On Tioman Island’s south, at the foot of the Twin Peaks of Gunung Semukut, sits the newly unveiled Samãja Selo Private Residences. The luxury residential resort marks Selo Group’s highly anticipated entrance into the Malaysian real estate and hospitality market and was conceived by the award-winning and fully integrated development company, in partnership with Impiana Hotels Berhad, one of the leading hospitality companies in Southeast Asia.
The ultimate island getaway, Samãja Selo offers a collection of beachfront or hilltop private residential villas that take in all the island’s pristine and natural surroundings. Tioman Island is, after all, known for its kaleidoscope of terrestrial and marine biodiversity ranging from sea turtles and colourful fish to blacktip reef sharks and manta rays.
Residents also get access to a wide selection of amenities. Lounge by the poolside, rejuvenate at the spa, wellness, and fitness facilities, socialise at the clubhouse or destress at the yoga pavilion. If you’re looking for a quiet place to get some work done, the library and various co-working spaces are available for use.
Samãja Selo also offers a variety of dining experiences which includes alfresco dining at The Ocean Grill and casual lunches at The Beach Club, Pool & Cabana.
“We are thrilled to bring our exceptional style of hospitality to Malaysia, which now ranks among the top five preferred countries for Asian real estate investors,” says CEO of Selo Group, Andrew Corkery. “We have prioritised a luxurious living experience that enhances a true connection to the destination and instils a sense of belonging in a private vacation community; with a focus on the owner’s modern lifestyle choices that matter more than ever to our residents. We are excited that residents will soon have the opportunity to unwind in one of Asia’s most unique beachfront island destinations.”
Samãja Selo Private Residences are available by invitation only from US$388,000 for hilltop lots with beachfront lots from US$1,288,000.
