Bamboo Hill Chalets
Ranked #7 of 19 Hotels in Pulau Tioman
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We stayed in one of Bamboo Hill Chalets 70 MYR budget room with fan. The room was i clean but did not have hot water (we didn't really needed this). The room had everything we needed. Staff was very kind and talkative and helped us if we had any questions. Laundry service was very good. I my opinion of the best places to stay on ABC, Tioman.

Our first visit to Asia - and we fell in love with Tioman Island off the east coast of Malaysia. The Bamboo Hill Chalets are as well looked after as the guests - situated right on the beach with many restaurants a stroll away. Walks through the forest behind are exerting but interesting. Saving up to fly out there again.

Room Tip: All the cabins are perfect.

During April we went back to Bamboo Hill Chalets after 4 years... It was like coming home!
This facility is just the best! Our chalet, no2 was even better than the last time when we were in chalet no1. The view over the bay is spectacular. The atmosphere peaceful. (No aircon but we sleep with the doors open. ) The food at their restaurant, ABC unforgettable. We enjoyed the fish, freshly caught and prepared on the barbeque! Excellent! (The barbeque chicken was my second choice) We ate there every night and we are already missing it.
We made so many friends there. We found the management very helpful, friendly and fluent in English. There is so much to do or just to sit around and do nothing. We enjoy the snorkeling, abundance of sea-life, walks to Selang, Monkey Bay and Juara (A long one but worth it) Many take diving lessons and enjoy deep sea diving. The facilities at Tekek is more than suficient. There is a very well stocked shop. The bakery serves freshly baked treats.
We flew in this time from KL with Berjaya Air. Their service is excellent! On the way back our plane gave a bit of trouble and we were delayed. They went out of their way to make all effort to make it as comfortable as possible for us at the Berjaya resort. The rest of the trip great. (Last time we came by bus from JB to Mersing and then by ferry from Mersing to Tioman. Both flying and the ferry worked very well for us but flying saves a lot of time.)
Lastly a tip... Book at Bamboo Hill Chalets because they are normally fully booked.
We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in no 1 and no 2... No 1 is closer to the sea and I think no 2 has better view. The steps...

A perfect couple get away, owner very friendly and customer service is top notch- no aircon but sleeping with doors open over looking the sea is beautiful in the morning and at sun set, a quiet holiday at the edge of the jungle- bring a good book and some walking shoes, very simple but perfect for some time to chill out. We were traveling Asia and it was a really nice break from the usual busy hostel set up

It was a year or two now since my family visited Malaysia for our second time. We love Malaysia and are even planning our third trip. We are two adults and two girls in their late teens. We stayed at Redang and Tioman islands and Bamboo Hill was where we spent ten nights at on the north part of Air Batang beach on the simply lovely Tioman island.It is a stunning setting which isperched between giant rocks and bamboo. Hence the name. We had hut no.1 which was directly on the beach. The beaches on Air Batang to be fair are not the best in Malaysia, in fact there not even the best on Tioman but its a nice relaxed village with plenty do do. The beach is quite decent directly in front of Bamboo Hill but a little further its quite rocky. There are five huts to rent and the sixth hut is the reception with a library and Internet. Lin the lady who worked at reception was very friendly to us all and she arranged for us to go out on snorkelling trips etc.
Be prepared to see lots of wildlife too as the huts backs onto deep jungle and the sounds of the jungle whilst laying in bed takes a night or two to get used to. After that it's great. Monkeys jump on the roof early in the morning and there's even geckos on the roof inside the hut . There are also six feet monitor lizards walking around Tioman too but thankfully they are scared of humans and run away from us rather than to us.
There are several different restaurants and a couple of bars on Air Batang beach but things are very basic here. All serving western or Malaysian food at unbelievably cheap prices. We ate mostly the local food which was nice and spicy.
ABC restaurant is about thirty yards away and serves the best banana pancakes ever for breakfast. The spicy sambal dishes are also our favourites.
I would highly recommend Bamboo hill if you come to Tioman. Each hut has its own balcony and the views are amazing.

Bamboo Hill Chalets have a great views and that is the only positive about the place. The rooms are very basic and gets very humid, big gaps in the floors invites jungle-crawlie and gets pretty scary at night.. the people running the place are friendly but agian the basic courteous is missing.. They do claim to accept credit card but we were cheated as they double charged me by saying the machine is not working after sweeping it and took RM 70 for a night.
I did a multiple followup on mails but never got my money back .. bacause of this we only spent a night at the cottage..

Room Tip: 1,2 and 3 are the better Chalets.
