Discover buzzing Kuala Lumpur and Borneo’s wildlife and serene coast, with travel and a day at an orangutan rehabilitation centre

No one image can define Malaysia, from the cloud-piercing, futuristic skyscrapers and ancient temples of the bustling capital Kuala Lumpur, to the deep and dense tropics and tranquil white-sand beaches of Borneo – its wild charm is unrivalled. With this enviable 10-night holiday, you'll bag yourself spellbinding city exploration and enviable beach relaxation.

Starting in Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, an Autograph Collection Hotels member, you'll be surrounded by striking design that features plenty of industrial-cool in shades of cream, brown and gold. From the gorgeous rooftop pool bar, to the French-style Brasserie 25 restaurant, to the chic guest rooms brimming with home-from-home comforts, all is in place to pamper and please. A mere 15-minute drive from the Petronas Twin Towers, you're also well located here for exploring the city's best sights at ease.

You'll in fact embark on a half-day city tour of this electric city, for a chance to take in its most influential structures and their historic past, including the National Monument, King's Palace, National Museum, Independence Square, Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Kuala Lumpur City Gallery, as well as a jaunt to the Petronas Twin Towers or National Mosque.

You’ll then head to the pretty town of Sandakan in Borneo, where your base at the Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan offers unparalleled bay views and top-notch facilities. For an eye-opening experience in Borneo, meet orangutans, bears and monkeys and discover local flora at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre, Sun Bear Conservation Centre and Labuk Bay Monkey Sanctuary.

You’ll then wind your trip down with five glorious nights in Koto Kinabalu at the Gaya Island Resort – an organic, beachfront sanctuary set within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, with panoramic views of Mount Kinabalu. With a Spa Village in the heart of a mangrove, a fine selection of Asian and seafood restaurants and a crop of chic hillside villas, this is an otherworldly paradise. In true James Bond style, you'll arrive by speedboat.

Each of its bespoke guestrooms and suites is kitted out with state-of-the-art technology and black-and-white photography of 1940s Jalan Kamunting, to celebrate the local neighbourhood’s past and present. When you’re not making the most of the custom furnishings, minibar, Wi-Fi and espresso machine in your Deluxe room, you can soak up the views from the rooftop pool and fully equipped gym, or dine on Chinese steamed buns and French delicacies in the hotel’s Brasserie 25 and Man Tao Bar.

Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan, Borneo (two nights)

Your award-winning base in beautiful Borneo is a Travellers' Choice pick among Malaysia's top 25 hotels for romance, with its delicious infinity pool and stunning bay views. Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan is ideally placed along the verdant town's waterfront promenade. After unwinding in the well-equipped gym perhaps, retreat to your comfortable room to enjoy panoramic views of Sandakan Bay and a king-size bed. You have 30 spacious square metres to play with, alongside in-room internet access. The Eatery overlooks Sandakan Bay, where you'll find fresh seafood, whilst milkshakes and coffees are amongst some of the treats available at the Wrapped Cafe, and The Best Brew bar was voted the town's best for a refreshing drink.

Gaya Island Resort, Kota Kinabalu (five nights)

The Gaya Island Resort is the gift that keeps on giving. Accessible only by boat, the resort is located within the sublimely scenic Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu. Comprising 121 hillside villas, the contemporary timber architecture includes local Sabahan elements and is woven seamlessly into the landscape.

The interiors are five-star, and through the mangroves you'll find a Spa Village offering transformative spa programmes inspired by the cultural healing traditions of Sabah's indigenous people. Other features include a house reef, a 40-metre lap-pool, a rooftop restaurant serving freshly caught seafood and another offering Asia-Pacific cuisine. In addition, there are floating cabanas, plus a dive centre and countless outdoor activities (this is one of the main draws).
