The Tioman Islands in Malaysia are a blend of beauty, culture and adventure. Tioman is cluster of a few islands spread rather close to each other and hence travelers can explore all the islands while on a boat. There is something about the splendor of this place that attracts people, holds their attention and shoves them to come back here again and again. What made our trip even more wonderful was our stay at the Melina Beach Resort which is situated on a separate island close to the Paya terminal and has a rainforest in its backyard. Melina is utterly beautiful and serene and staying there for a few days would take you afar from the dullness, stress and promptness of your daily life. A private beach, amicable staff, an incredible cook, the unusual environment, a fascinating library and a few cats and a dog roaming about make you fall in love with the whole idea of the setting. Some parts of Tioman offer delicious sea-food and yet people there are very thoughtful about conserving the natural environment and also the animals. The ‘Save The Turtle’ project goes on as a division of many resorts and groups. It’s a beautiful site for snorkeling and scuba diving and offers you a spectacular gaze into the under-water world. I think the visions of colorful schools of fishes, vibrant sea-animals and stunning coral reefs and a spectacle of the marine life made our little getaway to Tioman all the more worth it.
