Amazing sea life compared to the rest of tioman”
The welcome was amazing where all the staff came out to great us. Room was clean and the resort itself is like your own private island. Only downside is only 2 restaurants and everything is a bit costly. I was suppose to get a free bday cake however had to pay for this also but the staff mentioned it was suppose to be free so its a bit confusing. The snorkeling was amazing but I think safety wise, there is no life guard on duty so adult supervision is recommended if you have kids. The rooms should have somewhere to dry the wet clothes as thats the only lacking part for the rooms. Beds was comfy, and satelitte tv was good but be warn no wifi here except for lobby area.

Very bad value for money”
Let's start from the good side: the hotel staff is very friendly and nice! The hotel position is also exclusive, although you are isolated from the rest of the island and can only move around by boat. Coming to the negative sides: the value for money is low. I paid 670 singapore dollars for 3 nights (sea view), and for such a price I expect good quality. The spa was fully booked for 2 days having only 2 masseuse, the diving center charges unreasonable prices (2000 ringgit for 5 hours boat rental for snorkeling; you could almost buy a boat for that price!), we had for 2 days cappuccino for breakfast and next day we were told it became chargeable 10 ringgit, 75cl bottle water in the room the rest must buy. I understand it's a tropical island, just for the readers to know there is No wifi in the room, very weak signal in the lobby. Overall, it is a nice resort (save for the diving center) but I wouldn't pay more than half what I paid.
Nice place for snorkelling and to relax. Beach villas are spacious and clean.. Agoda website states there is wifi in the room but there isn't. Wifi in public area does not work either. Restaurant manager is especially friendly and attentive. Hotel manager is very helpful. We enjoyed 3D3N stay.

NO BEACH; ONLY BEACH WAS POLLUTED WITH OIL SPILL, SEA/BEACH WAS ROCKY; ”
STAFF WERE GREAT; THE LODGES WERE CLEAN AND WELL CARED FOR; PLENTY OF FREE WATER STATIONS TO TOP YOUR BOTTLE; GREAT FOOD & CHEF PREPARED SPECIAL REQUESTS; WERE THERE FOR 4 NIGHTS AND COULDN'T SWIM IN THE SEA B'COS OF OIL SPILLAGE; GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT AFTER THE MOST HORRENDOUS JOURNEY FROM KL; THERE WEREN'T ANY FLIGHTS OPERATING INTO THE ISLAND.
Exceeded expectations ”
After reading reviews of Tunamaya I did not have high expectations. However we arrived at the port and were immediately picked up by the staff, who took us by boat to the resort. As we approached, we were astounded by the gorgeous views of the resort. We were then taken to our room which was spotlessly clean - no bed bugs as some reviews had stated, and not a single mosquito or sand fly for the duration of our stay. The beach was gorgeous every morning and you could swim out to the reef every day, and the pool was clean and a lovely break from the sea. The staff however made the trip - Tirta, Weda, Connie, and Maria made every meal time fantastic. They are lovely and attentive and fantastic staff members. Overall I had low expectations but every single one was exceeded, and it quickly became my favourite place ever. Cannot wait to return.

Awful, awful, awful”
Bad food. Bad value for money. Well-meaning but poorly trained staff. No wi-fi. Avoid this place
Beautifull beach ”
Pros Beautifull beach Early check in Great service by the staff from the moment you arrive at Kampung genting Friendly staff Many activities Cons The aircond in our room is not working, after the maintenance come and fix the aircond, the same things happen. We were sweating by the time we woke up in the afternoon. Then we called the maintenance again , and they tried to fix the prob but failed and finally we managed to change the rooms.they shud allow us to change the room in the first place The aircond maybe be too old and need to be change. Food I found something in our food when we order room service.need to improve on cleanliness. Luckily, we got free upgrade to front beach room and the sea is truly amazing. I would give 5 star but the aircond problem and insect found in my food ruining my experience.

Great Experience with our Elderly Parents”
My cousin and I brought our elderly parents for a retreat. The connecting room offered to us worked out really well, with rooms that come with modern comfort that works (good bed, toilet & shower, air conditioning). The resort also has easy access to the beach for snorkeling. We really appreciate the swimming pool as it's the first time that our mothers ventured into snorkeling. The pool enabled them to gain water confidence and learn to breath through snorkels. The staff were also happy to help. Their readiness to serve put us at ease and led to a good start for us to experience the beauty that Tioman has to offer. However, wifi access was limited to the hotel lobby and restaurant area. So be prepared to be "disconnected". Digi was not really working for my cousin, but I had Maxis and could still make phone calls and connect to internet at some spots of the resort. Overall, it was a really great experience. Excellent location for a quiet and simple retreat.

Relaxed family holiday”
We loved our stay at Tunamaya: the setting was spectacular and the snorkelling from outside our door amazing. We swam with turtles every day we were there, bar one. Food felt a little over-priced, but it is a resort and it was definitely very tasty. The staff went out of their way to enhance our stay, and special mention must be made of Maria, who even took our kids fish feeding in her own time! It’s quite isolated, but that’s not a bad thing! There is a good well-kept walking track to Mukut village, which is a great day out too.

