A simply magical natural wonderland, Borneo is the ultimate destination for a family adventure. On your luxury Borneo family holiday you might find yourselves up close with orangutans, exploring ancient caves, hiking through the rainforest, zooming along with world’s longest zipline, diving to coral reefs and plenty more.

When it comes to Borneo holidays, the iconic orangutan really is the main event. This is one of only two places on the planet where these majestic creatures are still found in the wild, and places like the wonderful Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre allow you and your family to participate in the conservation and protection of Borneo’s famous natives. If you’re travelling with wildlife lovers there’s plenty more to enjoy in Borneo too – just some of the other fauna you’ll find here includes macaques, gibbons, proboscis monkeys and pygmy elephants.

You’ll likely arrive in Kota Kinabalu, a captivating city home to plenty of history waiting to be explored. The city is also a fantastic place to introduce your family to local delicacies and street food. Other must-see stops on your Borneo family holiday include the vast Kinabalu National Park for picturesque walks and wildlife spotting; the Kinabatangan River, where you can cruise the waters or discover local life and traditions on the shores; and Sandakan, the perfect place for culture-seekers to learn more about the Cantonese influence in the area.

For your family holiday, we particularly recommend a stay at Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa, for a slice of tranquil beachside relaxation after your adventure.
