Surprisingly good”
We went at the beginning of monsoon season so half of the rooms were empty which and it stil feels reasonably busy. Would not go there in the peak season as it must feel owercrowded. Breakfast was better than we expected. View from the seafront challet was lovely. Room was clean and when we asked for the room to be maked up, they did proper job. We missed a fridge in the room. All staff members were nice, polite and helpful. The low tide is an issue only on the side further away from the resort, there is a nice island you can walk to during low tide and take nice photos.

It was a very pleasant stay!”
We booked the hotel without knowing that it is monsoon season, thus we really do not know what to expect, especially after reading the reviews for Tioman during monsoon season are really bad. However when we arrived, the staffs are very friendly and helpful. Their service is really efficient and prompt. Especially our Tour Guide Mr David Ng. He provided us with lots of help and gave us really good suggestions and advices for our itinerary. He even took time off after his office hours to bring us around for local food as most of the shops are closed on the island during this season. During snorkelling, he also kept a look out for every single one of us, especially those who is not really good at swimming as he is really concern for everyone’s safety. As we were on the way to Mother Willow he also shared a lot of local stories and history. He is really a responsible tour guide! Overall we are really satisfied with Paya Resort. Highly recommend to stay there!

So far I've stayed a few different resort at this Tioman Kampung Paya, so far experience is not the best of the best, but I'm satisfied with it. Even though the air cond has some issue on the last day of our stay, but staff are very efficient and fixed for us immediately. Will come back if the price is still as now.

Beach Villa Room”
We booked Beach Villa room on start on moonson period so there’s a few people on the island. The Beach Villa is newly build and nice location because it is literally in-front of the beach. There is not much activities to do here. If you want a simple place just to relax and away from busy city, you can come in this island.

Physical integrity endangered by other guests; facilities old, worn and dirty”
Booked some days in advance and got some seemingly good price for the 4 star rated hotel. It's definitely not worth those 4 stars. Facilities are rather old and everything is looking quite used, also not really clean. Worst: almost got beaten up by some other guest. They partied till late, when I asked them to turn down volume around 3 am those drunken guys freaked out, throw beer cans at our windows and tried to break our door to beat us up. Security not intervening for minutes; door withstood, but was highly damaged next morning; music kept playing till 5:30; had no sleep at all; really feared for our health. Second worst: all around the hotels plot there’s been trash everywhere; villagers burned it, even on the beach itself; the bay’s southernmost point is a stinking dump, also regularly set to fire. If you care for environment or your health, don’t come here!

Best for diving and hotel value for money”
You need to see what actually room offers, even in case of superior chalet booking there will be no water bottles and no WiFi (surprisingly). Paya beach not much activities and dining options, best food is offered @Beach club restaurant by Paya resort itself. Simply, Paya beach is good for relaxing & diving only. Cheers Shouky

Super location, adequate facilities in resorts, cordial staff”
Rooms are pretty okay. Dim lights, limited items available in the room. Resort and restaurant are nice. Very limited vegetarian menu available for Indian Vegetarians (although veg pizaa was really good), otherwise (non-vegetarian and sea food) food was really delicious. Swimming pool is decent. Half of the restaurant and pub was under construction due to off season. People going to the resort should enquire abt the season which they are going. Please please enquire ferry details before booking the resort, we had a hard time managing ferry timings. They reply to the queries very quickly. Overall it was a good stay, but could have been better, if they could have provided better rooms.

Value of money but compromised by WIFI/Strong signal in rooms”
The rooms were clean and nice, and the location is peaceful. However coming from city, I could spend at most a few days here because Paya Village itself is very small and could take around 15 mins to walk from one end till the other end. You might want to go island hopping so that you don't get bored. Tioman island itself is made up of a few villages and islands. Food choices here are amazing as there are many cheap stalls with great sea view. Also, one HUGE problem I faced was that Wifi isn't provided in the rooms. I feel that wifi in today's digital world is not only an advantage, but in fact it is a necessity. Even when we bought our own data, it is hardly useful because the signal itself isn't strong in the rooms. So I urge Paya's team to make an investment to install wifi in every room, so that customers may come again. This is a constructive feedback.
Reviewed October 22, 2018
Dear Hani Thank you very much for taking time to write and your kind feedbacks. The wi fi signal in the island has been an issue for a long time. The telco is in the mist of installing a tower to improve connectivity and we are looking forward to its completion. :)

Average Holiday - Bad Rooms”
For the spot booking we made, and low price, got what we paid for. Not much to say about hotel.. Average hotel / resort. The room (chalet on stilts) was tilted, shower drain blocked.. Food edible (we had most of the meals out of the resort), facilities (especially swimming pool) not clean. Beach was OK - with tide pools sufficient to keep the kids occupied/interested for hours.. watch those mantis shrimp.. water visibility (diving & snorkelling) not bad. We managed to spot turtles, big cuttlefish and many other tropical fish by snorkelling. Managed to spot even black tip reef sharks in one of the dives..

The room condition is out of expectation. Is not value for money but the place is very good as the beach is just infront of the resort. Is a good location to see sunset. There is a long beach and the sea water is very clear. Staffs there are very helpful in order to help us to arrange for the boat. Breakfast not so attractive.

This place is located right at the beach with great view and lot of restaurants around it. This makes it very convenient.. Although the beach is rocky, its clean and good place to snorkelling or take boat for any adventure sports. Regarding hotel, its average with nice cottages which need upgrade though.. Reception was not that friendly or helpful which is an area to improve. But other than that it was very good.. Nice food restaurant at the beach with pool, board games and music... Good fun.. overall good package as descent price..

Awesome holiday with my other half! We enjoyed the wide range of activities available at the resort. Especially, snorkelling in the water. One great tip is to bring along bread, so you can attract all the fishes. Another memorable moment was the waterfall trek behind the resort. Will definitely be back again soon!
