We had 4 days at the hotel went on a snorkelling day, jungle walking to the Twin Peaks, swimming and looking at the coral gardens just offshore from the hotel and generally relaxing and enjoying the island ambiance.
"Beautiful beach and coral, and incredible service."
I don't usually do reviews, but this was a really excellent experience. Minang cove is a fairly small group of chalets, and when we landed, all the staff we met knew which group we were in, and which chalet we were staying in. Minang's manager was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Arranging for any activity was really easy, and the staff take the time to tell you anything you need to know. The area near the shore at Minang Cove has a LOT of fish. We took a boat out to a nearby island, and snorkeled there too. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious (we had 4 people in a seaview cabin, and there was plenty of space, it was clean, and the view was nice). One thing though, there was no Wi-Fi; but after we reached, the lack of Wi-Fi was really not a concern. It was a great place to get away.
beautiful Tropical Island Resort, very comfortable, wonderful snorkeling experience. Drinks and food prices reasonable, excellent good value breakfast.
Hire charge of mask and snorkel excessive, very spread out, especially to reception and boat, need a shuttle to get from one end to the other, also need a shuttle bus into the village.
Recommend beach restaurant just outside entrance for delicious cheap seafood and beer.
Very friendly staff, great snorkeling, wonderful (Penghulu) house
Monkeys, lizards and squirrels could be watched right outside the house, much to the childrens pleasure.
The hotel is very private and secluded, so we could get a break from hectical Singapore city life.
Food and drinks were good as well.
Sipping cocktails and mocktails out on the pier was wonderful, and the water is so turquoise and clear that you can watch all kinds of fish right from the pier. We even saw a sea turte and some reef shark!
Swimming and snorkeling right at the hotel is possible and nice, we would definitely recommend water shoes though, since there is a lot of dead coral pieces and rocks in the water (with shoes we had no problems)
Definitely a place we would recommend and come back to.
At the end of a jetty stretching out over the crystal clear sea- a table awaits you for the most romantic dinner ever. Unless …More
We stayed for 3 nights and love this hotel. First of all, air conditioning and hot showers were a must for me as Tioman is rather hot and humid. The island is very simple and beautiful and a wonderful place to relax. Tioman Dive Resort is basically a very nice new motel with outstanding well appointed clean rooms. I would recommend staying here even if you don't dive but if you do, it's even better. B & J dive is just steps away and they offer awesome guided trips with highly trained dive masters and great equipment. After time in the water, you can hang your stuff to dry on racks outside of each room. The folks at the hotel and dive center are the best and can help you with almost anything. This area of Tioman (ABC) is chill with nice restaurants and places to gather for drinks in the evening. I will definitely stay here on my next visit!
