Very helpful staff, basic and clean accommodation. The ideal place to stay if you love snorkelling or diving and don't have the budget for the resorts. Located on stilts above the crystal clear waters of Mabul island, you will see tropical fish from the deck and maybe even a turtle. Loved it!

Looking on a whim for somewhere to dive over a busy bank holiday weekend at less than cut-throat prices, I managed to find Spheredivers on a Sipadan diving website. One cool 10-minute convo later with their agent, Benjamin, on the KL-side, I had the invoice in my inbox, a room booked and the promise that a car would be waiting...

A truly authentic experience. My single room had a lovely little window and view. The bathroom facilities were adequate for the number of guests and the dive set up with showers, gear storage etc was very good. Staff were friendly and obliging and tried hard to accommodate me even though I was not on a dive package. The 3 meals...

I was here 'accidentally' during a snorkeling daytrip with Sphere Diver boatman last Friday. It was raining heavily by the time we arrived Mabul & Stanley was generous enough to offer us a temporary shelter under his humble lodge. My son decided to take DSD crash course & so we stay. Luckily for us, the place wasn't overcrowded with people...

I've stayed at many of the other resorts around Sipadan (Kapalai/ SMART) but never a home stay in this area. I didn't expect very much and was pleasantly surprised by the relaxing and homely feel to the place. I spent 4 days there with another person from Australia, we did 8 dives. What I enjoyed most about Spheredivers: the friendly...
