Located at the southern end of Tioman Island, Johor, the property offers the ultimate island getaway with a limited collection of beachfront or hilltop private residential villas available with private air transfers from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur that will whisk owners to the resort in under an hour.
“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,” said Andrew Corkery, CEO of Selo. “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 owner’s modern lifestyle choices that matter more than ever to our residents. Samãja Selo is a private lifestyle community curated for like-minded people who share common goals, interests, and experiences in proactively pursuing wellness.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Selo on this very exclusive development and look forward to embarking on this project to develop one of our idle strategic land banks into this valuable gem of a resort, in the midst of this adversity we are now experiencing. We trust this partnership forged with Selo would bring out the best in the property and make it a popular holiday destination of choice in time to come. Impiana will also be sharing our resort management experience, hence this property shall be managed by Impiana Hotels & Resorts Management Sdn Bhd, the hospitality operating arm of the Impiana Group,” according to Impiana’s Executive Chairman, Dato Seri’ Ismail @Farouk Abdullah.

Easily accessible by plane or boat, Tioman Island lures travellers from Singapore, Malaysia and beyond with its tranquil landscape, pristine waters, and tropical climate. Samãja Selo is located at the foot of the Twin Peaks of Gunung Semukut, the island’s most striking landmark, and near Mukut, which is known as the most scenic of Tioman Island’s eight main villages. The region features a kaleidoscope of terrestrial and marine biodiversity that can be viewed from land or in the water, from sea turtles and colourful fish to blacktip reef sharks and manta rays. To prevent overfishing and destruction of the fragile reef, the Malaysian government placed the waters around Tioman in the Mersing Marine Park in 1987.
Samãja Selo Private Residences are available by invitation only from USD $388,000 for Hilltop Lots and Beach Front lots from USD $1,288,000. For more information and to inquire about ownership at Samãja Selo, please visit www.samaja.selo.co.
