Notice for Early Bird Bookings
Tenggol closes her doors from beginning of November till the end of February every year when the monsoon hits the East Coast of Malaysia. As nature intervenes, the reefs and the marine life goes into remission and recovery during these months of tumultuous weather.
Pre-bookings for the season ahead, however, are always made during the monsoon. Diving and snorkeling packages would have been planned and sold in advance; while the resorts' availability in the first three months of the season and especially the Public Holiday weekends would have been 80 percent booked out.
In view of that, we have pre-booked spaces for the entire season from March till October 2017.
Early birds will be entitled to an "Early Bird Price" for any pre-booking made from now till the season reopens. After which, prices will be adjusted upwards accordingly for the coming season till our last trip in October.

Tenggol's Marine Life
Unbeknownst to many, Tenggol is one of the stopover points along the migratory route for Whale sharks! We've had a record-breaking year with at least one sighting per trip in 2016. Be one of the lucky divers next year.
Tenggol's underwater architecture and reefs house an interesting collection of marine animals. Dive sites that are further are a tad more challenging but worth the effort. As all divers know, places with currents bring the most amount of nutrients needed to sustain and grow a wide host of marine life.
Be greeted by a concentration of Jacks, Tunas, Fusiliers, Barracudas, Bumpheads and Eagle Rays. The walls and swim-throughs form a labyrinth with sea anemones and sponges; imagine hide-and-seek with Moray Eels and Turtles as you drift comfortably with the currents.
Where you stay during a diving holiday is also another extremely important factor that enhances the whole experienec. The rustic but modern Tenggol Coral Beach Resort is where we will reside during our stay on the island.
The resort has 25 natural timber chalets segmented into three different room types; Bayview, Beachfront and Beachfront Deluxe. Each type of room is equipped with air-conditioning and comes with an attached bathroom with hot shower.
There is ample space for relaxation and recreation on the beach and in the resort. Food served are buffet-style and strictly halal.
Tenggol's Island Life
Sapphire-blue seas, mesmerizing sunsets, coupled with the warmth of the local staff; the idyllic days where you let your mind wander is here for you to behold. For those who are jaded with the numerous tracer-calls and emails from work, you've got the perfect excuse to not answer them now as there is no WiFi connection on Tenggol Island.
This is the perfect escapade where the only schedule is the schedule dictated by nature and where one retreats into the simplicity of life with modern needs well taken care of.
