The Legend of Tioman Island
There has been a long-standing legend about the origin of Tioman Island among the locals. It was very far in the past, the Third Princess of the Dragon King crossed the South China Sea for fleeing marriage. Enraptured by the charm of the place, she decided to make it her final resting spot. She then transformed herself into a beautiful island. The twin peaks, Tioman’s famous landmark are said to resemble the ears of the legendary princess. And the clouds around the mountain were formed by her breath.
Juara Rompin Resort is located off the eastern bay of Tioman Island. Currently, Juara Express has boat services that travel directly from Tanjung Gemok Pier to Juara Kampung Pier on the island.
Being one of the natural habitats of dolphins, the eastern bay along the South China Sea has a good reputation for sighting dolphins. Apart from this, due to the good topography and climate, corals and marine fishes are breeding abundantly across the stretch of waters. Hence, this island is also beautifully known as Coral Island.
The blend of Dolphin Bay and Coral Island has blessed the Juara Rompin Resort with breath-taking natural beauty. Juara Rompin Resort, a traditional Malay Kampung Style Resort, is becoming tourists’ favourite diving and snorkelling spot!
