Tioman Gold Coast

Tioman Island, in local parlance also known as Pulau Tioman, is a tropical paradise island off the eastern seaboard of Malaysia. This little jewel isle is part of an official marine park, which means its ample natural beauty is protected by government decree. This, along with Tioman's multitude of other attractions makes it a top destination for nature lovers and beachgoers, both from the immediate region and further afield.

Tioman is renowned for its breathtaking backdrop; its lush rainforests, towering slopes, stunning beaches, lively coral fields, as well as its perennially leisurely pace of life. The island is surrounded by a bright blue sea that's gin-clear pretty much year-round. It's this, as well as the way the waters are the habitat for diverse marine life, that has made Tioman such an ideal destination for snorkeling and diving activities.

Tioman Gold Coast
Inspired by its equally gorgeous namesake in Australia, one of the most environmentally blessed swathes of Tioman is known as Tioman Gold Coast. This renowned stretch of coast, famed the world over for offering several of Tioman's finest accommodations, is situated on the southwest of the island, surrounded by a lush jungle on one side and an infinite sea view on the other side.

If it's serenity you seek, Tioman's remote location provides a peaceful and relaxing environment, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. But if you want to opt for a truly off-grid vacation and only an elusive sun-kissed sanctuary will suffice, then Tioman Gold Coast will oblige.

Exclusive Villas
The upmarket retreats that have made Tioman Gold Coast their base include Japamala, Bagus Place, Minang Cove and Tunamaya. There's also a more recent addition, Samaja Selo, the swanky cluster of private beachfront residences being constructed by this Indonesian project developer. Regardless of which of the lodgings you decide to spend your exotic holiday, staying at Tioman Gold Coast ensures a true castaway paradise experience, though one replete with world-class service, countless facilities and a host of helpful amenities.

In spite of its offshore location, Tioman Island is considered quite accessible. After all, it's reachable by both ferry and plane. That said, keep in mind that making your way to Tioman Gold Coast requires a little more logistical forethought -- frankly, a blessing in disguise, given that it's this that enables our still pristine little slice of paradise to remain as ethereal as it is.

Never a Dull Moment
For those seeking adventure, Tioman Island offers several trekking trails that provide sheer dazzling 360 degree vistas of the island's landscapes and seascapes. Although perhaps not a trek for the faint of heart, one of the most rewarding hikes is to the top of Gunung Kajang, at over 1000m the island's highest peak. Once there, the panoramic views are worthy of not just one but a generous helping of selfies. Meanwhile, other fun activities around Tioman Gold Coast include paddle-boarding, kitesurfing, kayaking and scubadiving.

Nature, Naturally
Tioman as a whole, meanwhile, is also known for its vibrant ecology, above and below the island's waterline. Both its sea and interior harbour a huge variety of species of vertebrates and invertebrates; marine life includes turtles, fish, dolphins, crustaceans and numerous multi-hued coral reefs. Tioman's interior is home to innumerable birds species, as well as ground and tree-dwelling mammals and primates, along with countless insects, arachnids, amphibians and reptiles, big and small.

In addition to its natural allure, Tioman Island also offers visitors a glimpse into the local culture of Malaysia. The island is dotted with a dozen small fishing villages, where visitors are gleefully invited to partake of the local cuisine. Typically, fresh seafood and traditional Malay dishes rank high on the menu of the charming eateries found here and there.

Tioman Island is truly a paradise for nature lovers and sun-worshippers alike, as well as those looking to get away from it all. With its spectacular settings, considerable array of room types and gentle culture, it's a must-visit destination for anyone seeking a holiday experience that will last a lifetime.
