Mari Mari Sepanggar

Mari Mari Sepanggar

A “secluded” resort with a private white sandy beach front. Dive and relax in total peace, and you’d soon forget you are just 10 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu city.

Just 10 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu will bring you to Sepanggar Island’s white sandy beach and warm turquoise waters.

Mari Mari Sepanggar is an idyllic beach resort set by the hills of primary rainforest fronted by its private white sandy beach. It’s a stone throw away from the city, yet, you’d feel that you are tucked away in blissful tranquility that few have tread.

Stay a night or two in the chalets nestled within the hill or by the beach, watch the city light up in the distance as sunsets, and the surrounding sea and jungle take on another romantic, mysterious facade as night falls.
