We stayed at Bagus Place a few days and the experience was amazing! We stayed at the "flying fox" bungalow, which is perfect for 2 to 4 people. The place is clean and the staff is super friendly, they help you getting the most of your stay, and they organize activities almost daily. They also help with the transportation to... More

We stayed at Bagus for 3 nights and from the moment they collected us to the last waves of goodbye we could not have felt more welcomed. We stayed in Rock House Chalet, which had a 'living room' with a coffee table, daybed and fridge, and a seperate bedroom. The rooms have fans, but no air con - but we... More

I went to Bagus Place after a hectic week in Singapore and in desperate need of a peaceful getaway. While it wasn't particularly easy to get to Bagus from Singapore, it was absolutely worth it and just made me wish I could have stayed longer. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful - really taking the time to show you... More

Thank you so much to the Bagus staff for making us feel welcome and special. We enjoyed our stay so much and can only recommend staying at Bagus when coming to Tioman, perfect location for a hike, great relaxation opportunities and lovely food. We especially enjoyed the boutique experience and eco friendly attitude. We hope that the turtle we found... More

We treated ourselves for our last night on Tioman and were collected from Genting by their pick up service. Their boat is clearly signed with their name and we were welcome by a couple of members of their staff. Bagus truly looks like paradise. We rocked up to the bar on their jetty and were asked to choose a welcome... More

Great secluded location with snorkelling available straight off the peer. A little expensive but worth it for a one off treat. We stayed in the top lodge which would be recommended for all. Very friendly staff and scuba and snorkelling your available.

Arriving at Bagus feels like going back to your hometown where everyone is happy to welcome you and stop for a friendly chat. With only 9 chalets, it is cozy, intimate, you are free from group bookings that can very often ruin a quiet holiday. We welcomed the total absence of cell phone coverage, internet and television. It is indeed... More

Sometimes its difficult to explain why we fall for a hotel or resort, that is not the case with Bagus. First off the staff, the welcome crew are professional and fun and carry a great smile all day long. Always eager to help and share a laugh. Second the setting is stunning. I never got tired of staring at the... More

We stayed at Bagus Place for 2 nights in April and had a truly lovely time. The staff were friendly and so welcoming. They come and pick you up from the ferry terminal and know you by name. The location was beautiful, you arrive by boat have a great view of the rainforest, hills and where they meet the beach.... More
