While i did not stay at Sofia By the sea, i can say they do a awesome job. I dived with them over a couple of days at East Divers which is owned by them. The staff is the same. This is an un-commercialized hub, so now hurry, no rush and a lot of attention and followup. The diver is... More

One of the nicest people oriented centres I have been to. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms basic but after a day diving and a little liquid refreshemnt from the nearby duty free shop, the sleep was fulfilling. Recommend to anyone!

We stayed in Sofia by the Sea for 3D2N in one of the beachfront chalets and it is by far the best place we have stayed in. The rooms are basic with a bed, have A/C, hot water shower (yes, they now have hot water shower!) and basic breakfast (toast, butter, jam, coffee/tea) but the chalets were so close to... More

I didn't stay at Sofia by the sea however I dived with them (East Divers). The dive centre is located just beside the reception. Unlike previous experiences at other dive centres, East Divers is small and uncommercialised. It is not a dive factory where mass capacity of divers come and go. I was there with 5 other friends for over... More

We spent 2 nights in a beach front cabin (RGT120.00 per night). Didn't dive as we prefer to snorkel but we were impressed with the dive set up and equipment. The accommodation is very simple but clean with A/C and en suite toilet and cold shower,. The beach is one of the best on Tioman and there is a long... More

Ok so the thing that makes the place excellent is not it's accommodation as such, but more the experience and welcome you receive. It's so refreshing to stay somewhere that has not been adapted to 'western style'. Here you get what you feel to be a true malaysian experience. The accommodation is basic but has everything you need. It's a... More

It was my 1st trip to Tioman. This chalet is located near the airport and tekek jetty. There are a number of convenience shop and restaurants within walking distance. The chalets are all stand alone units and pretty basic. Rooms comes with air-cond, 2 single bed, mosquito netting and attached bathroom. Didn't like the fact that there was no where... More
