The small, well planned, exceptionally well maintained resort, with attention to detail is perfect for families, as well as couples looking for a quiet relaxing break.As soon as you arrive at Minang Cove the staff are on hand to greet you personally and welcome you to the resort. Nicholas and his staff are a true team of professionals: warm, friendly... More

We had a great time there at the minang cove, a really quiet and pleasant hotel on tioman. We liked the fact that it was not a tourist factory, only a few people are able to stay in the bungalows because it's fairly small. The hotel is in a beautiful spot where you can bathe or hike. The staff is... More

We had five days at Minang Cove Resort and did not want to leave! It is an amazing, clean and safe place! Our children loved it and could run around all the time. The staff is very friendly and serves absolutely delicious food. A highlight is the five o'clock tea time. Every day they serve something else like cake, muffins... More

A natural Resort, warm and friendly staff; super food, no wifi (helps you relax and truly getaway) with fantastic diving opportunities. Whilst diving, we saw turtles, sharks and pufferfish; it was completely a awesome experience.

The trip to Minang Cove resort takes only 10 minutes on a speedboat from where the ferry drops you off at the jetty. We were greeted by Nicholas who welcomed us and gave us a brief overview of the hotel and island. The island of Tioman seems to still be a hidden gem with very few tourists and secluded villas....

We have been staying in Minang Cove Resort for six nights during March 2015 and our experience is unconditionally positive. The location is just wonderful, surrounded by tropical forest and includes a beautiful house-reef for snorchelling. The staff including the Manager Nicholas and diving instructor Stormy was extremely nice and helpful. Several snorchelling trips with the speedboat owned by the... More

This resort is located in the south of Tioman Island, about 10 minutes speedboat ride from Genting. To get there, you'll have to take the ferry from Mersing, which leaves about 3 times a day (mostly in the morning). The ferry trip takes 2-3 hours, depending on the weather condition, and delays up to 30 minutes are normal. The hotel... More

The Good : friendly staffs, quiet, lots of fish and corals on the resort water. The Not So Good: a bit expensive, not many resort activities, expensive charges for boat transfers, breakfast....

Traveled with my sister and brother-in-law to stay and go scuba diving for 12 days after attending a wedding. This location (Tioman Island) can be a challenge to get to from mainland Malaysia (there's a ferry in Mersing and flights from Kuala Lumpur) but were able to hire a private driver in Johor Bahru for a round trip drive which...

We are a family of 4 (2 boys 10 and 8 year-old). We were looking for a quiet place away from the Singapore crowds...This resort did not disappoint us. The staff is very friendly and make you feel like you are part of their family. The boys had a great time playing on the cute little beach and snorkeling right... More
