We stayed at Pom Pom three nights for our honeymoon. The beach and location was exceeding all our expectations, so beautiful! We stayed in a beach villa which was great because the snorkeling was just a few meters from of our veranda. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I have read that people are not completely satisfied with the... More

Paradise does exist! Wonderful hotel, very calm and peaceful. Simple food but good. Simple service but full of smile. Nice little houses on the beach. Very cleaned beaches compared to other hotels in the area. Try the Signature Massage with the ying yang spa's team. Agnes who made this massage for me was incredible! A lot of baby turtles releases... More

When you arrive, by the boat, from Semporna, at the jetty of the resort, your eyes don't know where to go... The blue sky (it's a place where the good weather is guaranteed the whole year, no monsoon), the white sand or the translucid water. It's just breathtaking. It's really cool. The rooms (villas) are comfortables, recents, air-conditionned and very... More

First of all, I would like to differentiate between the island itself and the resort. as for the island, it is amazing, full of all marine life you can imagine. We are not divers but we managed to see an uncountable number of fish species just snorkeling or simply from our bungalow. We stayed at an overwater bungalow which was... More

My wife and I stayed at Pom Pom for four nights and were very happy with the idyllic location and our beautiful (if slightly run down) beachfront villa. We were more than happy with the service that we received but had the following issues: 1. The food was very Chinese orientated, with very little Malaysian food, to cater for the... More

Possibly one of prettiest places that I have been to - a paradise island in the middle of a sea, surrounded with sapphire waters and coral reefs. White sandy beaches, palm trees and amazing weather. Nothing to add.. Resort is very comfortable - we had beach villa with nearly whole beach to us (may - very little turists). Villa is... More

We were 4 friends and in the beginning we were a little hesitant as it was clearly a resort for mainly Chinese people, but we have been super happy to have chosen this island.
