We were lucky to have an opportunity to travel cross state to spend our Christmas at Sea Gypsy. It was simply a magical family break. The thought and care that the team put in was awesome. There was everything. Silly games, boozy afternoon tea, Santa visiting, treasure hunts, hikes, great food and all in a relaxed family environment. Richard and the team did an awesome job and my boys enjoyed it as always. The behind the scenes tour of the resort was really eye opening, the environmental credentials and hard work to make use of, and reuse resources was brilliant to see in action. We were worried about the east coast monsoon weather, but basked in beautiful sunshine with a gentle tropical breeze. We will be back! This is my favourite resort in Malaysia.

My friends and I (4 of us) had a last minute booking to celebrate my birthday since our initial plan to Sabah had to be postponed to next year due to covid cases that's emerging in Sabah. Our jaw dropped when we arrived, looking at the beautiful long private beach and it's pristine clear blue greenish water. The surrounding areas are so clean, calm and well maintained. We witnessed beautiful sunrise, in between 6am to 7am. Our food throughout our stay were delicious. We were lucky enough to meet Linda, the owner of the resort. She was so kind she even surprised me with a birthday cake and they sang me birthday song. All the staff are so friendly and well trained. We all had personalised touch and we definitely remember each of the staff who took care of us. Appreciation goes to Irene, Ben and Boy for helping us with DSD, paddleboarding and snorkeling with sunset view. To Azwan and Mamat our boatmen that has always keep us safe. Alan and Maddy served us the best food and drink all the time. Charlie cute lil angel that keep us company during our sunset view. We had an awesome time throughout our stay and definitely would want to come back again. The hospitality was top notch and it was one of a kind personalised service excellence, consistently exceed our expectations from day 1. I have gone around telling all my family and friends about Sea Gypsy giving my 5 stars recommendation. They are all impressed and looking forward to their next trip to Sea Gypsy. I really do hope to see you again Sea Gypsy 😊

Stumbled upon this resort because a friend stayed there few weeks ago. Since my friends and I wanted to go on another beach getaway, we decided to give it a go. Didn't check much on their site until the very last minute. Initially was worried about not having hot shower & internet while my friends were worried about the lack of a/c. But I must say, this place did not disappoint. From the moment we have stepped onto the jetty area until the time we needed to leave the resort, felt very welcomed by the owner - Richard. He picked us up and send us back to the jetty area. The package comes with full board meals and you just need to get ready and go to the dining area during meal times. Since there were arouhd 30 of us, all the meals were served buffet style. The food were delicious. Personal favorite is the Grilled Chicken Rice Served on our last day. The lack of connectivity was compensated by a full list of available activities that will keep you busy and forget about your phone for a while. We did snorkeling at Pulau Besar (powdery white sand), diving (great visibility and healthy corals too), trekking to a small waterfall at Pulau Tinggi and just chilled on the beach. They also have paddleboard, tree climbing, archery and others. Overall, after 4 days and 3 nights, we were not ready to leave the island. Awesome staff (Boi, Ben, Jai, Ate Mari). Great Food. Rustic Place. I highly recommend this place if you wanted to get away from city life. Disconnect from your gadgets. This is the place to visit. Hopefully, we can visit again soon. ❤

This amazing little gem is just a short boat ride East of Johor but feels like a continent away from the hustle & bustle of the mainland. The place is family owned and feels really like you're invited into someone's home. The service feels intimate (like you are visiting friends) but not imposing. The resort and the huts are basic done really well. And best thing of all, it's dog friendly! It's not for you if you're after a big 5-star commercial resort, but if you're up for a truly amazing city getaway, where you have no wifi (barely any phone connection), no meal decisions to make (all meals are included), just a beautiful beach, friendly people, cold drinks and no worries in the world, well this is the place. Don't hesitate, just book it and go.

Excellent place to stay either with friends or with your family. The owners of the place are very lovely, helpful and always in for a drink at the bar ! ;) We can't recommend this place enough. Relax on the beach, go to Simba Resort beach to snorkel, have some fun dives (thanks Irene) ! The whole experience was great :D
