Where the naturally untainted foot of Mount Santubong gently welcomes the undulating South China Sea proudly sits Cove 55, a private boutique hotel hideaway where ethnic luxury takes on a refreshingly renewed and refined form.
Built originally as a holiday home for an Iban family, the sprawling villa is reborn as an intimate escape with just 16 individual guest rooms and suites.
The jewel of Cove 55 is an over-water platform sea deck with an infinity salt-water pool allowing guests to relish breathtaking uninterrupted panoramic views over the horizon.
At the heart of the retreat is the unpretentious, casual and social, ‘Kechala’, Cove 55’s destination restaurant that’s spearheading the concept of modern Sarawakian cuisine.
Beyond rejuvenating urban weary souls, it is the owners’ wish to have guests discover and immerse in the pride of the Sarawakian land here. Every aspect of Cove 55 is detailed to make you feel wonderfully relaxed at home, explore the lush diversity of Borneo, or indulge in the luxury of lounging about, doing nothing at all.
