I just came back from my 7 visit at Mabul, and i know its not my last time. Scuba Junkie's beach resort is just a perfect place to go if you want to experince Borneo's significant marine life. The Staff at the resort are so nice and helpfull, and they really makes you feel very welcome. The divestaff is very qualified and are experts in finding rare fish that you don't see many places in the world.
The food at the resturant is very good, and there is fresh fruit every day! Even my 2 year old daughter loved the food there. The rooms are very nice and clean, and you feel like you stay at very expensive hotel, but the price is very good!!. We spent hours sitting at the hammock at the balcony. Before i travelled there by my self, but this time a brought my family. Its the perfect place both for familys and travellers. If you want to meet new people the resturant and the bar is perfect for that but if you just want to spent some family time there is also plenty of room for that. The beach is keept very clean and is very child friendly too. Diving or snorkling just outside the resort is fantastic and worth going back for.
I really only have good things to say about Scuba Junkies beach resort and the staff there. Everyone I have recomended it too loves it just as much as i do.
And extra thing i love too is that Scuba Junkie do so much for the locals and the enviroment. Fx. Shark sanctuary, turtle hatchery, reef cleans ect. Its just fantastic to experince such a commitment to the marine life.
The resort is placed just at the beach and at the jetty my daughter experinced a huge turtle swimming by 3 times. As you can imagin she still talkes about it.
So to sum up:
Rooms: 5 stars -clean - VERY nice and very big
Staff: 5 starts -So helpfull and know so much about the marine life and the locals at mabul too.
Surroundings (beach ect:) 5 stars - keept so clean and nice and the garden too.
Food: 5 stars. -Very tastefull, both malay food and western food. -Lots of fresh fruit.
-and they have a band night once a week too!
All in all a great place wich have my best recomandations. !!
