Travelling with our two sons (aged 9 and 7) means we usually don't get to relax much. But Swiss Cottage Tioman was different. Even the kids got into the swing of it and managed to soak up the stress free atmosphere. As other reviews have noted, it's not fancy, but the room is not the reason you stay here. The location is beautiful and even though it is quite close to a busy part of the island, it is a total oasis. The staff are really friendly and helpful and gave great advice on everything from restaurant recommendations to the best snorkelling spots (their advice helped my kids find 'Nemo' at a beautiful spot right off the beach!). The snorkelling off the beach out the front of the cottages was excellent and safe. My husband did some diving with the Tioman Dive Centre that operates out of the site and he was thrilled with the quality of the service. Our veranda looked out over a lovely garden that attracted butterflies, lizards and monkeys. There were a lot of cats, which we loved. Breakfast was nice and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance for lunch and dinner. Do book ahead - I saw a number of disappointed people turned away because it was full.
