The best resort on the island by far! I went with a group that used Best Scuba Tours, and I felt we were catered to well. All the rooms are clean and large, and the grounds well maintained. The diving was great!! The staff was half that reason!! I had a chance to walk around the island and look at...

This island is a paradise. The location is perfect 50 minutes from Semporna jetty. The resort come pick you and send you back at Semporna or at Tawau airport ( there is flight everyday at least from Kota Kinabalu and sandakan). The snorkeling in front of the hotel is really amazing, from the jetty you can see many kinds of...

What a lovely place to spend a few days. Beautiful beaches and water, spacious chalet accommodation, no mosquitos!!, and staff who could not do more to help or make sure we enjoyed our stay. This is not a 5star resort, but it was very well kept and had all the facilities we needed. We had wonderful treatments (massage and reflexology)...

The location of the resort is picturesque and remote, so it offers a relaxing time away from it all. The staff are very helpful and nothing seems too difficult for them to sort. The biggest issue with the resort is the food..it's very limited and tasteless. There is very little variety in terms of flavouring and most things are dripping...

This is NOT a luxury resort. However, I would give a qualified recommendation about this place. The island itself is amazing. The price tag reflects the fact that you are 1 hour away by boat from the main island and the place is out of this world. AND this is one of the few islands that are not just a...

1. Scenery: The scenery is amazing. The moment when we landed on the island, we were all out of breah. The crystal transparent ocean, the clear blue sky, yellow bright sunshine, sugar white sand, etc. It is an idea place for swimming and snorkeling, enjoying the sunbath peacefully, or just simply reading a book. 2. Room: We chose beach villa....

We just completed a four night stay at the Pom Pom Resort and concur with others who think the location in the middle of a marine wilderness is drop dead fabulous, the bungalows are wonderful, and the staff very caring and friendly. However, we as we paid $350 USD per night to stay there, we had hoped for a little...

We stayed at Pom Pom three nights for our honeymoon. The beach and location was exceeding all our expectations, so beautiful! We stayed in a beach villa which was great because the snorkeling was just a few meters from of our veranda. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I have read that people are not completely satisfied with the...

Paradise does exist! Wonderful hotel, very calm and peaceful. Simple food but good. Simple service but full of smile. Nice little houses on the beach. Very cleaned beaches compared to other hotels in the area. Try the Signature Massage with the ying yang spa's team. Agnes who made this massage for me was incredible! A lot of baby turtles releases...
