Venture into the heart of Borneo on an adventurous honeymoon off the beaten track, where you will have incredible holiday experiences everywhere you go, from the rainforests and jungles of Sabah and Sarawak to the beachside temples and vast caves of Sarawak, alongside colourful wildlife as well as rich marine life- Borneo has some of the most spectacular diving spots in the world, most notably the Sipadan reef. But there are also numerous beautiful islands and beaches perfect for a chilled out honeymoon sunbathing, unwinding and generally not doing very much at all...
Make the most of the country’s natural diversity on land and sea on your honeymoon in Borneo.

Experience Kota Kinabalu, Gaya Island, and much more, on a diverse and memorable Borneo honeymoon. For an extra-thrilling challenge, climb Mount Kinabalu, which rises to over 4000 metres, and time your arrival to see the sun rise over Borneo- an unforgettable experience.
