Pros: tranquil setting, no mosquitos, diving northern Sabah islands and Mabul without paying Sipadan prices Cons: just about everything else Booking/Getting there: the manager failed to comprehend/answer questions posed regarding transfer, night dives, buddy diving on the house reef etc, making 24 e-mails over several weeks necessary to nail down details and complete a booking. The arrival schedule is very... More

We stayed at singamata in November to do our padi course. Initial impressions are great, it's a beautiful little resort built over a reef. The room we were in, twin share student zone, was really basic with just a fan and lots of ants. Not great. The toilets were pretty dirty, dark and small and the showers are just over... More

My experience at Singamata was largely underwhelming – and I arrived fully expecting budget accommodation. I visited with my boyfriend and spent 3 nights in a deluxe room, hoping to recover from our climb of Mt Kinabalu directly beforehand. The location was fantastic for relaxing, with plenty of hammocks scattered around the boardwalks and stairs directly into the ocean for... More

Getting through the Singamata office in Semporna can be a little tough, the people inside seemed a bit distracted, but once we jumped on a boat and got to the resort itself we had a great time.

Singamata Adventures and Reef Resort was established in 2007. Built over a beautiful coral reef, the resort offers both tranquility and adventure. It provides an ideal base, not only to divers and snorkelers but to anyone seeking an affordable and relaxing haven to unwind and escape from everyday stress. Being an authorized Padi 5-star resort, we are ideally equipped to offer a wide range of courses catering to different needs and budgets.

We are the ideal choice not only for families and groups, but also for couples, backpackers and lone travellers. Our objective is to provide an excellent getaway… either on one of our brand new speedboats offering daily island trips for snorkeling and diving, or just a tranquil place to read a book on one of secluded sun-decks. We have great diving right off the site, plus we have a sea aquarium with some really large fish that you can swim around or even dive with. We also have free wi-fi for those wanting to stay in touch with the rest of the world, or perhaps show off your beautiful surroundings to envious work colleagues on facebook! Singamata Adventures and Reef Resort – an ideal retreat for divers, snorkelers, families and friends. ... more   less
