Layang Layang Island Resort Sdn Bhd is an exclusive resort that dominates the Layang Layang island - an oceanic atoll of Spratly Islands situated approximately 300km northwest of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia. Fondly known as "The Jewel of the Borneo Banks", it is truly a diver's paradise. As many as 14 coral reefs have formed here, creating a breathtaking underwater scenery. The dive sites are well known for the intriguing hammerhead sharks and pygmy seahorses among other rare creatures. An hour's flight north of Kota Kinabalu, the island on which Layang Layang Island Resort Sdn Bhd nestled lies in 2,000m of ocean and due partly to the depth, this atoll has become famous for sightings of large pelagic species and for wall diving. Layang Layang Island Resort Sdn Bhd is the only resort on the island besides a Royal Malaysia Navy base. The resort, designed to look like the traditional Long House comprises 86 cosy rooms, restaurant and bar, outdoor swimming pool, Dive Center with certified diving instructors and a variety of diving courses among other facilities for modern comforts. Come for the exclusive and intriguing diving experience at this remote destination out of the world, where rare and uncommon underwater creature awaits you!

This sort of diving has to be experienced. Out in the blue, 40m down. Nothing around but other divers - and hopefully a hammerhead! I did 3 morning dives and saw 2 in the distance. Other groups more. Suggest you sit close to 30m for as long as you can. No Nitrox limits dive

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. Appreciate it very much and noted on the poor wifi and unfortunately is a via satellite and it is weak especially with many users due to the shared bandwidth around the region. We are constantly providing feedback to our local telco company on this matter. Thank you for diving with us and hope to see you again.

Hi! Peter, Thank you for your feedback at Trip Advisor. I have taken note of your feedback and will review this matter with my team. I apologised your trip to Layang Layang didnt meet your expectation. Yes the MASWING chartered aircraft broke down and the airline does not pay as it is usually covered by the passengers insurance hence we always recommend all our guest to purchase a dive and travel insurance when coming to Layang Layang or when travel. Therefore additional night stay and cost at the resort is chargeable and therafter to be claim thru the passengers insurance. Besides we charged very minimal to cover our cost only. Nevertheless we sincerely apologised for all the inconvenienced caused. Thank you.

Lets get the negative stuff out of the way first: 1) The island & the resort are remote - Don't expect a 5 Star resort experience. 2) The only reason you should be here is to dive (or be with someone who dives) - don't expect anything more than the diving! 3) The

Nice and professional diving guides, bring us to meet with hammerheads sharks in every dives in the morning! Rooms are comfortable but easily to hear noise from neighbors due to the wooden structure; would be better to retouch the toilet washbasin as cockroaches always come

"Ask for Deluxe room if you want a bit more comfort and quiet."
"All very close to the pool, dining and diving."
"Room 1102 and 1101 were very close to the diveshop and pool!"
"The deluxe room is worth the extra money. Good internet by sitting on the table closest to the main reception desk"
"You are here for the diving - enjoy it."
