“Awesome getaway with excellent service.!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

It was a 3 days 2 nights trip and frankly speaking, I wasn't expecting much.
I must say, every staff in Tad Marine impressed me every single day.

Making the reservation was professionally handled! Fong Uin, the sales representative, patiently and promptly answered all my queries. She even did the reservation so quickly, I was taken aback.
I was constantly thanking her during the entire process.

Our luggages were brought down from the speedboat and the staff told us that they would send it to our room.
Great! As our bags were really heavy.

Check-in was a breeze. Keycards were already prepared before we arrived.
Our rooms were prepaid.

Later, we went to the dining area for our lunch (included in package). Chef Alex was so hospitable! He introduced himself and told us to be careful of sand flies. He also told us that he would be our guide for jungle trekking.
A person with multiple skills!!

We went for 2 snorkelling trips. Nizam, who is the Operation Manager, was our guide and he took really great care of us.
Another person with multiple skills!
Snorkelling area was not as great as expected, but we managed to make up the disappointment with laughters from the crew and Nizam.

Food during the 3 days was amazing!!
We couldn't ask for anything less. We felt so much at home and thoroughly relaxed.
No MSG was added and every dish every day was different.
WE LOVED IT SO MUCH!!!!

Would love to go back again.

Thank you Tad Marine!

A getaway trip with 3 of girlfriends over the weekend to escape the hectic city life in Singapore and we choose tad marine as it's just afew hours ride to the jetty, and by speedboat we finally reach the resort!

Upon reaching, I'm so surprise that the sea is so crystal blue! I know I'll love this place the moment I step foot out of the boat! And I'm right.

We were brought to our sea view rooms with the staff helping us with our bags. The room is huge, and most importantly, the toilet is clean!

We had our lunch overlooking the sea cooked by Chef Alex, he came out to greet us together with Mr Nizam. The food during our stay is all so delicious! The portions is a lot for us girls but surprisingly, we finished it cause it's just too good.

Went for our jungle trekking and It's a good experience as I've never jungle trek before. All was worth it when we reached the waterfall! It's feels good to swim in it! Feeling refreshed!

Day 2 we went for snorkeling. The water is clear but the corals are not as beautiful and colorful than the other resorts I've been to in Malaysia. Nizam brought us to another island to have fresh coconut juice before going to the second round of snorkeling.

Overrall, I love my stay at Tad Marine! Enjoy getting to know the people there! I didn't feel like leaving on the last day. And I'll definitely be back again for another short getaway here!

It was a 3 days 2 nights trip with 3 of my good friends for a short escape of our city life. Found this hotel through fb and read through the tripadvisor reviews looks not that bad so decided to book this island resort. We took the speed boat which provided by the resort from tanjung leman to Tad Marine Resort about 30 to 45 min.

When we reached the resort, we saw the infinity pool which was super clean. My friends felt like jumping in ~ All the staff there super friendly, they always great and smile with you when you meet them. We stayed at the sea view deluxe room for 4 person with 2 rooms connected. The room very clean and comfortable but our toilet got stuck, they repair it within 10 min. That's fast! When I open the door or the windows, the sea view just in front of you ~ you can even sit on the high chair to chill which just outside your room while enjoying the sea view.

The very 1st thing to impress me from this resort is the CHEF of the resort, Mr Alex! His food is really damn nice ! It is not buffet style but more like home cook style. His famous food like tom yam soup and the butter prawn really taste super GOOD !!! The best is that you won't feel thirsty at all after you eat his food ! As totally can't taste any msg .. The 2nd day he prepared the seat for us to view the beautiful sunset while eating our dinner ~

We went for the jungle trekking on our first day and guided by CHEF too. CHEF even prepared the insect repellent for us to avoid the mosquito ~ It was a great experience whereby we can't experience in city. Although it's not easy to walk but we managed to survive !! The water from the waterfall very cooling ~ super refresh ! We went snorkeling on the 2nd day but a bit disappointed as the corals not as nice as redang island. Plus the sea water not very clear on that day. Also, we went back the same snorkeling spot for our 2nd trip.

