Borneo Divers Mabul Resort



An Introduction to Malaysia


Borneo Divers Mabul Dive Resort occupies a beautiful streach of white sandy beach, and its easy access to the water provides for effortless shore and boat diving.

Originally designed to be a second base of operations in the region to complement Sipadan Resort, with the new conservation project in progress, BDMR has been promoted to their flagship operation and base for diving both Sipadan and Mabul.

BDMR was built with divers needs in mind. Every detail laid out to make your stay memorable. Accommodations are provided in attractive and comfortable chalets, all with a view of the beach and the Borneo Mainland in the distance.

The resort is set in a quiet uncrowded location which allows you to really relax and unwind. Each Chalet consists of two rooms. Since the dive sites are close, frequently you will return to the resort for your surface interval so you can enjoy the balmy tropical breezes on your private veranda.

The chalets are constructed of beautiful hardwoods in a local style. Ceiling fans and balmy tropical breezes provide ample cooling, but each chalet is also fully air conditioned for your comfort.

Amenities such as hair dryers and reading lamps in addition to a comfortable sofa for relaxing with your favorite book and private ensuite bathrooms providing modern hot showers and toilet facilities are in every room type.

The resort boasts 17 Deluxe Twins, 5 Deluxe Doubles, 4 Runggus Deluxe Twins, 2 Runggus Deluxe Doubles and 2 Super Deluxe Doubles.

When you are not diving, soak up some sun on the powdery white sand of the private beach in front of the resort, or enjoy a stroll around the island beneath the palm trees gently swaying in the breeze. The warm waters are perfect for an afternoon swim or snorkeling.

Even the local kids make great photo subjects, always ready to ham it up for the camera. Mabul’s population are warm and friendly and always have a smile ready for guests to the island.

Borneo Divers Mabul Resort pampers you with delectable entrees and impeccable service. The resort’s Chef and his team specialize in Malaysian, Asian, Japanese, Chinese and Western Cuisines.

In the evening, relax in the quiet comfort of a warm tropical night. Get plenty of rest, because the dive staff at the onsite 5-star PADI IDC Dive center, Borneo Divers will keep you busy tomorrow.

When it’s time to go diving, you won’t have to go far. The fully equipped dive center is just a few steps from the beach, and you won’t have to carry a lot of heavy gear around either. The friendly dive staff will have tanks ready for you on the boat.

Borneo Diver’s fast fleet of fast modern speedboats ensure that whether you are going to one of the macro sites surrounding Mabul, or to the famous dive sites of nearby Sipadan, your transportation will be fast safe and comfortable. The spacious dining hall also serves as a meeting place for socializing. You can relax and enjoy the evening with your friends or watch an Underwater Video to prime you for the next day’s dive schedule.

An Introduction to Malaysia


Malaysia is situated seven degrees north of the equator in Southeast Asia. The northern part of Peninsular Malaysia borders Thailand. To the east is the South China Sea, to the south is Singapore and to the west are the Straits of Melaka.

Malaysia has a warm and humid climate. The humidity is about 80% all year round and temperatures range from 21 to 32°C. The climate is affected by the northeast and southwest monsoons, tropical winds that alternate during the course of the year.

Much of Malaysia is mountainous and they include two of the highest mountains in south-east Asia. Dramatic limestone outcrops, fascinating caves and spectacular waterfalls can also be found.

About four-fifths of Malaysia is covered by tropical rainforest, one of the most complex and rich ecosystems in the world. It is home to about 15,000 species of flowering plants and trees, 600 species of birds and 210 species of mammals. The Malaysian government has set aside more than 1.49 million hectares to protect them from development and has enacted legislation to save Malaysia's precious rainforest and its rare wildlife.

Malaysia plays host to an amazingly diverse range of scuba destinations, from cavorting with turtles and swirling tornadoes of barracuda in Sipadan Island to the pristine coral atoll and hammerhead sharks in Layang Layang. You can find migrating whale sharks around Lankayan and macro diving in Mabul and Kapalai islands. Sabah (Malaysian Borneo) is the basis of Malaysia's claim as home to world class scuba diving. If you're looking for a memorable break on beautiful equatorial islands with pristine white sand beaches coupled with outstanding underwater marine beauty and diversity, then scuba diving in Malaysia is bound to have something for you. Just budget plenty of spare time - there are so many outstanding opportunities on offer.

Malaysia is a land of fascinating sights and attractions. Rich in color and contrasts, her multi-faceted charm provides intriguing images that leave visitors with memories to cherish.
