  • Overview
    Introduction

    Just a 45 minute boat ride from the mainland of Malaysia, the island of Tioman is home to Japamala, a luxury eco-chic collection of wooden houses, beachside villas and hillside 'sarangs' or nests.

    This boutique hotel and spa was built with very little disruption to the surrounding nature and wildlife; no trees were cut down and no rocks were moved resulting in unique villas and rooms which all have a rustic chic design.

    Honeymooners and couples can relax, unwind and be pampered as the hospitality at Japamala is some of the best you will find; drinks & snacks are brought to you at sunset, your personal pick of aromatherapy oils are used for your turn-down and you can choose to dine wherever you like.

    Activities
    Everyone loves a sundowner on holiday, so head to the nearby vantage point just a 10-minute walk from Japamala where you can watch the sunset whilst enjoying your favourite cocktail.

    A day out on the boat is a must and trips include visits to Coral Island, Monkey Bay or Renggis Island with snorkelling and lunch on the beach.

    All levels of scuba diving are available with the Tioman Dive Centre. The Samadhi Spa is designed to create a memorable sensory and visual journey, where the products are 100% natural using cold-pressed plant and aromatherapy oils. Soak in a hot tub on the cliff top, have a pedicure in a natural cave or enjoy an open-air massage.
    Dining

    You won't go hungry at Japamala as there are 3 restaurants to choose from, each in a unique setting.

    Tamarind Tioman opens onto the rainforest with the beach just a few metres away and stone Buddha statues set the theme for this Asian dining experience. Thai, Malay and Indo-Chinese dishes are prepared using the freshest local ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but don't worry if Asian food isn't your thing then there are international options too.

    Foodies will love Il Tempio, the latest addition, where hearty Italian dishes and wines are served. Mandi-Mandi is built on stilts above the sea, 100m from the beach. This open air restaurant has an international menu with an Italian twist and is where to come in the evening if you enjoy made to order BBQs.

    The overhung pavilions here are a real sun trap and drinks are served all day long.

    Perched high above the luxuriant jungle canopy, these three chalets, sleeping two, are secluded yet situated only a short walk up from the beach. These rooms offer an entirely different resort experience, in fact their very proximity to nature make these chalets so keenly sought after. Here you'll find the noise of the jungle predominates; the soft rustle of windblown leaves; the chirping of crickets and birds; and the foraging of wild creatures at night.

A day-bed built on the balcony over the cliff is designed for one to either laze around and day-dream or drift idly by on the ebbing tide and catching the balmy breeze, or simply marvel at the sight and soak up the luxuriant energy.
