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

Some friends of the family brought us here, and we are grateful. A really warm and friendly place to go, kept in a fairly simple and comfortable style. Staff is wonderful and the diving instructor is great. There isn't much you would want to change on this beautiful and cosy place. You might tire of the same routines as the... More

Quiet, secluded resort with excellent service. Beautiful, small private beach with great snorkelling off the jetty. Breakfast and dinner were included, both very delicious with generous portions. Lunch was a la carte and a little expensive. There is a walking path through the jungle to get to Mukut, the local fishing village nearby, and then onto a lovely waterfall. This... More

We were in a group of seven celebrating a birthday. We stayed one great night at Minang Cove and our positive experience was all thanks to Nicholas Lim and his team of staff. They were attentive and friendly, and did everything they could so we enjoyed our stay. The villa we stayed in was what we had expected for the... More

Minang Cove resort is very beautiful and clean and the staff are very attentive. All the recent reviews I have read give a good description of what you can expect in resort and we were perfectly happy, up to the point that we left, (apart from the hard pillows!!) I actually welcomed the total absence of cell phone coverage, internet... More

It is 16 months since we visited this wonderful resort and it retains it's Excellent rating. There are so many places to choose from to go on holiday that we never usually return to the same place.
