Snorkelling is the best past time activity you will be surprised to see such beautiful marine life. The panuba Beach has a Pier so one can enjoy diving from it and swimming in the sea. The pier has water taxis catering to guests to and fro movement

This review is meant for JA Travel. I think for the price we paid we deserve more. Four of us signed up for a 3 days two nights package to Tioman (Panuba Inn) with JA Travel for a total of SGD 1060 (including 2 buffet breakfast, 1 lunch, 2 dinner, 1 snorkeling trip, return ferry and bus transport). The price... More

The panuba inn has the potential to be great but poor service and old rooms let it down. When you need to ask a question you feel like your disturbing the staff as they sit smoking and watching soaps most of the day in the 'restaurant'. Breakfast is advertised at 8am but 9am came and it still wasn't ready. We... More

This place is very detached from entire island. It is set middle of jungles and you have to trek a bit to get to civilizations.Hands down the best snorkelling beach. If you are looking forward to spend quiet time , look at sea, snorkel and relax. This is good. You can climb for 10 mins thru mountains and get to... More

Exactly the type of place I was looking for. Only needed a bed and somewhere to eat and the rest of the time I was either snorkeling or relaxing on the beach. It's not luxury by any means, in fact a little bit run-down but the cabins are only metres from the jungle so expect ants and geckos in your... More

A serene place to relax and enjoy nature. The rate is also reasonable. One can take their own sweet time exploring the nearby areas and even go for a nice swim in the clear crystal waters.

Small bay which does get the waves in from passing boats. Lots of dead coral up front and you have to be careful for sea urchins which is prob on all the beaches. Fish are everywhere and it doesn't take long to see live coral. There's only 3 sun loungers. More fun to sit on the jetty instead.

I have stayed here several times but stayed here on my last trip because Salang was packed with holidayers. Panuba, like most other resorts, is a family-run business. I have stayed in the 'D' rooms as well as the 'SD' rooms. Panuba is probably the only ferry stop that uses a wooden jetty. It has a private beach, like a... More

The walk from ABC to Paunba Beach is only around 20mins by foot through a very mild hiking track, I did it in thongs/jandals but was sure to watch where I was stepping. We notice a nice hotel there and asked to look at a room, we were given a key by a hotelier who was not happy they had... More
