Just off the coast of Malaysian Borneo, two small islands lay in the turquoise water of the Celebes Sea, their white sandy beaches linked by a narrow sandbar at low tide. In the waters around the island, colourful coral gardens are home to an astonishing variety of marine creatures. The perfect beach gives way to wild tropical jungle in the interior, where birdsong is the only sound.

This is Mataking Island.

Its incredible natural beauty has remained almost untouched. The simple, elegant wooden structures of The Reef Dive Resort is the only development on the two islands of Mataking and Mataking Kecil (Small Mataking)

There are plenty of opportunities to explore and enjoy the pristine surroundings, above ground and underwater – even the most restless will be able to keep themselves busy here. Trips to the legendary diving spots of Sipadan Island are also arranged from here.

Those that are intent on relaxation and rejuvenation are free to just soak up the sunshine, indulge in the delicious offerings of The Reef restaurant or get pampered like royalty in the Spa.

The tranquil ambience and enchanting natural scenery creates the perfect setting for a romantic retreat or even a wedding. Create memories to last a lifetime in the midst of the secluded exclusivity of your own tropical island.
