Extremely helpful staff who had the place running like clockwork. Everything was very well organised and you knew where you had to be at what time. Unfortunately I wasn't there for long enough to get a Sipidan permit but I will be back for sure. The rooms are bright, specious and comfortable. Range and quality of food is excellent. My...

Had a great time here on a 5d4n trip. The diving at Sipidan was awesome, the staff were friendly and professional (Lan, Armstrong and Eto all top instructors and super clear and safe) and the food was good. At the resort, they've thought of everything to ensure a perfect diving holiday: swimming pool, beach bar, easy to hire gear and...

This place is ace! Some of the communications in the build up to the holiday were a little scarce. However from the moment we were picked up in Semporna for our transfer, our boat ride over, the breakfasts, Lunches and dinners, the dives, the dive masters, the staff, the cleaning staff- you could not fault it. Everyone is warm and...

Just did the 5D/4N package to guarantee at least one day on Sipadan. We were lucky because the resort was not very full so we were able to dive 3 days on Sipadan. Friendly and good divemasters. Rooms OK (better ones facing the sun are from number 120 up), food average but fine. You only really come for the diving...

Myself my friend and my 5 year old came here for the 5D4N package. Well what a brilliant well organised set up, from being picked up at Tawau airport to organising the Sipidan permits, amazing food and the staff are cheerful and accommodating. This is the place to come if you have kids due to the pool

Borneo Divers did a great job accommodating us and our 5 month infant! Everyone was super nice. We rented an extra cabin for our nanny and her friend and they were resonable about their prices. They got us the permits to go to sipidan islands and it was some amazing diving! But we also dove in a close by spot...

Fabulous staff who bend over backwards to make your experience supreme1 Best recommendation for diving for my clients. Rooms are clean, aircon works, bathrooms need some attention, but the hospitality more than makes up for it.

I am a snorkeler and I decided to make a present to my husband. Sipadan should be one of the world’s best diving destinations. I decided to book a package of 5 days/4 nights with Borneo Divers on Mabul island because I was sure that he will have at least one-day dive (with 4 dives) on Sipadan. When I booked...

We stayed next door at Scuba Junkie but spent a lot of time at the beach bar of Borneo Divers and had a great time! They were always very friendly and had great western comfort food. We ended up getting Sipadan passes and had an unforgettable day diving with the dive master Scott. He was very professional and took us...
