Sipadan Water Village is a resort beautifully constructed with Bajau architectural design. Part of the Mabul Island is also home to groups of Bajau fishermen who have built their traditional palm thatched houses.
The entire resort is built over water on stilts made of Belian Wood commonly called ironwood, laid in certain points so as to minimise damage to the existing reef. In its design, Sipadan Water Village has achieved near utopia in its over-the-water layout, splendid water cottage accommodations with flowered sidewalks, wonderfully prepared Asian and Continental cuisine, and impeccable and personable service.
The architectural design of the 45 water chalets reflects the incluence of the local Bajau style. The resort is located on a part of the island where it is sheltered from storms. The floor of the water cottages is less than 1 meter above the high water mark. The chalets are spacious with wide sliding doors that open onto the room's private deck.
The Dive Centre is responsible for all in-water activities and scuba training and education. The centre is equipped with lockers, showers, toilet and a common area for resting between dives with complimentary snack, hot coffee and tea. Custom-built fibreglass dive boats carry 12 passengers each doing 3 trips daily accompanied by a boatman and a Dive Master.
All Dive Masters are specially trained in the marine ecology of Mabul Island and will not only show divers the attractions but also impart their knowledge of the marine life so that guests may return from their memorable holiday with a better understanding of the environment.
