Search and book hotels on Tioman

Hotels on Tiomane are represented by a fairly large number of budget options. There are also several expensive and comfortable hotels. But, in general, prices are considered very low compared to the rest of Malaysia. Although, it is worth warning that behind this imaginary cheapness lies a very low quality of hotels and low service. For all its ultra-low prices, the quality of accommodation on Tioman will also be very low. For $ 20, you should not count on a room with air conditioning and hot water. A more or less decent room with air conditioning when searching on the spot will cost from $ 30.

You can find and book a hotel on Tioman through the search form. The search is carried out in the popular search engine in Southeast Asia Agoda.com, Russian language and Russian language support are present. Also, many hotel options are provided by one of the world's most popular search and booking engines booking.com:

Внимание! Системы Booking.com, Agoda, AirBnB, Trivago и другие иностранные сайты показали себя как крайне ненадежные партнеры и полностью закрыли возможность бронирования отелей и жилья на территории РФ, в том числе и с финансовыми потерями для граждан России. Если вам нужно забронировать размещение без последствий, советуем пользоваться российскими системами поиска и бронирования жилья и отелей, и избегать использование Booking.com, Agoda и др.

Легенда / показать ⏷

The largest part of the hotels and infrastructure is located on the west coast of the island and in its northern part. The most developed and popular villages are Tetek, Salang and Air Batang.

Most budget accommodation options can be found in villages on the west coast of the island: Salang, Air Batang and Tetek. Here you can always find a bed in a hostel from 20 ringgit, a hotel room from 20 dollars, a bungalow on the beach. Almost all hotels are in close proximity to the beaches.

As for budget accommodation (from 10 to 30 dollars), there is no special need to book a hotel or guesthouse in advance and you can always find free rooms on the spot. If you are not too picky about the quality of accommodation, and for you the most important thing would be where to spend the night, feel free to go to the island and find a place to stay at any time of the year. If you want to stay in one of the most popular and expensive hotels on the island (from 30 to 100 dollars), it is recommended to book in advance, preferably even a few months in advance.

One thing to keep in mind: during the rainy season, roughly from November to February, many hotels and hostels close. And you have nothing much to do there at this time. Also keep in mind that during the high season (summer) there is an influx of local holidaymakers on the entrance days, and it will not always be possible to find free places in hotels (not easy, but not impossible). Therefore, if you arrive on the island on a weekend, it is better to book a hotel in advance.

In the search for hotels from Agoda offered on our website only a small number of the most popular hotels in Tioman are presented, some of which are available for booking no earlier than six months in advance. When booking a hotel in advance, there is another advantage: on request, the hotel will be able to arrange a transfer from the airport or provide all the necessary information on how to get to them (bus schedules on the mainland, ferries, etc.).

And now you can read brief descriptions of the villages and beaches of Tioman to decide on the choice of places for the hotel:

Tioman beaches and villages

  • Tetek Village

    The most civilized and with the most developed infrastructure village on the island. There is an airport, a marina, most shops, including Dutch-free, an ATM, a hospital, a police station. The most popular hotel on the island of Berjaya is located here. The beach and the sea are excellent, there is an opportunity for snorkeling. Tekek, along with Salang, is one of the most popular places on the island, but at a price more expensive than Salang. Tetek village on the map.

  • Salang Village

    Salang village is arguably the island's most popular destination. There are a large number of economical options for accommodation (but do not count on luxury apartments). A good beach and excellent opportunities for snorkeling. Salang village on the map.

    Near Salang is very popular with divers Monkey Bay.

  • The Village Of Genting

    Another popular place on the island. If you want at least some movement and fun, then you are here. Jenting is considered the center of entertainment on the island, although these activities are a little more fun than a nap in kindergarten. Tioman is such a quiet island. Most of the hotels available for booking in advance via the hotel search form above are located here. Jenting village on the map.

  • Juara Village

    This village is on the east side of the island and can only be reached on foot through the jungle or by Jeep. This route, by the way, is one of the most popular tracking routes. The beach here is famous for its pristine beauty and is popular with tourists who are ready to experience the inconvenience of living and the difficulties of delivery here. This is a great place for privacy away from civilization. Even at the height of the season, there is almost no one here. Juara village on the map.

    In the village there is a nursery of sea turtles, created to preserve their endangered population. If you love animals, you can even stop overnight at the kennel and volunteer to help with the turtle work, but you will have to pay for an overnight stay. There are also three rivers in Juar, and along the path you can reach the waterfalls located in the jungle.

  • Air Batang Village

    Air Batang village is often called ABC. This village has one of the most popular beaches of the island, but without much opportunities for snorkeling and diving. There are several hoteliers here, but the infrastructure, by and large, is abandoned and everything is in a neglected state. Air Batang village on map

  • Melina Beach

    The long three-kilometer Melina beach stretches between the village of Jenting and Paya Beach. Here is the hotel Melina Beach Resort, which positions itself as a hotel for lovers of ecotourism. The hotel is quite new (it has been operating since 1999), and here you can really watch the wildlife right from the bungalows of the hotel, and on the cleanest beach you can almost do snorkeling. The hotel is isolated and remote from the infrastructure, but everything you need for a quiet secluded holiday is presented in the hotel. Forum review about Melina beach and hotel.
