Minang Cove Resort
We had our 3D2N stay here. + Pros - good arrangement of birthday celebration and cake from Ana ( resort staff will do their best for event arrangement) - clear water , can see coral and fishes from top - can snorkeling in front of resorts - after dinner fish feeding can see beautiful sharks and fishes - suitable for those who like calm,peaceful and quiet environment - every night have theme dinner, Malay ,Indian,chienese,BBQ ( we are lucky that on our Saturday night stay with theme dinner of BBQ) - beautiful view for sunrise and sunset + Cons - poor internet connection, only available incoming calls ( recommended to have WiFi as some of the business guest might need the connection even on holiday) - there is only allowance of one person for massage at one time, need to booking early. - only one pagoda provides for candle light dinner per night, recommended that resort can provide more tables/ arrangement for candle light dinner. Anyways all the facilities here are good and superb. All staff here are very good and friendly. I like here. Would recommend this resort to my friends. And probably will come back again if have chances.
Thank you very much for being so nice to us. We were not supposed to stay at Minang Cove, but another resort told me that we were overbooked,so I suddenly found out this resort. And as a result it was welcoming happening for us. A shallow private beach is perfect. My 5 years old son and 70 years old mother enjoyed beach snorkeling. I saw a sea turtle when I was swimming and one more from the jetty. I know there’s more beautiful another beaches but all things considered,Minang Cove is very precious. All the staff are very kind and they look working happily.There is one thing that I regret. I forgot to hand them the tip. Next time I will. Thank you,especially Anna and Sazal and a lady at the restaurant. I miss English tea time and fish feeding. Please excuse me for my poor English.
Second time at Minang Cove. Great dive instructor! Very friendly staff. Beautiful resort reef. Pleasant experience.
Beautiful beach, peaceful and private. ”
2nd stay in Minang Cove Resort. Love the peacefulness of the resort as it is private. It is a short swim away to some snorkelling spots, pretty coral reefs in the crystal clear waters. Saw turtle and shark during the first stay. Room is big compare to some other resorts. Staffs are friendly and we do enjoy chatting with them. Will return to Minang Cove again.
Great stay at the resort!”
The balcony view from the room is beautiful And the waters is quite clear too. The room is generally quite clean and pleasant to stay. The staff were helpful too. I like that the location of the resort is secluded but as there is no wifi, perhaps the library can be further cleaned up abit and add some board/ card games to the collection. Overall have enjoyed the stay:)
Love this resort
Extraordinary snorkelling... kind and friendly staff... relaxed ambiance... gorgeous sunsets... comfortable accommodations... varied breakfasts, thoughtful afternoon teas, and delicious dinners... we will be back again for sure!
Beautiful home from home stay”
We are family of 4, children 11 and 7 years and we all had such an amazing time. We arrAnged this with another family who’s children are of similar age. The family rooms were great so relaxing and comfortable. A beautiful little bird would sing at our window ever morning! Then when we opened the curtains we had a beautiful view of the cove. So lucky! The boat trip I highly recommend although during Hari Raya it was difficult to buy lunch at the stop. Our high light was watching the feeding of the fish/sharks after dinner from the pier, it was amazing! All staff were attentive in Particular Anna really made sure we all had an enjoyable stay. Our children said the best holiday ever, result! Thank you Minang for making our precious holiday so memorable.
Idillic place and good food. However you can not make secure credit-card payments so make sure to bring MYR cash. On our early departure Anna made us breakfast to go (included in price), we found out she just put a few pieces of melon for 2 people. The stay cost over 500 Euro so this was really shameful. Just lazy Anna or hotel policy I don't know
Peaceful and professional resort, friendly staff, gorgeous snorkeling & diving”
From the point we arrived at the Minang Cove Resort jetty, to the the point we stepped off, my family and boyfriend felt taken care of. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the resort owner and helpers who took care of our luggage and ushered us into a cool shady spot to brief us on the resort, answer all questions and treat us to a yummy orange/mango cordial. Meals were well planned - breakfast, teatime and dinner were provided and looked forward to. You could also order lunch on-site the day off, if you ended up sticking around for lunch. My family was not certified for diving, but my boyfriend and I were. My family ended up enjoying snorkeling greatly just off the beach of the resort (highlight was seeing HUGE parrot fish in super shallow waters), while my boyfriend and I were treated to a variety of coral landscapes when we went diving. The diving instructors were friendly and shared their underwater photos with us at the end of the trip. Other fun activities were exploring the nearby village (30min hike away), getting a massage, playing board games which we brought, reading books from the resort library, and generally enjoying our simple but comfortable rooms and beds. The resort was very quiet and peaceful throughout our stay - all the guests seemed to have chosen to stay 3+ nights, so eventually we all got to know each other to some extent. The only challenge was perhaps the humidity, but walking out to the jetty to enjoy the ocean breeze helped a ton. All in all, highly recommended resort to visit!
