It costs about 200RM for 2 persons (return), from Newton Hawker (Outram option no longer in place) and it takes about 2 hours to Tg Leman Jetty. There are breaks in between so don't forget to change your Ringgits. Do remember small... More

From Johor Bahru, the ferry terminal is about 2hrs drive. And from the Ferry terminal the Sibu island resort is about 35 mts. The resort is quite big... More

The check-in was quick and staff were friendly. Our initial room was a superior room which was cosy and nicely sized. However the... More

We went with a mixed feeling esp. after reading some of the reviews written here. However, my sis who went during mid-year assured me that the place is going to be 'fun' especially for my 2 small kids (6yr and 3yr old girls). What we saw upon stepping on the jetty is a big one-operator resort island and were happily... More
