I've been to Paya Beach for at least 3 times for now because I go to Tioman quite often for diving. Honestly for the price that we paid, paya beach is not a bad resort. You get hot water shower and decent beds with air con. The food wasn't the best but you can always ordered from the kitchen and... More

My bf and I booked a 3D/2N package at this resort and we have upgraded to a full board package. We arrived at the resort at around 1:30pm and was promptly accommodated by the reception. It was stated on the package that welcome drinks were included but none were served. They would ask for a 200MYR deposit. Alternatively, you can... More

Finally I have visited Tioman Island.We stayed in the Paya Beach Resort.We were given beach front shalet. The resort itself is ageing but the corals, right in front of the resort ,are fantastic.If you like snorkelling ( and not so far from the beach) this is the place to go. Shalets are basic, food is OK.We had some problems with... More

The Paya Beach Resort is well located and right next to the beautiful beach. Unfortunately that's the only positive thing to say about this resort. The room was old-fashioned. We couldn't close the window nor the bathroom door. The food was nowhere near being delicious. But we had to eat here because there was no other restaurant to be found.... More

Paya beach is quiet. ideal for a relaxing vacation. Rooms are spacious and clean. However there isn't much food choices available during the monsoon. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, most notably the adventure guide Hafiz. He was very helpful as he specially organised trekking and snorkelling trips tailored to the needs of my group of 10 people. I would... More

The beautiful island makes up for what the resort lacks. The pictures of accommodation in the website are a a little deceiving. We booked superior room 603 and the couch looked shabby, the toilet basin was leaking and the shower didn't work properly. On arrival we waited for almost an hour for our food. One of the waiters was plain... More

Priced attractively. Food nothing great, rooms average but neat and clean. Bathroom could have been better. But the Island is so beautiful that you would spend much of your time inside rooms after all.

Great location with snorkeling directly off the beach, kampung style "resort" with big construction of new pool going on which was never mentioned prior to booking. Rooms ok, old but aircon worked good and beds were decent. Food so so, a lot of items on menu were not available the 4 days we were there. Beach nice and water clear,... More

I went to Tioman in Feb 2014 with friends. We booked this hotel through booking.com and got very good deal. It's a very good 3-star hotel on the beach. Rooms are good. They also have in-house duty free shop, you can buy beer/liquor from there and can have it in their restaurant. In fact, they will insist you to buy... More
