Recently spent a weekend on the beautiful private island that is Pulau Joyo. Dedy Goh (who I met from a trip to Pulau Pangkil some years ago) was, as usual, very helpful with all the arrangements knew a few of us from our Pangkil trip - its always nice to be greeted by a smiling familiar face! The stay is just effortless and the staff on the island honestly cannot do enough to help, we were exceptionally well looked after. We had some fantastic meals including a beautiful dinner on the beach one night. Accommodation is basic and as expected of island life! But clean, comfortable and authentic - we were in a bale on the beach ! There is everything you need; from a very well stocked bar, watersports equipment, wifi, sound system, beautiful pool and sun loungers, an abundance of fresh fluffy towels, delicious freshly cooked meals three times a day, afternoon tea, massages. Cannot recommend highly enough - go !
