Oil rig turns hotel & scuba diving centre in Malaysia

Seaventures Dive Resort in Sabah, Malaysia, is a hotel and scuba diving centre which was transformed from an old oil rig.

I have never heard of the resort (until very recently) despite being a Malaysian. Not surprising though… the place is not catered for common folks, but for diving enthusiast after all. Photos from Seaventures’ official website.

The resort is located near Sipadan, a world’s famous dive site at the Celebes Sea which borders Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

    Unbased R A C I S T statement!

    “The resort is located near Sipadan, a world’s famous dive site at the Celebes Sea which borders Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. The sea is also infamous for piracy activities, but it’s relatively safe at the Malaysian zones.”

    Fair enough, I have deleted the statement. The last kidnapping in Malaysian waters in the area happens in 2001 if not mistaken, I didn’t check the pirate activities in the Philippines and Indonesian at the Celebes Sea and wrote that on my personal perception instead, I apologise for that.

    I won’t admit to the racist accusation though, as there’s nothing racist about that at the first place. Indonesia does have higher piracy activities as a nation as compared to Malaysia. I made the mistake of generalising the matter, which again I’m sorry for that. But racist? Not even close.
