    Best place in Tioman for a couple getaway! ”
    We stayed here for 3 day 2 nights trip in the Jungle Luxe Sarang. The room was just awesome. Just beautiful. The bathroom was gorgeous. And the place was just so peaceful. There is so much I could say. But yes, it is so worth it. Yes, it’s pricey. But I and my girlfriend got to spend such quality time together. And the hosts were great. We were treated with utmost respect, care and warmth throughout our stay. Just love it. Some of the cons are, Food. Pricey. Good food. But they are expensive. The seafood tomyam, spicy and sour perch, pad thai, thai green curry and rice are must tries! The private plunge pool needs cleaning. I understand that it’s an open pool, but cleaning the pool before guests checking in would have been appreciated. The beach isn’t that nice to swim. Full of dead corals. Snorkelling isnt worth your time either in this area. Pretty boring. But you could do it for passing time.

Hats off them being a superb multitasking in different scope. I see passion and teamwork that keeps them going. That makes our stay even worth in that tranquil location. Thank You!

    Disappointing and rip off”
    I don't even know where to begin. I can tell the staff mean well, but it is extremely overpriced and not as advertised on site. Maybe things were better 10 years ago, but clearly this is an aged establishment charging same high rates. 1. When we arrived I inquired about spa treatments (one of the reasons we chose that hotel) and they said their spa person is away so no spa. Holiday almost felt ruined due to that as we rarely take breaks and chose this hotel for it's spa facilities. 2. Beach was full of rocks and we couldn't swim in ocean. There was no info from hotel on when tides would be high and decent enough for us to swim. On our 2nd day when we asked about tides, receptionist pulled out a chart and showed us that on that day high tides was 8am to 11am. If they announce this or tell guests the day before some of us can actually plan for early morning swims. When asked if there was a boat that could take us to a decent beach one person said boats are full for the day, while the receptionist said that all beaches are the same and this is the best beach so no point taking boat anywhere. 3. For RM1500 a night, hotel room doesn't even cater conditioner. TV downstairs had weird distracting vertical lines (which they later replaced thank you) and TV in bedroom upstairs didn't work at all. 4. They say complimentary Henessey daily in room, but we only got it on the day we arrived. 5. Furniture was old and weathered with loose ends sticking out. Understand if they can't replace it (or need to), but a simple pair of scissors could do the job. 6. Jets in jacuzzi don't work and according to staff it's just "for show"?? 7. Cocktails were weak -- when we told them if they could make it proper they said okay, and then when we signed off on bill they charged us for 2 drinks as they said they had to give us a double shot. Some clarification on this before making the drink would have been handy. 8. Hotel aircond leaking and woke up on 2nd night as the water falling ou

    FANTASTIC STAFF & SERVICE”
    We stayed at Japamala Resort end of Dec to early Jan 2017. It was fantastic, firstly the staff were amazing, so friendly and gave us superb service. Definitely recommend to stay at PENGHULU HOUSE or SEAVIEW SARANG room. The food was awesome, so fresh and tasty. Loved the free cocktails on the jetty 6pm - 7pm The resort is very clean and well maintained. On our last morning went snorkelling from the jetty, early before breakfast. Water was flat calm and no one else around, I finally got to see the reef shark - Magical moment. The snorkelling is great off the jetty - there is 1 coral with just Clown fish.

    We stayed in two separate seaside rooms and had the most pleasant and relaxing stay. I can not express how friendly, inviting and personable the staff was. A quite off the path getaway with beautiful snorkeling, kayacking and Swimming right at the hotel. The food was also amazing just prepare for a late dinner but trust me it's worth the wait! Definitely one for the books and somewhere I hope to return one day.

    Japamala - Disappointing experience”
    Hospitality is atrocious. Staff was quite rude and condescending. I will never go back to Japamala. Nothing great except for what is natural there, that is, the beach and the jungles. Food is ridiculously priced and the quality is below edible standards.

    VIP treatment, picturesque views”
    I took a lot of great pictures. The room was so cozy. Customer service is par excellence. Food was great. Free cocktails from 6pm to 7pm while watching the sunset. Reception lady was nice. There are things for improvement that I think are beyond the control of the management: (1) Poor internet (2) The lousy ferry service. The ferry asked us to be at the port at 3 am for the 4 am departure. No staff was there to assist us. No one informed us that it was delayed. It arrived at 6:30 am. Those 3.5 hours could have been spent sleeping and resting instead of waiting in agony with no bit of information about the arrival of the vessel. The was no apology nor explanation why they were late. Overall, minus the ferry service, Japamala brings you memories you will go back to in the years to come.
