Very nice and cozy place with just 12 water villas. Had some of the best seafood, activities and service.Went with Family and Friends. Stayed for 4 nights.
Upon arrival in Tawau, we were picked up by Villa staff. Some 40 minutes later, we arrived at the Semporna jetty. There is a KFC, Starbucks and Tealive. Another 10 minutes by speedboat, we arrived at the villa.
We occupied 3 villas and they had been sanitized upon our arrival. The room is quite large and so is the bathroom. Water surrounding the villa is clear and there were fishes around. We enjoyed the villa until dinner time. For dinner, although it was included in our package, we asked to add other fresh seafood, which we can pay a reasonable price and cooked by the villa staff. The dinner was very good.
The next day, we went for scuba diving at Mataking. When we got back, we were surprised with another great seafood meal.
We noticed that, there is the constant patrolling by the Police and Armed Forces on the land and sea. So, the feeling is unusual, but we felt safe.
The 3rd day was another great scuba diving day at Kapalai and Mabul. We saw giant green turtles, trevally, lobsters and stingrays. For dinner, we went slow on the seafood to watch our cholesterol and had steam fish.
Forth day, we went island hoping, a little hiking and lots of snorkeling. The beach at some of these islands were simply amazing and some of the best views that can rival Maldives.
Fifth day, it was time to leave. Everyone enjoyed so much that it was sad to leave. The team at Shun Shun really took good care of us. We hope to return as soon as possible.
