We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights, and was lucky enough to have met the owner, Tony, who was there to welcome us. During the stay, we talked and he explained on the efforts that he made to get this resort to the way he want all these years. I'm going to summarize my trip in point form:... More

Ahhhhh.... Minang Cove, a niche cove neatly carved out by the idyllic blue waves, nestled just where the white clouds tease the mountain tops. How could we resist the charms of our favorite dive spot and children's private playground. Our family have been coming here since its initial setup in the early 90's before and after kids. Over the years... More

You will be disappointed, if you are looking for strong wifi connection(there is no wifi), shops, fine dining options. Be close to nature, this is exactly what this place is meant to be. First, environment is awesome, both for kids and adults. Crystal clear sea welcomes you at jetty. Pretty basic facilities but definitely sufficient for a good stay. We've... More

Just spend 4 days at Minang Cove and we loved it. The rooms are pretty much standard - nice and clean and the mini bar is well supplied. The beaches and surroundings are amazing - the best snorkeling is found right of the private beach and along the jetty. Plus Minang Cove have their very own Padi certified dive Centre... More

Firstly the location is beautiful, Just in front of a beach on a small cliff. The service and friendliness of the staffs are excellent. The stock of the bar needed to be improved. Scotch is unavailable. The only option of whiskey was JD. Food can also be improved. We have also enjoyed the Scuba dive and spa offered by the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Minang Cove Resort. The resort compound, surrounded by mountains, jungle and the sea, was teeming with life. On land, we saw monitor lizards, black squirrels and monkeys. In the sea, we saw beautiful corals, black-tipped sharks, clown fish and parrotfish. It was a tropical paradise. The room was clean and well-appointed. The meals... More

Little did I know that this little resort was tucked away in its own little corner away from the other resorts on the island. So it is pretty much self-contained - to get to any other parts of the island, you'll have to take a speedboat. So it is a very private, secluded resort with a tiny beach (not enough... More
