Where do I even start? Bamboo Hill Chalet is one of the best places to stay in Tioman. Located at the edge of ABC village, it is blessed with the most amazing location with stunning views of the ocean. Now, you do not come to Bamboo Hill to capture the best Instagram photo. If that is your intention, then please stay else where. Bamboo Hill is meant for those that needs an escape from reality and a recharge in life. The rooms are perfect; clean, simple, rustic and inviting. The cherry on top is lovely Sue, the manager. Sue has been nothing but amazing and please have a conversation with her! There’s something about this place that makes you wana stay, forever. I wish I could. I left feeling enlightened. Will be back. Z.

Thank you Zach for summing up what is at the heart of Bamboo Hill. I enjoyed your company and look forward hopefully to another visit and continuing our interesting conversations. Enlightenment is a greatly misunderstood word; it is not the exceptionally rare state most believe it to be. Rather, is the natural state of unbroken peace of mind and unconditional love that is the deepest truth for everyone without exception. The best metaphor is a grey sky with a tiny patch of blue and being ‘enlightened’ is to understand in direct experience that the open, infinite sky is not disturbed by the clouds! Sometimes life brings us to a place so we ‘taste’ peace, like a tiny patch of blue in all the grey of what is apparently real life. 🙏🏻 Sue

Have been back three times. We always enjoy our time at Bamboo Hill Chalets. The rooms are kept very clean. Host Sue is super helpful. The island has had a change of council cleaning contractors - who are doing a far better job. The beaches and public spaces are cleaned daily - a vast improvement.

Stayed here fr a couple of days... Loved the environment, people and how much emphasis is given to conserve nature. Lovely view by the beach. Clean and well maintained rooms. So much of dedication and love for the place and nature... Hats off to Sue and family! Will definitely return to this sanctuary.

After visiting 5 Malaysian islands this summer and staying in 6 different places, this was by far our favourite stay! We had such an incredible stay and felt so welcome and at ease with Sue and Waari. The room was clean and comfortable with beautiful views of the beach and huge doors that opened at the side of the room next the jungle and at the front to the ocean. Everything was wooden and painted pale blue just like a beach chalet should be. Sue was chatty and friendly to us every day and it was interesting hearing about her life. Waari was so relaxed and kind; he helped us carry our luggage to and from the boat and adjust the bike seats. Nothing was ever too much trouble or an inconvenience. This is the perfect place to stay to fit in some jungle walks, dives and snorkels or equally to just do absolutely nothing but lie on the beach all day. Thank you for giving us such a memorable trip. We want to return at the end of October!

My wife, Alison, and I stayed in one of Sue's chalets at the north end of the bay at Kampung Air Batang. Very quiet and peaceful, all you hear is the sea! A snorkelling trip to Coral Island with our guide Jai was a great day out, especially the stopover at Monkey Bay. Bicycles are available for a gentle cycle to Tekek where, if you are so inclined, you can but some duty free beers, wines and spirits! The hammocks on the balcony were a real treat! Great to catch up on those books you've been meaning to read! A very special place and a great holiday! Thank you Sue, Wari, Julie-Anna and Ben!
