A fabulous place. Great beaches, good accommodation (we had a room looking onto the pool) and very cheap. We found January not a good time as most things including dive shops were closed. Very friendly and helpful people. Snorkeling of the rocks on the northern end of the beach was awesome. Downsides, vast amounts of litter everywhere, a lot of... More

Definitely, this is the worst resort I've ever been. No house keeping, terrible meal, impolite staffs, poor internet connection. everything was terrible. In addition, they didn't serve our inclusive meal, their excuse was luck of food! Then, they forced us to buy cash on meal. No way! If you don't want to ruin your trip to Tioman, I strongly recommend... More

This is a run down place, remember to bring your insect repellent as they comes super useful. There are too many lizards catching you by surprise too.... I was staying in a room that the shower head is just too low ( I am not tall at all) and my friends are staying in a room where this the toilet... More

A Moderate Resort with very friendly staff members. Bed was clean and comfortable, but bathroom needs renovation. Carrying an insect repellent would be handy. We did the room booking through the travel agency in Kuala Lumpur and, therefore, the cost was much higher than the resort would actually charge. Don't expect the sea view from the windows of your room... More

We have just returned from a wonderful trip stay at Paya Beach Resort. The trip was a wonderful experience as we received great assistance rendered by the friendly staff. I would want to express my appreciation for the help Mr Zuresh Sing and Mr Chong gave to our family. The kids truly enjoyed every single moment with all the activities... More

Tioman Island is BEAUTIFUL and we decided to stay at the Paya township as it quieter and less crowded. Tioman Paya Resort was OKAY. It feels very rustic-kampung style with the wooden house by the jungle. The management were very nice people in helping us get boats, supplies, water and WIFI. We were not too sure why we could not... More

The good thing about this hotel is definitely its house reef. You dun have to go far. And if you are lucky, you can spot sea turtle too. It's a big place with different types of room to suite different budget. Notice improvement on the buffet bar, the food is covered! Some lacks of service: 1) Welcome drink though prepared... More
