The island is small and there were only few other people beside us. Maybe due to its unpopularity as compared to other island such as Redang & Perhentian. However, the diving locations here are far more greater than the other popular islands here in east coast of peninsular Malaysia. The beach is clean too and the resort is just nice.... More

We were there for 6 days with 14 divers from Germany. We were all of the same opinion: we had found paradise. There were only 5 to 10 other tourists on this island. We had a very great time with Robinhood Demowal, the chief of the diving center. He showed us very special diving sites which are nearly unknown. "Moonraker"... More

We came here on a diving trip to get our open water licenses and had extremely low expectations when we arrived. Yet we arrived in our chalet (four people could fit in to our room :)) and it was clean, with an ensuite bathroom and aircond included! The place is rustic - you really are not meant to spent too...

This little island resort had all the amenities that we needed for a quick get away. It is very rustic but, perfect for a dive get away. We only stayed one night and found the room to be clean and the staff was friendly. Food was good, although it was Malaysian, so for a westerner it might be challenging as... More

Tenggol Island Beach Resort, this review is specific to that Standard Chalet room number 16 ! I suggest that you renovate the chalet room number 16. The toilet is very dirty. The hand shower was broken. We needed to turn off the water supply. The shower, hand shower, faucet and tissue holder are all rusted. The floor needs to be... More

Tenggol Island is a beautiful and quite island not so congusted compare to Perhentian Islands and Redang Island. If you like quite and nice beach, Tenggol Island will be a island that is suitable for you. Tenggol mostly for diving and snorkeling activities. There is a beautiful coral reef on the right end of the beach with lots of coral... More

Tenggol Island Beach Resort isn't a 5-star place, you're not going to be getting an infinity pool or plush sun loungers, and waiters sending you cocktails by the beach. However, if you're here to dive, or even just to snorkel, they have all that you will need. Our room was clean and adequate, AC works great and bed was comfy.... More
