Lepa-lepa Resort, Sabah

Located right on the diving site of Sipadan Island, Lepa-Lepa is an ultra high end resort that sits entirely on the surface of the ocean. The term 'Lepa-Lepa' describes the prow of the boats used by the Bayan people signifying the strength and status of the occupant. It is aptly named so as the indigenous Bayan live their whole lives on the waters around Sempurna, from birth to death on their boats.

The landscape, provided by Pentago, lies completely above the ocean. This floating paradise shares a symbiotic relationship with its crystal clear waters. Its pristine environment is an asset and, as such, is well protected, with the resort having little to no impact on it. Every drop of rainwater that lands here is used and reutilised with state of the art recycling systems and technology. The resort is self sustaining. Its dive centre is host to a school for marine research with donations going to local dive and environmental societies. Marina berths, large enough for mega yachts do not impact on the sand, and the sand piling does not affect the heritage coals.

The philosophy of Lepa-Lepa is a message that is close to Pentago's own heart, that is, making environmental friendly developments a viable prospect.
