This cosy 2 bedroom chalet located in a quiet Malay village at the southern tip of Tioman Island boasts great views of the sea and is surrounded by lush greenery and wildlife. Enjoy the tranquil environment and relax , immersing yourself in nature.
Tioman is amazingly beautiful and the chalet is nice, clean and situated right next to the beach. Kg. Mukut is charmingly weird little village, perfect for someone who wants to do some basic hiking and swimming. The shallow water is covered in corals that hurts your feet but there are some sandy patches are in there. The local restaurants are somewhat limited. All in all, it is a good break from the big city but our weekend felt partly ruined by frustration stemming from the astoundingly difficult transport to and from Kg. Mukut. Although this has nothing to do with the chalet, and might be unique to our visit, future visitors should anyways be aware of this potential problem. Transport is often made out to be simple but then it suddenly becomes very difficult in practice. This certainly was the case on our trip to and from Kg. Mukut, and on our day trip to Juara (another village on the island). Although we were lucky in each case, we were also in each case told that the initially simple transport arrangement we made was not going to work out after all (due to weather or darkness), and that we would have to spend the night at some other village on the island. This was very stressful. Information from the web, host, bus driver, ferry operators and locals proved to be unreliable over and over again. Although we are probably at fault for attempting to book the entire trip ourselves (we erroneously thought that booking bus and ferry services couldn't be that hard), we met other tourists with similar issues. I think this could easily be solved if someone (like the host) wrote an up to date guide on how to make proper travel arrangements to Kg. Mukut.
It was great, the Nature over there was awesome
Beautiful place! Bee was very responsive and arranging. I really recommend this place for a 2 day stay in a quiet area. Superb coral barrier just in front of the chalet and walking distance to waterfall. If you want to stay longer and visit the Island you should consider staying elsewhere in the West as prices for the boat taxi are nuts (from this place to the North west it is 250rg per pax and you have no choice). Perfect weekend for me!
Bee Leng and her friends at Kg Mukut are extremely helpful and considerate. They really make extra effort to ensure my trip is an enjoyable one. Kg Mukut is a quiet and simple village which is just nice for city dweller like me. I highly recommend them to those who want to have a get away trip from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Staying in Ong's place in Mukut was fantastic. The place itself has everything you need. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a pristine beach town we can highly recommend it. Mukut has hardly any tourism - apart from the 2 resorts about half an hour out. Whilst food options are indeed limited - you can definitely find them with a bit of effort. Make sure to try the breakfast Prata place! Caretakers Aisha and Ros are very helpful with whatever you might need.
This was an amazing experience! Bee was incredibly helpful as a host, and facilitated the entire process from getting to Tioman and Kg Mukut, to making sure we got back to mainland (after we missed our ferry). The chalet is clean and comfortable, and all necessary accommodations are available. Mukut is also a very charming fishing village, with beautiful natural surroundings and friendly locals. If there is one piece of advice I can give to anyone planning to stay in Mukut, be sure to interact with the locals as much as you can! They are extremely helpful and very nice. Additionally, it can be a little difficult to see which services are available without going and asking one of them (island hopping, sea taxi, motorcycle rides, BBQ, etc). All in all, if anyone is looking for a relaxing retreat from urban city life on a beautiful tropical island, I would highly recommend this place.
