Japamala Resort, Tioman

One of the most wild, green and leafy islands of Malaysia is Tioman. An hour flight southeast from KL, in a twin propeller plane, you are straight away overwhelmed by the beauty of the nine islands that form the Tioman Marine Park.

We stayed in a great boutique resort and the one and only Relais & Chateaux (a collection of luxury hotels and gourmet restaurants) in Malaysia: Japamala Resort. After a 15 minute boat ride on the turquoise blue sea, we discovered our Tree Top Chalet, perched high above the luxuriant jungle canopy, yet situated only a short walk up from the white sandy beach. An authentic and charming little haven, with outstandingly delicious food, typical of a Relais & Chateaux.

  1. What a place. I would like to visit this lovely place. Can anyone guide me through the process of reservation in Tioman hotels and flights available?

  2. Hi katlyn, it’s very easy. Either call their number at central reservation or maybe you can do it via relais & chateaux website. Good luck and enjoy!

  3. Dear Kate,

    Depends from where you are coming from. Obviously if you’re coming from overseas then it’s nice to relax there – you have great dives, and the food at japamala is fantastic. But 7 days may be a bit long – there aren’t loads of activities if that’s what you’re looking for. But it’s great if you need 7 days to relax by the beach, read, swim and dive. Have fun!
