The water and the island itself are beautiful, as are the villas. Some of the international (definitely not the Malay staff) staff however do not know how to treat guests. We had never dived before. Upon arrival we were offered a free introductory dive to see whether we liked it. We thought this was an opportunity we could not refuse...

I think that Pom Pom island resort is a nice place to be if you want a relaxing get-away or just to spend time with family and friends. Snorkeling in the early morning or late evening as the sun is not so hot, is just the experience of a life time, maybe swim with a few turtles along the way....

Pom Pom island is a wonderful place, and I would recommend it without question to any of my friends. And strangers for that matter. As keen divers, we have spent time at a number of different islands and resorts. This holiday was a return to the Celebes Sea, and we selected Pom Pom based partly on its good reviews and...

I've never been a fan of all-inclusive resorts as they either turned out to be a bit on the snobby side or plain chavish. Pom Pom has however managed to be attentive, but relaxed, elegant but unpretentious. Resort was built in 2009 and only started advertising in 2010. We were there the week after xmas 2010. They picked us up...

We are non divers and came here for snorkerlling. We have been to almost all the island resorts in West Malaysia and this is the first time we came to here with much expectation. We were here for 3D2N. We find the breakfast below expectation. Surprisingly, there was no cheese, and yet most of the guests were Europeans. Lunch and...
