River View is not a resort so do not except splurge rooms and luxury ammenties. What you get is much more. River View offers unspoiled, honest and tranquil escape from the rest of the world. Area of River view is well maintained though rooms are very basic: no AC or hot water. But don't really need those. Or maybe you... More

Juara Beach is a nice secluded beach on Tioman island, with fine sand and a shallow sea. The resort is definitely no frills - just beds in a hut to sleep on. But that hut is right on the beach and you won't spend much time in there as you just hang out on the beach, watch your children roaming... More

River View is seriously one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. The staff are amazing and sweet people. This place seriously felt like utopia. There's just one tiny store nearby so if you need more than essentials make sure to stock up on the other side of the island. If you're looking for a beautiful quiet beach... More

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

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
