When you arrive, by the boat, from Semporna, at the jetty of the resort, your eyes don't know where to go... The blue sky (it's a place where the good weather is guaranteed the whole year, no monsoon), the white sand or the translucid water. It's just breathtaking. It's really cool. The rooms (villas) are comfortables, recents, air-conditionned and very...

First of all, I would like to differentiate between the island itself and the resort. as for the island, it is amazing, full of all marine life you can imagine. We are not divers but we managed to see an uncountable number of fish species just snorkeling or simply from our bungalow. We stayed at an overwater bungalow which was...

My wife and I stayed at Pom Pom for four nights and were very happy with the idyllic location and our beautiful (if slightly run down) beachfront villa. We were more than happy with the service that we received but had the following issues: 1. The food was very Chinese orientated, with very little Malaysian food, to cater for the...

Possibly one of prettiest places that I have been to - a paradise island in the middle of a sea, surrounded with sapphire waters and coral reefs. White sandy beaches, palm trees and amazing weather. Nothing to add.. Resort is very comfortable - we had beach villa with nearly whole beach to us (may - very little turists). Villa is...

The island is beautiful, you will be making the perfect pictures. There are 3 different types of bungalows on the island. On the water, beachfront and garden villas. The...

We were 4 friends and in the beginning we were a little hesitant as it was clearly a resort for mainly Chinese people, but we have been super happy to have chosen this island. The resort itself is really well kept, bungalows (we got the garden villa) are clean, large and comfortable, beach is really beautiful and you can swim...

I took 8 people to travel with me to this resort for two nights. Overall, it's a nice place and it was cleaner than I expected. However, I had the worst service ever. The girl who received us was a young unprofessional one. Very impatient. I was a bit surprised at her attitude and wondered why. Later, when I asked...
