Paya Beach Spa and Dive Resort
Ranked #10 of 19 Hotels in Pulau Tioman
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We spent 3 nights there and we were very happy with the room(superior chalet) which had a beach view in the front and a pool view in the back. With balconies on both sides you can take your pick on which view you want to sit and chill to. The pool is located in such a way that it never gets too hot whereas its almost impossible to swim in the ocean between 12-2 due to the blinding heat and low tide (though some diehards do try), the pool is always accessible. They also have a security guard stationed at the pool and another patrolling something I have never seen at any resort in Malaysia which makes it kind of comforting. I do wish the rooms had net curtains though so you wouldn't have to draw the curtains when you want privacy as the views are lovely. Even though the glass is treated its still possible to see from the outside. Food from the hotel is a hit and miss, our grilled sting ray and baked seafood with mash were good but NOT the risotto but its reasonably priced by hotel standards. Wifi is very patchy and unpredictable except in the beach bar. There is a super family run Chinese seafood restaurant with fresh seafood , very reasonably priced which is not very visible as it is set a little further back than the others. To go turn right from the jetty (the resort is on the left). There is also a spa which is quite good and if you have a treatment between 10-3pm there is a 20% discount.

Room Tip: Ask for the superior chalet with a beach and pool view

I stay 2 times at Paya beach. It's a good value for money : room for 4 people is quite ok, bathroom needs to be improved but it's correct, the second bed is a sofa bed, ok for children (we went there with our two children aged 6 and 4). Food can be improve too, but you can find something for everyone, and price are correct. Snorkeling is very good and beach very nice. You just have to take shoes to go in the sea to not being hurt by corals. You just have to relax and enjoy.

Stayed @ Paya Beach Resort for 3D2N (Package). An amazing experience. A big THANK YOU to the Paya Diver's Cove Team members - Shafiq and Remy. You guys are the best!

We took the 3D2N package, so the first day was pretty much free and easy. Having not planned much for this vacation, we were pretty bored after settling down. So, we asked the receptionist what activities they could suggest, but they came up with ONLY 3 options: either Spa, Snorkeling or the Beach! Disappointed with their answer, we were walking around pretty aimlessly and that was when we met Shafiq and Remy at the Dive Counter, we had a casual chat and they suggested to take a short walk to the Rockfall (10-15mins walk). So, we went back to get changed and surprisingly, Shafiq was waiting at our door step to take us there! Was really touched. We had a great time at the Rockfall and was a day well spent.

2nd Day - Snorkeling Day! Another staff worth mentioning here is Ms Yati, our snorkeling team supervisor. Very polite, friendly and very informative. She answered all our silly questions and put a smile on everyone's face on board. She shared her experiences and definitely made our trip felt 'much shorter' with all the fun we had.

On our last night there, Shafiq and Remy joined us for supper (after their work shift) till late night even though the next day was gonna be one of their usual hectic weekends.. We had so much laughter, so much fun :)

This vacation wouldn't had been as much fun without these amazzzzzingggg people around.. Thank you Shafiq, Remy and Yati for making our holiday a memorable one. xoxoxoxo..

# We stayed in a chalet facing the beach. Beautiful and clean beach, spacious room but food and hygiene needs improvement. The Seafood restaurant next to the Dive centre, a MUST TRY! Food was amazing - worth every penny we paid - very fresh and delicious seafood! Thumbs up!

10 of us staying at paya beach for 3d2n, we get ourselves for 4 rooms (2 rooms for couple, and 2 rooms for 3 ppl).

The buffet not much choice and the wifi at the lobby couldn't connect during peak hours. Normally early in the morning or midnight only able to online due to the less people using the wifi.

Check out time is able to extend 1 more hour upon requested.

Room Tip: new wings room in front of the pool.

This is my first visit to Tioman Island and stay at Paya Beach resort and I was so impress with the resort. Our Room was facing the beach and sea side. The Resort Manager Mr. Zuresh has suggest to us with a Island hopping stay. The island hopping is fun and enjoyable.
Thanks to Mr Zuresh for the suggestion of the island hopping, Will definitely be back here for vacation

Room Tip: Rooms is quieter and nearer to the restaurant

I was there with my friends for two nights. I must say that the Resort Manager, Mr Zuresh made our stay a memorable experience. He have arranged for us for the island hopping which one should experience the outdoor activities. The superior room we stay is spacious and clean. The resort landscaping is beautiful even though it is a dry season, the plants and grass are green as the gardener have done a good job. Food & beverage is average, which need improvement. Should have a 24hours room service. The Pool is beautiful but should provide more deck chairs. Overall the resort is well maintain. All the resorts management in Tioman should seriously discuss with the ferry authorities about their punctuality and also the limited seating as it is time constraint waiting for another ferry, which you need to arrive earlier to get a seat.

Room Tip: Second floor have better view of the resort and beach

The place will not hurt your holiday nor will it make it memorable.What works for the Resort is the beach front,bigger land,Convenient transport but what does not work is there is no access to other part of Tioman except the overpriced sea taxi services.The restaurant has a very limited menu and you may probably get bored in two meals itself.The breakfast was good ..no complaints.One serious improvement needed is the communication skills of the frontdesk staff,They need to be more open to provide information about the island and the tours available.The staff was barely able to answer for info requested.

Room Tip: Superior rooms
