After two nights, there is an early morning start for your land and boat transfer to chic Japamala Resort on the exotic Tioman Island, for seven nights in a Treetop Chalet including daily breakfast. Tioman Island was used, as the setting for the famous scene ‘Bali Hai’ in the classic movie ‘South Pacific’; the island is still beautifully unspoilt, with pristine white palm fringed beaches lapped by the turquoise waters of the South China Sea.
The secluded Treetop Chalet’s are perched above the lush jungle canopy, fall asleep in the evening to the sound of the rainforest, with birds and insects playing a nocturnal chorus, accompanied by the gentle rustling of leaves.
In an open sided pavilion, between swimming pool and the beach is the Tamarind restaurant, where you will experience authentic Vietnamese and Thai cuisine. Breakfast is served here, with a selection of delicious healthy fruit juices. For classic Italian cuisine or a nice juicy steak, head down to the end of the Jetty to Mandi-Mandi Restaurant, they also do a mean freshly shaken cocktail. For spectacular sunsets, take your drink down to the cushioned lounges down on the beach.

Kuala Lumpur is becoming the leading shopping capital of Asia, with major designer boutiques, modern shopping malls along with the chaotic street markets of China Town. Dinner sitting at one of the outdoor eateries in China Town is an experience not to be missed, with the background of waiters shouting orders, huge serving platters of delicious Malay curries and Satay Sticks with jugs of delicious local beers being delivered to waiting diners.
Dining at the Villa Samadhi is a relaxed approach, sitting by the edge of the ‘Lagoon’ at Mandi-Mandi for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
