Billabong Scuba Homestay
Something for all budgets
What we say:
They've kept the "homestay" in the name, but Billabong now has a full range of accommodation, from basic fan rooms in their wooden longhouse to swish air-con chalets on stilts above the water. It's staffed by a friendly Malay family who cook the meals (which are better than average) plus a mix of Malay and Western dive masters. Their diving rates are some of the lowest around, like 400 ringgit for a daytrip to Sipadan or 980 ringgit for PADI Open Water, including two nights' room and board, and they're a good source for last-minute Sipadan permits. WiFi is available when the electricity is on (which is most of the day and all night) and there's a small library. They reply promptly to emails and have a small office in Semporna behind the Sipidan Inn. The following prices are for divers. Non-divers pay an additional 100 ringgit the first night, then the same price as divers.
