Sipadan Water Village Resort

Sipadan Water Village is beautifully constructed with Bajau architectural design and is completely built over water on stilts. Part of the Mabul Island, this is home to groups of Bajau fishermen who have built their traditional palm thatched houses on the waterfront. The world's only tribe of nomadic sea gypsies, Bajau Laut, spend their lives on the water and are transitioning from sea nomadic to sedentary village in Mabul. This overwater village is on a protected part of the island with 45 comfortable water chalets along a flowered sidewalk and connected to Mabul Island by a long wooden pier.  Just a few feet above the calm waters of the Celebes Sea, the spacious chalets have wide sliding doors that open onto your own private deck with sea or island views. Every cottage is oceanfront so you can feel the gentle breeze blowing across your private terrace. The Grand Deluxe and Deluxe Chalets are truly outstanding if you want the best in comfort, space and privacy. The Standard Chalets are the best value for money and can accommodate 2 or 3 people. All rooms have either king size bed or twin beds, tea/coffee maker, private bathrooms with tub and hot/cold showers, toiletries, ceiling fans, mini bar and 24 hour electricity.  The central lounge area has a large open air bar with Wifi, reception area and restaurant which prepares both Asian and Continental cuisine.

The 5-star PADI Dive Center is equipped with custom-built fiber glass dive boats that carry 12 passengers each. Each boat goes out 3 trips daily accompanied by a boatman and a Dive Master. The marine life found around Mabul Island varies greatly from that of Sipadan Island, so the combination of the two islands for diving makes for a complete dive experience. Mabul and Kapalai is heaven for studying the micro aspects of marine life and guarantees hours of fascinating fish watching with ample opportunities for photography. At world-renowned Sipadan Island just 20 minutes away, you’ll get different experience diving among the giants of sea. Snorkeling and kayaking is also available here. You may also hit the white sandy beaches of Mabul and visit the local fishing villages.
