We planned to spend a nice diving weekend in this resort. Arriving in our little bungalow we recognised already that the bathroom has obviously been cleaned only superficially for weeks. We asked three times for the houskeeping. But all what they did, was changing the towels and sweeping up the sand. Same with the rooms. Sheets were clean, but having...

I was skeptical about heading to this resort after reading reviews back to back (not good ones) but I've been here before 11 yrs back and i loved it and I was curious to see if there are any changes made. Went there with a heavy heart and thank god, i wasnt disappointed. We had the deluxe room and it...

Poor food, lazy service and dirty rooms. The location is picturesque: wonderful beaches, use of sea kayaks and great views. The 'resort' is poorly maintained - rotten stairs to cabin, moudly bathroom, smelly rooms, dirty common toilets. Ok but not great. You can do better if you book ahead

Great for company outings, or for family weekend getaway. Facilities are well organize, maintained, and acceptable service. Would suggest improvement on the cleanliness details, we stayed in Serendit Suit- if you check corners, under d furnitures, side of chair cushions- there are visible dust collected... and some trash from previous occupant. These are negligible though, but if they improved on...

Overall a mixed review with positives and negatives (detailed below), but on the whole it was a basic getaway with fun to be had from nature: snorkelling, kayaking, lazing on the beach. The resort is not particularly well maintained. The resort has a strange design in that the pool, restaurant, and most of the villas don’t overlook the picturesque ocean....

Love beach 1 (good for swimming) and 2 (good for snorkeling). Had many activities that is free or chargeable such as island hopping, snorkeling, archery, firefox, tennis and banana boat rides!...

Sibu Island Resort The distance and relatively remote location  is the secret to the exclusiveness and unique features of this resort. From the road trip leading to the Leman Cape jetty where it is unexpectedly a very nicely architectured building with a safe parking area to the short ferry ride to the island makes the first good impression. Upon arrival the...

Ferry left 30mins early from Tanjung Lemang, guess because so many visitors. The rooms are nice, better on the northern side with views of best beach (No 2).

“upper level in two story buildings as ground floor can have small and big visitors from lush vegetation starting right behind the rooms, nothing unusual but not everybody's cup of tea. Killing fields (fogging) brought an array of crawling visitors fleeing into the guest rooms, the zoo comes right to you!”
