Japamala Resorts: Boutique Resort Tioman

Japamala Resort by Samadhi is Tioman Island’s only boutique resort and one of the three Samadhi Retreat properties in Malaysia. This small and exclusive resort of 13 rooms is hidden amidst 11 acres of lush tropical rainforest, where charming Malay, village-styled villas and chalets are positioned in the most breathtaking spots.

From 1 September 2017, all foreign passport holders will be subjected to a mandatory Tourism Tax of RM 10.00 per room per night. This amount will be collected upon checkout by the hotel, on behalf of the Federal Government. Malaysian Nationals and Permanent Residents are exempted from this tax.


Emerging from 11 acres of lush tropical wilderness, Japamala's wooden chalets, hillside sarangs and beachside villas mirror the serenity of their surroundings in their design and décor.

Designed and built around the resort's natural landscape each of the rooms which tourists prefer to call 'Sarangs', or 'Nests' in Malay, are unique in layout. Japamala philosophy of preserving nature in every sense of the word has inspired this very concept of their 'rustic-luxe' design.

Simple elegance balances comfort and convenience, and all of the rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, WiFi access, DVD players, cable Television, mini bars and Espresso machines. Within selected rooms, private plunge pools and wooden sun decks add a touch of indulgence.


During the ten-year process of creating Japamala, they ensured that the plants, animals and land had been disturbed as little as possible. It has always been their goal to build around nature - to respect and preserve the inherent beauty of this destination, and to coexist with all who dwell here. Great care has been taken to minimize any environmental impact. No rocks were moved and no trees were cut down. As a result no two Villas are the same and each is unique - taking on the character of the land upon which it is built. 

The 'rustic yet luxurious' design that runs throughout all our rooms at Japamala, stems from our owners' deep love and respect for mother nature.

The timber, which is the material used most in Japamala, has been salvaged from old 'kampung' (village in Malay) houses throughout the country. The liberal use of bamboo and other natural materials in all our interior and exterior designs are sourced and bought from the Orang Asli, which are the indigenous tribes in Malaysia.

This essence of borrowing from nature and blending it with polished cement and tall glass windows, create the ideal look that is quintessentially 'Japamala'.

All wooden fixtures are handmade by the resort's own craftsmen on the island. The fusion of styles, marrying fabric used in the ornamentation and upholstery of furniture, imparts and air of soft, island-chic living.

Treetop Chalets

Perched high above the luxuriant jungle canopy, these chalets are secluded 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.
