Wake-up to the call of gibbons and hornbills from a riverside lodge, journey deep into rainforest in search of creatures of the night and then enjoy some seriously high-end tropical island R&R in a recently opened eco resort – these are just a few of the highlights of a new holiday from Selective Asia that showcases the very best of Malay Borneo.

The 12-day Luxe Borneo has the emphasis firmly placed on the best experiences and finest accommodation. It’s perfect for those keen to explore the country’s jungle, river ways and islands without forgoing comfort and luxury. Organised on a fully tailor-made basis, every aspect is taken care of, including virtually all meals, allowing travellers to immerse themselves in the vast and rugged island in the Malay Archipelago.

The trip uses Kuala Lumpur as its entry point to the region (with two nights at the Mandarin Oriental and a helicopter flight across the city) before the short flight to Borneo and boarding a luxury boat to journey deep into the Kinabatangan Wetlands – home to a diverse concentration of wildlife including a number of endangered species – and accommodation in the area’s finest lodge.

Travelling deeper into the rainforest, the next destination is Danum Valley – a protected 170 square mile conservation area and a surprisingly luxurious lodge setting at the heart of the primary rainforest. The holiday finishes with four nights at the recently opened Borneo Eagle Lodge on the beautiful island of Pulau Tiga

Selective Asia’s 12-day Luxe Borneo costs £5041 per person based on two people travelling, excluding international flights.
