Add a Point to the Map

A serene, Australian-run eco-resort located literally steps away from the South China Sea, Sea Gypsy Village is a friendly choice of accommodation for travelers visiting Pulau Sibu. Daily sailing lessons are organized here, and they often accommodate large groups interested in snorkelling and diving. The resort also organizes walking tours around Pulau Sibu.

Scattered across the grassy sands are thached wooden huts which serve as private chalets. All rooms come with fans and attached bathrooms with drinkable water from the Sea Gypsy well. Their A-frame huts, popular among backpackers, start at RM50 per person, and are a modest but extremely clean affair with two single beds. What makes the A-frames such an attractive option is their proximity to the sea, which is so close that you can smell it inside the hut. Other options include the regular chalets (RM210 per person) which have a king sized bed frame with two single mattresses under one large mosquito net. Family chalets are made up of two rooms, one large bathroom and a private verandah, and go for RM670 per night - a steep price given the simple furnishing of the rooms.

Beers cost RM13, spirits RM12 and juices RM6. There is no happy hour but the bartender is a friendly guy who will talk to you for as long as you want and close the bar only when the last customer retires. The food, however, fluctuates between tasty and tasteless, depending on the cook.

The resort is closed between December and January due to the monsoon season but it is open for one week over the New Year for those who want to party under a new moon.
