I was there with my family.
They are coming to fletch you at the airport by boat.
It take 20 mn to be at Japamala.
They offer you a cocktail in the boat and when you arrived in this resort.
The room where we were has her private swimming pool and jacuzzi.
The place was nice and clean, you have to close doors because of monkeys.
The sea is nice, sharks are moving very close from the beach and you have to swim far to see something interesting.
The only bad things I see is the food:
Italian restaurant: beautiful place to be, the food is nice but the service is very slow. It took 1h30 to have our orders, bolognese and the fish of the day.
Vietnamese restaurant: very spicy, be careful, ans slow, but nice.
Rooms made before 10:30AM
There is no privacy, people are coming to see our private swimming pool without asking.
Electrical cables between us and the beach, not very nice.
3 swimming pools ?? What for? To increase the price ?
They are empty most of the time ....
The house, Pengolini need to be refresh.
The beach need to be clean, it is a pity to see bottles, bags etc ... on this beach.
Please make an effort.
Something funny happen, when we are leaving the Japamala by boat, and when they drop us where we have asking, we can see that we are not any more customers ......
This resort is in the average. For this price we should have a perfect service. It is not the case. Will not come back.
- 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
