A hotspot for diving thanks to its exquisitely clear turquoise waters, heavenly white sands, vivid sea creatures and coral, the Mataking Resort is a good match for its underwater treasures.

A mix of deluxe rooms, king chalets and beach villas, all 37 rooms are designed with traditional Malaysian architecture in mind, giving guests a peaceful and comfortable place to stay. The décor may be modest in some eyes, but the helpful staff and naturally phenomenal surrounds more than make up for the lack of extravagance.

The spa offers a good range of treatments to pamper yourself in those hours you are out of the water and the cuisine here varies from Malaysian to international food ensuring all taste buds are satisfied. At only forty minutes from Semporna, or Tawai Airport, via speedboat, Mataking Resort is the perfect, low-key seclusion for everyone from serious divers to simple sun-seekers.
