We stayed in an VIP hut and the standard of accomodation was good. The hut was massive! We had always wanted to stay in a water village but the prices in places like the Maldives had put us off. It was nice to stay in a hut on stilts. However, Semporna is not a beautiful paradise it is a bit of a dirty old town! Interesting market -lots of great, cheap fruit. Bit of an strange edgy atmosphere in this place though. Handy and cheap place to stay if you are going to Sipidan.

Unique Qualities: Stay in a hut on stilts!

Price: US$80-120
Theme: Hotel
