Kapalai Sipadan Dive Resort, Semporna Archipelago
Borneo, Borneo (Sabah)

Info : Kapalai Sipadan Dive Resort

With no land in sight and surrounded by azure water, a stay at Kapalai Sipadan Diver Resort is certainly an experience. It’s ideal for divers, couples looking for an unusual beach alternative and families with older children looking for a unique place to stay.

Rising up out of the ocean on well-built wooden supports, the resort is a sight to behold. It is reminiscent of a sea gypsy village although this is much more luxurious. There is a mile-long white sandbank where one can relax in leisure whilst gazing out at the sea. Sightings of turtles have been reported from guests’ balconies, this place gives the Maldives a run for its money! 

The diving spots around the resort are incredibly close and can be reached by a short speedboat ride. There is also great snorkelling by the resort’s pier. 

The resort restaurant serves good food although don’t expect Michelin starred cuisine. The wifi is also intermittent so don’t rely on using it, in a way though the resort works as a digital detox.

This is a beautiful and unusual resort with some of the best diving and snorkelling opportunities on the east coast of Borneo. 


Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.
