Simply stunning, simple and stunning! This place is a little slice of paradise, with fantastic staff, good food and the most stunning location I have had the pleasure to stay at. The rooms are somewhat basic and a little rough around the edges, especially when compared to a city break hotel. However considering the location at the edge of a...

Having stayed in many other resorts in Tioman (Berjaya, Genting, Salang, Panuba & Paya), I would rate Minang Cove at the very top of the list. The place was clean, the grounds beautifully landscaped, and the service warm and efficient. Unlike many other Tioman resorts, there was no stench of refuse or sight of litter anywhere on the resort grounds....

This was really a gem tucked away in the quieter part of Tioman. Having stayed in Tioman at least a dozen times, we welcomed this little hideaway that gave us clean rooms, attentive service and a relaxing time. We booked the cheapest seaview chalet and although this was older than the other rooms, it was still one of the best...

We arrived into Tioman from Singapore using Berjaya Air. Good flight which took off and arrived early. Tony, our resort proprietor, was already at the airport waiting to transfer us by boat to his hotel. A beautiful ride along the shoreline to Minang Cove and help was at hand on our arrival to deal with our luggage. (I don't travel...

We actually went in March 2010 and am finally writing a review. The accommodations are rustic, like a camping lodge, but clean, and comfortable and is very fitting for the simple and tropical setting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were plenty of wildlife sightings from our room, between the buildings, and snorkeling. Food was simple and delicious....

The problem I usually have with holidays in Malaysia is that they tend to be neither here nor there : standards are usually not as high as in Singapore, offerings not as good-value as in Thailand or Indonesia - for what you pay/get. Tioman is beautiful especially where Minang Cove is situated - in the southern tip or a 30-min...
