So peaceful. Japamala’s beautiful collection of chalets and sarangs – meaning ‘nests’ – strewn through the seafront foliage of Tioman Island, do everything to emphasize the exquisite natural beauty that surrounds you.

Reached only by boat (20 minutes from Tioman airport), its thirteen individual rooms are divided into treetop and seaview chalets, jungle luxe, hillside and seaview sarangs. All are simply and naturally furnished, possessing all the vital modern day amenities, and which are connected by a fun network of canopy walkways adding to this hotel’s intrinsic sense of secluded adventure.

Alongside this choice of elegant, ensconced lodgings, you are also treated to superb service, indulgent spa treatments and delicious Thai, Indo-Chinese and Malay cuisine at Japamala’s two restaurants. You can also expect a strong commitment to nature from the hotel, and know that little environmental damage was incurred in its construction.
