          I have heard about some incidents of kidnaping around the area? How safe is it to travel there during this period? Does the resort has its own security?

          Plenty of security, relax.
          My friends and I have a booking for 4 divers at the Sipadan-Mabul resort in early July. Could you advise regarding the safety situation of the area - both the dive sites and the resort. There have been some incidents in the last 2 years of kidnappings in the area and we are a little worried about that. Also, how safe is it with the boats bringing us out to the dive sites? Appreciate if you could let us know, thanks!