Food price is ridiculously expensive at tunamay and food selection is limited. ”
Tioman experience for us this trip is not pleasant, the feri services from mersing to tioman is expensive but the quality not there,. Trip from mersing to kg genting tioman iw overpacked and a lot of people standing in the feri!!! Moving places from tunamaya hotel to kg genting there no water taxi like perhentian which the interval is frequent. Tioman need to charter a boat to travel cost vary from service provider whichbis cut throat. Overall tioman as awhole need to improve....and more facility need to be in places.......Beside that the beaches is lovely

Excellent accomodation on a paradise island”
Excellent resort located on the southern side of the island. The rooms are clean and well furnished. Pool and the beach were excellent. Restaurant was reasonable priced and with excellent Asian and Western food quality and taste. Truly recommended to all who are looking for a peaceful vacation away from overcrowded areas.

Though food prices were high n no other choice as isolated n only 1 restaurant available, Tunamaya ‘s personal service n staff’s great attitude was a notch above all others! Nothing much to do when waves were high but to just laze around. Can enjoy the scenery from our beach villas or the restaurant. No WiFi available n very slow WiFi at lobby but good for relaxation! Good for retired couples!

Nice food and clean resort”
The resort is nice with clean facilities. Though location is remote as compared to other resort and basically there is only one dive shop n one restaurant. Connectivity is poor as well, WiFi only available at lobby area. Fortunately, the food is delicious, breakfast buffet is different varieties everyday. Can choose to dive n snorkel at the dive centre. The staff are friendly as well. Can walk to Asah waterfall for trekking activity. Will recommend for family group who looking to relax at the resort area, away from city area.

Rocky beach , not suitable for snorkeling ”
We experienced excellent service provided by the staffs, rooms are very nice and clean, amenities provided are almost 5 star, swimming pool was ok, breakfast (free) was ok. However we had a really disappointing trip not because of the resort but rather the beach in front of the resort. It's very rocky, big waves at the sea, sorry to say I didn't see clear water. And we had to shorten our stay because there was a big oil spills by nearby fisherman boat. The entire beach was contaminated with black oil, it's the most devastating trip to beach that we ever had. No snorkelling no swimming in the ocean whatsoever. The dive centre next to the resort has an exorbitant price, rm280 / person for a snorkeling trip (5 hours 2 spots without lunch) , and we need to pay rm50/2-hour rent of snorkeling gears. . To us, the resort is good but the beach is really bad.
Dear Lisa, Sunshine greetings all the way from Tunamaya Tioman Island! First and foremost, we sincerely thank you for your time in writing us a review regarding your stay experience at our humble resort. Our staff would be more than happy to hear about the compliments on their excellent service; at the same time, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us.

With this, we look forward to welcome you back to Tunamaya Tioman Island with a pleasant and better experience.
Super friendly and fantastic location ”
The staff were extremely friendly and the beach is amazing. The snorkeling is incredible- we saw shark, turtle, sting ray , clown fish. The only minus is poor internet connection, but that is actually good so we can deconnect

Awesome and perfect!”
Nothing to complain about. Everything is perfect. Love the ocean view from our room. Quiet and feel very private. Hotel staff is very friendly. Perhaps the only improvement is to have more food variation on the menu.

A perfect stay with beautiful beach! Highly recommended!”
I've stay in Tunamaya for 3 days 2 night. Everything is perfect and superb. I love the room, love the mind-blowing beach, love the staff, love the facilities. I'm travelling with my 9 months old son, we did not book any baby cot upon the booking. But when we arrived at the resort, the staff offered us to have a baby cot for free, no additional charge. They also quite flexible with check in and check out time, they allow us to check in early and check out a bit late due to our ferry schedule. We stayed in Beach Cluster Villa, we love the room, and love the view in front of the room (crystal clear water beach). The room is clean and tidy. The beach is just 5 steps away from our room. Since we have a baby with us, this room is perfect for us because we still can have a good time at beach, while our baby is sleeping in the room. Very convenient and highly recommended for family with young kids. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect with beautiful beach!
Greetings from Tunamaya Tioman Island! Thank you for your review! The team here at Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort is elated to hear that you and your loved ones enjoyed your stay with us.

Do visit us again in the near future, we are sure that the little one would like to spend some time on the beach as well. See you soon!
Excellent Resort for a peaceful weekend & if you want to see shark (plenty of them)”
Room is great for 2 adults and 2 kids (4yrs & 6yrs old). Kids love the room. Maybe because they have the Disney channel. No internet or 4G coverage (there is super slow wifi at the lobby), but well this is a holiday, so we really can have a great break without the internet. lol... Food is quite expensive but to be honest, there are quite good. Average RM30-60 per plate. We like the pizza, cabonara spaghetti and the Penang Chay Kuew Teow. Drinks can be a bit pricey but they have the 2 water dispenser for guest use. Orh, ya... kids love the swimming pool. It's a bout 1.2m deep. And, after dinner, i will strongly advise you to walk to next door resort (Bagus Resort), as at 9am ish, they will feed the shark. Initially, I was thinking 'baby shark' or slightly larger fishes. But, to our surprise, they were a bunch of average size of sharks (maybe about 1-1.5 meter long) swimming around. Have fun!
