Scuba Junkies has a new resort out on Mabul island about 45mins boat ride from Semporna. It was recommended by a number of people we had met travelling through Borneo. The resort is on the beach at Mabul island. The bungalows are beautiful and spotlessly clean with sliding veranda doors and hammocks on the porches, between the bungalows is all pretty flowers and plants and the common dining area has a big upstairs bar area with comfy lounging sofas, views out to see and nice cool breezes in the evenings. Food is all inclusive and is absolutely delicious!
The staff are very friendly, incredibly professional and excellent guides for diving. During our week of diving we had 6 different dive masters/instructors and all of them were excellent pointing out rare creatures and taking us to the best dive sites (of which there are many!)
We weren't too sure of our travel schedule so booked only a week in advance (to dive Sipadan you need to book EARLY as it's all permit based and gets full quick!) I got put on the waiting list for Sipadan for all of the days that we would be there and staff do there best to get everyone on the waiting list out for a day's diving at the protected site. We were lucky enough to get out on our third day, Sipadan really is something else the diversity and scenery of the reef there is just spectacular!
Highly recommended. We are already planning our next trip back here!
