Julie and Simon are the super hosts in Juara beach. They are very friendly and hospitable. They also promote good neighbourhood and environmental awareness. Riverview's location is the best. It's very quiet and they have very lovely dog, Georgie, that we enjoyed playing with. We also enjoyed their facilities like canoeing and snorkelling. Riverview is absolutely the best place to...

friendly staff, beautiful calm beach, nice scenery, adequate facilities, relaxing atmosphere by the river. Affordable price too. Had a great time there just trying to unwind from the stress of city life.

Stayed in a beach chalet for a few days and had the best luck to be there when they had a new puppy just arrived. Mornings sitting on the edge of a porch looking out at the beach with a hot cup of tea and a puppy cuddling at your toes were the best. The Juara beach is a lovely...

Hiya Dale, so funny that you are here now while writing this. I guess it goes to show that we feel like home from home and a comfortable place to visit. Have loved meeting your lovely daughter. Hope she enjoys the snorkelling. Julie, Georgie, Jasper and Bertie, oh and Simon too!!!

This place is absolutely amazing. We were looking for an affordable and clean bungalow on a calm beach and had a hard time finding something that fit all the criteria. Eventually we found Riverview and it exceeded our expectations. The location is lovely, right at the end of Juara Beach, where a river flows in the sea. Juara is not...

A good place to come down from stressful work atmosphere. Complex was very tidy and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back to buy the big catamaran for 1RM :D If we come back to Malaysia, we definitely stop over for a longer visit. 3 days is not enough.

Hi Nathalie, It was great having you stay with us. We will swap you the catamaran for veterinary skills. We look forward to seeing you next time, Julie

This was my wife and I second visit to Riverview. We also took some of our friends with us this time and booked the three beach huts directly on the beach with brilliant views of the stunning beach. We stayed here for 7 nights and could have stayed longer. Julie and Simon who we met on our previous visit are...

At Riverview chalets there is no need to lock your door when you go for a swim, a meal or trekking. It's one of the safest holiday resorts on earth. Juara is the only place in Tioman with no police station. There is no need for it. And what a treat to be waken up by the sound of the...

I was part of an international conference, and this preconference tour involving Australia, South Africa, Germany and Canada was incredible. The staff were legendary, the food was delicious, the area was secluded and beautiful. I wish that I could visit all the time, and relax on the gorgeous beachs.

Stunning location, incredibly welcoming and helpful owners and staff and loads of activities to do in the surrounding area. Two easily accessible and beautiful reefs right off the beach. We saw clownfish, stingrays, small blacktip sharks and much more. Very relaxing atmosphere, and very good value for money. The small Paradise restaurant just down the beach has delicious home cooking.

River View is not a resort so do not except splurge rooms and luxury ammenties. What you get is much more. River View offers unspoiled, honest and tranquil escape from the rest of the world. Area of River view is well maintained though rooms are very basic: no AC or hot water. But don't really need those. Or maybe you...
