Green oasis by the beach.
Had the pleasure of staying with Swiss cottage, at the terrace deck we have lush green forested view at the back and beach view in front, listening to the waves, local birds and allowing yourself to ease into the state of tranquility. I hadn’t had such peaceful sleep as I did in the 4 nights that I was there. With the amount of trees and plants that are maintained and cared for at Swiss cottage, it made for a shaded cool place where butterflies were fluttering around and some local creatures can be seen strolling by (don’t leave your food out if you plan to keep em)
Breakfast is simple and nice, it’s different each day and I’m still reminiscing the creamy oats.
Thank you Stella and the team of wonderful people that made it such a delightful experience.
And I shall include a photo of the cat conference that we stumbled upon.

The Swiss Cottage hotel in Tioman has a great, relaxed atmosphere. Plus, it has a great location: 10-20mins walk away from the jetty and occupies the last stretch of the beach. Also, if you are interested in diving with the Tioman Dive Centre, this is the place to be!

The beach itself is beautiful, especially when the sun sets. Although clean, the beach is home to many sandflies. And whilst this isn't the hotel's fault, it does make the prospect of going to the beach a little less enticing. Furthermore, as the hotel is located near greenery, that are also a lot of mosquitos around. The hotel does provide mosquito nets in the rooms and an oil to apply to avoid sandflies however the fact remains that these insects are around.

The rooms itself are quite spacious although the bathrooms are small and basic. It must be noted that the rooms are not cleaned daily. That said, the staff were all really friendly and welcoming. The breakfast included is basic. However, the hotel had areas for you to fill up water bottles or get tea and coffee which were greatly appreciated.

The main attraction of this hotel in my view is its connection with the Tioman Dive Centre which is a fantastic dive centre. Although, you can see some decent coral and marine life just by snorkelling off the beach. Hanging out by the beach is also quite popular however seating was limited and sometimes there were no deck chairs or space in the pagoda available.

We stayed here for two nights and we absolutely loved it! We were greeted my warm staff members at the reception, after a brief introduction about the accommodation & things to do here, we were able to check-in. Our chalet was located right on the beach and we had a very clear view of the sea. The room in itself was very comfortable, the bed was big and the sheets were very soft. It had a really nice modern shower facilities and some toiletries. We always worry about not having enough water pressure in the showers but this was not the case - the shower was hot and powerful. We also loved the fact that we had a hammock right on our deck - we felt super relaxed whilst enjoying the sounds of the ocean.
Did you know that they also include breakfast? It always varies so you never know what you gonna get which is a very nice surprise! They do amazing roti canai for breakfast! They also have a few lunch options and delicious shakes! The best part of this accommodation is the house coral reef. We were able to snorkel right off our beach and see wonderful corals and colourful fish. Not to mention the sunset! It’s stunning.
If you get a chance, which I’m sure you will, have a chat with the owners of this place - Alice (mom) and her daughter Stella. They are super nice ladies, will provide you with lots of tips and other useful info!
We can highly recommend this place to everyone! You will not regret it. Cheers!

We stayed at Swiss Cottage for 5 nights during our 3-week-vacation in Malaysia. We stayed in a beachfront hut, the location was beautiful though the sandflies were kind of a bummer but of course that's not the guesthouses fault, they even provided anti sandflies lotion. The AC was very noisy. The matress was not very comfortable, I was under the impression it hasn't been exchanged for quite some time.
There was no room service though the hp states there'd be room service every 3 days. The breakfast was very simple and in times the portions were really small. Like 2 slices of french toast and 2 small pieces of apple.
The water filter is great and helps saving money and cutting down on plastic.
All in all I'd say it's a beautiful place but the price of almost € 50 is very steep.
