My partner and I treated ourselves to a two-night stay at Bagus Place after spending a few days at Juara beforehand. We initially debated whether we should stay at Bagus, because it's a little pricey - but in the end we were glad we did. The resort was worth it for the location alone: we particularly loved the gorgeous wooden... More

Nice place, warm atmosphere, good accommodation: my 14 yrs kid and I stayed a week. Rosie and Vivian are excellent to welcome and make their guests feel at home. Food is great and homemade, the tree house is a spectacular experience and a great view. Thks and I hope we will come back!

I have pending this review for a month to let myself more room to reconsider what I am going to write here. A natural chalet with a lot of window, but cannot open it, as there are a lot of monkeys. Always hiding in the mosquito net, because of no air con, feel stuffy. First of all, they have attitude... More

One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Beats the Maldives and the Seychelles for me. The resort is located in the most stunning location. Beautiful beaches and coves meet the sea which is full of coral and marine life. The mountains in the background make the backdrop amazing. Sea of the beach is a little rocky... More

Bagus Place Retreat has been designed to blend beautifully with the Tioman environment, with wooden cottages built around large rocks, natural rainforest and beaches. We stayed 3 nights (would have preferred 4 nights) and I was a little hesitant to book a property with no air-conditioning, however we safely slept under the mosquito net with the shutters open in our...

We stayed here 4 days with two of our kids and their partners and we all enjoyed it very much. Contrary to many other places we visited there was a large choice of beverages in the bar (with an experienced coctail mixer). The view is absolute fantastic (even with the twin dragon peaks regularly disappearing in the clouds) and the... More

A beautiful, genuine place perfect for relaxing with family. If high quality means to you genuine hospitality, being surrounded by a clean, well maintained natural environment and getting away from it all then you will love it. On approach you can hardly tell that there is a resort as it is has been so tastefully developed in harmony with the... More

I want to start off by emphasising that I am not at all comparing this to 5* resorts in more accessible places, but having stayed at a fair number of similar rustic style resorts, both in Malaysia and the region, I felt sadly ripped off after our stay here. Unfortunately, our experience really did not match up to the amazing... More

After much research, especially on TripAdvisor, our family group (2 adults and 2 teens) selected Bagus for a 4 day visit. We found what we desired, and a little more. Depending on weather, daily temperatures, wind, a person's temperament, personal priorities for a vacation, Bagus could be the spot for you too. Since there were at most five, to the... More
