Leaving Tawau Yacht Club Jetty ,the boat took 2 hours to arrive at the Roach
Reefs Resort because one of the engine failed. We were very upset but were
cooled down by the sight of this beautiful Resort. There are only 9 chalets ,
one Suite with 3 single beds & 8 twinbedded rooms .Rooms are simple , no
airconditioning , only ceiling fan. Amenities only shampoo sachet. Linens &
towels are in good condition. Coconut Trees & hammocks are lined infront each
chalet. As we were occupying the 8 chalets, the whole Island basically became
our property!!! Our Package inlcudes all meals and snorkelling. The Resort Staff
were very accomodative although there seems to be a language problem , it does
take some time for them to understand that we like to go snorkelling. But it was
all arranged & we had a great time out in the sea. Meals were served in the
Dining Hall. Food is excellent. Dining Hall is big which could accomodate 40-50
people. The sunrise & sunset from the Chalets & Resort are so scenic, we could
see Hermit crabs running around on the ground. It was so relaxing , and one
could just throw a fishing line, Fishing time!!!!
Room Tip: The rooms are very simple...but hey its back to the nature, just enjoy the beautiful atmosphere!!!
