“Rare find of a well maintained small resort in Tioman”
Reviewed 15 March 2017

Having been to Tioman for many years, am pleasantly surprised to find a property that is well maintained, toilets that do not have fungus and broken tiles. Swiss Cottage was one of the recommended accommodation during my recent Eco Diver training with Reef Check. Am happy to find that this property has water re-filling option so we do not have to keep purchasing plastic water bottles. The simple breakfast was healthy and prompt so we are able to get to our morning classes in time. I stayed in the terrace fan rooms. Was worried that mosquitoes will be a problem but had no such problem. I guess the mosquito repellent worked. The garden is well maintained and beach is clean.

This was my second time at the Swiss Cottage. We stayed for two days in the sea view chalet during CNY and enjoyed our time there tremendously. The room was fantastic, the staff were so so hospitable, the brekki was very tasty; the Swiss Cottage is just perfect all together. Thank you so much and hopefully we can return very soon.

We were a family of 3 living in Singapore and Decided to have a Christmas holiday in Tioman island. Even it was considered monsoon season it was just as sunny and beautiful just rained at night but the daytime was perfect. We just walk in to swiss cottage with no booking and was greeted with smile by Hafiq the person in charged. He showed us the Rooms that was available and we checkin to the Terrace Ac room.The terrace was amazing ,beds was clean and comfortable and it also comes with breakfast every morning. We did some snorkeling in front of the beach and it was amazing and Hafiq also taught us how to use the paddle boards ( he was a good teacher with a lot of patience :) ).Overall it was an amazing experience staying in swiss cottage time just fly so fast with great hospitality. We will definitely come back to swiss cottage again in near future. And thank you very much to Hafiq for everything.we wish you all the best in the future :)

Stayed December 2016, travelled with family

Dear John H,

Thank you very much for writing this review. It just made our day!
Great that you took the chance to come and visit us during monsoon.The weather can be rainy and grey on some days yet on others it feels as if you have paradise all to yourselves. I am glad you got to experience the latter.
Pleased that you enjoyed Hafiq’s company. His great teaching skills come from his background in outdoor education but more importantly, he is simply good natured and enjoys sharing and helping people wherever he can.
We look forward to welcome you again to more happy days in Tioman.

Kind Greetings,
Swiss Cottage Team

The place is just off the beach, with only a dive school (TDC, where we did the open water course) in between. Being almost on one end of Tekek, the place is also quiet (but then, Tekek isn't really noisy).
We stayed in a non-AC room and it was pretty good. Clean sheets and bathroom, and a handy broom to wipe away the sand you will drag in with you. Hot water in the shower for those who want it.
Basic breakfast included in the rent. Free drinking water (which is bizarrely unusual in most of the country), as well as tea/coffee at the reception lounge. There are also tons of books if you feel like reading but didn't carry your own.
Everyone behind the counter is friendly and helpful, though the counter itself officially closes in the evening (6 pm or 8 pm, don't remember).
All in all, well recommended if you are on Tekek and don't mind spending a bit.

We went back, this time to a beach hut room with ac and it was just as lovely as we remembered from last time! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, some even remembered us from last year. The breakfast was very tasty, and I really love the Roti Cani, the beach front huts were really nice, with the hammock for you to just relax and read in the warmth listening to the sea. We went out on a snorkelling trip with Wasabi (local guide and fount of knowledge about the sea) and our friend who was staying there as well, it was fantastic, we saw lots of fish, sharks and a turtle which made our day! We also went on the island trek with the guide Pat Lan, he is so knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna and really good fun, he has proper eagle eyes, and can spot things in the jungle we would never have seen without him.
All in all, a wonderful holiday again, thank you to everyone at Swiss Cottage for making us feel so at home, it was so relaxing being back at your beautiful place, we hope to be back again in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: love the beach front huts
