Took a direct Malaysia Airlines flight to Tawau and 3 of us got a direct pickup from the airport going to Semporna - drive took almost 2 hours due to some major construction, but the boat ride from Semporna to Pom Pom Island took just about 45 mins. It was low season so it was lovely and quiet. Divemasters and... More

I went to Mabul last year and thought I would cover this side of Semporna, having heard much about the dive site. Mabul and Sipadan were good but they were crowded, more expensive and Mabul was dirty. In contrast Pom Pom was private, quite, sea life was equally good and very good value for money. The resort itself is small... More

Food is awesome, the DMs are cool and friendly, the room is clean, the beach is gorgeous. This dive resort also has amenities specially for underwater photographers. They provide a camera room, a long camera table outside for you to fuss with your cameras, and even a soft carpet in the dive boat for you to safely put your cameras... More

We spent four happy days here diving at the beginning of September. Their main clientele is Chinese so I think everyone was quite surprised to see two English girls. We booked over the phone, the lady was incredibly helpful and spoke great English. We made the mistake of getting the night bus from KK which was absolutely terrible - icy... More

Not really much else you'd want from a dive resort on a paradise island: - clean rooms - great food - lovely staff - great setup Shore dives are easily done and boarding the boat is a mere 10m from the equipment area. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially the two young girls behind the bar who speak... More

Just came back from our 5D4N stay with CBR. When we first reach there, we saw the unwilling-to-serve manner of the reception staff and the resort manager. It's only after an hour, one of the Asst. Manager came to explain the details to lookouts to us. After check into the rooms, found only the beds are very uncomfortable, the water... More

I opted to get my Open Water license done here, having had awesome reviews of this place (and of the diving in the area) by a close friend. I wasn't disappointed. The diving was awesome and the dive centre exceedingly well run. The DMs and Instructors really knew what they were doing and their passion for diving really came through.... More

If is not because of diving...I will rate no star at all for this place. Stayed in a long house, the only thing great is the bed, everything else is in terrible condition, no water from tap,believed due to the salt built up in the tap that caused. Toilet was dirty with yellow stains on it. One day afternoon after... More

We ended up not staying at this resort so the comment pertains only to our experience dealing with their staff in Semporna. We called last minute on the way from Maliau basin and on the phone the staff seemed really proactive. They said they could not tell us the price though and that we had to come to their office...
