Sipadan Water Village,always knowned as SWV. I went to stay there with a group of friends in June. I had a great time, and think this is one of the best resorts on Mabul Island. Mabul Island is a 20 min boat ride to Sipadan.
The dive centre was nice, and well organised, everyone had a locker to keep their equipment so that you wouldn't lose anything. And your dive tirps were planned by 3pm the day before the dives. Divemasters were very friendly, helpful and experinced, Enjoyed every dive. You can also enjoy a sunset and night dive for a small fee...
The rooms were lovely, with a beautiful balcony and sun deck over looking the sea. The room had a shower, which was quiet slow, but had hot water. The rooms had no air condition, only ceiling fans. But it doesn't bother you much since the scenery is to die for...
The food is ok/good buffet syle.. It wasn't bad... but it wasn't execellent either... Staff very friendly, and they had cultural dances on certain nights...
Lovely holiday getaway.
