Great Island for relaxing

great location for relaxing. very good breakfast and very friendly staff
We had a great stay on this beautiful island. The rooms are very nice and clean. The bath rooms were a little oldish, but still very clean and functional. The breakfast was great, lots of fruit. The dinner was a bit less (portions unclear, service sometimes quite slow, not a very good price/quality ratio)

snorkel, location setting, services
Great for a few days of pure relaxation and snorkelling. Beautiful setting. Food pricing is reasonable, but room pricing is a bit steep.

Great place

Beautiful beach. Great food. Great pool.
our stay was too short but very relaxing and enjoyable. Lovely chalet, pool and beach. Great service. Sometimes the beach & water were too dirty - the staff need to try to stay on top of this.

Nice location, nice rooms, too many day trippers

Room quality. Beach. Location
Getting to the island was a bit a fiasco. The port is poorly managed, no signs and unhelpful staff. Boat journey felt dangerous and unsafe. Hotel staff very accommodating and lovely island. The rooms were much bigger than we expected and very comfortable. Lots of day trip visitors, who ignore staff about the private beach area. We had to take refuge at the pool daily to avoid the day trippers. Dining menu is very limited.

Good hide away.

Warm reception team, clean environment and the beach!
Overall, it was a very good stay in this hide away, nothing to complain except that the choice of food has to be more, as there is only one restaurant on this island. And the chef needs to be finer on his plates; we feel that some of the food can be rough and heavy.

Would return if I ever visit Sabah again

Room comfort, location, food
My friends and I spent a night at the Manukan Island Resort during the low season, so we did not encounter any issues with noise from the public visiting Manukan Island. It was as if we had the whole island to ourselves! (which was really great) The room was very spacious, comfortable and just right for the five of us (2 queen size beds with an additional mattress). Food was excellent and we enjoyed the free flow of fresh fruit juice prepared by the staff on the spot for us. We also had an excellent time at the beach and pool reserved for in-house guests. Overall, it was a very excellent stay and I definitely wish to return for another stay if I ever visit Sabah again. The only suggestion for improvement I would give is to upgrade the path leading towards the Sunset Point. Adding more lamp posts would definitely help visitors who are leaving the place late in the evening when it is already dark. The shelter at the Sunset Point also needs some repairing.
