Stay from 16 - 19 September 2022 during the Malaysia Day public holiday. Originally I booked Standard Chalet room package inclusive of meals and snorkeling trip for 2 persons but being upgraded to Standard Family Chalet upon checked in for free. Thanks for that. The room is spacious and complete with basic amenities such as aircon, fan, water heater, hair dryer and TV. However, there is no channel available on the TV. Wi-Fi is slow / weak. Menu offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner is limited and their staffs take time to refill it. They should be alert with the number of guests for the day so that they can prepare enough foods. Need to inform / remind the staffs several times to refill the food. Really enjoy the snorkeling trip and having so much. It's worth for the price. They bring to several snorkeling points and lastly relax at the beach before going back. They should add some entertainment / activities during the night at the beach to attract more tourist as there is nothing much to do at night. There is TV in the room but no channel, the Wi-Fi is slow..so what else to do? …
Would like to thank the friendly and most accomodating staff at Barat Tioman Beach Hotel for their great service & hospitability. beautiful peaceful beachfront bay. Accesible to snorkelling sites with a some distance , but worth it. Transport service fabulous. Easy communication. Enjoyed the snorkelling trips organised by the resort.
Amazing seafront villa view and clean room. The foods menu is limited. Mee goreng mamak is superb delicious though. The Barat staff is helpful. The Barat can improve on the wifi connection that will be great.
Pros: Plenty of food, comfortable room, efficient services, clear information, functional AC, and clean water Cons: Poor internet connection, lack of online communication for travel arrangements, average food taste, and old bicycles available for rental service Overall: It is a recommended hotel to stay in for a relaxing experience.
We went to the barat at the end of June 2022.All the staff are very friendly and polite including the abang who driving us to the hotel. The room is so unexpected because it's very big just like cave. The main point is they provide KTV in the room (only for specific room that no other rooms beside). Apart of playing sports, we can sing together at night. Last but not least, we've enjoy the sky that's full of stars and meteor at Barat Beach.The only part to be improve is the menu and dishes that provide by the hotel, honestly need to review and improve. The only thing to regret was we missed the opportunity to see the baby turtle hatched and let go into the sea. Overall we had a pleasant trip at The Barat. Plan to join your PADI AOW next time. :)
Hotel room cleanliness is acceptable and environment is OK, but the food is terrible. The services of staff is good. To recommend for low peak season to stay due to the capacity of hotel is unable to support for many visitor.
A good hotel with pleasant environment and unique design. What’s Great? 1. Sea view rooms are great 2. Fast check in 3. Friendly front office staff 4. Accessible to many food outlets 5. Provide sea activities like kayaking, snorkelling, etc. 6. Friendly people around the surrounding 7. A long stretch of beach 8. Hiking to a nearby waterfall 9. Beautiful sunrise 10. Ride arrangements (at cost) to/fro Tekek 11. A restaurant by the resort 12. Amazing Hilux ride from Tekek to Juara What Needs Improvements? 1. Quite often power cut 2. Quite pricy for the room size with simple interior and without some basic amenities (e.g. tooth brush) 3. Room make up is only on request 4. No telephone in the room hence you need to go to front office each time you need something
We arrived at Tekek jetty and the driver was there ready to fetch us and approximately took about 30mins to reach the resort. The room setting with one toilet, and one bathroom and it is quite convenient if staying with more than 2pax. During our stay, the area of the resort was stink and we discovered it was due to the dustbin located at the center of the resort. The management shall look into it by relocating or to clean up the bin frequently as to provide fresh air. There are also many mosquitoes at the area so remember to bring mosquitoes repellent. The first night of stay, we encountered the power trip at least twice. Believe the power capacity of the resort is insufficient to support during the peak season. The room facilities such as air-cond, toilet bowl tank, and etc shall do periodic maintenance as we encounter issue on it. As for the food, it was served with buffet style and consider not bad. However, we were having the holiday during the peak period and it was crowded with a lot of tourist and causing the dining area overcrowded, and not enough of food to serve. We have told the staff and they required time to prepare for the additional portion. The management shall staggered the dining timing for the guest so that we do not have to que for so long and waiting for the food to be served. The seaside activities such as jet ski, banana boat, parachute and etc doesn't provide in this resort. Only kayak, beach volleyball, beach soccer. We went for snorkeling and spent about half a day for it. Overall for snorkeling was a great experience.…
Not enough food provided during the stay. The room I booked and topped up (around RM200+) for part seaview (deluxe room) but got only part pool view. And I have been told most of the deluxe room is pool view, only 2 rooms are with a little seaview which is first come first served. I was wondering my room is similar to standard room (which stated in the information side with pool view), however the staff told me that standard room is far and without pool view, there are garden/hill view. It is a huge misleading information on website and to agent. The staff who served me is not friendly. I do not enjoy the stay, it does not worth for the money I paid.
Overall place still maintain well after last visit in end Oct 2020. Food still good and staff still helpful and friendly. Snorkeling trip was awesome and the staff very supportive and helpful. No regrets coming back 2nd time. We all have an awesome time and fun 👏👏👍
