I live in Singapore and I've lost track of the number of times that we've stayed at Tioman Berjaya. In our experience, Tioman Berjaya really is a complete resort, offering everything you expect from a paradise island resort. And more.
For those not sure which hotel to book for the up-coming holidays, let me paint you a picture of Tioman Berjaya's comprehensive hospitality, so you can use this to assist you in narrowing down your quest for the hotel of choice.
Tioman Berjaya, located between beautiful
blue sea and gorgeous green jungle
The service of Tioman Berjaya starts the moment you step off the ferry and onto the Tekek Jetty. Tekek is the Tioman village where Tioman Berjaya is located and as you make your way along the jetty, you'll soon see the recognizable Berjaya shuttle-buggy awaiting its newly-arrived passengers.
There is just one shuttle service in Tekek, so just take your seat and enjoy the views from the vehicle during the 5-minute ride to the Tioman Berjaya reception.
Stunning views from Berjaya chalets
Once you enter the Tioman Berjaya grounds, you'll notice its recurring theme: authentic wooden chalet clusters peppered with coconut trees and surrounded by verdant vegetation on one side and a turquoise sea on the other. Tioman Berjaya's location is a prime beach front spot.
Checking has always been a smooth exercise for us, as reception staff at Tioman Berjaya is always well versed in English. The process usually ends with the staff member showing you a map of the Tioman Berjaya area and instructing you how to get to your chalet. You can opt to ask for a lift in one of the Tioman Berjaya vehicles.
Tioman Berjaya is home away from home
Tioman Berjaya's chalet interiors are tastefully designed and well maintained. In fact, all of Tioman Berjaya's chalets have been upgraded not too long ago and it shows; the room looks fresh and new and the bathroom is very contemporary, complete with rain shower, thick fluffy towels and a range of complimentary toiletries.
Tioman Berjaya's restaurants and buffet spread are great. The ambiance is pleasant and the food on offer, from local to western, is expertly prepared. The service here is above-par and you're never left wanting.

Tioman Berjaya also stands out in activities available. The choice is endless: from kayaking, jungle-trekking, bicycling to swimming in Tioman Berjaya's swimming pools or beach, to snorkeling and scuba-diving
. Drop by Renggis Island if you're a scuba-diver, because it's said to be one of the best coral patch spots in Tioman. If you don't scuba-dive, then have a snorkel there instead. We do both and it is truly breathtaking.
Tioman Berjaya also has a well-equipped gym, and a fun games room for young and old. And the Spa at Tioman Berjaya is nothing short of bliss. Tioman Berjaya even offers a wide spectrum of business-oriented facilities. And let's not forget the 18-hole golf course that we find quite challenging.
Is there anything at all at Tioman Berjaya that doesn't meet up to our expectations? Well, we do find that the holidays we didn't book early enough, we were allocated a chalet that was a little out of the way. This means that, given the sprawling Tioman Berjaya grounds, the walk to reception, beach, swimming pool or restaurant can perhaps be 5-10 minutes, depending on your pace. Not too bad, but perhaps not ideal for everyone.
Tioman Berjaya, whilst not a budget choice, is nevertheless value for money
. A complete and versatile resort, Tioman Berjaya is very comfortable and relaxing, the ideal resort for couples, families with kids and even corporate travelers.
Tip: If you' re not so keen on walking, then book your Tioman Berjaya holiday early. This way, you can request for a room in one of the more conveniently located chalets. Those booking through Agoda can add a separate note about this preferred chalet location. By the way, Agoda also allows you to book without having to pay right away.
