The resort is simple. My room clean and spacious. The air-con effective. The position up to the sea is beautiful. The wind from the sea is helpful against the hot sun. The food is not bad. I'll give you a tip. If there are chinese customers go early to the restaurant because they could be very famished. Diving: To Sipadan... More

DIVE CENTER: Excellent facility, staff, dive instructors are knowledgeable fun and friendly, good dive boats and equipment. DIVES: while the famous barracuda storm at Barracuda Point is the most sought after, there are other dive sites on Sipadan island such as White Tip Point, Hanging Gardens, Turtle Cave which are also very good. Had numerous sightings of White Tip reef... More

The floating resort on stilts is very cozy and calm. The staff are friendly and it's very comfortable. I would definitely recommend diving and snorkeling there. A lovely place that I would wanna visit again some time in the future.

Definitely a must-visit place in the world ! Thumbs up to all the staff from the ground, resort and snorkel guides. A unique turn-down experience during dusk, where they turn on the mosquito repellent. Go for a fullboard package that inclusive of snorkeling trip to Mabul & Kapalai. The house pool and & reef at its best too. The opportunity... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the resort. The atmosphere was much better than at the waterbungalows. At the restaurant it was more lively and we had a swimmingpool. The food was good and snorkeling great especially Sipidan. The houses were great.

The only thing we like about this resort is the diving center and excellent staff there The room, despite being very spacious and boasts an amazing view, seriously needs refurbishment, especially the bathroom. Water has some smell and salty taste i.e. not clean enough! My friend and I had rash during our stay and we suspected it's because of the... More

Sipadan Water village refuse to acknowledge an extraordinary terrorism situation with the attack on Mabul island last week. Both Malaysian and international governments have issued travel advisorys to this island and the East coast of Sabah as a whole forcing fully paid up guests to have no choice but to cancel already paid for reservations. Neither Suri or the manager... More

I came to Mabul Island knowing well that a 5 star PADI resort isn't 5 stars in the traditional sense. And this resort isn't. But for divers it's top notch. The dive crew are awesome--a large team of dive masters, boatmen and support staff. They're excellent at finding things on the bottom and great to deal with. Aside from nearby... More

Relax, warm, snorkeling, eat & sleep, that's heavenly!!! You can dive or snorkeling anytime from 7am to 5pm at resort vicinity. Meal provided was buffet style, I think weekend's meal would be more variety. The instructors in resort are friendly and encouraging. A great place to just blank yourself and have a good re-charge time as well as temporary escape... More

Great buffet meal with variety of choice - B/L/D, sometimes with a night performance. Nice snorkeling trip with friendly guidance, overall is very clean. However, room is without aircond, only ceiling fan, very hot at night.
