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.

What is a deposit?

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
