Guide to Pulau Tioman, Malaysia - Berjaya Tioman Resort
Pulau Tioman is located 32 km off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Pahang (it is, however, geographically closer to Johor). The island has eight main villages, and has grown to become a popular scuba diving spot thanks to the dense coral reefs surrounding it.
Getting to Tioman IslandThere are two ways of getting into the island:
- Berjaya Air from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang/Changi Airport, Singapore
- Ferry from the Mersing Jetty in Johor
Resorts and hotels are scattered around the island so make sure you know where and when to get off (the ferry makes multiple stops once it has reached the island)
Berjaya Tioman Resort, Tioman IslandBerjaya Tioman Resort is the only international-standard resort in Pulau Tioman, and I was fortunate enough to have my stay there for a couple of days in one of its deluxe sea-fronting chalets. Once we have alighted from the ferry, we were directed to a mini shuttle bus which transported us to the resort in no more than 15 minutes.
