This place is simple and beautiful. The beach is an all-natural style with lots of coral and full of sea life while still containing just enough sandy beach to enjoy a "beach" moment. This means you are at the mercy of the tide, but that's another naturally beautiful element IMO. There is a nice jungle trek that brings you to the top of the hill to overlook the resort and ocean; it was challenging and was a great opportunity to see lots of wildlife (lizards, snakes, birds etc). The resort offers a few excursions (only a few), mainly revolving around snorkelling and diving. The diving shack service was amazing, they are fully certified and the equipment is great. They were very friendly, professional, knowledgable and genuinely cared about you having a good time (they fulfilled my dream of swimming with a shark!!). We did a stop over into one of the villages I wasn't expecting (left my wallet at the reort as we were snorkelling), and one if the tour guides actually loaned me money to enjoy the area (he offered, I didn't ask) ... How great was that!! The room was really nice and clean, new construction and fully air conditioned with a separate ceiling fan over the bed. The resort actually emailed me prior to my visit to ensure I had my travel in order, which I didn't, and sent me all the links and recommendations needed .. They even booked my Ferry and gave me very detailed instructions. If you are looking for an 'adventure' destination with endless excursions, I suggest moving on. If you are looking for a relaxing, untainted, natural destination, this is the place.
The main complaint would be the lack of a real store/shop where you could buy snacks, drinks, sun bock etc. they have a mini gift shop (open upon request), but it has nothing really in it. You have to basically go to the surrounding villages for supplies via boat. The resort main staff was very "average-fair", but that was a trend I had noticed all across Malaysia. The staff have a tendency to automatically nod and say yes, even when they obviously don't understand a request or question, making things frustrating and confusing. They ran out of bottled water for the guests (if you need water in your room, you have to get it from the main complex), and they recommend bringing water on the snorkelling trips .. So that was annoying. The menu lacks the local seafood options I would expect from a sea dependant resort, the menu is very "westernized". Over all, no show stopping complaints, but enough to make the overall resort rating a "great" instead of it's "amazing" potential.
Being the only resort on that part of the island the beach was fairly quiet.A very relaxed resort we really enjoyed our stay.
There was no wifi in the room and very limited food options available
Staff really friendly and helpful; the best check in i've ever had (music and drinks on arrival), boat transfer included, location is beautiful and very close to the jungle (really nice jungle trek), beach is small but nice, comfortable sunbeds everywhere, sea view room is excellent. perfect for a short and relaxing stay. food is good
the hotel is really expensive, spa extremely expensive, restaurant with practically European prices, not much variety on the menu; suggested for not more than a week (you could get bored after some time, not so many activities/excursions).
Location, comfort and staff
Food (quality and diversity) was not up to standards
Restaurant was great. Jungle trek was a real workout! They have their own path and it is more challenging than I though, or maybe I am just out of shape. That is what I was looking for though and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff are helpful without being obtrusive. I think this is a good place for families.
The beach (in the water) is not the best for swimming as it is a bit shallow and rocky. Younger travelers may want a place with more of a "scene."
The island The staff, the ambience , the reef, the trek in the hills
The bathroom in the restaurant...this needs to be cleaned and deodorized
Altogether this was the most precious and wonderful experience, from beginning to end. The staff were the kindest and most helpful that I have ever come across before...
Having to leave
The location resort and beach are beautiful. The water is a lovely shallow turquoise with coral and wildlife. The swimming pool is beautiful too. Forest bungalow we stayed in was modern and well equipped. The spa facilities and service were great too
The resort can only be reached by boat - which on the one hand is fantastic because its quiet but it also means getting to the local villages is difficult and activities book up quickly (boats are max of 12 or 15 people) so book them a day in advance
Location Rooms with direct access to the beach Privacy of the hotel which is only accessible by boat
The service was poor (amazing waiting time to have food and drink even if the restaurant is empty) Price is very expensive comparatively to the poor service
Tioman Island is beautiful. There are a few well spaced resorts along the coast and the center of the island is mostly wild on steep mountains. Tunamaya is a very nice resort with it's own safe drinking water facilities and excellent restaurant.
I didn't like the long trip from and back to Singapore. The island is located fairly close to Singapore bur the border crossings, bumpy roads, inefficient ferry ticketing and boarding takes 8-1/2 to 14 hours.
No mobilephone line Need more activity
A very nice and beautiful resort, nice view, great place for sun lovers.
