About Pulau Tiga

Dubbed ‘Survivor Island’ after having been the featured location in the popular Reality TV series, Survivor, Pulau Tiga first gained prominence in the 1980s when a mud volcano eruption caused small chain of islets.

Pulau Tiga, literally means 'three islands' in Malay, is surrounded by the pristine South China Sea. Although Pulau Tiga no longer dabbles in show business, its name is no stranger to travellers from all walks of life who enjoy a weekend getaway in the isolated bliss Pulau Tiga has to offer. Picturesque sceneries of the vast ocean, white sandy beaches to sink your toes in, and a therapeutic soak in the mud pools will be a sure way to ease away tension and churn out a couple of laughs within your party. If you are seeking adventure, you can also opt for a short hike in the jungle, visit the nearby snake island for some wildlife sightings or camp in the wildness!

Accommodation in Pulau Tiga

With two resorts on the island, it’ll be a shame to not spend at least one night in either Pulau Tiga Resort or Borneo Eagle Resort to relish the natural facilities available at your disposal to fulfil a tropical island getaway such as swimming, snorkelling or kayaking. Divers can also fill up their dive logs as Borneo’s underwater treasure troves offers much for the senses among aquatic wildlife.
