Kuala Lumpur is a great place to stay, malls littering the landscape and every single crook and cranny easily accessible by Grabtaxi’s and public transport.

But we all need a change of scenery now and then, but you don’t have to leave the comfort of Malaysia to experience a very Un-Kuala Lumpur experience.

Pulau Mabul

Welcome to Pulau Mabul, the antithesis of modern life in Malaysia. Surrounded by an opaque bed of water stretching out to the limit of its horizon, Pulau Mabul feels like its something straight out of a fairy tale.


Located off the South-Eastern Coast of Sabah, take a deeper look into what’s there to do in this picturesque island.


Housing one of the most diverse ecosystems in Malaysia, one of the best ways to spend your time in Mabul is scuba diving into the depths of Mabul’s wonder.

Firstly, it is a stones throw away from Sipadan, one of the greatest places for underwater explorers looking for unique and beautiful species of fish. So use Mabul as a hopping off point to access one of the best diving areas in Malaysia.



Another great reason is the almost translucent water surrounding the water… I mean just look at this.



Mabul might not have malls or shopping centers to fill your time but there is definitely other attractions you can check out during your stay. The most interesting attraction might very well be the traditional huts that populate the island.




Due to the oceanic nature of Mabul, the resorts lean more towards diving resorts as a whole. And plus point, the resorts are absolutely breathtaking!