We paid RM1180 per rom per night for the "Villa", but the villa is much much smaller than i expected. However, its clean and well maintained. If you travel in big group, you should order snorkelling trip in advance. We have 18 pax, the booking was full, so they chartered another boat from a cheaper resort for us, the snorkelling equipment was so old and dirty and broken, most of them cannot be used, so we have to snorkel without the goggles. And guess what, they didn't even have flippers for us. As most of our kids are snorkelling for the first time, i asked the boatman to show my kids how to use the equipment, he simply ignored me with a smile... We paid rm140 (adult) and rm80 (child) for the snorkelling, we expect better quality (equipment) and services (since other resort charge only rm60 per pax) but it turned out to be quite disappointing, if not for these, the snorkelling was excellent with the beautiful corals and fishes swimming around you..
We really liked the resort seems to have taken a lot of the feedback from previous reviews, so we had a fantastic time. There were free drinks and finger food at the pool in the afternoon - which was amazing. Boat service at reasonable price and staff super helpful.
The transport to the island was very difficult. Food in the restaurant was a bit expensive compared to quality.
Location, staff, cleanliness, activities such as snorkelling.
Pick up service from the jetty. We had to wait for more than an hour. Very few options for vegetarians in food. We had to eat the same pizza, sandwitches, pasta for all the meals. They were understaffed for peak capacity leading to delay in service in restaurant.
Quiet and peaceful
The way to travel to Tioman is annoying. Not very accessible
Friendly Staff, location, atmosphere, singers
Very welcoming and helpful staff. Beautiful villas, very clean and well looked after. Fantastic with the coral reef just a few meter out from the beach. Great snorkeling. The dive-center were very good. Competent diving-instructer. Arranged also trips to other islands for snorkeling. Fishing-trips. Very good spa! Nice junglewalks. Peaceful. Lovely restaurant with excellent service. One of the best places we ever visited.
Really can't find anything to complain about (which is amazing for a Malaysian resort!) We have stayed at quite a few places since living in KL but Tunamaya definitely rates as the best. I am hoping the management keep up the maintenance and don't let the place fall into disrepair like many other Malaysian "resorts".
Friendly staff. Clean room. Good food. Afternoon cocktail. Sunset. Pool.
Beach too many rocks.
Awesome setting below the twin peaks with doorstep access to the in house snorkelling. We paid the extra for the beach villa and recommend this for the sea views and sounds from bed. Very knowledgable, ecologically sound and friendly dive shop. Lovely pool, especially when not too busy! Very friendly and helpful staff with adequate food and refreshments for a weeks stay.
Initially wasn't a fan of the sea wall between villa and beach but realise fairly essential to protect said villas from occasional significant battering from the waves. Apperantly this was a rare occurance.. Food, as stated above, was adequate, including for one vegetarian, but we all know Malaysian cuisine isn't world beating.. At breakfast I think hard boiled may mean uncooked with regards to eggs! We came from the UK via visiting friends in Singapore. It would be a whole lot easier if you could fly direct to Tioman (from Sin) but the ferries from Mersing and the legend Mr Jacky the taxi driver worked well.. Overall had a great time and agree with 8/10 rating.
The warm & friendly staffs at Tunamaya left a great impression in my mind. They are very accommodating to me and my two daughters. Nice seaview from the restaurant. Food was good especially the seafood buffet.
The resort should do more fogging because there are plenty of mosquitoes and sand flies around. The Dive charges quite costly for a less than half day trip out to the turtle sanctuary for RM$500.(which was quite a disappointment). There was nothing much to see at the turtle sanctuary. 15 minutes is more than enough.
The room was really nice and clean. The staff are friendly.
The pool was very small and not very clean, couldn't go for a swim in the sea because of the rocks and stones, not suitable for walking and relaxing on the beach
Good service and beautiful resort.
The ferry timing to and fro is quite bad. It seems the company running the ferry service cannot control the crowd well. They didn't give clear instructions to 1) pay for ferry ticket, 2) fill declaration form & 3) collect boarding pass before queuing for ferry. Then the ferry was an hour late. Same fiasco happened on the return trip. Ferry did not show up until more than 1 hour late. It was full and they had to drive a smaller ferry to bring the rest of passengers back to Mersing. When back at Mersing, we saw the Bluewater 10 ferry idle at the dock. Terrible.
Villas were beautiful, food not bad. Pool was nice when there weren't any kids.
menu wasn't anything special and you are very isolated. Getting a water taxi is costly and not always available. Too many kids. Pool bar never open, diving company seemed a bit of a rip off...I felt there was just too many little things missing to really enjoy this resort.
