Traveled to Tioman from Singapore with my partner. We stayed in the Deluxe beachfront however I think all are great options (all have some view of the sea, but you must also be in some kind of shape, as most are on a slight hill). Comfy bed, AC worked well, plenty of water (can drink from the tap), basic toiletries...

I spent four nights in this resort. Room 2 with partial sea view. Within 1 min you are at the restaurant and private beach. The air conditioning was working. This is for rest and relax people. No Wi-Fi and TV. A book shelf in the restaurant. Not for people with walking problem because you need to climb up the steps...

We were heading off to Tioman from Singapore for an extended week end and were not disappointed. Tony, the owner, and his crew made the 48hours in the resort a memorable stay. The dive center is professional and very well kept, way above what I have seen elsewhere. Important to have trust in the equipment if you rent. We did...

We were looking for a snorkeling holiday, and found Tioman Island and Minang Cove online. We were definitely not disappointed with the choice. The scenery is stunning - the snorkeling was some of the best we've ever found. We were very lucky to get absolutely clear conditions for 5 out of 6 days - with visibility up to 60 feet...

Memorable short holiday stay for 3 days and the small secluded dated resort was perfect for a small family like us. The staff was great generally and a well managed property. The highlight of the dinner was beef rendang, coconut rice & fried fish - superb! But the Indian bar crew wasn't that happy when I chose to change my...

We booked 4 nights at the Minang Cove Resort as we were looking for the perfect island retreat to follow our stay in Singapore. We were not disappointed.

"forget the time, just relax", said the owner at our arrival. And it was very easy following these words. A place like heaven - beautiful and quiet, good food and a kind staff. Charming rooms, very clean, clear water and fine sand. We very much enjoyed the daily tea break and the home made cake.
