I always prefer Salang. More laid back and rustic....

This review on Tioman in particular Paya beach resort done by Samkcy79 last year is really good . Has plenty of pictures and details. Check it out.

SAM S REVIEW: Tioman 3D2N Trip @ Paya Beach Spa & Dive Resort 11th-13th April 2007

Enjoy

Hi,

Will be driving and catching the Tioman ferry from Tg Gemok jetty.

Appreciate any advice on:

- location of the parking lots
- is there 1 common lot or multiple lots operated by different operators
- relative safety of the parking lots

Thanks!

Here's an idea how the parking lots looks like at the Tg Gemok jetty. Building at the back is the jetty.

Stayed at 23 & 24. Which is not sea facing. (See map below)


Looked like this from the outside:




Inside:










Its actually quite comfortable. There's even a pair of hotel towels and shampoo + soap for us to use.

The aircon is quite cold, but the room next to ours had a faulty aircon...had to get the frontdesk to send someone to fix it.

TV only had one channel. HBO.


There's a few thing you'll have to be wary of when staying there:

There are monkeys who will ransack the dustbins outside your chalet at night, leaving a mess when you wake up in the morning. There even an incident where a monkey was just standing outside our door until we chased it away.

Not sure about this, but I have seen resort staff entering chalets to switch off the aircon when the guest had gone out. Think its a electricity saving move on their part. There are also times when we return to our resort to find all switches off.



Robin, I hope this helps. Didnt take too much photos of the room i stayed at, but the queen size bed i slept in was very comfortable.

Hey dleodleo, the coach from singapore to mersing will take around 2.5 to 3 hours and the ferry to Tioman from Mersing will take another 1.5 hours.

I'll be going over to Tioman this June and the above is told to me by the agent from Planet Travel.

Don't worry! It'll be definitely suitable for all ages. Although I haven't been to Tioman, I've been to other islands (eg. Rawa) and I've seen ang mo(s) carrying their little ones around.

Of course, it depends on which resort you're staying. Some resorts have their own swimming pools so the kids can keep themselves busy at the pool instead of the sea.
