JapaMala Resort Tioman Island Reviews
Best place i've ever been! May 15, 2012
I dont know how to make this place justice in words...
They pick you up at the harbour in a very nice boat, take you to the hotel and its just heaven from there on.
The bungalow we had was in the treeline with a perfect view of the ocean. We had our own small pool with a little waterfall.. a large private sundeck,. huge kitchen and very big kitchen, enormous bedroom and a very nice bathroom. The reastaurants are such delights, either you sit out in the ocean (and the staff are so well mannered and helpfull) or you sit at the beach in totally private pavillions.. The breakfast is in the restaurant that looks like a zen garden, with mokeys jumping over your head, and yeah as you have dinner, they go up to your room, light candles and inscence and throw flowers over the bed and floor.. how amazing is that! The area around the hotel is prefect for snorkeling and they arrange different tours.
Dont miss out on this hidden treasure! And if you think about honeymoon, this is the place!!!!

JapaMala Resort Overview
JapaMala Resort was recently rated as one of World Top 10 Ultra Boutique Resorts. With only a dozen malay village-style villas and chalets, the resort evokes a fashionably rustic ambiance that is nature-inspired. Here, rooms are called Sarangs,which means'nests'and while some lie remotely hidden amidst luxuriant jungle, others are perched high on stilts above the turquoise lagoon. The Sarangs' living spaces and outdoor features like plunge pool, day bed,sun deck and open air bath tubs are structured around the resort's magnificent landscape, which is designed by natural streams, steep cliff and towering boulders, all to transcend the experience of elegant and luxury living and dining amidst mother nature. JapaMala's Jungle Luxe concept is designed to offer some serious relaxation, a way of life to escape from your everyday-drama. Guests can therefore be sure they'll be taken care of by resident staff. Many say JapaMala is not just a place, it's a state of mind.
