Located near Mabul and a short boat ride to Sipadan, Seaventures Dive Rig, Sabah Malaysia, takes the gold as the most unique scuba diving resort.
” The gold medal for quirkiest dive resort couldn’t go to any other. This unique boutique hotel is a refurbished oil platform, surrounded by sea off the northeast coast of Sabah. Now we know what you’re thinking, an old oil rig doesn’t sound very comfortable, right? But Seaventures have gone above and beyond to turn this hunk of metal into a homely hotel, complete with stylish, well-appointed accommodation, games and conference rooms, and a standout sundeck on the disused helipad.
The incredible novelty of this resort continues with every dive, with a hydraulic lift lowering divers to the water whenever they get the urge. Combine this easy approach to underwater exploration with three daily boat dives – to both Sipadan and the iconic local sites of Mabul and Kapalai – and you’re guaranteed a remarkable dive vacation. Not to mention, Seaventures is also fully tech-friendly, offering a range of courses, facilities for private gear, and even rental rebreathers.”
