We visited the riverview for our second time. Set in between a river and a beach, it is a perfect place to relax and explore the nearby coral reefs and waterfalls. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. Since we visited during the monsoon season there were a few mosquitos. We asked for some mosquito coils and staff were quick... More

I ended up staying here through work and was blown away. Fab location, you can fall out of bed onto the beach (you may have inadvertently fallen asleep in the hammocks) and the sea is crystal blue and warm perfect for a morning swim. The river view is equally as tranquil and great for sunsets. They have a climbing Cragg... More

Juara River View is an ideal place for those looking for peace, quiet and simplicity in a beautiful natural setting (although there is wifi for those who really can't live unplugged!) The location, at the far end of the northern part of Juara beach on the mouth of the river, was superb. It was wonderful to wake up to a... More

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
