Information

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 not to disturb the existing reef. So, not only is it exotic and beautiful, its building materials, design and layout are all in harmony with its surroundings.

A wooden sidewalk connects all of the 45 bungalows, dive shop, lobby and restaurant. The sidewalk is beautifully adorned with palm trees, bougainvillaea and hibiscus, and beneath, it is a natural aquarium full of corals and reef creatures. Sipadan may be one of the most famous dive destinations in the world. People have been diving at Sipadan since 1983, and it has undergone significant changes over the years, but the diving remains spectacular. In 2004, the Malaysian Government took drastic measures to protect the reefs and marine life around Sipadan. They removed all the resorts from the island! The resorts that were on the island had to relocate, which had an immediate positive impact on the ecosystem.

In 2006, the Malaysian Government went one step further and began to limit the number of divers that are allowed to dive Sipadan on any given day. They started a permit system where each resort is allocated a certain number of permits, and the resort distributes them at their discretion. Sipadan Water Village has always done the best job of managing their permits. Divers at Sipadan Water Village have not been disappointed with the amount of diving they have done at Sipadan. This is due to the way Sipadan Water Village has managed its permits and their continued commitment to their guests.
