Was great from start to finish, we had a ride over to the rig and a welcoming party awaiting from all the staff. Within the next hour after checking in we were off to our first dive at Mabul, my mask broke on the first boat dive in and the instructor kindly let me use his. We had a three... More

Fantastic sunsets and awesome crew to look after you. Best place to really get a full on diving experience, Diving right under the rig itself is very cool also, just kit up and in you go, lowered down on the elevator directly into the water or step off as you like. Not to mention the night dives!! Diving haven!! When... More

Diving around Sipadan good, in 6 days package 2 days secured. Diving organized very good/professional. Rest of the dives around Kapalan / Mabul not that spectacular. Rooms relatively small, but only needed for sleeping. Food is good, enough variation and taste good to very nice

I did the four day, three night package and wish I'd have stayed longer. The rig as a concept is unique in itself and having all the dive gear right there on the rig made it very atmospheric when you're having dinner and a beer in the evening! I was lucky enough to go during a quiet week and had... More

We just stayed here for 4 days and had a great time. Airport pickups at Tawau was great as was the boat transfer. Awesome rocking up to the rig and taking the lift up, nice welcome from staff. Good orientation by energetic staff member (Brynne). Food for the entire stay was excellent, good mix of western and eastern. Never was... More

We booked 5 nights on the rig in order to get 2 days guaranteed at Sipidan. We were lucky to get 3 days and loved each and every one. Bumphead parrotfish too numerous to count, lots of reef sharks, turtles, the HUGE jack school, and large schools of smaller reef fish off the walls. What's not to love about that?... More

I did extensive research before visiting Seaventures. My only reason for visiting Semporna and Seaventures, was to visit Sipidan. While I enjoyed my stay, I wouldn't return, here's why: Pre service: 5 star - although I recommend that the driver communicates a little more. There were times I doubted if I was with a staff member and where we were... More

ahh! Sipadan! Made even more memorable by this one of a kind dive hotel. Excellent courteous staff, one of the most Experienced Instructors/Guides (thank you Jonatan!), comfortable fully functional rooms (the aircon is better than most 5*resorts) and a Captain and chef who would come and discuss your needs in person. We are vegetarians, and were looked after well. Throw... More
