What we say: 4.5 stars

If your ideal holiday is eat, sleep, dive then this is the place for you. Seaventures occupies a renovated oil rig in the middle of the sea, so diving is literally all there is to do. The cabin rooms are compact with two single or one queen bed and ensuite bathroom, but there's a large sundeck, games room and movie lounge for relaxing between dives. The dive staff are phenomenal and offer fun diving and dozens of PADI specialty courses. The full-board package for divers includes roundtrip transport from Tawau Airport, three delicious meals per day, three boat dives per day and unlimited dives at the house reef right below the rig. The minimum stay is three nights and a Sipadan permit is guaranteed for divers. Seaventures is not cheap, but consider it a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
