The moment we arrived at the Tioman airport via Berjaya air, we were greeted immediately with smiles from the staff who waited patiently for us and brought us to the resort via a big and comfy boat. When the resort was within sight, it just took our breath away. Sandy beach with lush greenery at the back plus a nice view of the twin peaks. We stayed at the family beach villa, and we were so lucky the get the best room in the house! We just walked straight to the beach. The room is big, spacious and everything we need is available. Toiletries is well-equipped and the water pressure for shower is very strong. It's great to know the resort got their water supply from the spring water from the mountains. Talk about natural mineral water! The beds (queen and super single) are very comfortable. Pillows are very comfortable, and they gave a few hard and soft ones for you to suit your needs.
The staff are the greatest! They made the resort felt so warm and welcoming for my family and I. We were greeted with smiles everywhere we go and this made all the guests to do the same, and thus we are able to make friends with other guests as well. Mohan, is a great man who makes sure guests are comfortable and needs are met. Chef William and his team, whips the best mouth watering dishes, and we just ate and ate while we were there. As a coffee drinker, their brewed coffee is the best. I must have 3 cups of cappuccino every morning. Sofia, Vessie, and other waiters and waitresses (sorry I forgot their names) are just pleasant and ready to serve with a smile. Norliza, the reservations manager, and the front office staff are always smiling. Had been chatting with friendly Mr. Gan, Mohan, William and the gang during our stay there. The resort has Xbox Kinect for the kids and an internet room for web surfers.
We went jungle trekking led by John and Ken, and they are very knowledgeable with the jungle. We also went for a guided snorkeling led by Mark and Zaki. We felt very secure and safe with them as they went into the water with us and always made sure we are safe. They took extra care of my kids. Zaki brought me, a non-swimmer, to look at beautiful corals, and for that I'm truly thankful. It's worth to go for the snorkeling trip. You can also arrange for other trips like round island, diving, etc with the resort.
The resort is quiet and very private. I felt secured while staying there and it's so unpretentious that I can walk around barefoot and no one will bat an eyelid. It's also good to know they are the only "eco-friendly" resort in Tioman, and waste water are treated before it's released.
We loved our stay there and will we come back again? Definitely!
