After 4 years of not coming to Tioman Cabana (or Tioman as a matter of fact), the place has improved a lot. More rooms, a proper place for merchandise selling, a recycling centre showcase/effort and new faces. Of course, Sham (the owner) is still there.

We spent 2 nights (or was it 3) here. We took the room with a/c. The room was eloquently decorated. including with IKEA bedding. There's a water heater - but it's stil basic. Fortunately, dining is near (they have a cafe), the supermarket is near and breakfast is on the house. The best thing about this place is: it's quite, it's you and the beach and the sand, no late night parties. It's serene, quite and calm.

My slight con: The breakfast is fixed (unlike 4 years ago - every day is different breakfast set - loved that) - food at the cafe slightly on the pricey side (but you still can pay by debit or credit)

Nevertheless, those are minor. Open door to the sea is the best gift of all that supersedes everything.

Great getaway. Recommended. Keep up the good work, Abg Sham!

We had an amazing stay at Tioman Cabana for our 4D3N stay to complete our AOW with Fred. Travel is all about the good foods, good people and good vibes! Come to Tioman Cabana to experience these yourself. Words can't describe how best is the place and the crew here. Thank you Apek, Kecik, Nizam, Sham, Fred, William, and New friends we've met at Tioman Cabana for this great experience. Room space is just nice and comfy but there's a little recommendation to add something that can hang our clothes inside the room, or maybe outside the room as our clothes are all wet after our dive. Come to Tioman Cabana for the good vibes. Oh ya, if you're interested in diving, look for #00 Fred lahhh and if you're really into or interested in night dive look for the "BLUE" guy William, the night dive specialist will bring u so much fun in the water at night. Come experience these yourself lahh.

Room tip: Well, ask for the only room with hammock right in front of your room and yes, it's a Seaview hammock!

We did our OWD and AOWD at cabana. Our instructors Emir and Fred were super awesome teachers with good sense of humor and high professionality. The TICA school is very well equipped and we had a great time there. We made trips to the closeby are to super cool dive spots which our captain Haris showed us. We saw lots of different fishes, turtles, sharks and sting rays.

If you want to go to Malaysia you need to come to this place!!
