Hi Evonnepoh, many thanks for your positive review of our place and we're glad you had a good time at Swiss Cottage, even though you switched rooms. Most guests find the sea breeze and fan in the sea view chalets is enough to keep them cool, especially at night. However, if someone is used to sleep in airconditioning then we...

A wonderfully picturesque and chilled place for your holiday. The staff are so friendly and helpful and have some great activities too if you fancy something different! The dive school next door (tioman dive centre) is a great place to learn to dive or do some leisure diving with some great instructors!

Stayed at the sea view bungalow for 3 nights. The room is exactly like the pictures shown in their website and it's good value for money for being right at the beach. You can swim in that same beach or go to any other beaches in the island. We also booked the snorkelling tour through them and it was very...

The resort is small with not too many rooms and is very well located. Right on the beach. The food was good but expensive compared to the many places around it. The staff was hospitable and friendly. Rooms were comfortable but the bathrooms were just too small and primitive. Richard, the Manager there gave us a bit of a surprise...
