SMART - Sipadan Mabul Resort: luxurious but also basic accommodation
This resort is designed for divers - you'll get a package of accommodation, all meals/drinks (non-alcoholic), up to 3 dives a day. But I think you can also book it as a non-diver (with a certain discount on the price). However, there's not much to do if you're not diving.
In between dives, it's great to relax around the pool, have a massage or sit in the jacuzzi.
Every day, it is defined if dives are done around Sipadan or Mabul/Kapalai. When diving Sipadan, you stay there for lunch and come back in the afternoon. When diving the fantastic muck places around Mabul and Kapalai, you normally return after every dive.
However, this might have changed since 1999.
bungalows, pool with sunbeds, heated jacuzzi, white beach with palm trees
