It's not worth the money. Stay clear of this one.
The shuttle boat leaves at 12:30, and checkin is at 14:00? I can only guess it's a cash grab to force people to get lunch at the hotel's restaurant. Checkin was chaotic. We had to wait for an hour for our room to be ready. Hotel staff put us in an un-airconditioned room to sweat in the heat along with the remanence of that day's breakfast that was still scattered on the floor. When our room was ready, we were taken to the reception to the nicely air-conditioned and scented waiting room to wait... for all of three minutes, before being shown to our accommodation. We couldn't of waited in there before? Our request for a queen bed had been ignored, the only accommodation with a queen bed had broken AC... Guess who slept in the crack between the beds for the next three nights. Shower had two modes, ultra-low-pressure and barely warm, or high pressure and cold. The rainfall shower/handheld head selector knob had disappeared long ago... We found the maintenance log after dinner one night (it's in the letter box), the last entry was June 2020, it shows... Instead of the three restaurants advertised, there's one. It closes between whenever they decided lunch and dinner to be, at which point its sandwiches or overprice snacks from the souvenir store. I don't think there was one meal that didn't make us sick. Not gushing out of both ends sick, just enough to let you know you'd been mildly food poisoned. It's not worth the money. Stay clear of this one.

A real gem!
Haven’t been to Manukan in a couple of years but it’s always a joy to stay here. They’ve done a really good job maintaining the facilities and the quality of F&B is really good by hotel standards. The beach is a lot cleaner these days as well, which is fantastic.

It’s so private after 16:00 until 8:00 as all the public boats from mainland and other islands will stop. Highly recommended.

All in all a perfect place... The beach Gets a bit busy with day tourists between 9am and 4pm. The villas are super nice with all possible annemities. Housekeeping fills up the fridge every day with water AND plenty of softdrinks. The restaurant is serving delicious foods and staff super friendly in all departments. Resort is well maintained overall and matrases were super good Strongly recommended place... Perfect for your honeymoon or just a few relaxing beach days.

Definitely a place to recommend 👍
As a kind of / part of honeymoon me and my gf stayed on beautiful Manukan Island during our travels in borneo and Malaysia... All in all it was superb. Had two bookings... Two nights in hillside villa and one more in a beach villa. Both are very nice and definitely recommended. The hillside villa is more expensive but you get so much more... Its a two storey villa with all you can imagine... Three balcony, bathtub, etc, etc.... The beach villa is only the half size but had still everything what you might need The overall condition is very good... Beach fills up with daytourists between 9am and 3:30pm... The restaurant is delicious and brings good portions with delicate foods at reasonable price. Service couldn't be better...
