The Reef Dive Resort is the latest addition to the many diving sites in Sabah.
It is situated on Mataking Island, only a 40 minutes boat ride away from Semporna on the mainland and not far from Sipadan Island. The size of the island is about 40 acres.
Experience the beauty and wonders Mataking has to offer.
The Resort boasts luxurious accommodation, in exclusive chalets or deluxe rooms and offers privacy and exclusivity. Whether it is a retreat for your body, soul & mind or exciting undersea exploration, Mataking is the perfect choice.
During the day, guests can relax on the snow-white sandy beach and enjoy the sight of the island’s coconut crab scurrying up a tree. Visitors who prefer a bird’s eye view of Mataking, can climb up the King’s Watchtower and enjoy the breathtaking sight. The more adventurous guests can explore the lush tropical vegetation or have some fun playing beach volleyball & beach soccer.
The resort offers 3 boat dives a day, unlimited house reef diving and not to be missed excursion to the nearby island including the well-known islands of Sipadan and Mabul. There are 30 or so dive sites in and around Mataking and the surrounding islands of Pandanan, Bohayan and Buhai Dulang. Barracudas, rainbow runner, turtles, trevallies, tuna, goby, frogfish, mandarin fish and other rare species of fish cruise the surrounding waters.
Varied species of nudibranch and other macro creatures, which have made the western reef their home, can also be found. The marine life close to shore is just as magnificent as those found in the deep end. The Alice Channel, which is about 100 meters deep and stretches across to Sipadan Island, also offers some exhilarating encounters with marine life.
