We stayed here for 4 nights in November and we loved every minute! The TreeTop room was gorgeous, the food and service on the island is first class and the resort location is just stunning!! The best place to stay on Tioman, the sunset from the jetty is magical!

The resort was beautiful! very earthy, wood elements and rustic. There are no phones in the room, just tv, dvd players and wifi. It's a great way to escape the rush of city life. Sea Chalet 16 view was amazing!! It's the closest one can get to nature. Every morning and night u hear the waves. Beautiful feeling to sleep... More

Not much shopping and able to spend teenage children for bonding with the parents. No telephone and wifi is unstable when outside the room. Food are expensive but not value for... More

I stayed for 4 days 3 nights at Japamala Resort Tioman. It is beautiful. I got a good Stay 3-Pay 2 deal too. However, it is not the cheapest hotel if one is looking for a value steal. That said, you do really get excellent five-star service from the staff. At Japamala, you're literally away from noise. There are no... More

Bit late posting this review but what a place, the images don't do the experience justice. It's paradise, but delivered in a warm, friendly and inviting way. Yes it's rustic, yes there's no phones in the room. If that's what you're looking for this destination is not for you. The staff could not have done enough for us, from the... More

This resort is a great success being rustic and natural whilst providing great 5star service: amazing setting, very comfortable accommodation, great food, friendly but professional staff and even in monsoon season a relaxing, quiet get away. Highly recommended if you are ok with the close proximity to real nature.

Firstly - this is an absolutely stunning hotel. The location is absolutely beautiful, and the rooms (we were in a jungle sarang ) really feels like being up in a tree house! The big downside however was the hotel staff - if I'm paying 5* prices I expect 5* service, and it actually just felt like we were being treated... More

We had a great experience at Japanala Tioman. =) View was awesome, staff were friendly and food was good. The best part of this resort is you won't get annoyed by other guests. Not much visitors there due to the limited number of rooms. Would recommend visit this lovely place at non-monsoon period, cuz the weather condition, water tide and... More
