Feedback from an actual Mutiara Tioman guest

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog


If you're looking for a beach chalet to kick back with your loved ones whilst drinking in the sunrise, then look no more. Mutiara Tioman is the place to be. The sunrise here has to be seen to be believed. It is simply breathtaking.

The moment you arrive here, you instantly see why CNN awarded Juara Beach a top 25 place in the World's 100 best beaches list. It's that stunning.

We booked way ahead of our trip and informed the family that runs Mutiara Tioman that we prefer a room close to the beach. Not only did we practically have the beach at our doorstep, but our room was facing the beach too. It doesn't get any better than this.

Sure, the Mutiara Tioman chalets here are quite modest. But they're clean and comfortable. Best of all, everything works. This can't always be said for budget lodgings, as they're frequently run-down. Not Mutiara Tioman. On the contrary, our room offered a water heater, a mini fridge, air-con and even a tv, which we hardly watched.

As I said above, Mutiara Tioman is family-run and it shows; everyone here, including Pakcik Sani, the family patriarch, was attentive to our needs and everyone has heart for their little slice of paradise. We felt very welcome and very pampered. Meals too, are prepared with plenty of verve - and I must say, plenty of skill. So much so, that we ended up having every single one of our meals right at the Mutiara Tioman restaurant.

Now, Mutiara Tioman is not the most accessible of resorts in Tioman. So don't come to Mutiara Tioman if you're into bars, pubs, loud music and happening crowds.

Book your Mutiara Tioman chalet and get a taste of life as a castaway in Tioman Paradise.

However, do come to Mutiara Tioman if you're into low-key locations, blissful tranquillity and a sea village-type mood. For those who appreciate these features, Mutiara Tioman's remoteness works out just right. You'll find Mutiara Tioman an absolute gem.

But there are activities to enjoy too at Mutiara Tioman. The main draws here are scuba-diving, snorkeling and jungle-trekking. There's also a trip from Mutiara Tioman to a turtle sanctuary. We decided to take on all these and I can safely say that all of it was, in a word, awesome.

All in all, Mutiara Tioman has stolen our heart. It's the best of both worlds here: serenity in a far-away Bounty paradise and fun-filled days of excitement scuba diving, snorkeling and discovering Tioman. To paraphrase Arnold: We'll be back :)

Tip: For those interested in scuba diving in a semi-private setting, Mutiara Tioman is ideal, because not only is the Juara dive outfit, the aptly-named Sunrise Dive Centre, within walking distance of Mutiara Tioman, but the scuba groups are kept to a small size here.

Lastly, Mutiara Tioman tends to get booked by company groups, so book early if you're keen to stay here.
