We went there with a couple of friends for a 4 days 3 nights stay and dove 8 times altogether. The diving was great although the visibility was limited and I would jave expected more from sipadan but more than the diving experience, it is for the all ex oil rig/ service experience that I strongly recommend this place.

We traveled as a group of 5 adults, 2 kids. All the adults were divers, kids were snorkelers. Hotel ambience: the most unusual we had been to. It's a rig in the middle of the sea, converted to a hotel! It is not a luxury resort, but divers will appreciate the process oriented approach to all the dive planning. No...

The rig is close to excellent diving and is a very professional dive operation and accomodation center. Being a rig the rooms aren't spacious but they are clean and the beds are comfortable - always a bonus in Asia. The meals are buffet style and were always varied and tasty. The rig also had nice extras such as cake being...

Room was a little shabby with salty showers. Some hidden expenses via dive sites fees (other than sipadan) which you kind of have to pay. Just include all fees in the price, everyone wants to dive sipadan anyway. Otherwise all one could ask for when diving sipadan. Very nice and friendly crew.

Fantastic sunsets and awesome crew to look after you.
