We had the most amazing stay at the Kapalai Island Resort. It was so tranquil and such a wonderful experience. We spent 5 days and 4 nights are this resort on a dive package. This trip was part of our honeymoon and we would definitely recommend it. You don't have to be a diver to enjoy this place but unless you are diving you would probably not enjoy it as much if you want somewhere to sunbathe on a beach, in that case I would recommend Lankayan Island as it has a similar feel to here. The staff were incredible here and we did not have to lift a finger. They were bubbly and always up for a laugh we could not say enough in their favour about them. You are literally just 'plonked' in the middle of the sea which is fantastic. We had the end chalet so we had uninterrupted views around us, it was increadibly peacful and so relaxing. There is an abundance of sea life here and every dive we did here was different. The dive masters we had wer brilliant - in particular Ben, as he went out of his way to show us as much as he could. Sipidan is something to be experienced but be wary that you do not go every day - your name is put into a draught and if you are lucky enough to get there then you won't be disappointed.
