Japamalaya Resort in Malaysia’s Tioman Island is a wonderful paradise island getaway set in a picturesque cove enveloped by lush jungle greenery. The vibe here is very intimate yet friendly so it is ideal for honeymooners and romantic getaways. There are 13 luxurious villas that overlook the glistening waters and the tropics. Guests wake up to lovely sounds of chirping birds, refreshing breeze, and complimentary buffet breakfast. Two restaurants specializing in Italian and Asian fare will surely delight the palates. Refreshing cocktails and fruit shakes may be ordered from either restaurants or while lounging by the poolside or the beach. For relaxation and rejuvenation, enjoy holistic treatments and massages at the spa. There are 2 pools including a stunning swimming pool has overwater pool cabanas replete with waterfalls and the shoreline is of course a haven for beach lovers.

WorldTop7 Facts
  • The only boutique resort on Tioman Island, Malaysia; set in a picturesque cove amidst 11 acres of lush rainforest

    Japamala is accessible only by boat

    Offers 13 plush wooden villa accommodations that have astonishing views of the waters

    Room Tip – treetop villas are best for views but not child friendly; Seaview Sarang has a courtyard Jacuzzi, private sundeck and waterfall dipping pool

    Get up early if you want to be able to grab one of the 3 overwater cabanas; bamboo mats can also be used if cabanas are occupied

    There’s just one kayak so wake up early if you want to be the first to use it; snorkeling gear may be used for free

    There are 2 restaurants - one by the jungle and one above the water; there is no room service but the mini bar is stocked with wine and snacks

    Best time to visit:during Mar-Oct dry season; be sure to bring insect repellant

    Be prepared to be blissfully isolated - other than what's on offer at the resort, there's not a lot nearby

    Fantastically relaxing - only 40 minutes from Singapore but feels a world away

    Beautiful private beach with great off-shore snorkelling
