“Wonderful 1 night stay weekend break”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Friendly wonderful staff who want to please. I had probably the best room with view over the sea by the jetty. Drank cocktails with Nicholas, Raj, Rob and Ojai then jumped in the sea at night after feeding the sharks. Swam with a turtle in the morning and sat thinking i'd been there a week. The most amazing small boutique resort for those who like a small quiet paradise getaway. Don't expect high end luxury living though. This is just what it is here enjoy the view and relax. I was checking this place out to return when I have more time. Thanks again.

We had the most awesome 4 night hol at Minang Cove. It was perfect for us. The location was majestic - we were in beach villa. Short jetty walk to great snorkelling. My highlight was swimming with a green turtle right there. Snorkelling tour to Jahat was also sensational. Saw so many fish/coral types. The staff were magic. The Nicholas and the Nepalese staff made us feel like family. My kids loved them all and we were v sad to leave. The food was also better than expected. Healthy options and fresh. It was great having no internet and no TV. We also got to know the other folks staying there. Such a relaxed and beautiful place. We will be back!

Room Tip: The beach rooms are excellent.

We spent 4 nights in this beautiful island (2 weeks ago)
Minang Cove is just a perfect, relaxing, private place with a maximum of around 40 people at the same time.
Nice and clean water, sandy beach very nice for snorkelling.
Our room was perfect, clean with balcony with a lovely view on the sea.
Food options were limited but very delicious and good quality.
The staff is very kind, helpful a group of lovely people.
A big thank you for everyone for making such a friendly atmosphere and made our family holiday so special.
I did my first scuba diving in there, just to mention something more exciting and a couple of different snorkelling tours as well.
Richard, Nicholas and all the others THANK YOU.

It's a short 3d 2n getaway trip, but its an amazing holiday. We were transferred from Kg Genting to the resort by speedboat. We were so amazed by the serenity and the beauty of this place. We dont have to worry about our heavy luggages as the staffs will help you out to shift the luggages from the jetty to the room. Cold welcome drinks were served, great for a hot sunny day. Then we were briefed by Nicholas (the Resort Manager) on meal times, activities, etc..He treats every guests as VIP, he will check with all the guests is everything ok and hows our food. The restaurant have different dinner theme everynight, personally I think Indian theme is great, especially the brownie cake. They will serve around 5-6 dishes and also comes with an appetizer and a dessert. After dinner, they will have a fish feeding activity at the jetty, Ive never seen so many baby black tip shark at once - 8 sharks. It's really fun, and is one of the unique activity in this resort. After fish feeding activity, there are some games/Q & A activity going on. You will never get bored. There are a few type of breakfast you can choose from the menu - Pancakes, Omelette or American Breakfast. There are also a mini buffet breakfast served. Day activity including snorkelling around the resort or just lazing on the sundeck chair, There is also a dive shop in resort. What we loved most about this hotel is their polite staffs and their great services. They will take care even the slightest details. Too bad our holiday is too short. Nevertheless, we did enjoyed our time very much.

Room Tip: Choose deluxe room, as there are a lot of steps to climb for superior room

It is a beautiful property with a homely atmosphere! You can actually snorkel around the resort beach, with beautiful multicolored corals, reef sharks, turtles and lots of fishes. The beach villa is beautiful with the serene view out into the sea. Food options were limited but of good quality.

Would love to go back!

Our family stayed 4 nights in the hotel in June. We booked 2 rooms. Both rooms were clean, pleasant, fully furnished, with air condition and a relatively big bathroom.
The staff waited us at the ferry port, and with a speedboat, transferred to the hotel. On arriving (about 8 am), we were offered with a delicious breakfast, while our luggages were taken to the rooms.
During the 4 days, the staff was very friendly and helpful to us, they chatted with us during mealtimes. It happened, that a staff member offered us fresh mango for eleven o`clock meal, thinking that we might be hungry. All staff members were generous :)
The meals were great (malay dinner, indian dinner, seafood dinner, etc.), afternoon tea was included (delicious cakes).
The hotel is situated at the seaside, the water is clean, perfect for snorkeling and diving.

Room Tip: The rooms were in the jungle, monkeys, squirrels around, but be prepared for uninvited visitors, eg...
