A fantastic sea side holiday for the whole family. Read all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and true enough on all the good things mentioned.
Beautiful Vicky welcomed us. Moderate rooms but sufficient. My 2 teenagers enjoy jumping off the pier in the evening with Daniel and Sophia (the owner's 2 kids age 7 & 9).
As we are there during Raya, we had the courtesy of eating the ketupat and beef rendang..yummy. The Sat seafood BBQ is excellent. Oh the lunch ala carte, just love the burger.
Drinks from mini bar is a bit pricey RM10 per can drink. Bring your own and store in the mini fridge provided in the rooms ;)
The waterfall is beautiful. So secluded that we had the whole fall to ourselves. A few private beaches along the way to the waterfall. We had the beach all to ourselves :).
The jungle trek is about 2 hours walk which we didn't make it. We turned back after stopping at the first private beach swim. :(
Staff are very friendly. Always serve with a smile. Before we finish our breakfast, our rooms were made up. Speedy service.
When we were returning to Mersing, we stopped at Genting to wait for ferry. There we shopped for some last minute duty free shopping and bought some duty free cigarettes from the local store there. We also enquired some people who stay at the beach chalet there. They are paying RM380/pax 3D/2N all incl. (ferry, lodging, meals and snorkeling trips) while we paying RM480/pax, which is all worth every cent of it. Firstly, we have the privacy of a secluded cove all to ourselves of about 25 persons only. We are served by 14 staff there. We don't need to go out by boat to snorkel. We just jump out of the pier anytime of the day. We got to swim with sharks and turtles. We can jump off the pier for fun. All these for just a hundred RM extra....Worth every single cent of it.
Rooms are with aircond and water heater. Shower gel is provided. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner. Coffee making facility provided with some coffee and tea packets.
We start missing Minang Cove the moment we were leaving it. For sure we recommend this to everybody who want to have a wonderful time and don't mind paying the little extra.
