Kami is a Canadian yogi recently settled in Singapore. When she’s finished her web work and customer inquiries for Ombak House, she practices Ananda Yoga and studies Reiki. 🙂
Pulau Tioman is a small island located 52km off the south eastern coast of Malaysia. We’re only 2° north of the equator, so temperatures average 30-35°C in the air and from 27-29°C in the surrounding South China Sea.
As a protected nature preserve, the island is filled with dense biodiverse rainforest and surrounded by coral reefs.
Kampong Juara is the only village on the east side of Tioman, and home to only 300 community residents. You can still see traditional Malay life here, as well as heaps of wildlife due to low human population and traffic.
Juara means “champion” in Malay, and the people here embody that with their nightly sports practices in the middle of the village and their legendary restaurants and hospitality. We are blessed to live here, and look forward to showing you our village and life!
