The Station Tioman

About Us

Rustic & quaint accommodation for Nature Lovers and remote workers alike

The Station Tioman is located in Tekek Village on Pulau Tioman, Malaysia. We offer quaint and rustic accommodation on and by the beach especially for couples, solo travelers and remote workers.

Our Beach Chalets have a double bed and are perfect for a romantic island getaway for two. These are located on an almost private beach, at the South end of Tekek. We have WIFI in all our rooms for guests who are able to work remotely and want to work, play and live on one of Malaysia’s most beautiful holiday islands.

Our Garden Chalets are stand-alone units that face into our tropical garden. All our Beach and Garden chalets have a desk and chair, which paired with excellent WIFI, makes them ideal for guests who work and travel.

Some of our Partial Seaview Rooms have 2 beds, which is great for two friends traveling together. Although not directly on the beach, these are sea-facing, and just a few steps from the beach. These too have great in-room WIFI.

There are many beautiful islands in Malaysia, however thanks to excellent high-speed internet, in a truly amazing tropical setting with a living reef and vibrant jungle, Tioman is the best island to plan a longer stay with your laptop and enjoy a workcation in Malaysia!

Beachfront casual living - Island time... ☺ Beautiful scenery - just outside your door. Location is optimal. One of the co-hosts - Mark, went over and beyond what is expected. Helped us with luggage to marina, tried arranging for food at night and more. ☹ I was travelling with my son and the room only had 1 bed, but we had expected 2. The room is simple and you have to acknowledge that this is nature style living, by the ocean, with some bugs possible and monkey's are keen to steal your food if you leave anything outside. That can be charming with the right mindset, so bring that!

Good ☺ Jetty walkable, good reef to snorkel (if you are lucky you see sharks). Peaceful, friendly stuff. Cheap and good restaurant. ☹ No mosquito net at the windows (because of cats, monkeys and mosquitos would be nice), so it was quite dark in the room.

Very nice and well-managed cabana-type accommodation ☺ Super friendly staff /excellent communication, location directly at the beach and in walking distance to jetty, good standard equipment-wise (nice soft towels, decent bed, kettle etc) ☹ some non-beachfront rooms facing "inland" are a bit dark and not too nice to sit on the patio. The dive center next door is a bit noisy and smelly (bbqing fish all the time)

☺Alles war perfekt. Hildi und das ganze Team sind wahnsinnig herzlich. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Willkommensgetränk war eine nette Geste. Unterkunft ist direkt am Strand. Schnorcheln direkt vor der Haustüre möglich. Equipment kann in der Unterkunft geliehen werden. Zudem werden sehr gute Schnorcheltouren vermittelt, wo man Babyhaie, Schildkröten und mit viel Glück Delfine sehen konnte. ☹Die Hütten sind nicht ganz dicht. Nicht das Richtige, wenn man ein Problem mit Eidechsen hat.

Wonderful ☺ Pretty well located, 10 minutes walk from Tekek pier with some shops, laundry and restaurants nearby. The beach is basically private with very few other resorts nearby, it is always quiet and you can easily rent snorkels and see lots of fish after just a short swim out. They also organise a great snorkeling day trip around the island which we highly recommend. All of the staff, especially Mark, were really friendly, accommodating and helpful. Thanks to Mark we met many other guests and spent our evenings socialising. ☹ The room wasn't the most comfortable with the mosquito net not fully around the bed when we arrived so we needed to adjust it. There were no insect screens on the windows so we didn't open them. The AC would turn itself off during the day which we forgot to mention but hopefully the staff can take a look at this and fix it. Due to the nature of the cottages bugs do get in so be aware of this.

