Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) & Mabul Water Bungalows
SIPADAN-MABUL RESORT (SMART) is a dive destination resort that began its modest operations back in 1992 and has since grown into a well established and reputable resort as it is today. Blessed with clear waters, typically great visibility and the complete lack of monsoon seasons, the resort fully operates all-year-round with over 100 staff. It is strategically located at the southern tip of Pulau Mabul overlooking the renowned Sipadan Island. The island of Sipadan is touted as one of best and exceptional dive spots in the world and needs little introduction, whilst Mabul island is home to spectacular sites for macro diving. SMART offers choice between land chalets and beautiful top-luxurious Water Bungalows built - as its name indicates - above the clear indigo sea and coral reefs of Mabul. With Ka'andaman Spa added to the resort facilities in 2006, it completes the resort as a perfect haven for visitors. As most of our land chalets have undergone renovation in between 2005 and 2007, projects did not stop there as in 2005 the start of our artificial house reef took off successfully. Michael Aw wrote in Scuba Diver Magazine, 'This system is not only one of the few successful artificial reefs, but it is also the most unique in the world'. SMART has 45 land-based chalets (22 are stand-alone detached chalets and 23 are standard semi-detached chalets) which can accommodate up to 90 guests at any one time. All chalets are built from native materials of Borneo, equipped with mosquito screens, air-conditioning and come with attached bathrooms with hot shower facilities. Other facilities include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi whirlpool spa, large dining hall and bars. For your convenience, a sundry shop sells a range of t-shirts, toiletries, souvenirs and other everyday goods. For your office needs, telephone and fax services are available as well as broadband internet access. A Technical Diving Center (SMART-Tec) offers various services such as Nitrox Air and TDI Certification Courses. An underwater video centre (Treasure Images) provides underwater videography courses and services as well as rental of digital cameras. SMART offers scuba diving courses from beginners to divemaster level certified by PADI and NAUI.
