With minimalistic white decor and ample space in each room, a stay in Cove 55 in Santubong, Sarawak, conjures up an unrivalled sense of freedom and tranquility.

Cove 55 isn’t like any other holiday villa out to make a quick buck.

It was originally meant to be a private family holiday home, which reveals how much thought and personal investment went into the property. Quite by chance, it also happens to be the first luxury villa along Sarawak’s lush rainforest greenery in Santubong, which struck its husband and wife owners with the idea to turn it into the state’s first luxury for hire villa.

Boasting minimalistic white décor reminiscent of Marlon Brando's French Polynesian retreat, The Brando, but accented with traditional Iban influences which gives it a local touch, stepping foot into the place puts one’s mind immediately to ease. It evokes an incomparable sense of tranquility thanks to its clean façade and even cleaner interior design. Uncluttered and spacious with ample room for the body, mind and eyes to roam, each room within the villa conjures up an unrivalled sense of freedom and space for rest and rejuvenation.

Book any room within the premises and the breathtaking view of the South China Sea or Mount Santubong is yours to wake up to every morning, depending which side of the villa you are facing. Whether it is a romantic retreat with your special someone, a weekend jaunt with family or relaxing venue for a corporate event, Cove 55 has everything you need to see that wish come true, being designed to both impress and relax.

Consisting of 8 deluxe rooms, 2 suites and 2 private chalets, the property can comfortably accommodate 24 adults and comes fully-staffed and equipped with top-notch amenities. The chalets are removed a short distance from the main area for ultimate privacy, but still remain close enough to the well-trained staff so you will still be well taken care of should any need arises. Individual service can also be crafted according to your specific requirements to ensure you enjoy as smooth-sailing a stay as possible.

The next time you’re looking for a little slice heaven in Sarawak, look no further than Cove 55 with its lush tropical surroundings and white walls that look like the icing on top of what is a quiet sanctuary away from the city.
