For this deluxe scuba vacation, divers will stay in 2 of the best resorts in Borneo: the 5 star Shangri La beach resort in Kota Kinabalu and then the Mabul Water Bungalows dive resorts on Mabul island, located 20 minutes by boat from Sipadan.

One of the most famed dive locations in the world, Sipadan is home to many underwater wonders, it is also a protected area, and there are no resorts on Sipadan. To go scuba diving in Sipadan is to literally take a plunge into a hyper-diverse underwater world. In 1989, after filming one of his last documentaries, Jacques Cousteau said "I have seen other places like Sipadan, 45 years ago, but now no more. Now we have found an untouched piece of art".
