THE REEF DIVE RESORT
Welcome to The Reef Dive Resort
3rd Reef Ball Coral Conservation Project
Managing a resort is no walk in the park, but Adrian Van Dooren does it with
a smile and a passion to succeed. Manager of The Reef Dive Resort in Pulau
Mataking, located off the shores of Semporna, Adrian has been in the resort
industry for more than 16 years. He established the first PADI International
Resort Association (PIRA) dive resort in New Zealand and has since found himself
in the hospitality industry. Adrian also prides himself in a being a citizen of
the world. A New Zealander by nationality, he was born in Jakarta and has
managed several resorts in Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea and in his homeland. New
Zealand. Having been brought up in Indonesia, Adrian is no stranger to Malaysian
flavors and loves the local variety of tropical fruit and Sabah's fresh seafood.
"What I really love about Sabah is the weather. I love the summer all year
round. In fact, I went back to New Zealand for a holiday not too long ago and
could not stand the cold! I really longed to be back here. I don't think I can
take the cold winters anymore," he admits with a smile.
When Adrian first arrived in Mataking, he aimed at making The Reef Dive Resort the best dive resort in Sabah by the end of the year. However, with some teething problems at hand, he agrees that for now he is aiming for the establishment to be the best dive resort in the east coast of Sabah. Adrian's years of experience and knowledge will undoubtedly prove to be great assets to the resort in time to come. He is a master scuba diver, having been with PADI for 22 years, and currently runs special training sessions for his staff in first aid and CPR. The resort is also under the guidance of Adrian in implementing safety standards and procedures in diving and boat transfers. He has great sentiments when it comes to the abundant tourism products Sabah has to offer, from pristine rainforests to the wonderful wildlife. "However, I do feel that the local government should educate the operators on the importance of developing a sustainable product and concentrate on conservation efforts.
Their products should be as eco-friendly as possible. We also need to educate our younger generation to stop pollution, the indiscriminate destroying of large areas of jungle and to look after our precious environment," says Adrian, who strongly believes Sabah holds great potential in developing its eco-tourism. In the meantime, Adrian and his dedicated staff have their hands full with the ongoing events and projects organized by The Reef Dive Resort. If you should visit the resort anytime soon, chances are Adrian Van Dooren will be the first to greet you 'Selamat Datang' with his band of singers and musicians; a great start to your fabulous stay at The Reef Dive Resort of Mataking Island.