This was one of the best holiday destinations ever! Accommodation: The ocean view chalet was super cute, cozy and clean with a decent aircon, a mosquito net and a small fridge. Shower had low water pressure but it did not bother us that much. The balcony had a table with two chairs, a sun chair, and a hammock. It was perfect for reading a book, enjoying the beautiful view, or looking at the sunset. Breakfast was in Swiss cottage right next door, there are several options to choose from, we usually had toast and omelet with coffee and juice. Staff were friendly and helpful! If you can, take the ocean view chalet, it will be worth it! Ocean sounds didn’t bother us, frankly it was a lovely sound and we slept well. The beach and the ocean: The white sandy beach in front on The Station is perfect for swimming as there are no rocks and the tide is gentle, no big changes to the accessibility. Water is clear and warm, but naturally any thunder storms or strong winds may affect visibility for a while. For snorkelling head out toward the blue marker and swim parallel to the beach. Don’t swim beoynd the outer markers because that is the boat lane. We saw beautiful colorful fish and many types of colorful coral. Coral bleach is areal problem around the world when sea water temperatures go up, but still there were a lot of living colorful corals to see. You can rent a snorkel and a mask (and fins) from e.g. The Swiss cottage. Restaurants nearby: For breakfast we didn’t try other options. For lunch and dinner we mostly went to Cobana by the beach and the chinese bbq restaurant next to the liquor shop by the road. Food was decent in both, no complains. They are not selling alcoholic beverages but it’s perfectly ok for tem if you bring your own, there is a shop selling beer close to both places. Cobana was “Bali themed” and the chinese bbq was traditional. What to buy: We bought some nice and touristy clothing for ourselves and as souvenirs, and alcohol (beer, rum) was cheap so we made cocktails in our rooms. There is a bigger shop on the other side of the jetty and smaller ones on Station side. Shopping is not a thing in Tekek but you have everything you need available. How to get there: We took a Cataferry from Mersing. Tekek was a third stop. There was roughly 10mim walk to The Station (turn right from the ferry exit and follow the road). This may be the easier route when you first arrive with your luggage/backpacks but after that I strongly advice walking by the beach as it’s shorter and nicer and in the evening you can see all the stars.

Once we landed on Tekek, it was a short 10 minute walk from the jetty before arriving in this secret garden. Was warmly welcomed by Wawa who was so friendly and genuine. Wawa gave us list of recommendations on the Tekek for food etc. She also helped us to book a nature tour to Pak Musa who shared so much about the flora and fauna of Tioman. The room was surprisingly comfortable with ample facilities and great furnishing for the atmosphere. The friendly cats and mischievous monkeys visited us once in awhile. Being in tourism/hospitality line ourselves, Wawa was really highlight of our trip! Great job 👏

Amazing place, we stayed in one of the beach front rooms. Rooms have air con, showers are good, and everything is very clean. The rooms had a balcony with table, chairs and a hammock. Everyone at the station from guests to those who worked there were all really friendly and helpful. Welcome drink was a nice touch. You can get breakfast from the sister site, Swiss Cottage, which share the same site, for 10RN pp, incredible value and was really good. Overall, highly recommend.

Fantastic little place, at the end of Tekek Beach. Very quiet, but with a couple of restaurants and duty free shops within 3 mins walk. There's a little coral reef right in front of the property to practice snorkeling on, and a dive school next door if you fancy scuba. Rooms are quite basic, but they have everything you need; great air con, a good fan, comfy bed, decent pillows / bedding, nice bathroom with electric shower, so even though you don't need the hot water, you have good pressure. Kettle for tea and coffee and furniture on the balcony / decking area outside. Mine also had a fridge and a hairdryer. The whole team who work there are excellent and do everything they can to make your stay perfect. The organised trips were fun, informative, safe and great value for money. Information from the owner was comprehensive, and the on-site team were always contactable if you needed help or advice.

Wonderful Easter Weekend on Tioman We stayed for 4 nights with 3 adults and a child and we had a truly wonderful time. The team and service is amazing and location at Tekek beach is very beautiful. We received a lot of valuable information prior and during our stay via WhatsApp and in person. Rooms are comfortable and very clean, located in a lovely garden. The team can help to arrange different activities (snorkeling, island hopping, jungle tour…) and there is a good scuba dive center just next to The Station (Tioman Reef Divers, we did dives on most days) as well as the amazing „island hopping“ snorkeling tour. There are several options for breakfast, lunch and dinner in walking distance among which we liked Babura very much. Over the Easter weekend The Station offered a wonderful „Easter breakfast special“ every morning which we enjoyed very much! There is a free water dispenser in the garden and the wifi is working surprisingly well.

