From the modern speedboats to boats still depending on wind force...

While guests can admire the sea front of the Hotel and the lifestyle of Sea Bajaus going about their normal life, one can sees a clash of time zone. From the modern speedboats slashing through the sea with their powerful outboard engines, to boats still depending on brut force and wind force to move the boat forward.

This unique mixture has developed a valuable rare experience for travelers around the world. Sempoma is a small modern fishing village, rich with various culture and ethnics groups. The tranquility of Sipadan Island located just 45 minutes speedboat ride provides and ever colorful sea life always has away to soften even the hardest heart.

Semporna is a transit point for tourists before proceeding offshore by boats to some of Malaysia  finest diving sites including the world-renowned Sipadan Island and Mabul Island.


Sea foods could not have been fresher!

Behind the hotel, there is a dock for ocean-going fishing boats. Also a  small fish market there.
The fishing boats unloaded directly there and the fish could not have been fresher!
