A Slice of Heaven at Sipadan Water Village

>> Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Hello readers!

I'm currently at the Mabul Island, off Semporna in Tawau, Sabah for a short break :D I'll be here at the Sipadan Water Village (SWV) for 4 days 3nights, & will spend 1 night at Tawau town itself...just to get a taste & feel of local life in Tawau. 'Nuf said, the photos here will speak for itself...it's SOO awesome here!! (I don't want to go back to PJ!)

On the plane towards Tawau
The clouds were so puffy! The weather was just great for outdoors ;)

Boat ride to the Sipadan Water Village (from Semporna)
The SWV staff picked us from Tawau airport to Semporna jetty - around 45 minutes - 1 hour ride, where we transit to SWV itself by speedboat, another 35 minutes ride.

On the way to Mabul island, where Sipadan Water Village is located
The view on both sides of the boat was fantastic...blue sea, green hills, islands, & some villages here & there ;)

Sipadan Water Village!
Finally at the SWV! I was in awe when I saw the resort...

The welcoming party :D
I felt so at-home there...hahaha...so welcomed!

1st sight of fishies!
Just like a 'lil kid, I was delighted to see a small school of fish :P

The chalets that I'm currently staying in....fuh...best!

The chalet
There's no air-conditioner at this place, so enjoy the sea breeze!

Beverages & mini bar

The dive center/house reef for snorkeling & diving
All the dive/snorkel schedules will be written here...the jetty's here as well :)

The jetty for all boats leaving to various parts of the island/other islands e.g. Kapalai & Sipadan

Sunset @ SWV
No words can describe the beauty of God's creation....I can only stand in awe...

Ah...best...I had a good time snorkeling & relaxing...and thus concludes day 1 of my holiday ;) More updates to come! Are you tempted to be here? :D

Stay tuned with the PerutBesi!

Enjoying Mabul island tremendously,
