If you are looking for a simple island escape, where you can switch off and truly unwind, Minang Cove may just be the answer. A treasure on Tioman, this small hotel features 12 humble chalets and 2 villas – beachfront to lap up the ocean at your doorstep, or climb up the cobbled steps on the hill for breath-taking sea views. Nestled in tropical gardens and unspoilt rainforest, the rooms have no frills but with this location they really don’t need any. Dine on the terrace to enjoy local and western fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Games and books are on offer for all to enjoy as WiFi and TV’s are a no no here. As the sun sets guests are invited to join the team with the evening shark feed of the docile black tip reef sharks. Days are usually spent snorkelling the cove, trekking the jungle paths to the nearby Tunamaya, Bagus Place or local Malay village of Mukut or venture further afield on an ocean discovery with the in-house dive school.
