This homestay was a very good base for going to Sipadan and exploring the Mabul island and snorkelling. We didn't dive with Sphere, so only reviewing the stay there. Firstly, the food is fantastic! It is also a buffet, so you can get more. Just amazing. The accommodation is simple, very clean and considering the rest of the island, very... More

We moved here after we left Uncle Chang´s, which is a horrible place. At Sphere Divers you get what you signed up for. It is a very clean and very lovely small accomodation. The food is delicious, the staff is super friendly and helpful and the view is amazing. We didn´t dive here, but the accomodation is definetely recommended!! Would... More

This place is an absolute gem! Ady and the staff were all amazing, and always made us feel so welcome. They even offered us free boat rides to the pier :) The living areas over the water are stunning, and perfect for lying in the hammock and watching turtles swim by all day and night. You won't find these views,... More

We spent five days staying at this wonderful homestay and diving with these folks. At first glance the property looks a bit rustic but the rough edges are more than compensated for by the wonderful things that happen while you stay there. The diving is absolutely world class. Nothing in my previous 140+ dives prepared me for the sights I'd... More

With the spheredivers you stay in a wooden Building, directly over the water.... a cool thing during hot days and a amazing location to watch the sunset! The rooms are nicely decorated and serve all basic needs. You get full bord menue and the food is really good, with lots of fish, chicken and vegetables, fruits....it is really tasty and... More

Underrated place, excellent staff & great hospitality. Food catered to your liking... our room was directly facing the sea... No complaints. Everything was perfect! Even though they didn't have wifi, but honestly you don't need it here. Stargazed every night. One night Mabul was raining shooting stars. AMAZING!!! Highly recommend!

Did my 5d4n Mabul dive trip with Spheredivers. Basic and clean room, nice and relaxing atmosphere, awesome view, real nice food, and super friendly, helpful and fun Spheredivers' crews. Will definitely go back for my next Mabul dive trip. Thumbs up for Spheredivers :)

I took my open water diving licence here! The instructors there were very experience, showing us beautiful dive site. Their eyes were bionic, as they can point out the sea creature that were perfectly camouflage with the surrounding. We had a great time getting to know mother nature and take a break from city life. This place is very relaxing... More

We where there with my in-laws and husband, we all really enjoyed it, as non divers. Be sure to call before hand, the numbers on the website aren't always working, so these are the other numbers to call Ady 0145561666, he is the owner, and May 0163287296, she is a dive instructor!

“Rooms along the sundeck tend to bake a little in the day. Ask for rooms along the inside of the homestay for cooler rooms.”
