Hotel Overview

Sipadan is simply legendary in diving circles, conjuring images of patrolling hammerhead sharks, millions of technicolored reef fish, swirling school of barracudas and jacks and above all, dozens of sea turtles swimming peacefully everywhere. 

This description is not far from reality: it might even actually be down played a little as Sipadan is considered one of the five top diving destinations in the world.  This small rainforest-covered tropical island rising from a 700 meter abyss in the Celebes Sea is a destination the committed diver cannot miss.

Pulau Sipadan Resort & Tours Sdn Bhd is one of the dive operators that are allowed to bring divers to Sipadan Island. Specializing in dive and nature tour packages to 3 notably top dive and nature resorts in Borneo; Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort, Lankayan Island Dive Resort and Sepilok Nature Resort as well as to  other Sabah’s wildlife destinations, we provide an ideal combination of the perfect Borneo holiday for those who seek fun and adventure among tranquil settings.

A few minutes by boat from the islands of Sipadan and Mabul but a full world  away from them lies the exhilarating Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort, sitting on its  sturdy stilts on the shallow sandbanks of the Ligitan Reefs. Planned and built in  full style as an airy, comfortable, sunny water village with no land in sight, it  boasts a mile-long sandbank of powdery white sand where one can suntan at  complete leisure while gazing out to the miles of brilliant turquoise stretching  into the horizon offering the purest image of natural serenity. 

Dive spots are extremely close and can be reached in just a few minutes by speedboat and some of them, actually,  just by swimming from the dive center pier. For those who are ready to explore more than the tiny marvels of  Kapalai’s macro life, can, in just a few minutes, dive in Sipadan (where big fish and turtles abound) or in Mabul  (where silky and muddy bottoms offer different and equally pleasant experiences and opportunities to the lovers of  "muck diving"). 

With a combination of sun and water in a unique and serene setting with friendly staff, Sipadan-Kapalai is an ideal  destination for diver and non diver alike seeking a great holiday experience! 

Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort is accessible through Semporna, Sabah Malaysia where our Pulau Sipadan Resort  and Tours jetty office is. Advance Booking is necessary to avoid any inconveniences. Booking can be made through the inquiry form in these sites.
