Relaxing and fun
A bunch of us (14 to be exact) stayed at scuba tiger for a week to go scuba diving. We all got chalets which were spacious , clean and facing the water. The staff were super friendly and so were the cats. The owner jack was the best. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and well fed. As most of us were vegetarians he made extra effort to make sure all the food were as per requirement. If you get a chance please try diving with allister who is a DM with the resort. His spotting are bang on and if you are lucky he will take your picture underwater. Make sure you get a chance to hear him sing he has a voice of an angel. One week flew by and honestly by the end of the trip it felt like we were saying goodbye to family. Special thanks to jack who arranged the sunset cruise for us on the last day and for everything else I highly recommend this place. I can't wait to go back especially when the sunset bar opens 😊

Memorable Experience
Stayed a week at Scuba Tiger with a group friends. We had booked the Chalets, which were clean and spacious and cleaned thoroughly upon request. Entire staff is very friendly and always ready to assist. The owner Jack is very attentive and went out of his way to arrange food for us as we are all vegans. On the 1st day after our meal we made a request to Jack to arrange for some soup with the meals, the next day onwards there was soup with each and every meal. Divemasters Jen and Alistair are fantastic and since we had a few beginner divers with us, they were extremely patient with them. They are currently expanding to increase the rooms and refurbishing their restaurant which will be awesome once it is opened. I would definitely visit again.

Awesome relaxed dive centre
Stayed here for 6 nights. The chalet given to us was very nice and the amenities provided were good. The room is very comfortable and well secured. It is not a very big resort so everything was close by and the staff was always there to help and support. The whole atmosphere was of living like family. Both the five masters Jen and Dahlan are very well versed with their job, courteous and English speaking. It was great diving with them. There is common kitchen, refrigerator, freezer and washing machine to use for free. Stock up your food and beer or anything as you like. Restaurant is private, though on site. The same is going under renovation. The owner Mr. Jack is very responsive and takes care personally if all customers requirements. I found the whole place having a very positive energy. Great place to stay and dive.

Good rooms, but customer service and facilities should improve
Stayed here for 2 nights after coming back from Mabul to enjoy a couple of days rest. The Chalets were quite nice, clean and comfortable. However, there was a very thin door/wall between the chalets, which meant we could hear our neighbors very loud. Like other reviews state, Scuba Tiger is 15 min from Semporna, which we didn't mind. However, there were barley any food choices around. Those we found had rather mediocre food quality. The worst drawback of this place is however the service quality and what seems to be a rather confused management. We could never get confirmation on our tour booking until 8pm the day before, when they told us they cant go to the islands and of course all the other agencies were closed. This happened again when trying to book a transfer to airport, and they just said confirm later.. around 7pm in the evening they said that their car couldn't go next morning because it was too early. Never heard of a resort that thinks it's too early to drive to the airport at 645. They finally solved another car service for us with some "friend of a friend" with very low quality and safety of the car. Considering the lack of other good mid-range options in Semporna, Scuba Tiger could be an alternative if you're looking for a decent room at an okay price (for being semporna). However, be warned of the lack of food options and lacking service.

Excellent boating
We stayed for a couple of nights through Amazing Borneo tours. Why would you go here - diving. The boat trips were excellent with Alistair and Soni professional, friendly and good fun. Although we didn't go to Sipidan, the coral reefs were interesting and varied and it seemed we were the first to arrive and last to leave. The boat certainly looked better than the others around (although I have limited experience in this!!!). SAFETY - due to the reports of various actions that we saw in the news just before we came here, this was of concern. However as other reviewers have said, there is a police/military post about 100 yards away and we felt no threat, whereas at the more "idyllic" places, this would be more of a worry. Our little chalet type accommodation was simple but ideal (could do with a bed side lamp). The food was basic (from the inhouse but not connected to Scuba Tiger, restaurant), but we were happy with it. If you have the opportunity to go to the nearby museum, it does offer you great views over Semporna. A special shout out to Jack as well for going out of his way to help us. One tip, make sure you arrive late/super early and leave early/super late to maximise your time. As the boat trips are full days, if you arrive or have to leave during the day, it will mean you will miss out on the trips. One negative is the diving beach at the resort, which is not something you would do due to the amount of rubbish nearby (from neighbours etc.), however hopefully you will get your fill out and about on the boat. Would highly recommend - would like to visit Sipidan!!
