Very peaceful & simply beautiful... Staff are very friendly & helpful. Enjoyed my stay very much... I got the village rite in front of the beach, amazing... Beautiful sunset & the sound of waves just, perfect... The food was not bad either, but if you are a big eater, better ask for more portion... Lol

We have been here twice in the last couple of months and enjoyed our stay both times but not so sure we'll be back. It really is paradise, the island is remote and the cabins are just by the beach, we feel asleep to the waves crashing onto the sand and looked out to a dark sky full of stars.... More

Because of many recommendations in the internet and from other families we decided to spend a week family vacation on Pulau Sibu / Sea Gipsy. The Resort is very basic but nice and the overall cleanliness of the facilities is also ok. The staff is friendly; food is delicious - a relaxing getaway. Once you walk along the beach this... More

The Sea Gypsies have been slightly bemused today by the last 2 posts on the SG trip advisor site about the rubbish on Pulau Sibu. Our particular favourite sentence is: "it's not pleasant to see and really wouldn't take more than 30 minutes a day for 2-3 staff to clean up" Every morning at 8am two staff members clean the...

Lovely set up. Enjoyed the space, beach and sea. The day to day staff were fantastic - special mention to the South African girl behind the bar who was delightful. Impressed by the care taken over the look of the site. Advice? Beer mats (cold beer glasses in hot weather = drips), more comfy loungers, better medical kits and training... More

I have been in the region for the last 8 years travelling here and there and I can say: This resort is only fine, clearly not above average and therefore the price is way too expensive for what you get.... (Especially when you know the prices in Malaysia!) My review: - Rooms are "ok". I have to admit bed was... More

We spent a weekend there while on holiday in Singapore. The trip to and from Sibu went very smoothly. Lodgings are comfortable and food is plentiful. Good choice of cocktails, wines, ... Everything you'd want for a relaxing/romantic getaway. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It s probably the resort's policy to be this friendly, but it is genuine and... More

Our family travelling with friends from Singapore to Sibu. Expect extra charges for two pick ups within the same mini bus. Boat ride ok with the necessary life vests for adults and kids. At the resort you are welcomed with free drinks and the Happy song by W Farey. We found out later that the song was played each time... More

We travelled here just for the weekend, from Singapore. We did not dive, but we went on the "Sunset Island Cruise" which was fun. They take you in a boat to a small deserted island and make a bonfire. It is a bit expensive--RM50pp, plus you have to buy your drinks to take. (Maybe they could include one drink/beer). Anyways,...
