Cove 55: A stunning hotel and nature getaway
Nestled in the coastal town of Santubong, the hotel is home to 13 new villas, two suites and 13 rooms. Featuring a mix of contemporary designs and luxurious elements, the property welcomes one and all for an idyllic stay. The balcony rooms open out to an outdoor area with a day bed, where you can admire stellar sights of the South China Sea. Meanwhile, the garden rooms come with a private courtyard and outdoor day bed – perfect for quiet days away from the city bustle. Holidaying with the fam? Book a suite for more space and scenic views.
But the true star of the show at Cove 55 is the new series of one- and two-bedroom villas. Choose between ocean or mangrove villas and enjoy your tropical hideaway with either ocean views or the tranquillity of a private mangrove.
We’re eyeing the glorious ocean villas: each comes with a private pool for lounging while you take in those magnificent panoramic views. You’ll be well taken care of with a fully stocked minibar, an espresso machine and a smart TV in every villa. Plus, an outdoor deck, an open-plan bedroom and lounge area, and a bathroom with a rain shower and bathtub.
When you’re not enjoying the luxurious accommodations, explore the hotel grounds to find the 24-hour fitness centre, library and 30m-long saltwater infinity pool. Want a cocktail during your pool hang? Cove Bar will shake up cocktails or pour you a glass of wine. For a bite to eat, head to Kechala for a menu of Sarawakian flavours made with seasonal local produce.
Up for an adventure? Approach the friendly staff to find out more about their curated selection of private experiences for guests. Head beyond the hotel grounds to hike up Mount Santubong with a guide (it’s just 10 minutes away) or bump into crocodiles on a boat ride. To spend the day with one of Borneo’s endangered species, make your way to Semenggoh Nature Reserve to interact with orangutans. You can also explore the surrounding national parks and fishing villages. Or take a trip to Sarawak Cultural Village to learn about the local culture and lifestyle, watch music and dance performances, and check out interactive workshops and classes.
