Arrived and got greeted with a smile. At first they assigned the wrong room to us, after checking with them we were assigned back to the room we requested. Room was located right above the swimming pool and beside the restaurant. Room was awesome, bed was clean, toilet was clean, came with a huge TV and aircon was cooling. The... More

We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the price of three nights here in April, but when it's too good to be true, usually is. We arrived having had a horrible experience getting the ferry to the island to find our room was very cell like. It was cheap but not particularly cheerful. I give it three stars because... More

Stayed at paya beach and there were a lot of positive aspects about our stay but I was aware that the resort needed to be refurbished so the accommodation in a standard room is not as comfortable as it should be. There are stagnant pools of water that at night time attract a lot of vicious mosquitos. Also the main... More

IMHO, the best resort at Paya Beach.. the rooms at the new wing (Sri Kajang wing ) is much newer, altho the existing older ones are not too shabby either... the food is normal or below par at times, and there's lots of flies around.. outside of the resort are some sundry shops where you can get tidbits, ice-cream, and...

I booked this resort first before reading the reviews in trip advisor. After reading the reviews especially the 2014 reviews, I thought I have made a wrong decision in choosing Paya Beach Resort as our family getaway. The ferry rides to Kg Paya was a smooth one even though there were many people going to Tioman. I took the ferry... More
