Me and another 4 friends decided to stay in salang because the reviews said it has the nicest beach in tioman. however the beach isn't that wide but enough for swimming and snorkeling.
we stayed at two deluxe rooms. the one i got was rather lousy and smelly. the mattress was awful, it was a very old mattress with springs in it. i had terrible back pain after staying for two nights there maybe due to my prolapsed disc problem i suffered months ago. if you happen to get this kind of bed, do complaint and get it replaced. however, my friends' room was much better. the beds were all in a good condition. nothing much to complaint though. i guess it was just me and my roommate being the unlucky ones :)
there were water heater, dressing table, bed, fridge and sofa table.
the staff was a little helpful though. there were mosquitoes at night thus we couldn't sleep. i asked for a mosquito repellent and he gave it eventhough not instantly.
there was one time where there was no water when i wanted to take a shower. i called the staff and he said the water piping was under maintenance. however i had to wait only around 10 mins.
we had bbq at the restaurant. it was quite good. i believe the restaurant is the most happening place at night, with good music, and big screen to watch tv and you may get the chance to see the cook dancing happily with his ladle in his hand.
this resort isn't facing the beach but it's only a few walks away.
my advice is try to find any other resort with better condition if you want a comfortable place. salang pusaka isn't the one for you. but if you're that type who isn't that fussy or just finding a place to sleep, this can be a choice for you.
tioman island is indeed a very good place to go for snorkeling. remember to negotiate before you take any snorkeling trip. malaysians are friendly. :)