Wonderful hidden spot located away 10mins away from Genting Jetty. Sandwiched between the magnificent looking Dragons Peak and the clear turquoise sea, you get to enjoy the land ,sea and the sky. Good for anyone who's looking to cut off from the world of TVs, phones and Wi-Fi, to be fully immersed in the world of nature. Staffs are friendly but wasn't told upfront about the extra cost of them providing 2 wine glasses for my own wine. But overall, approachable staffs that will try to help you whichever they can.
A little paradise! The staff accompanied me to go for snorkelling each time. I was well taking care of by he staff. The highlight is to feed the wild baby sharks after dinner under the stary sky.This was the second best experience after the chase of the Northern lights. The half board package is worth it. The tranquil location was just I needed for a relaxed holiday. No wifi no TV, just the sea and books. You can walk to the local village and water fall. The resort owner , Tony, had asked his staff, Nora , to accompany me to the local village since I was alone there. I will be back to this resort again in April. This resort is at the Southern part of Tioman island. Far away from Tulai Coral Island, but can get more hotel guests to share the boat to organise the trip. This is the 3rd most expensive resort in Tioman. I had walked to Tunamaya resort, Bagus resort and passerby the Japamalla resort. I had made the right choice to choose to stay at Minang Cove. If you want to have party, this is not your place.
Awesome diving, snorkeling, helpful informative staff”
We are from the USA, this is our first dive/snorkel trip in Asia, so I don't know if this is typical or not. The snorkeling was better than diving at most of the places we have dove around the Americas. We snorkeled at low tide and the schools of fish were all around you, the coral so close you and to make sure you didn't hit it with your arms. Anemones with their families of clown fishes, sea turtles, baby sharks... all right in the cover. We were not planning on diving, but the diving was so beautiful we ended going out almost every day. Stormy the dive master was friendly, informative, relaxing to dive with. We stayed for 6 nights, my husband and I are advanced open water PADI - we did about 7 boat dives. My newbie sister did 2 discovery dives. There is no wifi. They do have digi phone service which is compatible with the USA ATT&T and Verizon phone plans. We took a nice daily morning walk to the neighbor resort to do our wifi "stuff" before breakfast. It was great to NOT have wifi pulling at your relaxation time.
Minang Cove is the perfect location to relax, dive and snorkle. It is Very well located, in a quiet and a very well preserved part of the Island. The Staff is super friendly and the food tastes really good.
Food needs improvements”
The staff are attentive and friendly, satisfy with the service provided. If you have more budget, a deluxe beach front is much nicer than sea view cabin. However, the food needs improvements, both lunch and dinner. I wouldn't pay for lunch at that price if I have other option. Portion for breakfast can be more generous. It would be great if the hotel don't charge for life jacket, it is something essential for someone who are not good at swimming. The snorkeling trip is also rather expensive as compared to other resorts.
Amazing Place, probably the best service you can get in Malaysia”
The resort is beautiful, the reef just off the beach has beautiful fishes, the staff are absolutely amazing and food is great. All you have to pray for when you are there.. is nice weather. I will definitely be back again.
Ideal resort for rest and relax”
We went there just for 2 nights and stayed in deluxe beachfront room which offered very good sea view. Getting to hotel was not as convenient as we initially thought. Ferry tickets from Mersing/Tanjong Gemok to Tioman were almost sold out we had no option but to follow the available ferry timing. Stay in the resort was quite enjoyable although there was no TV and no wifi at the hotel.
Affordable luxury resort”
Very enjoyable stay despite the sea being too rough to snorkel from the resort. The friendly and competent team from the dive school provided some great snorkeling trips, so it wasn't a problem. The staff of the resort did everything they could to make everyone's stay pleasant and memorable. A big effort made around the food too. I can wholeheartedly recommend this resort.
Perfect Place to relax”
J took my older parents from Singapore there and we really enjoyed a 3nights stay there. All you need, staff fantastic and spa treatments wonderful, too! Can absolutely recommend it! Please be aware to pay for the boat shuttle from/to the ferry though
Not best timing when I visited ”
Accomodation itself was not so bad. Staffs were very friendly. What a pity was rough weather condition. Oct(might be till Mar) is not right timing to visit Tioman when monsoon season comes and the passage from Mersing to Tioman will be very rough. I had sea sickness.
