Japamala Tioman Island

Accessible only by speedboat or seaplane, this scenic eco resort nestled within the canopy of a 150-year-old rainforest is the go-to destination for escape-it-all luxury. Tucked away off Malaysia’s gorgeous eastern coastline, swimming in cascading waterfall pools, dining on stilts above the ocean and sipping on cocktails with a view of a blissful sunset is the order of the day at Japamala Tioman Island. There’s so much discover both on and offshore – spend your days scuba diving through underwater coral gardens, jungle trekking to admire the wealth of wildlife here from monkeys to monitor lizards or simply sunbathing on the resort’s stretch of honey-hued beach – welcome to paradise. 

Why we love it 

Japamala Tioman Island is divinely intimate – just 13 intimate suites are connected by a series of meandering treetop walkways and bridges, overlooking the South China Sea – so book early!

Treetop Chalet
Perched high above the luxuriant jungle canopy, these chalets are secluded yet situated only a short walk up from the beach. These rooms offer an entirely different resort experience and in fact, their very proximity to nature makes these chalets so keenly sought after. Here, the melody of the jungle predominates: the soft rustle of windblown leaves, the chirping of crickets and birds, and the foraging of wild creatures at night.
The Penghulu’s House Surrounded by the wonders of nature
Resting on the beach, The Penghulu’s House is the resort’s only two-storey, two-bedroom villa. Sitting on low terrain, this modern village-house has the jungle at its front door and the seashore, its backyard. While ancient aged boulders fashion its interior, the rustic rooms are furnished with the modern comforts of an urban home. Tall glass windows perimeter the villa, displaying the wonders of nature that surrounds it.
