Would highly recommend.. stayed for 3 nights and its really unique environment.. We stayed in a basic room which provided everything you would want for a short stay.. cleanliness along with a comfy bed, safe, tea and coffe making facilities.. The room was calm, peaceful and had everything we needed.. The staff are very friendly and are happy to help..... More

Uncle Chang's dive lodge is always a good choice since I've been there last year (2011) for the first time. So, this is my second time and I can see that UC dive lodge had been through a renovation and still ongoing when we arrived there. I can tell that UC dive lodge always serve the best for their guests.... More

I was at Uncle Chang’s dive lodge with my 2 other friends. We had our past over vacation at UC for 5 days. If you have low budget and you are planning to go for a holiday at mabul island, I think UC is the best choice. Since my friend and I don’t have diving licence yet, so we didn't... More

The view in Mabul is amazing, plus the crystal clear water. Then comes Sipadan underwater, 1000 times amazing than Mabul! (I told this many times to others). A... More

For RM 100 per adult and RM 50 child is really a steal for the day in this area. Lodge is clean. Meals are good. staffs are helpful. For those who are keen to snorkeling in the area, you can rent the snorkeling gears at RM 15 each and 2 boat ride to the nearby coral reef. My kids 9... More