One of the best beach stays in Malaysia! Just perfect! Just the perfect place to be while in Tioman. They have super exceeded my expectations. Nice kampong feel yet it is equipped with all the much needed basic amenities. They will try their best to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Clean room, a little bit squeaky for the wooden huts which is normal (earplugs provided), beach fronting and comes with their own house reef! Hammocks at the front if one decides to just chill and laze by the beach. Amazing encounters with sea creatures and witnessed my first sea turtle, sting ray, huge puffer fish and numerous clownfish colonies just within The Station's snorkeling perimeters. Location is slightly away from crowd but still is walking distance to shops incase you need to get anything from the supermarket or other eateries. Thank you Hildi and Marcella, the superb hosts warm, welcoming and very helpful. I would want to back :)

Fantastic place to stay and relax We had an amazing time at The Station. Hildi was awesome at helping us arrange the ferry over, (we took the upper deck on the hovercraft which was great as had aircon), as well as booking us onto different trips. We particularly enjoyed the jungle trekking. Hildi's staff were amazing and looked after us very well. The bar offered tasty sandwiches and croissants. Our beachfront cabin was amazing, very cosy but had everything we needed including an en-suite, air con and a fridge. We had a beautiful veranda on the beach with decent table & chairs and a lovely hammock to drink a cold cider and watch the beach. We hired snorkels and enjoyed snorkelling just across from our room.

Bliss on the beach This is truly a get away from it all kind of destination. The chalets are basic but super keen and have air con and hot water bathrooms. We also had a fridge for keeping drinks cool. The beachfront chalets have hammocks on the front decks which are essentially on the beach. You can sit and watch the water and dive boats heading in and out. Snorkelling opportunities are at your door and there are heaps of cafes nearby. Our pick being Salang Seafood for meals and Cabana for coffee. Staff are lovely and Hildi made sure we had all the information needed to explore the local area. It really great.

Zum Entspannen ganz OK! Dieses Hüttchen am Strand besticht durch seine Lage am Meer und den kurzen und zentralen Weg vom Jetty Kekek. Luxus darf man allerdings nicht erwarten, es ist sauber und für ein paar Tage am Strand ganz ok. Gleich nebenan gibt es ein passables Lokal.

Absolutely fantastic location. There may be no better place to watch the sunset. Comfortable, understated accommodation in keeping with the location. Not some huge hotel that looks transplanted from elsewhere; this is a proper island experience with welcoming, knowledgeable staff.

My favourite place during my visit to paradise (= Tioman island) It took me quite some time to get back here, but my visit to paradise - erm "the Station Tioman&cafe" - has left such a lasting impression, that I believe the owners still very much deserve this feedback: Went there with my brother shortly after the opening-up after the pandemic had started and this place of beach on this wonderful island is simply paradise. With the friends we made at the station cafe with its relax-mood drinks, we saw several times a turtle swimming so beautifully out there just a few meters into the water with simple snorkelling. The sunset is unbeatable, but it is a nice - soul dangle (Seele baumeln in German) place throughout the day. And the little huts for staying the night are cozy and very much to my liking. It is a down-to-earth place as I like it - simple, heartfelt, without all the things you actually never need and spend you precious time upon. The owners speak also excellent Swiss-German and have also been very helpful with recommending other activities on the island or nice (and above all "delicious") food options in other places around the island. Never had such a relaxing holiday as this one in 2022...hope to go there again, although it was much easier from Singapore than now back in Europe..

Cottage sulla spiaggia e ottime vibes Cottage a diretto contatto con una bella spiaggia, facilities essenziali ma curato per farti sentire a casa. Una nota particolare la merita la giovane proprietaria che riempie gli ospiti di attenzioni , sempre sollecita, sorridente e efficace. Consiglio questa soluzione a coloro che desiderano stare a contatto con la natura in relativa semplicità, in una atmosfera familiare.

Gemütliches Resort zum Entspannen Ob du einfach Entspannung an einem abgelegenen Insel Paradise, oder auch einfach deinen nächsten ‘work from anywhere’ Ort, suchst, dann bist du bei ‘The Station’ auf Tioman genau richtig! Du wirst von den zwei Gastgeberinnen, Hildi und Marcella warmherzlich begrüßt und während deines Aufenthalts mit allerlei Leckereien aus dem Beach cafe, Ausflugs-Tipps (wie Jungle Trekking oder Island Hopping), und natürlich dem kristallklarem Wasser, bestmöglich versorgt. Die Chalets sind geräumig und verfügen über komfortable Betten, angenehmen Wasserdruck in der Dusche, einer großen Terrasse mit Sitzmöglichkeiten und einer Hängematte. Selbst wenn du die Hitze ab und zu entfliehen möchtest, ist dies auch in den Ventilator -und klimatisierten Zimmern möglich! Stabiles Internet wird natürlich auch angeboten. Ich kann es nur jedem weiterempfehlen!
