“Peace”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

A hotel in a peaceful village. Me and my friend stayed there for 4days and they had the best service. Really good food that we never aten before. The owner and the family are very wonderfull people. Really careing and helpfull. Its so close to the beatch that you can fall asleep to the waves. And at their beatch its a good snorkeling swim. Its a calm and beautiful place to stay, nothing you never will forget.

Thanks for everything Aischa and Zamros!!

Aisha thumbs up! A Malay kampung without much accommodation amenities but with excellent service. Wonderful place for fishermen and tourists who want a peaceful lifestyle. I wouldn't have noticed this place until our friends brought us on this trip.

Kg Mukut is a quiet malay village in the south of Tioman where Sri Sentosa Chalet is located. I would never have gone there until my sister (who is a repeated customer) introduced me to this place. The chalet is clean but do not expect amenities like what they have in a 4/5 star resort styled accomodation. It's a very simple and basic (bring your own toiletries and towel) chalet, although there's aircon and fan. Be prepared for possible power outtage and sometimes, the hot water may run very slow( in that case, you can always have a cold shower as the water comes from the natural waterfall).

Travellers expecting a secluded, exclusive resort with 5 star amenities (eg Japamala, Bagus resort) should note that this is not like those at all. If that is the expectation, Sri Sentosa is not the place for you. Sir Sentosa gives you no frills, it is first and foremost a clean and simple chalet set in a malay village, a humble and innocent place where you will be met with genuine hospitality from the heart.

What sets it apart from the beautiful hotels and resorts along its path is the excellent service they provide. The owners Zamros and Aishah are sincere and very genuine. And I might say, rather resourceful as well! Once, we were hiking across to find natural beaches so we could tan, swim and snorkel, however dark clouds were approaching and heavy rain was likely. Aishah managed to find us a speedboat back before the short thunderstorm, otherwise, it would be another 2 hrs trek in rain through the jungles back to the chalet. In fact while we were on the speedboat back, Zamros and his staff were on their motorbikes going to one of the resorts where we stopped to pick up anyone who is tired. Such is the attentiveness to their guests!

As Kg Mukut is in the south, we needed to travel about 15 mins by boat to the Marine Park. The journey up north is beautiful, you pass by the twin peaks, some natural beach and also some upmarket resorts. After snorkeling, we had packed lunch (nasi lemak). Thecoconut rice plus eggs, fried groundnuts, and sambal squid were yummy!

And the second day we even explored new snorkeling grounds(Aishah's new find) and managed to see 2 large humphead parrot fishes ( probably 1/2m in length), white sea urchin, smaller parrot fishes, clown fishes, giant clams etc...( I didn't manage to see the shark but someone saw a reef shark). Bring your own snorkelling gear if you are a snorkelling enthusiast, otherwise, snorkels and lifevest are available for rent for $18 per day.

In front of Sri Sentosa chalet are some rocks which we found natural oysters. That set off some excitment in us and we went oyster "harvesting". The oysters were small , probably tiny, but really fresh enough to just pop them in your mouth after shucking it. It was a fun and free experience.You can even call it our appetizer before dinner.

On the last evening, we had a sumptous BBQ seafood dinner of lobsters, crayfish, prawns, flower crabs. Now, where can you find such an awesome deal? No alcohol or smokes are served or sold here as the owners are religious. Not an issue for non-smokers like me! :) However, if you are, they have areas designated for the smoking but bring your own ciggies.

Sri Sentosa is often fully booked during peak periods, public holidays mainly by locals and Singaporean. Its no wonder, for the 4D/3N stay (including the BBQ dinner on our last night cost us only around $270 per pax for a group of 10(4D/3N full board).
