The best pool on Mabul
If you can stretch your budget to 765 ringgit per day including three dives, Borneo Divers should be on your shortlist.
Guests stay in wooden chalets surrounded by gardens and enjoy creature comforts like soft beds, air-con and hot showers. Mealtime is a treat with a variety of Malaysian curries and fresh seafood included. Facilities include a computer corner with free WiFi, TV lounge and massages in beachside cabanas. The resort claims Mabul's best stretch of white sand as its private beach and has the best swimming pool on the island. The dive centre is very professional and can guarantee a Sipadan permit if you stay for four nights or longer. Diving rates include three boat dives per day, unlimited dives on the house reef and return transport from Tawau airport. It's worth emailing them to ask about multi-night promotions.
