We decided to change our room from standard chalet to superior as we paid 700+ for a crappy room. Its beside the paya and smelly as f. Plus there's people wandering behind our room and there's couple of alligator just behind our room. The receptionist is not quite friendly towards me and my partner. Apart from that. Our superior chalet... More

As the title suggests, me and my friends were thankful to get a Deluxe room after a one night terrible stay at Panuba Inn - you can check out my reviews about it. Anyway, the room that we got here is very spacious; it is more like a small house with two cosy rooms(one of them is actually an attic... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at superior beach front room. It was just nice for three of us to spent time together. The beach view was awesome from the balcony. The most wonderful view was at the night time. The bed is comfortable, hot shower, clean bathroom and flat screen TV. Foods were average and unfortunately there were so... More

My husband, daughter and I went to Paya Beach Resort and we were not impressed at all. The bugs are TERRIBLE! We had a snorkeling excursion booked and we were told to be at the activity desk at 8:30 Sat morning. We arrive and are told that they don't provide snorkeling gear for children, only adults. An hour later they... More

We stayed here in September to get away from KL for 9 nights - we stayed for 3 nights and returned to KL. We sat with the manager of the hotel and explained the reasons for leaving early. He is very understanding & happy to take on suggestions & we think is genuinely trying to change aspects in the resort.... More

The new superior room is great, balcony facing the sea and front entrance facing the swimming pools, spacious, bed is comfortable, hot shower, flat screen TV, air condition. BUT... as far as drinking water is concern..you may face some problems. Electric kettle is provided but the tap water is far from clean. You can see a lot of sediments and... More

This is actually my second time to this very resort. I love going to islands especially during the summer so this resort is actually a perfect getaway for those who fancy this kind of vacation. Pro : 1. Just infront of the resort, you could already see the coral and colourful fish as well! Just grab your life jacket and... More

Was in Paya Beach for a weekend getaway with friends and their family. We had 5 adults and 6 children for a 4D-3N getaway. Booked a transport arrangement from Singapore including land transport to Tanjung Gemuk and ferry to Tioman Island. The resort was a short walk from the jetty, and this trip was a vast improvement from one we... More

We were there with our baby, the superior rooms are okay, the food was good for dinner but not good at lunch. The staff was very nice especially at the restaurant. The only bad thing were the girls at the reception, not very welcoming and quite haughty...
