Photos & Description for this Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort

This resort is located at the island of Kapalai, close to Sipadan and Mabul. Raised out of the turquoise water on stilts in the traditional Bajau style, over a sandy bank above a stunning house reef, and adjoining a diverse reef system with over 20 local dive sites, the Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort is a fantastic way to explore the teeming waters of the Celebes Sea.  All 59 chalets are raised above the reef on stilts, linked by wooden walkways, in a traditional Kampung style, and the rooms are elegant and comfortably styled.  There is great critter hunting to be had around Kapalai and Mabul with Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Blue Ring Octopus, Nudibranchs and much more to be seen, along with some huge Grouper and sunken structures to explore.  Needless to say, being just a short boat ride from (and the closest resort to) the stunning wall dives and jampacked marine life of Sipadan is a huge bonus.
