Wonderful experience overall. Dive guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Sipadan was incredible to dive. We were there for the 4 nights / 3 days package which only includes one day at Sipadan, but we expressed interest in diving Sipadan more and we were able to dive there all three days. Highly recommended.

We were there from 3/13-3/17. Everything was arranged when we booked the hotel on their official website. Basically all you need is to be there, you can rent the equipments in the resort, have three meals per day, really don't need any cash on hand. The last day, our boat for departure is at 11am, so they offer light lunch... More

We had 2 requirements when booking our dive holiday... With Serena from Asian dive vacations - Air conditioning & good diving! WE GOT BOTH! Sipadan Island proved to have so much on offer!!! The visibility was great to view the abundance of amazing corals, fish, turtles & creature species with kaleidoscope of colours. Brilliant wall, swim, cavern & drift dives.... More

Not worth the money. The rooms and food are average. The hotel staff is not very helpful. I also found the main office very challenging and unhelpful to deal with. When I was booking I had to send 3 e-mails. Just to get a reply after 5 days. Diving off the dock is one of the best tune up dives... More

My girlfriend and me spend 4 days beginning of October 2013 at the Borneo Divers Mabul Resort. The bungalows are quite simple but nice decorated and quite spacious. The shower is not the best, but it works. The whole resort is kept very clean; they clean the their part of the beach as well. The food is the only downside... More

We stayed for 5D4N in the resort in a room overlooking the beach. Myself and my boyfriend both went for the diving, I did my Open Water PADI and he did his Advanced PADI. We stayed at Tawau & the resort organized a transfer for us at the beginning and end of our stay. On the way from the resort... More

Borneo Divers are an excellent dive set up with fantastic DMs & very nice traditional accommodation with great food. For the truly amazing Sipadan experienced BD is the best divers place to stay (also Ideal if Muck Diving is your thing). Would return in a heartbeat.
