Welcome to a super-chilled-out beachy paradise, with 21 comfy thatched chalets overlooking Pulau Sibu Besar's best swimming and snorkelling beach. The spacious digs are stylish with canopy mosquito nets, cushion-clad lounging spaces and sunken semi-open-air bathrooms. There's a choice of sea-view or family chalets and Island suites. The cheapest chalets have no hot-water shower.

Guests from the other resorts are often lured here by the lovely white beach and loungeable deck bar. There's a dive centre and massage hut, and the staff are lovely. Boats all leave from Tanjung Leman jetty and cost RM100 return.
