What to expect
In our experience, some honeymoon couples are looking for adventurous trekking through wild jungles, while others just want to lounge on the pristine white sands of a quiet sunny beach. On your Borneo honeymoon you can do both, and spend time with friendly local people, creating memories that will last forever.
Sabah – the region of Borneo we recommend for honeymoons – has a varied cuisine that features Malaysian curries and local fruits and vegetables that you will find nowhere else on Earth. Don’t be afraid to try something new!
The locals in Sabah are friendly and always happy to help and meet travellers. We try to use local guides to guarantee a truly authentic experience for you in Borneo.
There is a great variety of accommodation in Borneo, from opulent hotels in Kota Kinabalu to authentic rainforest lodges on the Kinabatangan and rustic camps in the foothills of Kinabalu.
In the beach resorts of Lankayan and Mataking, you will find chalets close to the sea, and on Kapalai Island, you stay on accommodation perched directly above the ocean so you can literally dive in from your back garden.
Borneo is a good value-for-money destination and can be tailored to meet your budget requirements.
