The closest dive site, Pulau Jahat, is only a 10 minute boat ride from the resort. There you can see a dramatic series of underwater pinnacles and coral bommies. Pulau Jahat has everything from giant rocks with swim throughs, hard and soft corals and array of fish – whether it be a small clown fish, or a group of giant bump head parrot fish.
Trek to the Waterfalls & Visit the local fishing village of Kampung Mukut
Take a nice trek to the splendid Asah Waterfalls. A 2 hour walk along the coastline through an idyllic fishing village of Kampung Mukut will let you meet the local villagers where they may just invite you to taste some local fruits or wild honey from the bees. Mukut will give you a look into local life in the Tioman villages. If traditional Malay life is what you are after, Mukut is very much worth a visit.
If you want to do a little fishing yourself just let us know and we will arrange a trip for you.
Some of our guests prefer to stay above water, if that is what suits you best do not fret! If a small snorkel is not your thing, hop into one of our kayaks to explore the magical hidden coves and beaches of the Tioman coastline.
Kids will also love to explore the rocks and rock pools, and observe the crabs and fish. Nets, buckets and spades are available (please bring plastic shoes).
Relax and unwind with Bagus Place’s very own aromatherapy massage. After a long day of being out in the water and trekking through the outdoors many of our guests enjoy having some downtime with our very own masseuse. Book a massage and enjoy the indulgence. Our aromatherapy massages are specially designed to help you relax and be one with the environment through traditional therapeutic rubs and oils.
Another Day In Paradise
Nature-walk, birding, wildlife spotting
Bagus Place is proud of Tioman Island’s nature and wildlife. Guests are able to see a variety of rainforest wildlife within the resort vicinity such as birds, monkeys, squirrels, bats and sea-eagles. You can even view the beautiful corals, a variety of coral fishes and some resident turtles while snorkelling at our jetty. Strolling along the jetty boardwalk allows you to spot marine wildlife such as baby sharks, turtles, blue-spotted sting-ray, and colourful coral fishes like parrot fish, batfish, clown fish and many others. Known for our appreciation of the natural environment and its wildlife, Bagus Place will provide you with Tioman’s finest. But don’t worry– our wildlife will not follow you to your chalets!
Jungle Trekking & Rock Climbing
Trek to the Saddle Point of the Dragon Horns
This is a 3 hours jungle trek to the middle point of the Dragon Horns peak. An interesting route (could be challenging for some) where you’ll pass several huge boulders, rest at cave-like rocks, encounter some endemic species found only in Tioman. Along the way you’ll enjoy some jungle stories from your local guide, and after some steep climb, the next minute you know you are sitting on top of the world witnessing the breath-taking view of the coastline of South Tioman.
Rock-climbing to the Dragon Horns
If you are looking for something adventurous, rock climbing is a fantastic option. Every rock climbers’ delight awaits you at the Southern end of Tioman. Home to the Dragons Horns, only a few have managed to scale the two rock slabs erupting from below the tropical rainforest reaching for the sky. At a height of 695m it is a true challenge and has been compared to the mountain climbing at Half Dome & Yosemite National Park. Guided by very experienced local climber, Pak Tam, he has led many international expeditions up the Dragon Horns. We advise you to bring your rock climbing gear in anticipation of this trip as rock climbing gear is not provided by the resort. Please email us for more information.
We offer a full day and half day snorkelling trips to Coral Island and Ringgis Island.
Go on a snorkelling trip to see more of the marine park areas, with a stopover at a secluded white fine sandy beach for a picnic.
