Sipadan Water Village Resort

No matter where you look – it’s like dessert for your eyes!

Sipadan Water Village is that resort you see in the magazines and wish you could visit! Each room is an individual bungalow and the entire resort is built over the water. The whole resort is built in traditional Bajau architecture and uses Belian wood from Borneo. The layout of the resort was carefully chosen as to not disturb that existing reef. So, not only is it exotic and beautiful, it’s building materials, design and layout are all in harmony with its surroundings.

All of the bungalows, dive shop, lobby and restaurant are connected by a wooden sidewalk. The sidewalk is beautifully adorned with palm trees, bougainvillea and hibiscus and beneath it is a natural aquarium full of corals and reef creatures.

Sipadan Water Village has 4 types of bungalows. There are a total of 45 bungalows. They are –

  • Junior Cottage

    There is another room with a rack for the wetsuits (again, with your wetsuit on a hanger with your number on it). And, each person is assigned a “cubby hole” to store your personal gear (mask, fins, computer, etc.). Each cubby hole has a lock on it so you can secure your belongings.

    Tanks are available throughout the day for shore diving. Towels are provided in the dive shop so you don’t need to bring a towel from your room. There is hot drinking water for tea, coffee or hot chocolate. There cold drinking water. And, snacks are available during the afternoon. There a lots of large picnic tables so there’s plenty of space to work on cameras between dives or just relax. A library of fish identification books are available so that you can learn more about the critters you see on your dives.

    There are also 4 “camera rooms” at the dive shop. These rooms can be rented and are great for storing your cameras overnight and between dives so that you don’t have to carry them to your room. They are equipped with 110V outlets. The rooms are small as they are only intended for storage and charging. Several people can easily share a room.

    One of the best features of the dive shop is the Dive Board. There is a huge white board that shows you where you are diving, what boat you are on, the divemasters on your boat and the other people on your boat. This board is updated each afternoon so you can prepare for the next days dives. You know what time your boat is departing for each dive and the area you are going to. You can prepare your camera in advance to take advantage of the spectacular photo opportunities that await you!
