Three times we have been to Minang Cove Resort, and three times we have had a fantastic time. Our 1st trip was to attain our open water dive cert, the last 2 were to take the new cert out for a spin and to relax from the hustle and bustle of Singapore. The house reef is of high quality, we have seen sting rays, squid, black tipped reef sharks, turtles, sergeant major fish, parrot fish, bump head parrot fish (huge), Nemo (of course) and a selection of Nemo's cousins, lion fish and many more I've not identified. The children enjoy the challenge of jumping off the jetty and making new friends. The staff are amazingly friendly and accommodating, mixing delicious cocktails, service always with a smile, and delicious food. The manager, Nicholas, is very welcoming and goes out of his way to ensure that our holidays are the best yet.
The rooms are basic and comfortable, with no city distractions (tv or wifi), encouraging us to make the most of the water. On our last stay we found that the pillows, however, could be improved.
Thank you to the team at Minang Cove!
