This was our third visit to Sea Gypsy and it lived up to our memories from previous visits. My wife and I both had the same euphoric feeling when the speedboat carrying us from Mersing came around the headland and we got our view of the resort nestling in amongst the trees just behind the beach. Our cabin was clean... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the family chalet. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff and were served with complimentary drinks while the staff carried our luggage to our chalet. My son went crazy when he saw that there's a playground right in front of our chalet. If that wasn't enough, the chalet is facing the beach... More

Ok if you’re looking for 5 star pampering this is not for you, however if you are looking for a great location, safe beach, friendly staff and some entertainment for kids while you look out over the ocean in a quaint bar this is most defiantly for you. For a relaxed family break this is a must. I would also... More

A truly relaxing place away from all the hassle for those who do not need luxury around but just a place with no distraction other than the jungle, fantastic sandy beach and the coral sea around you. Great diving sites nearby. This is definitively a family oriented place with young kids.

Good place for a quick getaway at the beach. I'm not a diver so can't comment on that, but the rooms were quite nice for such basic accommodation. Food was good and the staff were mostly friendly and helpful. They stayed up late to wait for us after our arrival was delayed by traffic. The only thing to complain about... More

We were visiting Singapore in August from Europe and wanted to squeeze in 10 days of quality beach time with no news, no shoes and three kids, two of which are teenagers. On arrival I was a little worried my older kids would get bored because there was nothing to do except go swimming and fishing - but what was... More

My husband and I stayed at Sea Gypsy in February and found it to be a great little place to get away to from the hustle and bustle of Singapore! The resort's boat picked us up from the jetty and took us across to the island which is about 20 minutes away. We were warned before boarding that 'the winds... More

Having been sick for most of January, we were looking for a 4 day break over CNY. Sea Gypsy fit the bill. After an easy drive, the boat took us from Tanjong Leman to the island. Due to the winds, it wasn't possible to drop us on the beach, so we docked at Coconut Village (which looks like it has... More

We visited the Sea Gypsy in July 2012 with over 30 people and had the most amazing weekend. This isn't a luxury resort so come expecting bugs, average food, weathered looking decor and a lot of beach debris. This isn't 5 star luxury but it's 5 star fun.

I've been several times - it is very basic, no hot water or air con, no wifi, and exactly what we want as a break from bustling city life. The buffet food is fine, and caters to young palates very well. The Malaysian staff are consistently fabulous. Very helpful, polite, and ready with a joke. The foreign staff (often what... More
