“Perfect Getaway in a Cheap, Budget Resort.” Jan 13, 2011
If you are one who loves travelling and is used to travelling on a tight budget basis like me, then I would highly recommend this Resort, if Tioman Island is your next travel destination.
I would define this resort as old fashion (its made of wood, giving you a taste of living in village houses), roomy (i was living in it with my cousin, and the bathroom is super spacious), clean (the beds were all made up when we arrived, and never once did my sinus problem act up, which means it is not dusty) and most of all it is value for money paid.
With the amount of money paid, you get an amazing view over looking the ocean from the verandah of the resort. Also, there are hammocks along the stretch of the beach for you to just lay, chill, sleep / read! Peaceful, relaxing, and quiet is what I would describe this place.
Just take a walk down the stretch of pathway and you will also get a chinese restaurant, a malay cafe, a cyber cafe in case you need to send out some important emails, shops for you to get your souvenirs and necessities from in case of emergency, and also water sports shop, where you can sign up for your snorkeling and diving session! I am an adventurous one and I thoroughly ENJOYED my norkeling trip this time as the guide was very patient and he definitely knows his stuffs by taking you to the best portion of the island for your snorkeling outing. My word, the view underwater? TOTALLY AMAZING!
In the evenings, Sunset view is absolutely breathtaking as well. Just lay on the hammock and watch the sun set into the horizon as rays of orange reflects across the ocean. (:
Food was simple, but lovely for a hungry stomach.
One thing I would encourage, is to bring your own snacks in case you're hungry late at night as the shops closes pretty early. Bring mosquito repellant as well if you're one with a sensitive skin.
All in all, it was a great escape experience and i definitely got the relaxation i needed, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
