Tioman Island

Tioman is the biggest and most impressive island at the east coast. There is a brisk jungle covers a ridge on the west section of the island, which ends at the idyllic location of a beautiful palm fringed beach.

Tioman offers a wide range of activities for visitors: snorkeling in crystal clear water, discover the beautiful underwater world when you go diving, or just laze on the beach while you work on that tan. Also, there is a jungle on the island that is just begging to be explored. The dense forest is a habitat for many kinds of flora and fauna.

Tioman was discovered as a holiday destination quite some time ago. It was the setting for the supposedly mythical magical island of Bali Hai from the 1958 Hollywood movie 'South Pacific'. In the 70s the Time magazine selected Tioman as one of the world's most beautiful islands.

Tioman is still rated as one of the world's most beautiful islands. It presents itself as a paradise island in the tropics. But sometimes you have to search for this paradise off the beaten track.

The Berjaya Tioman Beach Goft & Spa Resort are the only international standard hotels in Tioman. They are set amidst secluded palm-fringed beaches, crystal clear waters and lush tropical jungle. Sprawled over 200 acres, Berjaya is the only resort on the island with its' own 18-hole golf course.
The Resort consists of 400 luxurious rooms, Suites and Chalets in typical Malay architectural style.
