Initially we booked for 4 nights in Bushman but ended up extending to 3 more nights. We stayed in a beachfront chalet with a nice sunrise view. The staffs were very helpful and the Homemade local pizza is a must to try!!

Overview : The Bushman is basic. Very basic. I say that not to be mean, but just to be accurate. That may suit you, perhaps not. These are old chalets that have very dated furniture, shoddy beds, barely functioning lighting, crumbling bathrooms, stained mattresses, and curtains that only cover half the window, so don't expect privacy. Now, having said all the above, is that ok with you? For some, that is ok. In which case you won't be worried. On the upside, the location is stunning. You open the bedroom door, right onto the beach. Not metres away. Millimeters away. Simply gorgeous. The sand is soft, white and an absolute delight.. The onsite cafe operates extremely limited hours. Assume it's closed far more than its open. Fact:. you will be bitten alive by sandflies. These are different to mosquitoes. They are around 24/7. That means morning, noon and night. There are no hours of the day they will not get you. There is no escape from them. All you can do is either coat yourself in commercial insect repellent or their in-house coconut solution. Sold in bottles. Are either of them effective? Partially. We tried both, and it was a partial success. Note: sand fly bites hurt way more than mosquitoes, form a hard bump, and itch like hell. For 10 days. Added to this we are fairly sure we woke up each morning with bed bugs. Cant 100% guarantee you that's what it was, but felt pretty much like it was. Scratching for a few hours, with suspicious tell tale marks on our bodies. Conclusion:. It is a dream location on the beach. The sea is crystal clear, though does get rough in the afternoon. BUT:. Accomodation is beyond basic, poorly maintained, old, and shabby. Perhaps try it once. For 3 days

Spent four nights at the Bushman. The chalets are right on the beach, at a quiet end of Juara Beach. The chalets (we were in #4, not sure if all are the same so I’ll just describe ours) have two double beds and a single bed. Also A/c and fans. At night I felt fans were sufficient as it rained at night and cooled everything down. Also had lovely hot water showers in the bathroom, mini fridge and a great balcony with couch to lounge in. We all loved running around, playing cricket, swimming, lying In the hammocks, and relaxing. There are some lovely walks too - waterfalls to swim in. There were a few waves so that meant the water was not crystal clear close to the beach. One day we organised, through bushman, to go to Coral Island on their boat and go snorkeling. Thoroughly recommend this - the snorkeling was amazing and we all had a wonderful time. We ate at a few different cafes but decided Bushman was our favourite. Delicious food and really friendly staff. Will definitely return. So quiet and laid back with a real family feel. Recommend cataferry - much more spacious and doing social distancing. Felt like luxury compared to their competition (Blue something).

We loved the rustic getaway. It was a time to disconnect and just enjoy beautiful Tioman. The chalets are right on the beach. The sandflies found us, but it got better after the first day or two. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We tried to check out various restaurants and really enjoyed the Mia and My cafes. We went on some of the excursions and we all had a great time. Other establishments down the beach don’t have the same friendly atmosphere. Bushman was a real escape from the hub of city life.

I returned to Tioman, 27 years years after my last visit and again chose Juara beach. It was a bit busier than back then but still relatively quiet and without loud music. Bushman was a great place to stay being a little further from the pier than a few other places. The chalets were simple but comfortable enough with good air con and a fridge which was essential in the heat. The staff were always helpful and the place had a good feeling about it. We ate the majority of our meals here and there was a good choice with plenty on a plate. They will run you to the ferry for a small amount 25RM each for us. We very much enjoyed our walks to nearby waterfalls and into the forest where we saw huge lizards, squirrels,fruit bats,many birds and even a snake swimming in a stream. Check out the turtle info centre, a 15 minute walk away.
