Hibernate in Style
Nestled amidst 11 acres of unspoiled wilderness along the secluded southern shores of Tioman Island, set sail to the east coast of Malaysia where you will find a slice of paradise at Japamala Resort.
Rejuvenate amidst its 15 chalets, sarangs and beachside villas, each designed to mirror the qualities of the idyllic island. To ensure that the inherent beauty of the destination was treated with utmost respect, each retreat was constructed around the natural landscape with an abundance of natural materials from sustainable sources.
Great care has been taken to minimise any environmental impact, and no rocks were moved and no trees were cut down during the ten-year construction of Japamala Resort. This essence of borrowing from nature inspired the 'rustic-luxe' design, which now runs through all our properties.
Simple elegance balances comfort and convenience in all rooms, which are air-conditioned, equipped with complimentary WiFi access, cable Television, well-stocked mini bars, and Espresso machines.
All foreign passport holders are subjected to a mandatory Tourism Tax of RM 10.00 per room per night. This amount will be collected upon checkout by the hotel, on behalf of the Federal Government. Malaysian Nationals and Permanent Residents are exempted from this tax.
We are pleased to share that the resort will be embarking on an upgrading program. To ensure that the natural ambiance is not affected and to keep disturbances to a minimum, all works, which are mainly woodworks, are done by hand and only hand tools are used. Our aim is to enhance the overall comfort and experience of Japamala Resort.
Works will be carried out in controlled timings daily, and as a result, some rooms may experience some noise disruptions between 10am and 5pm. Please be assured that concerted considerations will be made to ensure guest comfort and convenience throughout.
We thank you for your kind understanding and we aim to continue to deliver the unique Samadhi experience to you.
Please be informed that the East Coast Rainy Season in Malaysia is between November 2018 and February 2019, when frequent rains are punctuated by intermittent sunshine. Due to choppy sea conditions, Japamala Resort's boat service will not be available during this period, but the Public Ferry will still be available.
Please be advised that if any stays during the Malaysian monsoon season are cancelled or unused due to the disruption of the ferry schedule or other transport services, no refunds will be made for the booking of rooms.
Kindly note that Japamala Resort does not allow infants, young children and children below the age of 16 years old. Japamala was designed and built to cater for couples and as such, some of the design features may prove to be a safety hazard for young guests.
