Sea Gypsy Village Resort & Dive Base

Pulau Sibu, 86800 Mersing, Johor, Malaysia
Top 10 Resorts Malaysia

Only three hours from Singapore by road Sea Gypsy Village Resort operate airport pick up from Changi Airport any time of the day or night. The friendly staff are on hand to drive guests directly to Tanjong Leman where a fully licensed boat & driver will be waiting to take them just 20 minutes to Sea Gypsy Village. There is no jetty, guests just hop off and walk barefoot through the water and onto the shore as they step into a holiday from another era.

The beachfront eco-friendly resort is set in a jungle clearing of five acres on an undeveloped island within a Marine Park in the South China Sea. Self sufficient and built almost entirely from wood and atap (palm frond roofing) the resort offers basic comfort with a surprising level of service, especially for children.


Remember when family holidays were long lazy days playing on a beach, building sand castles, climbing everything, exploring everywhere, topped off with lashings of home-cooked food and freshly baked cookies & cakes? Those holidays still exist at Sea Gypsy Village: no computers, no phones, no TVs, just good old fashioned fun with their safe beach, shady garden, daily kids activites, Skin Diver and so much more. Not forgetting the parents, who have time to soak up the sun, read a book or try a Scuba Dive. Free child-minding is also available from 6pm to 10pm every day!
