Japamala Resort by Samadhi is Tioman Island’s only boutique resort and one of the three Samadhi Retreat properties in Malaysia. This small and exclusive resort of 13 rooms is hidden amidst 11 acres of lush tropical rainforest, where charming Malay, village-styled villas and chalets are positioned in the most breathtaking spots.

Best described as an eco-luxe resort, Japamala Resort by Samadhi 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 fell, the entire resort borrows from nature its elements to offer an exceptional sense of paradise and freedom from the real world.

Relaxing holiday

Isolation and confortable room
Relaxing, peaceful. No cell line but has a weak wifi network. Restaurant menu is short and lacks variety, pricy. Limited transportation (only by speed boat) as jungle track is not practical for tourist

Beautiful scenery, cozy room, fantastic service
We had great pleasure staying at Japamala although it was monsoon season. The view is simply breathtaking..the staff are amazing..they really pay attention to every little details to make ur stay a pleasant ones..the food is delicious..a lil bit pricey but it suits the quality of the food served..the room is superb..extremely cozy..the housekeeping staff ensure that the room is tidy..smelling great at all times..the candles are lit..cold drinking water is replenish..The staff..James, Ayuni, Mike, Zamani and Sam were ever so helpful and friendly..we felt we were at home.. When we first arrive in our Jungle Luxe Sarang..we were welcomed by a fruit basket and coconut lengkong..the lengkong is simply delicious so we thought of ordering it from the menu on the next day..but James told us that the kueh is not avaiable in the menu..to our surprise..the next day..someone knocks on our door and delivered our coconut lengkong!!! Tq James!! U r awesome!! We have enjoyed our stay at Japamala and hope to go there again...a great resort if u r looking for tranquility and total relaxation..
