Sipadan Mabul Resort- SMART
Yogi nagged and nagged me about Sipadan. “I need time underwater!” he says. “Don’t cut short my diving time!” He needed to nag because I have a habit of prioritizing land shoots. Listening to the demanding husband, I booked us 10 days and 9 nights in Sipadan Mabul Resort or SMART. We stayed in SMART eight years ago and had a wonderful time then. Access to Sipadan Island was not restricted then so we thought nothing of our daily morning dives to the famed island. But now that only 120 people (divers and non-divers) were allowed on a daily basis, the stress and want level was 100 times more. We needed SIPADAN, and SMART only had 14 slots allotted to them daily.
