Located a short walk from where the ferry drops you off at Air Batang jetty (there are multiple jetty stops). Staff were friendly and helpful. I was not here as a diver but booked here on the strength of reviews not only from this site. I was not disappointed. My room was very well appointed. It was one of the best rooms I have stayed during my extensive travels around SEA. I could not find fault with anything. All boxes were ticked and I mean all. Someone certainly knows how to fit out a hotel room. Some may whine about no toothbrush & paste but I travel with my own. As far as nearby restaurants/minimarts go it is a real challenge. You just don't know when they're open and when they're closed. Overall, I had a totally comfortable stay.

Dear Steve, Very happy to read that you rate our Tioman Dive Resort as one of the best places you stayed at during your extensive SEA travels! We indeed do our best to pay a lot of attention to detail, keep the rooms modern, well equipped and clean. We purposely don't offer toothbrush/paste in the rooms as usually travelers have their own and we try to protect the environment as good as possible by not introducing more single use plastic waste. As for local restaurants / mini markets, they're indeed open during breakfast/lunch/dinner hours and otherwise mostly closed. It's part of the island vibe ;-) Thanks again for the good review and always safe travels!

Great place to stay for diving in Tioman. Stayed in a triple room which was very comfortable, clean and well maintained and had everything we needed for our weeks trip. Loved the water dispenser taps for re-filling water bottles too - was very useful and a nice sustainable touch. Location was also great, just a short walk from great local restaurants and the jetty. We really enjoyed having drinks on an evening and catching up with fellow divers in the B&J bar too - this was a great hub for the resort. There is a really friendly and family feel throughout B&J and I can’t wait to come back.

Our trip was fantastic. Staff at the resort were great--rooms excellent--well organized--good instructors teaching new divers very well. Boats were great, Divemaster's well versed on reefs. Diving nice--shallowish , but that makes for rustic ,calm easy diving. All in all a experience that will bring me back to this dive resort. Ben and Martin--you have a great place and model that is all about divers, but the non-diver will enjoy the fun that this place gives to all patrons. Jurgens

We got room upgrades and the room were spacious and had everything we needed. It's clean and they provide daily cleaning service to mop and change our towel as we go out for diving. We were very happy with our stay and will come back again.

Highly recommended! Was there last year for the COT cleanup event in Sept. The room was clean and really huge! We booked the triple room. They are more eco-conscious so they provide large refillable glass bottles to refill water. The rooms were very near the dive centre so it was convenient. This was our first time at ABC and the feel was very different from Kg. Paya. Much more laid back and quiet. There were a few food stalls along the street. Staff were friendly so wouldn't mind coming back again!

Dear Sher, Great review as it shows that we try to be as sustainable as possible on an island in Malaysia, while still keeping the standard up to international levels. It's surely different than what you experienced further south on Tioman and we're glad that Air Batang aka ABC hasn't changed much in the past few decades!

Our stay at Tioman Dive Resort was definitely an excellent choice for our diving trip with B&J dive center. We arranged this via email with Martin, who has been helpful assisting us with the arrangement of the dive package, which includes the accommodation as well. We stay at the triple room and the rooms are clean, well maintained and equipped with ac, tv, hot water, soap and even hair dryer. The location is about 5 mins walk from the ABC jetty and close to all dive center, their bar, beach and restaurants. There is no duty free here though but we manage to rent bicycles to go to the next village, about 10 mins away (nearest duty free is about 25 mins) while enjoying the wonderful scenery along the way and passing by the local bats colony of tioman. Ben, P’Gell and team really makes us feel like family and ensure we have a great time during our stay here. We love it so much to the extent that some of us decided to dive lesser and spent more time resting away in the room (their bed is really comfortable) or hanging out at the resort bar at night. Highly recommended whether you are diving trip or just enjoying a simple vacation with friends in tioman.

This is probably one of the best stays you can find in Kampung ABC. Booked a triple room while doing my OWD course and though nothing fancy, here are what I like about my stay: - Clean & neat - Daily housekeeping - No bottled water provided, but the water dispensing machine is available (Good job for being environmentally friendly!) - Friendly and courteous staff - Lots of eateries around

This is the 4th time I've been to B&J Diving Centre in the last many years - and wonderful to get to finally stay at Tioman Dive Centre (It has always been fully booked in the past). Great to have it open after MCO. Great service, incredibly helpful and truly professional 5-star dive centre. Thanks!