Well, if you really looking for a good snorkeling spot, I won't suggest for pulau tinggi. However, if you looking for a place to chill and relax with the super nice sea view and good service, I definitely will recommend Tad Marine Resort. Not only CHEF Alex, Mr Nizam also giving his excellent service to us. He is very helpful and always showing his concern for our needs. I totally feel like staying home for these 3 days 2 nights.

Alex and Nizam also bring us for a walk to the beach to see whether can catch any sea turtle on our last night. It was memorable ~ although we didn't manage to meet the sea turtle but it was really a great experience to walk on the beach in the middle of the night. I met some of the villagers and chit chat with them too ~ They are super friendly and funny !!

Overall, we were satisfied with the services, the food and the people there ~

Pulau Tinggi - Mersing Johor!

Nice and silent island, crystal clear sea and beaches. A nice place to stay and get out of the cities life. Friendly and good hospitality services provided by TAd Marine resort! Eg: delicious dishes recommended by chef, welcome hospitality which serve you like a king or queen in the island.

Was a 3 days 2 nights stay in this beautiful resort! was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful the staff here. Whenever they see us,they will greet us with smile!! Especially the Chef and front desk!! Didn't manage to go to jungle trekking cause by the time we reached the resort,we're too tired to do jungle trekking... During the snorkeling session,was stung by sea urcine(Landak Laut) and luckily the staff there was very helpful and he teaches me a 'traditional method' in subduing the pain..feel great and good to go after few hours!!
The room was very comfortable and clean!! Facing the white sandy beach and crystal clear blue ocean!! The pool was very clean!! The view from the canteen was very mesmerising during sunset!! The foods was awesome,fresh and taste very goood!!Especially the butter prawn and tom yam!! During night,get to see the stars up above the sky and during the last night,had a walk by the beach accompanied by the staff and chef in search of sea turtle as it was the season of laying eggs and one of the villager saw a sea turtle laying eggs the previous night..but too bad we didn't manage to meet any sea turtle during the night but it was a great and chilling experience.

Mixed feeling about this resort. I went twice, first time in August 2012, i love it so much that i decided to return again in April 2013. I love islands, thus i have visited couple of islands in Malaysia. I found TAd online & didn't regret my visit.

It was new in 2012, clean modern room, big swimming pool, clean beach, clear seawater, etc. The staff service was excellent too. It was so new that we were the only guests in this big resort. The staff took us to the waterfall, and we had fun swimming in the cold spring water. The food wasn't exactly fantastic, but is edible. We felt like royalty with only us in the whole resort. The down part during 2012 was the weather, it was rough that we couldn't swim or snorkel at all. Oh, and also, we had to wait for the boat for an hour because of the rough sea. The TV power was gone before 12midnight, reception was empty during bed time, inhouse phone was not working too.

The 2nd time i return, it was still not crowded. Probably just us and another 1 - 2 room guests. This time, we can tell that the resort was lacking maintenance. The pool looked totally uninviting, the beach has countless of sandflies that stopped us from hanging at the beach. This time, we went snorkelling out of the resort. But the moment i got into the sea, i felt stinging sensation, I remembered it should be some kind of sea insects that could be biting me, so i jumped back to the boat within 2 minutes.

Overall, i will still say is ok to visit once but equipped to prevent sand flies bites. It has no crowd, 100% privacy if you hate crowds.

It was a 4 days 3 nights short get away party trip with friends.

We stayed at the Teratai beach front room, the one closest to the reception area. The room is very comfortable, clean and everything in this hotel is very new. We have a good time chilling at the beach & pool. The beach is white and sandy, turquoise blue water and clean.

The buffet for the first 2 days was not up to the expectation but on 3rd day all the guests checked out at the same time and left 6 of us. The chef come and met with us. We discussed about the food. He specially cater to our order. The Pei Pa Chicken suggested by him is fantastically impressive and we love it so much. The continental breakfast was great especially the bake cheese bread.

The bistro karaoke room has good sound system. The song list was recently updated. We have the whole bistro karaoke to ourself on the 3rd day and have a good time singing while drinking beer. The pool table there need to be fixed.

The only draw back about the resort is the sand fly. Bring your mosquito repellent and make sure you are covered well. The bites will take about a month to recover and very itchy. The staffs are very helpful and provide us their personal medicine to help ease the itch.

Room Tip: Beach front room is very convenient and the view is beautiful.
