The resort is located on a beautiful small island which can be walked around in no more than an hour. It consists of dorms and private rooms. We stayed in a private room (Delux Air-con Room) for a week and it was great. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a fantastic bed , AC, wardrobe, desk and even...

We've split this review into two parts, accommodation and diving: Accommodation: 3 stars: the rooms are large but best can be described as basic and very much like a hostel. There are no wardrobes, TV or fridges. The air conditioning wasn't great either, the staff were helpful and got it 'regassed' but even after that can best be described as...

My husband, two teenage sons and I stayed at the Mabul Beach Resort and dove with Scuba Junkie. The room, food, boat transfers to Semporna, and diving are sold as a package that you purchase from Scuba Junkie Semporna. They are super-responsive and helpful as you plan your trip and will book the airport transfers for you. For us, their...

I've stay here with my wife for 3 nights. Overall it was great experience - watching turtle at rehabilitation centre, diving with friendly dive master around Mabul Island, island hopping including tour around 'bajau laut' village. All inclusive and the service was excellent. Their food was okay for me. For those who love seafood maybe you must find another resort...

the Mabul Beach resort is a good option to stay for your diving. The rooms are stunning and comfy. Food is basic but tasty. The staff are friendly and effective. Scuba Junkie is doing a fantastic job to make your stay as pleasant and comfy possible. The diving is something out of this world. The dive guides are great and...

We were lucky to have been able to stay at both the beach and water bungalow resorts(see separate review) After our Island resort stay at Lankayan Island was cancelled last minute, we phoned the resort to see if any availability on anything they had left. Fortunately they had a garden room, which we stayed in for 5 nights. The pick...

We had the most amazing stay at the Mabul Beach Resort on Mabul Island. It was truly like staying in paradise! We were unsure about the safety of this part of Sabah but felt very safe and looked after on Mabul Island. We stayed in a dorm and it was true luxury, but still very affordable. If you are coming...
