With Sipadan Island only a 20-minute boat ride away, this campus of over-water villas is optimally placed for the ultimate Malaysian diving adventure. You’ll probably see more turtles in a day here than you will for the rest of your life, along with huge, dense shoals of circling barracuda. Mabul and Kapalai, barely 15mins across the reef, are better for macro life.
Inspired by the architecture of local Bajau (‘Sea Gypsy’) villages, the resort is heavenly, with uninterrupted views across the lagoon and expert dive guides on site. A 4-night stay is recommended to make the most of this extraordinary location.
