Bersatu Nipah Chalets
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Positives - chalets right on the beach, friendly and welcoming hosts, fantastic snorkelling within walking distance, jungle walks in the other direction, only 10 mins from first ferry stop (see review on Bluewater Ferries)
Negatives - outrageous prices for food and water taxi, pillows like lead mountains.

Unfortunately the prices really leave you with feeling ripped off and there's nothing you can do about it. Hint - take water because its 3MYR a small bottle - 3 x the price on the mainland.

My family of 5 children (3 teenagers & 7-yr old twins spent 4 nights & 5 days(19-23 June 14)in Nipah.
This is my 9th visit to Tioman Island but my first to Bersatu Nipah. Each beach be it in Salang, Tekek or Genting has its own uniqueness but Nipah is the place if you want peace, serenity, time for reflection or just doing nothing.
But we did canoeing, snorkelling and sand castling. My hubby was ecstasic when he caught many fish in the open sea. WE were jubilant to eat the fresh catch in sweet & sour sauce cooked by Amy, the chef at minimal cost. She also acceded to our request for 'cucur ikan bilis' or anchovies fritter for an afternoon tea.
yes, one of my teenager gals hated the place at first but realised it was the best place for her to reflect.
My hubby & I intend to visit this place again. Just the two of us!:))

The only downside is the ferry service back to Mersing. The co needs to revamp their service.

We had done 2 separate day trips to nipah in previous years and always vowed to return and actually stay We should have stayed longer .... It is simple, it is basic , but it is a gorgeous setting that does belong in a Spielberg movie nestled in amongst the palm trees directly under the dragons horns
Take plenty of books, hire kayaks , snorkel.
Amy's cooking is simple but delicious especially the chilli chicken
My only con? No wine :(
We hope to return again for a few nights next time.

If you want to spend a couple days off everything, this is the place. The beach and the sea are beautiful, staff is helpful.

However, beware that if you're traveling during the monsoon season (and you should: perfect weather, lower prices and less tourists), Pulau Tioman and Nipah are really difficult to reach! The hotels hardly answer their e-mails and phones, and our biggest problem is that there is only one ferry/day from Mersing to Tioman. We had planned to spend 3 days at Bersatu Nipah Chalets and had warned them about our arrival time. We arrived at the ferry terminal in Mersing at 2PM (as planned) but they told us that the only ferry of the day had left at 1PM! Of course, this is not directly linked to Bersatu, but I expect from someone owning a resort on Tioman to know the ferry times and to warn their clients about it (especially when we had told them that we would be in Mersing at 2PM, they should have known that we would miss the ferry!). We missed our first night at Bersatu, and when we asked for a refund, they told us to contact agoda.com (which, of course, don't answer our e-mails). Needless to say we won't get our money back...

Pros: Beautiful absolute beach front location adjacent to small forest river with isolated village and unspoilt jungle behind. Friendly laid-back staff. Clean beach with gorgeous sunsets and wildlife (monkeys).
Cons: Pricey (for Malaysia eg RM10 fried rice) food with limited choices, nothing much to see in the water unless you go to the next beach and even then (snorkelling Juara on the other side was amazing). Lots of smoke - sometimes from burning leaves in the evening which may blow into your hut all night (as it did with us) also from staff lighting up ciggies in the restaurant next to you. While we were there they were constructing another hut so lots of hammering and drilling. The other Nipah resort has a more sociable vibe, regular volleyball games run by friendly Abbas but more limited restaurant. Water supply is untreated forest water so may give you some problems if you have mixed drinks. Difficult to book detached room - ten emails and then finally on Agoda.

Room Tip: One detached room and two semi-detached rooms facing beach. Detached room was difficult to book - t...
