    Borneo

    • Bunga Raya

      As sensual and exotic as the hibiscus flower from which it takes its name, Bunga Raya is a hidden paradise just off the coast of Borneo. A secluded retreat that we think is a real hidden gem, this beautiful boutique resort is a cross between jungle-chic and being ‘at one with nature’. With the dense green jungle canopy and divine white beaches, you feel a million miles away from civilization – the reality is you are only 30 minutes from the airport making this an easily accessible island hideaway.

    • Gaya Island Resort

      This beautiful luxury resort is set on Pulau Gaya, the largest of a cluster of five idyllic tropical islets that make up the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, just a 15 minute speedboat from Kota Kinabalu. Part of the prestigious YTL Hotels group, Gaya Island Resort is a peaceful place with a truly lovely vibe – the perfect ending to a Borneo jungle safari.

    • Abai Jungle Lodge

      The simple but charming Abai Jungle Lodge, located on the banks of the Kinabatangan River is only accessible by a one hour boat journey from Sandakan (a short flight from Kota Kinabalu). The 24 chalets are simple wooden structures with twin beds, ensuite bathrooms and ceiling fans and due to its remote location the power is provided by solar panels and water collected in water tanks. The restaurant is located on the banks of the river offering simple but tasty local produce. The highlight of this lodge is not its accommodation, but more the experience it provides, which is second to none and well worth the journey.

    • Borneo Eagle Resort

      Remote, untouched and intimate all best describe the experience offered at Borneo Eagle Resort, an enchanting thirteen villa luxury retreat on the island of Pulau Tiga. 

    • Borneo Rainforest Lodge, Danum Valley

      Borneo Rainforest Lodge is set beside the Danum River on the edge of a 438 sq. km reserve of spectacular, undisturbed lowland rainforest. This is some of the most impressive rainforest in the world and is home to the full range of Sabah’s lowland fauna, including the rare Sumatran rhinoceros (although they are very rarely seen), sun bears, pygmy elephants, clouded leopards, wild orang-utans, gibbons and many other species of monkeys, reptiles, insects and nocturnal creatures. So far, some 275 species of birds have been recorded in the area.

    • Ranee Boutique Suites

      Set in a 200-year-old colonial shop-front, turned into 24 boutique suite rooms, The Ranee Boutique Suites is one of the few beautiful Boutique Hotels found in Kuching. You’ll find it in the heart of the city’s Old Town. Ideal for those who love adventure and authenticity by day, but like to come home to something a bit more decadent at night. 

    • Shangri-La Rasa Ria

      Just 40 minutes from Kota Kinabalu airport, Shangri La Rasa Ria boasts a stunning location on Pantai Dalit beach.  Surrounded by 400 acres of lush tropical vegetation, the resort offers 420 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites housed in two wings. All feature satellite TV, complimentary Wi-Fi and even a pillow menu.  In the Garden Wing all ground level rooms have a private lanai, accessible through the garden, whilst on the first floor, all rooms have private balconies. 

    • Shangri-La Tanjung Aru

      With inviting beaches nearby, views of sparkling coral islands, and legendary attentive service, Shangri La's Tanjung Aru Resort offers the serenity of a secluded tropical retreat just minutes away from the centre of Kota Kinabalu and only 10 minutes from the airport. Ideal for a one or two night stay before or after a trip to Borneo’s Jungle.

    • Sukau Rainforest Lodge

      Situated on the banks of the Kinabatangan River, Sukau Rainforest Lodge pits you right in the heart of one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Borneo. Orangutan, proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, crocodiles and silver leaf langurs are just some of the animals you can see here. What’s more, they’re free to come and go around the lodge, so it wouldn’t be unusual to see a wild orangutan or a monkey swinging in the trees near your room.

