What we say: 4.5 stars

The latest addition to the Scuba Junkie empire is this 24-room beach resort on Mabul Island. There's something to suit all budgets, from fan-cooled dorms to spacious chalets, and we'd happily stay in any of them. The dorms are clean and comfortable with lots of bathrooms and the chalets have wooden interiors and luxurious king-size beds. Rates include three meals per day (no seafood – "fish are friends, not food") at the restaurant. Drinks from the bar are additional. The dive boat to Sipadan leaves ridiculously early so they can fit in four dives (600 ringgit for diving or snorkelling) and fun dives around Mabul cost 300 ringgit for three. Multi-day discounts are available. The resort also claims the best stretch of sand on Mabul as their private beach and has furnished it with lounge chairs. There is a 25 ringgit surcharge on all accommodation rates during the peak months of July/August.
