Taking a break from our daily grind is easy with the myriad of beautiful islands in Malaysia. If we can choose one island to visit this weekend, that would be Pulau Tioman (Tioman Island). Situated in Pahang, there's nothing quite like the experience of relaxing by the beach and swim in the stunning azure waters. While there are many beach resorts in Pulau Tioman to choose from, here's one of the few places that stands out from the rest.
Located on the southern shores of Pulau Tioman, you'll find Japamala Resort, a rustic eco-luxe resort surrounded by lush nature and scenic sea view. While the resort is sprawled with 15 chalets, sarangs, and beachside villas (you can make your pick here!), there's one villa that's worth splurging for your next family getaway.
Named after the head of a traditional Malay village, it's none other than the Penghulu House at Japamala Resort. Besides having the jungle as your backyard and being a few steps away from the beach, Penghulu House is a double-storey accommodation with two bedrooms, which makes an ideal place to stay for a group of four people.
Penghulu House is divided into Atas Residence (upper level) and Bawah Residence (lower level). The Atas Residence serves as the main area that comes with one super queen-size bed, an ensuite bathroom and separate living space. Since the room is on a higher level, guests can admire the amazing sea view just right outside their window.
Bawah Residence, on the other hand, has two super single beds complete with access to the private swimming pool - just right outside the door. Once the day mellows, you can relax in the pool while listening to the soundtrack of the lapping waves nearby. The Penghulu House is also equipped with other amenities including a 32-inch flat-screen television, indoor wading pool, double bathroom vanities and more.
