It can be confusing when arriving at this resort... as there are two. An over-water resort and a land resort. We stayed at the land resort and really enjoyed it. We booked last minute so our room was quite simple. There are several floor plans of rooms available, so check these out before booking. The shower felt as if it... More

I have spent 5 nights at SMART for he primary reason of diving Sipadan Island. The resort is located on Mabul Island and operates a number of speedboats to get you to and from mainland as well as all the dive sites. The accommodation is to a very high standard even in the standard bungalows. Not sure whether it is... More

My husband and i spent 5 days in this resort and we where blown away by everything. It was quite an awesome Island experience. The locals where very friendly, our room was neat and tidy, and food was delish. On top of it management was well organised. will do it again.

There are a lot of things,especially the management arm of SMART needs to improve on as we experienced some hick-ups during our patronage there. We stayed there on the 2/11 until 5/11 whereby my group consists of 9 adults and 3 children under the age of 3. Earlier, we made our bookings during the dive expo in Malaysia (MIDE) with... More

My week at SMART can be summed up in the title to this review. SMART is the Four Seasons of Dive Resorts. I don’t have one complaint about the resort, its staff, the accommodations, the food, the boats, the dive equipment…anything. First and foremost, the resort does not book directly. You have to contact the resort and they will then... More

In general, it is expensive stay but the resort is very nice and friendly. Rooms are clean and convenient. Try to have a... More
