It was the school holiday and the room which we wanted was full. So we ended up booking the Deluxe Chalet (which was a very good deal) through pulaupulau.my that includes ferry transfers, full board meal (breakfast,lunch & dinner) & snorkeling package. The Deluxe Chalet fits for 4 people as the chalet has 2 rooms,1 bathroom and 1 outdoor shower/bathroom in the master bedroom and it comes with the ocean view. You will need to climb a ladder to get up to the 2nd bedroom (architect purposes) so not advisable for old folks and disable. The only furniture that was broken is the cupboard door and apart from that, everything looks great. The exterior looks good and the management upkeep's the place properly.
Food on the buffet spread was not bad. It has limited choice but enough to get you around. The a la carte and the grill menu however, can offer you more. Apart from eating inside the resort, there are a few cheap & good restaurants around the area. Not far, just 3 minute walking distances. As Tioman Island is a duty free zone, cigarettes, beers & liquors are very very cheap. Watch out for cats too. They have plenty of this furry friends all over the island.
The resort offers a wide variety of activities from volley ball, pool tables, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, diving (they have their own dive centre - Diver's Cove) and jungle trekking. They even have a swimming pool,tv and internet room. Also, don't forget to go to the Spa. It's cozy & quaint and very pleasurable to have a massage on a vacation. Great for families and large groups but not great for backpackers and those who's looking for peace & quiet.
