Borneo Eagle Resort

About Borneo Eagle Resort

The team behind Borneo Eagle Resort are passionate about providing authentic experiences and excellent service to their guests, all while contributing to vital marine research in Borneo. This boutique resort doesn’t skimp on island luxury, but neither does it exploit its natural surroundings to do so. Coral reefs thriving with marine life, white-sand beaches, volcanic mud-pools hiding beneath the canopy of virgin rainforest – all of this is waiting to be discovered on Pulau Tiga, the home of Borneo Eagle Resort.

This is a fantastic destination for travellers seeking luxury accommodation who don’t wish to lose connection to Borneo’s wildlife and wilderness.

Style

Newly opened in 2018, this luxurious set of villas makes up a little pocket of paradise that combines chic design with a host of natural wonders on your doorstep.

Setting

Situated on the island of Pulau Tiga off the western coast of Sabah in northern Borneo, this resort has an idyllic setting that makes it perfect for travellers seeking relaxation. Keen walkers won’t want to miss exploring the virgin rainforest at the centre of the island.

Accommodation & Facilities

Guests at Borneo Eagle Resort can choose one of three styles of beachfront villa, ranging in size from 177m2 to 288m2. All of the one-bedroom villas come with private decks or verandas and a host of amenities, from 55” flat-screen TVs and home theatre systems to spacious living and dining areas. The Pool Villa comes with a 45m2 swimming pool and private seaside pavilion; the Coral Villa has a calming fish pond and expansive garden; and the top-of-the-line Spa Villa boasts the largest square footage of all three villa styles. A wide range of holistic wellness, rejuvenation and beauty treatments are available, while the fitness centre offers guests the chance to work up a sweat during personal training sessions.

Dining

With a lounge, bar and restaurant available here, all with stunning ocean views, guests will be well catered for whatever time of day or evening they choose to make use of Borneo Eagle Resort’s chic wining and dining facilities. The open-air Eagle’s Nest restaurant adheres to a farm-to-table philosophy and serves refined cuisine in a relaxing beachfront setting, with the team of skilled local chefs utilising both Asian and Western flavours in their dishes. The Sand Bar is the perfect spot for a refreshing midday cocktail or light lunch, while The Landing is ideal for after-dinner drinks as the sun sets over Mount Kinabalu in the distance.

Activities

With the glittering expanse of the South China Sea right outside your door, there are plenty of water-based activities to enjoy here. Diving, fishing and kayaking can all be arranged, but it is the snorkelling that really stands out here. A high level of biodiversity can be observed living on and around the reef very near to the resort’s Coral Villas - part of a marine reserve - and the horizontal plane makes it ideal for snorkelers wanting to explore. Stargazing, island trekking, beach volleyball and a range of other exciting activities can also be arranged.
