Hey thats fine with me... it was cold at night especially with the sea breeze, and u need the cold shower after your long day at the beach. We... More

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!

We would like to thank Julie and Simon for hosting us, despite our unusual check in time of 3AM. They are very hospitable. The resort is at a very good spot for relaxation, a beach in front and a river behind. We loved the hammocks, the kayak and free wi-fi at the lounge area. The resort does not have an... More

Our 4-night stay at River View has been an amazing experience and the highlight of our holiday in Malaysia. The location and atmosphere are fantastic. The chalets were clean and the beds comfortable. This accomodation is great for couples as well as families; as long as one is able to respect the tranquil nature of Riverview. The food of the... More

This place is beautiful and it could be a perfect stay. However, it seems the owner felt very much disturbed by our kids and perhaps tourists in general. He didn't take care of the environment for the guests. He worked on his boat parts at the floor of the guest terrace with tools, dirt and a terrible solvent smell for... More

Unfortunately we stay for 2 nights only while time was missing.. Would spend my entire summer in a Riverview Chalet.. The view is amazing, snorkelling is only fun, the beach is clean and quite, peaceful and one of the most beautiful I've visited in Malaysia with Perhentian. The place is perfect and the owner is just lovely, very welcoming and... More

Juara must be the best place on Tioman and River View is one of the best places to stay there. It definitely has the best location in the end of the beach and road so that there is no traffic and its extremely quiet. Not a party place at all, great for relaxing though. As a single traveller I might... More

Hi, thank you for your review. We are very pleased that our guests are now helping us to recycle plastics. We do have to charge for Kayaks, masks etc. Wear and tear and the harsh environment, means that equipment needs replacing regularly. Living on a remote island, this is quite expensive. So glad you enjoyed your stay in this lovely... More

We stayed one week this summer with our 2 daughters (6 and 3 years old) and it was wonderful. The owners are very kind (thank you very much again Julie) and the location is perfect (quiet, peaceful, white sand, transparent sea, everything very clean...). Moreover, there are a lot of good restaurants very close and a small supermarket, very convenient.... More

A great thank to Riverview for our honeymoon! The room and beach is very clean and safe. (For me, this is the most beautiful part of Juara beach). I worried of the sand flies before arriving. And then i found that nothing is harmful. The host - Ms Julie is so friendly and helpful. Moreover, she encouraged us to take... More

Riverview resorts on Tioman is really the place if you are looking to relax and enjoy the island. The beach in front of the resort is perfect for snorkeling and swimming. The resort does not have a restaurant, so you have to walk on the beach to find a suited restaurant. In our opinion, the smaller restaurants were better than... More
