Most has been truthfully said already. The location is spectacular and the staff, especially Mighty Mike, Beautiful Belle and Sam make it all the more. The chef of Mandi Mandi makes the most authentic Italian food, and the cocktail hour and beach bbq is to die for. We could not find a fault.
Though the staff is dead honest, it would be great to add a safe to the rooms, so that one can leave passports and spare cash locked away and not worry about a thing.....which is the perfect way to spend a few days in this tropical paradise. Also a sit down style of bar would get guests talking to each other ( if they wanted to!). Breakfasts tend to get repetitive after the third day or so.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- JapaMala is Tioman Island’s only boutique resort, and one-of-a-kind in Malaysia. This small and exclusive resort of 13 rooms is hidden amidst 11 acres of lush tropical rainforest. A one-village-one-resort property, JapaMala has its own private and quiet beach. While some charming Malay village-style villas and chalets dot the jungle and beachfront, others nestle in the most breath-taking spots.Best described as an ‘eco-luxe’ resort, JapaMala transcends the experience of living close to nature by redefining it with a touch of luxury. Designed by natural streams, steep cliffs, towering boulders and where no trees are felled, the entire resort borrows from nature its elements to offer an exceptional sense of paradise, freedom from the real world. While serious relaxation is an elusive commodity for many, one can truly succumb to the healing effects JapaMala imparts through its holistic blend of sumptuous gourmet treats, intimacy between man and nature, unique spa experiences and truly unprecedented hospitality. Many say JapaMala is not just a place, but a state of mind. ... more less
