Highlights: 3 Guided Boat Dives Unlimited House Reef Dives Diving & Snorkeling
For this diving holiday you get to stay in two of best diving havens in Malaysia - Pulau Mataking and Pulau Pom Pom. You go to Pulau Mataking to dive. The beaches on the western side are white and sandy while the eastern shore is rocky. There is a well equipped dive center with a broad wooden deck strategically located by the beach, and hot and cold fresh water for washing up. Biscuits and cold and hot drinks are available on a continuous basis for divers. Some of the best diving, ironically, is at the house reef around the jetty, where the coral is healthy and thriving, and there are lots to see. Pom Pom island is absolutely beautiful. A haven for all who seeks the tranquility and serenity of mother nature. White sand beaches, crystal clear blue water. This is absolutely the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. You come here to dive, and to explore the reefs all around the island. Apart from the surrounding marine attractions of Pom Pom, divers can opt to explore nearby diving sites, such as those of Mataking, Timba Timba, Kalapuan, Pandanan and Bohey Dulang which form part of the Tun Sakaran Marine Park. The Beach and Garden Villas are not only spacious but you practically have the beach literally at your doorstep. But for the ultimate luxury, stay at the Water Villas. Imagine diving right into the ocean at your own personal 'jetty' and enjoy the marine life swimming right below you. Located nearby is a special bungalow that provides much-needed body massages and heavenly reflexology sessions. All this with a fantastic view of the sea! Back on land, have a tour of the island's very own vegetable and fruit garden. The resort supplies its own fresh produce where possible. As the sun begins to set, nothing beats a walk along the starfish-studded beach.
