A completely eco-friendly resort in development that promises the absolute usage of natural resources and encourages biodiversity is on its way to welcome tourists to Sabah.
Little known to most, the Sipadan Islands of Sabah has one of the most magnificent views and amazing diving sites. More popular and niche to scuba divers for the exquisite diving sites, Sipadan Mangrove Resort now hopes to tap on eco-tourists with their new development.
An absolute eco-integrated resort, Sipadan Mangrove Resort is located along the coastal area between Tawau and Semporna, 30 minutes away from Sipadan Island and Mabul Island via sea. Protected by 10 thousand acres of natural mangroves on all sides, the waterfront along Sungai Kalumpang of the resort faces an all-natural mangrove island. Panning 1000 acres in total, its main feature is the eco-friendly resources and mega biodiversity.
With chalets built by natural materials such as wood, nipah, leaves etc., guests have a choice between three kinds of eco-friendly villas to reside in – Mangrove Villa, Lake Villa and River Villa. As the names itself are explanatory, guests can indulge in the different natural environments wherever they choose to stay.
