Weak mobile network, clean hotel
The mobile network and wifi is very weak, but the hotel is very clean and the toilet is unique. They offer snorkeling, kayaking, cycling, fishing and visiting the caves. I tried snorkeling but not much to be seen during the high tide. Overall great place!

Great choice good value near Kudat and the tip of borneo.
This was one of my favorite places to stay in my 3 week travels around Sabah. The chalets a well thought out, clean and comfortable. The resort is a great place to relax, go for walks along the beach or if you are into diving or snorkeling it is well worth booking a tour with Giovanni. The corals in the area are in very good condition and Giovanni has a fantastic knowledge of the aqua culture in the region. I had a hire car so was able to use the resort as a base to visit the sights near by. I would definitely recommend this laid back resort to others. Thanks to all the staff for an enjoyable stay.

An Idyllic Retreat
My partner and I recently spent 3 nights at the Biostation and were delighted with our stay. The chalets were clean, comfortable and stylish - though don’t expect any gadgets or luxuries, it’s not that kind of vibe. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. They helped us design our stay and we had much fun exploring on hired bicycles and snorkelling around the reefs at the Tip. We were slightly disappointed not to be able to actually see the research centre or meet any researchers, but it was currently vacant. A big thumbs up for the restaurant who put together some delicious local and fresh dishes. After learning we were vegetarian, we appreciated the veggie specials they put on for us on the subsequent nights. It was a glorious getaway and I’d recommend to others.

We warmy recommend the freediver course with Giovanni
A wonderful place to relax, beautiful little chalets and a private atmosphere. We booked a 3 day PADI freediver course with the diving instructor Giovanni D`Erasmo and really enjoyed it. Giovanni is a experienced instructor and also freediving enthusiast with a broad knowledge on anything related to diving and the sea. Freediving is a lot about relaxation so we also practiced yoga and breathing and it really helped to improve our diving results. Giovanni is a good teacher and fun to be with. He generously combined the mandatory exercises for the diving certificate with enjoyable snorkelling trips in the coral reefs for us. A wonderful introduction to the underwater world! Thank you so much Giovanni!

we‘ve only spend 3 days / 2 nights there, but it was amazing! the chalets are really cozy and compfy , also really clean and we absolutely loved it. the food was really good too! we‘ve booked a snorkeling day trip with them, which was lots of fun. Our guide , Giovanni , is a marine biologist and gave us so many interesting facts about the coral life! He’s really passionate about the whole marine life, which makes him just the perfect guide for a snorkeling trip :) If we’d come back to Borneo, we would definitely stay there again.
