During my first trip to Sipadan, accommodations were confined to Sipadan island (now you can't stay there anymore) and Mabul island. There were 2 resorts in Mabul, one beach resort and Sipadan Water Village which consists of water bungalows. At that time Kapalai was not even developed (neither were digital cameras)!

It's a resort beautifully constructed with Bajau architectural design. Part of the Mabul Island is also home to groups of Bajau fishermen who have built their traditional palm thatched houses. The Bajau Laut, the world's only tribe of nomadic sea gypsies spends their lives on the water.

For divers, expect to pay US$295 per person for full board, diving and transfers (3D/2N). All arrangements should be made during booking.

Unique Qualities: - Water bungalows with huge sundecks that open out to the sea
- Best food in Sipadan, Mabul and Kapalai
- Wonderful snorkelling just below all the water bungalows. You can just jump right in.
