#RomanticHideaway: Japamala Resort, Tioman Island, Malaysia
Only 50 minutes from Singapore (reachable from Kuala Lumpur too) and short speed boat trip and you will be on a paradise where you will have a peaceful surroundings, a great beach and wild monkeys.
On the small island of Tioman, the first exciting thing about this resort that it is only accesible by boat. The hotel picked us up from the airport in their own speedboat, whisked our luggage away and some 20 minutes later you arrive, feeling like a rockstar would to their own island retreat.
Japamala has just 13 rooms, luxurious air-conditioned huts hidden in the jungle, or beach-facing. Our room was as hillside villa, set on several levels with a gorgeous walk-in-shower, huge bed & TV Area.
The room had a huge windows which looked onto the jungle on every side and balcony with the beach view. Very private & quiet.
The setting of Japamala is magical, as you are basically on an island full of jungle surrounded by lovely white beaches.
Staffs are amazing, and its a perfect spot for a relaxing hideaway, and ideal enough for a honeymooners like us.
