Superb experience
My partner and I had an absolutely perfect stay at Japamala. Words can't describe the quality of the service that the wonderful staff there offers. They made us feel very special without being intrusive at all. We loved our private dinners, enjoyed long days on the beach, walked in the jungle and the villages around the resort. Our room was stylish, large and equipped with anything that one could wish for. Food was delightful and we probably had some of the nicest cocktails ever. We would like to say a big thank you to the wonderful staff at Japamala and look forward to return.

Awesome stay
The service and sea view chalet was perfect. A bit of a climb but worth it for the view. They have a kayak and snorkeling gear that is complimentary on a first come first serve basis. The only thing to complain are the stained towels. But everything else including the food was awesome.

Postcard beauty
Gem finds thrill me. This is one good one. A long drive and speed boat away, the emerald blue greets you with open waves. Japamala's tag line is Rustic-Luxe. And it truly epitomises that. Rustic tree house huts with the smallest beautiful details. A personal jacuzzi and sun deck all make you feel like a Sultan. The heart of the show is the bar and restaurant built out into the sea with cabanas looking out into the azure sea. Cocktails are complimentary from 6-7 pm as the sun departs leaving wisps of orange, amber and pink. Monitor lizards slither away and monkeys watch you from afar in your shower that opens into the forest. You think you're here to watch but you're being watched. By the forest.

Tree top chalet 13 is perfect for an able bodied couple. It had an incredible view and is relatively private but be prepared to walk up a fair amount of stairs. The balcony area over looks the crystal clear waters of tioman. Perfect for an afternoon of lounging around.
