JapaMala is Tioman island’s only boutique resort and one of the two Relais & Chateaux members in Malaysia. This small and exclusive resort of 13 rooms is hidden amidst 11 acres of lush tropical rainforest where charming Malay village-style villas and chalets are positioned at the most breath-taking spots. Best described as an ‘eco-luxe’ resort, JapaMala transcends the experience of living close to nature by redefining it with a touch of luxury. Designed by natural streams, steep cliffs, towering boulders and where no trees are felled, the entire resort borrows from nature its elements to offer an exceptional sense of paradise, freedom from the real world. Many say JapaMala is not just a place, but a state of mind.

    Perched high above the luxuriant jungle canopy, these chalets are secludd yet situated only a short walk up from the beach. These rooms offer an entirely different resort experience, in fact their very proximity to nature make these chalets so keenly sought after. Here you'll find the noise of the jungle predominates; the soft rustle of windblown leaves; the chirping of crickets and birds; and the foraging of wild creatures at night.

    These Sarangs with plunge pool are split-leveled rooms with an additional TV on the ground level which serves as a family area. Tall glass windows open on to views of the jungle terrain where the Sarang nestles high on the hillside. These 'love nests' also come with private features - a cliff, both indoor and outdoor showers, timber deck and tanning bed. Stunning views of the jungle, divided only by a glass pane in the shower room.

    Our Jungle Sarangs are 'nests' tucked away on the lower terrain of the resort. They're adorned with an open-air bath tub with the rainforest as its backdrop, hidden enough to allow total privacy. A spacious private living area good for dining, sunning or simply relaxing, you will be forgiven for never venturing out of your nest. The Sarang is distinctively designed for the total experience of living comfortably in the jungle without foregoing the finer things in life.

    Perched high on the edge of the Mountain or Cliff or Hill with the turquoise lagoon right below, be mesmerized as you soak in the views of the South China Sea. Each chalet is unique and offers an unobstructed view even from the shower room. A day-bed built on the balcony over the cliff is designed for one to either laze around and day-dream or drift idly by on the ebbing tide and catching the balmy breeze, or simply marvel at the sight and soak up the luxuriant energy.

  • ATAS RESIDENCE (only at the Penghulu House)
    1380.00 MYR

    There is only one such villa of this kind at JapaMala currently. Secluded and romantic, this villa evokes a dreamlike state filled with opulence and adventure - a distinctive ambience that relaxes yet inspires. This 'love nest' rests on a low terrain and is built with an adjoining kichenette, a small dining room and a semi-outdoor lounge with a conjoining dip pool with your own timber sun deck to laze about all day gazing out to sea.

    1130.00 MYR
  • THE PENGHULU'S HOUSE (with two bedrooms)

    Resting on the beach, The Penghulu's House is the resort's only 2-storey-2-bedroom villa. Sitting on low terrain, this modern village-house has the jungle at its doorstep and the seashore, its backyard. While ancient-aged boulders fashion the interior, the rustic-style rooms are furnished with the modern comforts of an urban home. Tall glass windows envelop the villa, nakedly displaying the wonders of nature that surrounds it.
