A piece of untouched paradise, it was beautiful. Julie & Simon are to be commended on their passion for keeping the area unspoilt. We enjoyed the river view lodge as you get the best of both worlds, the beach is a hop skip and a jump away from the front door whilst the river is where the little balcony overlooks... More

We got a small chalet with view over the river, where we sometimes saw monkeys play. It was very close to the beach. Juara has one of the best beaches of Tioman. Really lovely! Within walking distance there are several good restaurants and a nice cocktail bar. But you come here because it's so quiet. And it 's paradise. But... More

Hi, thank you for review. We're so sorry you got bitten by the beasties while you were here. Just to let you know, the metal bunk beds are being replaced by wooden ones. The last 2 chalets will get theirs very soon. I hope, despite your bites you enjoyed your stay and I'm really glad you got to see the... More

Don't come here if you want a luxurious room, breakfast buffet and soft white towels in the morning! This little resort, owned by a British couple, has so much more to offer :-) In my opinion Riverview's location is the best on Juara Beach. They have 3 beach chalets, in one of which we stayed, a couple of rooms, and... More

I had a fantastic stay here and definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful beach retreat. Review View is a humble, laid-back and eco friendly resort, about a 30 minute taxi drive from Tekek (approx 30RM per person). Myself and 2 friends shared the mara chalet, with comfortable beds and basic bathroom facilities (no hot water but this... More

We spent a week at River View and loved every minute of it. The location is quieter than the rest of the island so it's a great place to unwind and simply relax. The bungalows are simple but comfortable and there is a communal area where you can interact with other guests and access WiFi. It's a great way to... More

As suggested by other reviewers, one of the most comfortable and relaxing accommodation options you will find. Gorgeous location and views from the units. We stayed in two of the four that have both beach and river views with outstanding location. Chalets themselves are rustic but of reasonable size and with secluded balcony onto river. No hot water showers although... More

Hi, what a great review, thank you. The wind has now died down and the weather is back to normal, much to the chagrin of wind sport fanatics! I'm glad you had a memorable stay with us and I shal endeavour to find a decent towel supplier! Thank you once again for your review. More

Thank you Julie and Simon for a wonderful week at Riverview. You maintain an authentic paradise away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

At the end of the Juara beach, where the river meets the sea, is the wonderful, tranquil, Riverview. The owners are fundamentally lovers of nature, and it is the absence of things that often shows this. The native animals are abundant but do not pester for food because their natural life is not interrupted: they are not fed. The beach... More

Hi Jo, you were right, I did know it was you. What a super week that was. So much creativity in one small place. I'm sure Yang and Biden will always remember your family for your enthusiasm and your passion about learning traditional skills. Thank you for your review, I think it describes Riverview to a T!
