They will be launching probably in August and i will keep you updated. ;) Please check out the video i made below! Thank you very much.

























This is the 1st floor of the pontoon. Here you can enjoy yourself with a cup of icy cold drink and enjoy the sunset view perfectly with your friends or loved ones.




The pontoon is actually nearby to Pulau Gaya and you can snorkel over to the small beach on the island. But beware of the sea urchins they are laying around the coral reef. 





The underwater observatory is pretty neat. You can view the open sea fishes and also the diving practice area.

Diving practice area where people get to take up their diving introduction class. 





People get to suit up at the partially submerged bay before they go for snorkeling or diving.


















Here is where the diving practices are. you can also do some snorkeling too. I did yoga instead. Photograph credit to Vincent Wang





Thank you Angeline and Borneo Reef World for the invitation! You may check their review [here]
This is no ordinary park, this is a huge floating barge or pontoon, right smack in the middle of the ocean, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. - foodloh.com

Personal experience
It was definitely one of the kind attraction in Sabah and I had tones of fun over there. The Borneo Reef World platform is huge and there were fishes everywhere during my snorkeling session. The coral reef over there is magnificent, much more prettier than Pulau Sapi and Pulau Mamutik. Not to forget, it is also one of the best spots to view the sunset too. Clean fresh water is supplied on board for proper clean up. In case of hunger, foods are provided too! I can imagine few years from now it will be full with tourists from all over the world.
