Paradise on earth! May 06, 2011
I have now been to Kapalai Resort four times, and I'm definitely going back!

It is a dive resort, so don't expect to much other things to do, but if you are a keen diver or just want to relax this is one of the best places there are! And if you want to see marine life without even getting wet you just have to sit down on your balcony and wait for the turtles, rays, lion fishes and bat fishes to come to you!

I have tried all the seasons now, and I think October was the best one! Might just have been due to the weather, but

Sipadan Kapalai Dive Resort Nov 13, 2009
This resort is awesome. Like a dream come true. From the main island of borneo... it took us about 40 minutes speed boat ride to the island. If it is high tide the sand cannot be seen at all!

The resort are wooden build on an island that is more like of an atoll. The resort has a common dining hall for all guests. The food is buffet style. Mix of asian and western dish and finger foods. Generally this resort is for diving, snorkelling and can be a place for wedding ceremonies as well.

The room cottages or chalet are scattered along the island. Our room is room 45 which is about 10 minutes walk from the dining hall. The room is great! Clean, the bed are very good. There is no air-con but only fan, but who needs air-con in the middle of the sea/island?!. The breeze is very nice and very relaxing. Every room has fridge and water heater, coffee provided and cups. Toilet is attached and is very nice. Toilet comes with bathtub, next to the window, which is when you open is the sea!. The lightings are nicely placed to make the room look more cosy.

Near the dining hall is one dive site, usually for sunset and/ or night dive. All crew are very warm, helpful, and will cater to whatever they can provide the guests.

This place is absolutely paradise! That one must visit!