    East Coast Malaysia

    • Japamala

      Gracefully lounging in the emerald green waters of the South China Sea, the tiny island of Tioman is home to a blissfully unspoilt boutique retreat – the JapaMala. Boutique in every sense of the word – just 13 suites; this tropical hideaway is for those who crave solitude and immersion in their natural environment. If you prefer marble bathrooms and sleek, sophisticated surroundings, this is possibly not for you, however, if you want to wake each morning to the sound of the jungle, swim in the warm waters of the sparkling ocean and kick back and relax without a care in the world, JapaMala is made for you.

    • Tanjong Jara Resort

      Peace, solitude and oodles of charm sum up the beautiful Tanjong Jara Resort, located on the unspoilt East Coast of the Malay Peninsula. Fronted by the sparking emerald waters of the South China Sea and shaded by the soaring palms which rustle gently in the breeze, this beautiful resort has long been a favourite with Turquoise. For us it encapsulates all you would anticipate a beautiful Malay resort to be. Think of it as a natural sanctuary designed around the intricate grandeur and elegance of the long-ago palaces, where the staff, chosen from local villages, display a genuine warmth and that irrepressible and uncontrived gentle Asian charm.

    Kuala Lumpur

    • Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

      Undoubtedly one of the city’s finest hotels, the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur boasts stunningly impressive views from its prime location overlooking the flowering gardens of KL’s City Centre Park and adjacent to the soaring Petronas Towers.

Re-opened in December 2012 and now fully restored, The Majestic is set to reclaim its former glory. It is located on 3.2 acres on the historical mile of the city, close to Chinatown and just 5 minutes from Central Station, the city’s main transport hub. The hotel also offers a regular shuttle service to access the famous Bukit Bintang shopping district.

    • Traders Kuala Lumpur

      This contemporary chic hotel (part of the renowned Shangri-La Hotel group) is wonderfully located in the heart of KL, just opposite the Petronas Twin Towers.

    • Villa Samadhi

      Villa Samadhi is a refreshing alternative to the large chain hotels which dominate Kuala Lumpur and offers stylish and secluded luxury tucked away in the leafy embassy district of the city.

    Langkawi & The West Coast

    • Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

      Occupying a beautiful 1.5 kilometre beach – one of the best we have found in Malaysia – this elegant resort lies on the tropical island of Langkawi; a UNESCO Geopark idyll of steamy rainforests, rugged mountains and thrilling mangrove forests.

    • Pangkor Laut Resort

      Over 2 million years in the making, this renowned resort sits within a landscape of ancient forests where the trees are as old as the land itself, where sweeping bays are deserted and quiet but for the cry of the macaque monkeys. It is home to Emerald Bay, an unspoilt crescent of sand hugged by the tangle of tropical jungle. This beach is regularly voted as one of the best in the world and it is easy to see why. Only a tiny fraction of the island’s 300 acres has been developed and the resort blends effortlessly into its jungle surrounds – Mother Nature herself could have been the architect! The resort is expansive, however, the clever design means it’s not difficult to find your own perfect piece of paradise.

    • The Datai

      For those who crave a destination with a real sense of place when travelling, yet still seek superb luxury and all the creature comforts it entails, The Datai is the place for you.

    • The Ritz Carlton, Langkawi

      Langkawi is a perfect choice for those who seek a pristine natural jungle setting, powder soft sand and a laid back vibe. Ritz Carlton offers all this with added luxury and, after a recent visit, is top of our list for a relaxing and intimate stay with or without your family.

      Formerly known as Cheong Fatt Tze, the Blue Mansion is the former historic home of a Penang Chinese merchant family which has been painstakingly preserved and is now converted into a sixteen room guesthouse.

    • The E & O

      Penang’s Eastern and Oriental is one of Asia’s truly iconic colonial hotels, along with Raffles in Singapore or the Oriental in Bangkok. Built in 1885, the hotel’s historic guests include Noel Coward, Rudyard Kipling and Somerset Maugham. Smartly dressed doormen greet you on arrival, making you feel as if you have stepped back in time.

    The Cameron Highlands

    • Cameron Highlands Resort
