Ella's Place
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Found Ella's place after walking to the end of Salang beach. The basic huts are among hammocks and palm trees that fringe the beach. It is a 5 minute walk away from the main end of the beach which means it is a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. A huge bonus was that the wifi stretched to the rooms and onto the hangout areas on the beach.

We stayed here for a week and loved every day. Ella's family who runs it are some of the best people we met on our journey. We missed our ferry one they and they helped us do all the calls to work things out for us, -nothing seems to be a
problem with this family.
The bungalows are simple but you do not go to Tioman to stay inside and they also serve a good breakfast here.

Had a peaceful and very comfortable three day stay at Ella's Place. Beautiful setting at a great price, Ella & her family are extremely helpful and welcoming. They cook a mean breakfast in the morning. My favourite part of Ella's place is the view of the sea when you walk out of your room, and the hammocks right outside. Would recommend this as the top place to stay if you visit Salang!

Room Tip: Rooms have a fan (don't expect aircon) and you might struggle to connect to Wifi from your room...

We came without a reservation and looked at rooms at about 6 or 7 places before choosing Ellas. This was not the cheapest we found but the only place cheaper was really rotten. Because of some local holiday the prices were higher everywhere. We payed 70rm for a basic room with fan, bed and private shower. There were 2 quite comfortable plastic chairs on the porch and it was right by the ocean. It was worth walking to the last place on the beach - nice and quiet! We had breakfast there and for the price it was OK. Don't expect too much from the sandwiches, though...
Would recommend the place if you don't need it to be fancy!

When we arrived in Mersing, an agency told us that there were only one budget resort in Salang, and that we had to book the accommodation in advance. Bullcrap. There were at least 10 different options in the village, so after two days we left the place we stayed in and checked in at Ellas Place instead. Why? We had a look around everywhere, and according to us, Ellas place is both clean and cheap, and maybe the best budget place to stay. It is the second last place on the beach, which means that it is more quite there. Don't know what it is like during the very high season though. The day before we left (around 20/2) the high season started and the village was invaded, so I guess we chose the right time to visit.

We loved Ella's place. After scouring the island for places to stay it wasn't the cheapest but we liked being at the far end of the beach and the ambience of the many hammocks hanging from the palm trees.
We had an air con room with beach views which was a little pricey but comfortable. Our room wasnt cleaned during out stay (4 nights) but we had a brush on our balcony which I used each day.
It's a family run resort and we found them very friendly when they were present. They have the most adorable baby monkey which they have adopted which provide us with hours of entertainment!
It's located about 5 minutes walk from all the restaurants/bars which was no problem. We would walk to the beach down there too.
There's not much to do on the island. We went snorkelling and rented a boat from a local guy called terry who is stationed near the pier. He was awesome and we had a great day.

they do their best, but its only money what make this people doing hospitality business.
The older lady, mummy of Ella, told us at arrival all kind of stories, which turned out to be all lies..... a pitty.
The beds are ok, but the constant nouse of all the little children from this family, made us decide to leave earlier than planned.
the food was salty, took extremely long to b served and the sandflies all over the place are sickmaking.
