5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Romantic, quiet and delicious food. And the snorkeling was great. I felt like I was swimming in a big aquaria. Even if the monsoon hadn't quit let go yet, and we had a bit wind and waves, it didn't matter! I do recommend this to everyone who would like a stay on an island. For me it was nice with... More

I went with my wife and 3 friends, the resort had a great family vibe and even though we did not have children we were very well looked after. We had such a great time despite the high winds and rough sea. Once we arrived everything was fantastic, the chalets were great, the food was delicious (great not having to... More

Went for a short 3D2N weekend getaway. Driving there to the jetty quite straight forward. Catching the ferry is not difficult as long as you match their timings. The more senior staffs are mainly Caucasians while there are many who are locals. All of them are very friendly, warm and always do their best to meet your needs. Easy check-in,... More

This is a back to basic rustic resort that tries to operate as sympathetically as possible with the local environment. We stayed in a family cabana, which was sparce but clean. To limit the environmental footprint there is no a/c (but there is a ceiling fan) and no hot water. They have brilliant evening children's care, so kids can eat... More

I live in Singapore and was looking for a nice, relaxing beach holiday nearby. This place was perfect! The resort coordinated everything from van pickup, to boat transfer and even a beautiful birthday cake for my friends. We did nothing but enjoy ourselves and the beautiful island. The staff were friendly and helpful in all ways and the accommodation was... More

Wonderful quiet place, scenic, and well organized. Food was fantastic. Service was outstanding. Cabins were very charming and well kept. I did a dive trip which was well done, and a snorkel/beach trip which was also good. Water visibility was so-so, but that's just a chance one takes. Staff actually partied one night with the guests (those who wanted to... More

I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Sea Gypsy. We had a great time and have returned feeling very relaxed. Going to Sea Gypsy you need to be aware that you aren't going to a 5 star resort. There's no air con or hot water, the food isn't anything special and there's sand everywhere so you'll never... More

This is a repeat review after visiting again after 2 yrs. Its easy to get to from Singapore, and no wifi or cell ph coverage make it a lovely break from city life. No hot water or aircon add a rustic touch- you sleep under a mosquito net at night. The food is buffet style, delicious malasian food and plenty... More

This resort caters to a specific clientele. First, you need to like the beach and can disconnect from blackberry without fear. Second, you believe in free-play for kids and can deal with 'within eye sight' supervision. Thirdly, you do not have a picky palate. Lastly, you will not scream at the sight of creepy crawlies in their normal habitat. If... More
