Layang Layang Island Resort Overview

Off the mystical island of Borneo lies a little gem, a sparkle within the deep blue sea. Like a mariner’s dream, it stands all alone, a striking haven in the wide ocean awaiting a visitor. This is the intriguing island of Layang Layang, a coral-blessed, deep sea atoll off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia. It’s a refuge where a kaleidoscopic underwater world like no other exists. This marine heritage is a geographical wonder as well, with the atoll rising from the deep blue depth of 2,000m, hardly breaching the surface.

Also known as ‘The Jewel of the Borneo Banks’, Layang Layang has created for itself a calm lagoon which teems with wildlife. As many as 13 coral reefs have formed here, creating a magnetic underwater scenery. Diving is the pinnacle of Layang Layang’s beautiful experience - expect a vacation like no other on this isolated atoll.

The resort can also cater to seminars, meetings, conferences and incentive group functions. There are adequate conference and banqueting facilities, with the ability to host up to 200 persons.
