Tioman Dive Resort
Tioman Dive Resort is a fantastic option for both Tioman resort hunters and budget traveller hunters.
This is thanks to it having great resort-style rooms as well as budget-friendly dorm rooms. It’s perfect for people looking to dive as there is a dive centre on-site, but it’s also a good spot for non-divers too with plenty of restaurants and shops in the area.
The dive centre is called B & J Dive Centre and is a five-star PADI Diving education centre. There is more about this below.
Located in the middle of ABC, near the jetty, it is easy to get to Tioman Dive Resort. It’s a nice bay with a nice beach and quiet village. You will probably spot monkeys and monitor lizards while you are staying here!
While not connected by road to the rest of the island (like most villages on Tioman), you are able to easily walk or ride into Tekek, the main town on the island, thanks to an over-water walkway. You can spot fish from this walkway and it’s a nice thing to do.
However, you don’t need to leave ABC as there are plenty of eating options right here.
The rooms at Tioman Dive Resort are modern and are available in double/twin, triple and quad configurations. Each of the rooms include air-conditioning, fan, TV, tea and coffee making facilities, hot water and refrigerator. It is a quiet, peaceful location, perfect for relaxing, even if you aren’t interested in the diving courses.
There are only eleven rooms in a double storey building and all rooms have access to a balcony seating area.
In the following video, you can see inside their rooms:
For budget travellers, there are also dorms for up to five people in a room. This makes this resort a very affordable option as well.
There is a beach bar on-site but no restaurant. However, there are several different food options nearby along with shops and other resorts all within easy access.
If you book a package that includes breakfast, this will be provided at a nearby restaurant in a basic buffet style.
Washing machines are available so you can wash your own clothes.
There are water dispensers and reusable bottles available for guests.

They have the best diving equipment available (mainly Scubapro) which is serviced regularly. The Bauer compressors used provide the purest air available. They are the only dive centre in Malaysia that’s Bauer Pure Air Certified.
