Excellent services for back packers like me who expect at least a fair services. Room was a-ok (come on! U're in the island, u wont stay in a room for the rest of the days right!) They have fan and air cond room, meals was great. If you buy seafoods, they wont hesitate to cook. Lobsters was super fresh and... More

If you are looking for a luxury accomodation. Arung hayat is not the place.. if you wanted to experience local culture, I do suggest everyone to try out. their service is very good. They replied our emails frequently.. i booked 3D2N package RM450 which includes everything (room+snorkling+food). It is quite cheaper compared to Uncle Chang the diver all very nice... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mabul for 5D4N. We arrived at Semporna 4pm in the evening and were told that we couldn't get to the island as the last boat already departed and they couldn't get us to the island until the next morning (due to the new safety protocol of ESSCOM). The very apologetic owner gave us a... More

The management didn't tell you anything and poor transportation arrangement. We booked a pickup "taxi" service RM 100 per car but it is not a car, only a mini van. Fine! They told you the boat schedule after arrived in their office and asked you to wait 3 hours. Okay! Then, we requested a flexible earlier and remind them in... More

Went for 3D2N with family for full board package. Stayed at newly constructed "VIP" room facing the sea. Decent food, clean room. Did snorkeling 4x with family members. Spotted a turtle swimming just outside accommodation. Worth the trip.

Basic accomodation but excellent service from my agent ( kembara pulau semporna ) and also from Arong Hayat staff and kids. Worth for every single cent you paid with delicious food serve and also wonderful people in Semporna and also Mabul island. The agency really keep in touch and update us from time to time. We definately will come again.

basically you get what you paid for, the room with fan, and the mattresses is ok, clean without any rat or cockroach...attached bathroom is basic, food is simple, some may dont like but it's a budget style, dont expect more unless you buy some lobster from the sea ppl and let them cook. now, for the worst part, the water...

Firstly, I would like to highlight that Arung Hayat didn't follow basic safety measurements whilst transporting their tourist to Mabul. 1. None of our identities were taken down. No information on our passport number, names. Nothing whatsoever. If our boats were to capsize or if one of the tourist were to get lost in the sea.. no one would know... More

I was here couple of years back actually so I don't know whether this review is applicable or not. Anyway, we only stayed for 1 night but that 1 night had been interesting. Basic accommodation. Well at least the toilet sewage system were properly aligned. Food was so-so..also basic. First time in my life I saw a really huge tuna... More

Food was enough, room were clean (not rat or bugs), snorkeling equipment was provided as well as 3 dives a day. As often with the negative reviews, be aware that it depends a lot of user... More
