The hotel charges you to leave if you want to see more of the island. Ordering food was confusing, multiple times ordering food off the menu didn't result in the food that came to the table.
So many things! Jungle trek, infinite pool, stunning beaches, tons of wildlife, movie night, snorkeling adventures, BINGO the island dog!

April 8, 2015
A little far from the dive sites and dive centre understaffed Restaurant served buffet only, no a la carte available
Resort is well-designed, comfortable and attentively run Management attentive and eager to please, willing to be flexible about buffet charges

The restaurant... They have buffet for lunch and dinner, mainly Chinese food. The food isn't representative of the hotel category. We had the seafood BBQ. We had to wait more that 45min to be served, and once the food arrived, it was cold. We tired the pizza, it was underdone. The Chinese fondue was garnished with low cost ingredients, such as crab stick...
- Location, accommodation, activities, SPA... Our chalet was by the rain forest and we had a lot of fun watching the monkey.

Great resort, nothing lacking and excellent service. Good facilities such as pool, entertainment, diving center, rainforest to treek, private beach, and very nice rooms. Great buffet but English can be a challenge for the staff. Please notice that Wifi and mobile coverage is very unstable. Best recommendations.

We were not allowed to order food in the late afternoon becuase they were preparing for buffet dinner. Where else can we get food - we are confined to this place!!!! We are not given an option to order a meal, we are forced to take their buffet meals. For the price charged - the spread was not big and up to standard. They should at least have a small convenient store.
We were well greated and welcomed by the staff and they were very friendly.

Limited choice of restaurant to dine and price is pretty steep... Didn't manage to go to Asah Waterfall, although brochures says took only 20mins, in reality by foot it took a French couple nearly 2 hours to reach the waterfall and 2 hrs back to resort. Even the frontdesk said we have to hire a boat to go to the waterfall and that cost extra money :(
The resort is clean and new, super friendly smiling staff, a place just to wind down and relax. Bingo the dog, is super friendly and guided us for the jungle trekking.

- unpredictable restaurant service, meals not served as a complete ones e.g. i could wait for the toasts extra 5 mins, while the fried eggs have been provided already
- friendliness and support of staff - nice location and amenities - cleanliness - individual approach

Poor untrained service. Disregard for advertised amenities

1) We found 3 worms on the bathroom wall. The staff was reluctant in taking immediate action against that. Also, one towel was not clean. 2) The information given about trekking to a waterfall was confusing. It is not easy to find your way through the trail.
The hotel has very nice in quite location but reaching there is not easy. We spent more than 5 hours in the bus from Kuala Lumpur to Mersing and then to wait 3 hrs for the boat to Tioman Island where the Hotel speed boat took us to the hotel in about 30 minutes journey. The hotel is surrounded by Wonderful nature. You can spend your time on the beach, swing and snorkeling.

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.
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.

There was no wifi in the room and very limited food options available
Being the only resort on that part of the island the beach was fairly quiet.A very relaxed resort we really enjoyed our stay.
September 6, 2014
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).
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

Food (quality and diversity) was not up to standards
Location, comfort and staff
August 29, 2014
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."
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 bathroom in the restaurant...this needs to be cleaned and deodorized
The island The staff, the ambience , the reef, the trek in the hills

Having to leave
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...

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
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
August 13, 2014
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
Location Rooms with direct access to the beach Privacy of the hotel which is only accessible by boat

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.
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.

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..
A very nice and beautiful resort, nice view, great place for sun lovers.
