Water chalets get you to relax in the best way possible — how could you not when you’re surrounded by crystal clear water? If we were surrounded by water, we’d definitely pretend we were mermaids for a while. Here are some of the best water chalets in Malaysia you should keep in your to-go list.

1. Mabul Water Bungalow

Located on the gorgeous Mabul Island, the 4-star dive-resort offers guests a scenic view of the renowned Sipadan Island. The traditional architectural design of the bungalows coupled with its contemporary interior, promises guests a unique and memorable stay.

At Mabul, you’ll not only have the chance to enjoy a panoramic view of the clear blue sea but also the opportunity to dive all the way from Mabul to Sipadan. On the contrary, if you’re looking for a much more relaxing escapade, don’t miss out on the resort’s luxury spa for a good massage to release all that stress you’ve been holding in.
