Swiss Cottage must be the most relaxed accommodation i’ve ever stayed for 9 nights, situated on a beautiful beach in Tekek. The staff are really helpful, very informative and extremely friendly. The beautiful wooden cottages both on the beach and slightly further back have comfortable beds, choice of Air-conditioning or fan and a relaxing balcony for that perfect sundowner listening...

We went back, this time to a beach hut room with ac and it was just as lovely as we remembered from last time! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, some even remembered us from last year.

We stayed here for one week for a diving holiday. Getting to Tioman is a bit of a hassle with the one unorganized ferry, but it is well worth it. We were greeted very friendly at the reception (everyone at the reception speaks excellent english) and the room was already ready. We stayed in the air-conditioned terrace room T5, adjacent...

This is our second time staying at the Swiss Cottage, this time at the sea view bungalow. Room was satisfactory, and our favourite part was to sit at the balcony, day and night, to enjoy the sea breeze, listen to the waves, read and simply chill out. Felt so relaxed!

Well located, well furnished, and well organized, with a rustic-chic feel. Snorkeling right off the beach. Breakfast included. The location (10 minutes' walk from ferry landing) in the village of Tekek is very good--much nicer than places on beaches with only one or more hotels, and gives many choices of restaurants. If you tire of the water, there is a... More

While the hotel itself is ok, clean, simple but comfortable, it is inhabited by sixteen disgusting cats. They are everywhere. They beg for food, they scratch. They do their business everywhere. They lie and sleep in the dining area- just today I saw one scratch itself and all of its fur went right on the eating table. They smell awful.... More
