It's nice for short weekend getaway. Rate for renting scuba gear is as per day rate. Food provided buffet style and been served based on the schedule. Have a nice experience with the dive master Robin. He is a bit strict but good for diving training.

Paid around 1.6k per person to get everything excluded transportation on land, stay for 4d3n (14-18 Sept) in Quad room shared with dive buddies. The room was clean, friendly dive master Hsien and instructors- Nick Khoo and Lea Ming. They are really experienced instructors and willing to share lots of knowledge. Total 7 dives and the marine life was amazing!!!... More

Realy expensive but less service and unfriendly stuff! Also the room is very basic even if you booked the standard room. The food is nothing special but okay. We booked a packet like 3 days and 2 night ( actually just 2 days and 2 nights because of the 8:30 check out!!) With 5 dives. For that we payed 2000... More

I would give 5 stars to the diving but the overall experience could be improved so easily if the resort.upped its game a little. The food is ok but they (unlike every other resort we've visited) make no attempt to keep it warm. So eat it is first served or put up with cold concealing food. The beds were comfortable,the...

Came here for the first time in 2009, and back again in March 2016 Cleaned up a little and build some new chalets since then - for what you pay, you get pretty alright food, and gas heated showers! Tenggol itself is a nice quiet stretch of beach with only SO many resorts and gorgeous white sands - but *do*... More

Good food, decent rooms. Standard expectation for dive resorts on the east coast of malaysia. Insect repellents are a top priority due to the popular sandflies around the resort area. Spotted an adult male Whale Shark at five sisters dive site.

We travelled in couple, who are still very new to the scuba diving, with fairly about 20 dives experiences. Robin, the dive guide, were unprofessional in may ways. Firstly, no briefing prior to every dives. Second, he did not put our safety in top priority, almost every dives he brought us to as deep as 30m, even he knew that... More

Dives - my friends and I spent 4D3N with them and did 7-8 dives with our dive guide Robin. Compare to tioman, the viz was good, definitely no crowds and no fishing boat, in a way it's relatively safer for beginners and for those want to do Open Water. A lot of good dive sites just round the corner of... More
