From orangutan nature reserves to luxury beachfront resorts; discover the best Borneo hotels with Kuoni
All our fabulous Borneo resorts, including Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa, are located in the northern state of Sabah, within an easy distance of the capital Kota Kinabalu. Affectionately known as KK, the city acts as a gateway to the region’s magnificent scenery and is a foodie’s paradise boasting a seemingly endless choice of restaurants and hawker stalls. The paradisiacal islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, including Palau Gaya which is home to our luxury beachfront property Gaya Island Resort, can be reached from the city in just 20 minutes via a speedboat transfer. Borneo is of course also home to one of the world's most beloved wildlife species – the orangutan. The best chance to spot these majestic creatures is at one of the rehabilitation centres where they live in a semi-wild state. Guests at Shangri La’s Rasa Ria Resort can explore the resort’s own nature reserve home to rehabilitated orangutans.
