Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort Tioman Island is situated in Tioman Island, a secluded island 60km off the Pahang State in Malaysia. Travellers will need to travel by boat to reach the resort from various locations. Going to the resort takes 30 minutes of boat ride from Tekek Airport, but only 15 minutes from Genting Island. This location makes Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort Tioman Island secluded and more exclusive than usual beachfront hotels, and still giving great access to various natural destinations.
One of the closest natural attractions from Tunamaya Resort is Asah Waterfall. Situated in Asah, a semi-abandoned village near Mukut, the waterfall is hidden within a lush rainforest. The stream falls from stair-like rock formations, ending in a clear pool. You can swim in the waterfall and enjoy the refreshing water. The path to Asah Waterfall is easy to travel, and you can ask the resort staff for the fastest route. Since the waterfall is maintained properly, travellers can easily find the signs that lead to the waterfall, even in the middle of a forest.
If you wish to appeal to your environmentalist side, don’t forget to visit a turtle conservation centre. Only a 10-minute drive away from Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort Tioman Island, the Juara Turtle Project is open to travellers, volunteers, and researchers. Try to visit the centre between March and October, as you will be able to witness the egg collection activities by the staff. They will place the eggs in the hatchery, before raising the babies and returning them to the sea. You can also see the daily care of the baby turtles or learn from the staff more about these majestic creatures.
If your curiosity of nature has not been satisfied by that, head on over to the Tioman Marine Park. The park is a short 15-minute drive away from the resort, and it offers various fun activities for all ages. The marine park has artificial reefs and habitats for hosting various tropical fish. Kids and adults can swim, snorkel, and feed the fish with staff supervision. You can also learn about marine life at the information centre, and while it is closed during monsoon season, the marine park will still be open for visitors.
Finally, for the ones where only adventure can properly fill the soul, you can attempt to scale the Dragon Horns: it is the name for the twin peaks of Mount Semukut, a convenient 20-minute drive away from the resort. This mountain is popular among rock climbers, with Mukut Village as the base and start of their ascent. You will find information boards and climber’s post in this village. The climb is quite challenging, and you are expected to bring your own equipment. However, the view from the twin peaks are a sight to behold. Make sure you are well-geared before visiting this mountain.
