“Clean and comfy but dated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

Stayed 2 nights at the Berjaya Tioman. It was nice coming back to a clean and comfortable room after a long day out. The deco could do with a bit of updating though. The furnishings look like they've been there since the 1980s. The service staff were excellent.

The beach in front of the resort was quiet and clean but you really have to take a boat out to see any marine life. Renggis Island just a 2 minute boat ride from the resort is one of the better snorkelling sites, in my opinion. The marine park really isn't worth visiting.

The only thing I was really disappointed about is that smoking is allowed IN the swimming pool and at the swim up bar.

Stayed 2 nights over at Berjaya Tioman Resort & it was one of the best decisions! The place was magnificent, with comfortable bed & pillow that will not give you stiff neck! I would strongly recommend everyone to stay here though at night it can get a bit boring cause all activities such as scuba-diving and snorkeling can only be done in the day!

The breakfast spread and dinner spread is spectacular. It changes everyday and you will definitely get bored with the food. I truly enjoyed the delicious food spread!

Room Tip: Probably you should request at the Garden area as this is near the seaside view.

You pay a a lot really, for what you get.

Tioman island, is stunning, it really is breathtaking. Dramatic mountains, endless rainforest and of course stunning beaches and clear water not seen elsewhere in asia.

So lets go! But where to stay... Hmmm, this is where its all goes down hill. There is no shortage of places to stay but they are either rustic, bare bones and often badly maintained places ( though some are charming) or ridiculously expensive.

Traveling as a couple, then you have more choices. A family with young children is limited, very very limited.Sure Im not one who is going to happily stay in a random beach hut with temperamental water and a wobbly ceiling fan, I would like something, some sense of luxury. If you are that person, then have fun, there are lots of choices.

Berjaya Resort plays on exactly what people like myself would like. Then perform consistently lower than what you expect.If they only put some money into the resort, actually thought about things in a little more detail, weren't so obviously lazy in their approach to running a resort, then they would have a winner. But no, Berjaya is a huge , wealthy company, that seems to be happy with status quo.

Its an island with so much potential, if only the right people were running it.

Go and see it, its not a waste of time, only a waste of money.

Room Tip: Book a ocean view, deluxe room, that has been recently renovated.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for recently staying with us and your valuable feedback as it allows to improve for the benefit of our future guests.

We are sorry to know that you will not be returning to us but if you ever change your mind and give us benefit of doubt then please do let us know and we will be happy to welcome you back.

A one-stop holiday destination for the entire family. Clean rooms with good amenities. Great restaurant serving international cuisine. Lots of things to do for everyone. Snorkeling is great in front of the hotel and all around the island. Golfing in paradise ... who can complain. Tennis, table tennis, walks, or just lazing on the beach both day and night. All stress disappears. Sunsets are great too. Neighboring villages, ie, Tekek and Juara provide wider food and fun options. Kids and mommy happy equals all happy! Can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: Room Numbers 200s closest to restaurants and pool.

Took the two bedroom Berjaya condotel suite and shared with 2 other friends. Room came with sea view balcony, tv, living room, one bathroom and a basic kitchen. Amazing view of the turquoise sea and stars at night.

Berjaya itself is a self contain resort with great private beach, restaurants, bars, golf course and dive centre.

Transport was never an issue for us as the shuttles were pretty regular and there was always enough seats for everyone. You can get a taxi at te transport counter located right outside Berjaya main gate.

Loved it!
