Before booking for Pom Pom Island Resort, I have extensively researched for the right place to go with my wife to spend a short holiday, quiet, sea and beach with excellent corals and abundance of sea life. We ended up emailed a few tripadvisor members and came to the decision to give Pom Pom Island a try. It turns out...

This place was a huge surprise. After arriving in Semporna we really weren't expecting much, but at the end of a quick half hour boat trip the atmosphere was transformed. There we were welcomed on the end of the jetty by the friendly staff who come from all over the world - England, Japan, Italy etc. Then we were led...

Physically stunning - this resort is well run with excellent staff and a low key approach to maintaining the island. We got to see baby turtles which was incredible. The food is nice and satisfying - perhaps could be more varied but the resort is going for a simple approach which is appealing given the beautiful scenery which takes center...

We recently went on a family holiday diving to Pom Pom island. Michelle and Sally the diving instructors really made out trip, they were amazing. We saw so many turtles on our first dive along with lots of other amazing creatures. If you are not divers you can go snorkeling straight off the beach and see such amazing sea life,...

We spent seven nights at Pom Pom travelling with our family and another with young children also. We wondered what to expect at Tawau airport but we were greeted by lovely staff and an exceptionally efficient transfer to Pom pom island. We couldnt believe our eyes really - crystal clear water and beautiful white sand, abundant fish and gorgeous chalets....

Very well designed, constructed, and run. Choose off Trip Advisor reviews, so you can check those for the snorkelling/ diving/ turtles, etc: all good. I was looking for a resort that wouldn't be tired, same old, etc. This delivered. Spacious villas with quality fittings (and they even put the kids in a separate one). Professional, friendly staff (both European and...

The setting really is incredible. An island you can walk around in 30 minutes, with crystal clear water and pearly white sand (dotted with multi coloured star fish!). You cant fail to see turtles, you spy them under the jetty and then we saw about 20 while snorkelling. The snorkling/diving is fantastic though sadly some of the reefs have suffered...
