Japamala Island Resort is a boutique style resort located on the island of Tioman, between lush rainforest and turquoise blue sea waters. Its luxurious rusticity and its beautiful surroundings give it a true feeling of “return to the wilderness”. Each one of its stilted wooden chalets has its unique layout, some with private pools and sundecks. The resort offers Thai, Indo-Chinese & Malay cuisine and treatments are available at its treetop spa overlooking the sea.
If climbing Mount Kinabalu the second night's accommodation is a shared dorm, so take some ear plugs.
