung Gemok Jetty and it features traditional Malay-style chalets with sea or garden views, a beautiful 18-hole golf course that boasts views of the sea and the lush rainforest.
And here’s our chalet, a Superior Chalet with private balcony.
The morning view from our chalet.
Our chalet features three Queen sized beds, fitted with wooden flooring and furnishings, air conditioning and fans.
Housekeeping team are pretty artistic. Our beds were decorated with animal arts and bougainvillea petals each time they came in to clean up. Pretty uplifting, I must say.
Living area with comfy sofa
I always look forward to the evening after housekeeping session. There’s always surprises like this waiting for us to enjoy after a long day outdoor.
The chalet is equipped with cable TV, a mini bar and a coffee/tea making facilities. The mini bar is left empty for your own usage but should you wish to have it stocked, just give a call to housekeeping.
The chalet also comes with a decent sized bathtub and shower.
To get a better view of the chalet, take a look at the video above.
There are plenty of things you can do while you are in Tioman. Diving, snorkeling, kayak-ing, and a glassbottom boat ride tops the list but if you want to enjoy the resort instead of the sea, you can exercise in the fitness centre or choose from a range of treatments at Taaras Spa. Tennis courts and a games room are also available for those who must have a shot of adrenaline daily.
There are a few dining options in Berjaya Tioman Resorts. Sri Nelayan serves Malaysian and international specialities, while Coriander Seeds Restaurant is open for dinner. For drinks and light snacks, the sunken pool bar and beach bar are available. Free Wi-Fi is available in its public areas.
Our stay was pleasant and with such picturesque view to wake up to every morning, there’s nothing to complain about and I have to say that then place is great for some R&R or for a relaxing island holiday.
