Enjoy our stay here”

We book 2 chalet for 2 nights for our group vacation. Since we rented a car the location was not a problem for us. The view of the resort was beautiful. The staff was very accomodating to our request.. The chalets were spacious and cosy. Water supply was disrupted due to the drought season but staff informed us that only certain hours during the day that our water supply will be cut off. In the mean time, we were free to use the sharing bathroom nearby. There is a restaurant at the premise but we mostly dine out at Semporna town.

We even saw a couple doing their wedding photoshoot there. During our stay, there was a disruption of water supply which was understandable due to drought season. But we were can use the bathroom at Tiger Lodge when the water to the Chalet were off for certain hours. Also the chalets were very cosy.

Shocking customer service”

After checking in, we discovered that the security grille was not locked. Requested office to look into it, and they sent housekeeping, who didn't have a key and just shrugged their shoulders - ended not being locked (and there was no safe to lock belongings in). Wanted to go into Semporna with their transport originally at 8:30, were told that the driver wasn't around until 10:00, so could we go then. Accepted this, only for the driver to arrive 45 minutes late. When booking a car to the airport, we asked to leave at 06:00am, which was met by annoyance that "I'll have to get out of bed". When the car did arrive just after 06:00, the driver wanted 4 passengers as arranged but the other two had cancelled, and the staff hadn't let each other know. The driver was then upset as he wasn't getting as much money as he wanted, which was again met with a shrug of the shoulders from the Scuba Tiger staff. Due to the lack of passengers, the driver stopped at the roadside to pick another passenger up half way to the airport. All in all, the customer service is shocking. It was a good hour by fast boat to Mabul (and another 30 to Sipadan) so if you're wanting to go dive Sipadan take into account it might be a very long day from here.

We just stayed one night here just to get the feeling of kampung(countryside). Managed to catch a sunset and sunrise here. Overall if u have a handsome pocket, go for the high end room that this resort offers. It would worth every penny with the astonishing view u get here.

Acceptable”

We were not happy by the facilities as it was dirty and smelly in our chalet. There were dead bugs by the window pane and were not even cleaned after we asked for housekeeping. We were not briefed properly by the reception. They gave us the key to our room and that was that. We didn’t receive smiles from them. The thing we were happy about was the location of the resort and the New Taste restaurant. The workers of the restaurant were so friendly and helpful to us. Always smiling and greeted us every time we passed by. They also make good food at very reasonable price for such a location. We will definitely consider coming for the restaurant and the workers at the restaurant. Hopefully the resort itself will improve their services quality and cleanliness. Shame for such a nice place not being taken care of properly.

Stayed in the dorm which was very nice, ran, and private. At the time of our stay my friend and I shared the space alone. Resort is clean and everything looks brand new. Restaurants close by. Location is out of the way and far from town. We liked this but it may not be for everyone. Staff was nice to arrange a last minute jetty dive for us - we didn't plan to dive but couldn't go a day without diving! Staff made arrangements for airport transfer for my friend and took me to the bus station. Nice and helpful.

do not go here!!!”

Terrible stay! too expensive for what you get. the beach is not nice, staff is not helpful, no Wi-Fi, the restaurant was closed I dont know why and the breakfast was amazingly awful. Our room had no windows inside a house with a lot of others rooms with no windows, people smoking inside and very unhealthy. Felt like a prison, no fresh air and now Im sick because of that. The shared bathroom had a water pump inside, that makes a deafening noise all day and all night. All and all, the worst place I've ever been for the money I've spent. Choose a cheap hotel or a hostel in Semporna that you'll be happier. I would never go back here and even thinking about my stay makes me cringe about the money I've spent. The rating of this place is not real, probably made by some bots. Again, do not go here by any chance. And watch out for the monkeys, they steal your food and they bite, even the staff is afraid of them. Resort should be a word used for actual resorts.
