    Glammed camping, staff is the best!”

    Sleeping in tents with bed! Waking up to. Chirping birds and sound of water surrounding mangroves. If you want to see turtle hatchlings without the hassle of other tourist crowds then book walai penyu resort. I liked having pleasant conversations with the staff from trekker's lodge and the honorary warden. Food is fantastic! Please bring mosquito repellent and portable fans as it can be warm in the tent at night. If you have a great sense of adventure the rain in the island at night or early morning can be a good experience. Peaceful vacation! Also recommends hiking towards the village in the island. :) Kudos to the staff here! Cheers!

    This island is really wellcoming, much cheaper than sellingan turtle island and not commercialized.Price includes tent accomodation and meals and ferry.We got to release about 12 turtles back into the sea which is a highlight.Another feature we were the only travellers on the island and it is also patrolled by police with weapons, highly recommend.Take a pack of cards or board games for pleasure.Tiger beers 10 ringitts

    Accurate description of Camp Site rather than a Resort. Fantastic efforts managing the release of turtles while allowing tourists to also view the process. A wonderful wild place. Yes camping. Take snacks. Take sunblock, mossie repellant, drinks, portable fan if possible......tents are comfortable but VERY hot. Loved the experience

    本想帶孩子看海龜生蛋,但非常失望,等了一整晚也没有海龜上岸,放小海龜成班人也只有三隻,不可觸碰,只可望負責人放,失望...酒店人員禮貌,但住在營地日間非常熱,晚上有風扇下還可以,但成家要住兩個營,三千多,看不到海龜,絕對不值!

    酒店就坐落在Libaran Island~Sandakan附近有名的海龟岛、住宿机构隶属于非盈利海龟保育基地~负责本岛海龟的繁殖保护、给海龟营造一个适合繁衍的环境、并对海龟蛋收集、人工保护、天然孵化、放归!经历了十几年、终于和岛民、政府达成共识、拒绝食用、贩卖海龟及海龟蛋! 🐢酒店会有工作人员陪同、带你去参观雨林、当地的村落、路上能看到大蜥蜴、寄居蟹等很多小动物、孩子可以学到海龟保育知识参与海龟放归、因为不是繁殖期、当晚并没有海龟上岸产卵!期待下一次的相遇! P.s:上岛需大船转小船、走滩涂、住帐篷、洗凉水澡、无超市、无网络!但需要这样的亲子时光!赞👍

    保护海龟,还需要更多努力”

    这个度假村由大概10顶帐篷、一个海边餐厅和海龟孵育场组成。我们去的那天傍晚带着宝宝放生了小海龟,看着他们游向大海,这是最美好的时刻。餐厅的美食可口,服务人员很赞。晚上等待海龟上岸,可惜没有等到。帐篷很好,只是没有蚊帐和风扇,周围免不了有小昆虫。至于浮潜,海滩很浅,也没啥看的,可以忽略不提。从码头到海岛的来回船费320RM,由游客负担,没有想通这点。这是一个保护海龟的公益项目,很敬佩岛上工作人员为此所做出的努力,应当想法让更多人知道这个海岛,一起支持和保护海龟。
