We really enjoyed our stay there, clear blue water, basic but nice chalet, the staff were so friendly and they really made an effort to make you feel like home. The only thing that bothered us was the bugs, because the jungle is right behind so it's hard to avoid. If you are into nature, love to wake up with...

Our stay on Sibu island what all that we expected and then some. The pickup at the Tanjong Leman jetty sets you right in lonely island mood while you cruise toward that green elevation in a small motor boat.
