Pom Pom Island

Pom Pom Island is 30km NE of Semporna in Sabah, East Malaysia. It is a small white sand island completely surrounded by coral reefs  in the province of Sabah which is a great destination for visitors who want an unforgettable vacation. Pom Pom island got its name from the Pom Pom tree which grows abundantly on the island and has become quite a symbol of the place. 



Pom Pom Island Resort is around 45 minutes by boat from Semporna, Borneo’s coast; it has rich tropical vegetation and is surrounded by white sand and the turquoise waters of the Celebes Sea. It is on part of this beautiful island that Pom Pom Island finds it home.

This little atoll, which takes about an hour to walk around, is often a shelter for both Green and Hawksbill marine turtles that during the night return to the beach to nest. During your vacation, if you are lucky, you might witness the hatching of the eggs and release of baby turtles to the sea.


The resort consists of Beach Front Villas, Garden View Villas and Water Villas, which are constructed in traditional architecture to blend into the native surroundings without disturbing or removing the islands natural vegetation.

The fresh and cooling sea breeze let you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your stay. All villas are air conditioned, contain private balconies and have an attached bathroom with freshwater supply.
