As soon as you step off the boat and onto the jetty youre welcomed by the sign "Survivor Island." Youre then welcomed by the staff who take your luggage and help you get settled in. The staff in this plaxe were very friendly the manager helped me so much I had mixed my passport up with another guy whilst climbing...

Food was very good, the staff were very welcoming and the rooms were fairly clean, EXCEPT the mattress was filthy with dirt and tiny little insects all over it and I got very badly bitten during the night by bed bugs or whatever it was that was lurking in the mattress. The whole site seems run down, strewn with litter...

I went with group of friends for the volcano mud and diving. The whole trip was nicely coordinated by the staff at KK and the island. We even had birthday cake for one of our team member. Room was clean and working condition. Staff at the island were friendly and helpful. Diving was wonderful, with mild swaying current, but the...

Just enjoyed three days on Survivor Island. The staff were helpful and the food and drink was fine if a little overpriced. Scuba staff were very helpful and looked after my group well delivering Discover Scuba courses to eleven of the group and coping with six qualified divers. Take plenty of mossie spray!

Call it luck, but we were the only guests in the resort overnight, so we were treated a little bit like VIPs. We were upgraded to a superior room on our arrival and we also got a free trip to Sandspit Island upon our departure the next day. The rooms were very spacious and the meals were abundant. In conclusion,...

Overall this is a very nice island with nature and sea activities. The staff are friendly and helpful. Snake island and the sand spit is a must to visit. The management told us that renovation works have been planned and we look forward to come back once that's done.

This resort on the Pulau Tiga island is a great place to stay while exploring the island. It was the only hotel you could stay in when I went (Dec 2015) but well worth it. You can do some great snorkeling just off the shore, magnificent sunsets, the staff is super friendly, there are monkeys and monitor lizards hanging out...

Nice and historical island. The beach was nice. The island has some cool animals inhabiting the island. The volcano trail with the mud is nice aswell. Sadly the island seams to start to decay. Seams like it was a bigger attraction earlier but that I have got its Goldens days.

We really enjoyed the overall experience here. Whilst the accommodation was basic, there were things to do with a great deserted beach, lovely clear water, mud pools, the use of kayaks, snorkelling, etc. The staff were nice and the food was good There's also wild monkeys, monitor lizards and the odd snake which actually adds to the experience. Wi-Fi was...

The island was not as beautiful as I first imagined or as I saw from the photos. It seems quite run-down and lack proper maintenance as trashes (both natural and manmade)were seen quite frequently on the beach. The resort was minimal with poor wifi connection. But it came with nice air conditioning and hot water which I didn't expect too...
