Once you’ve set foot on the resort, you’ll know it’s time to relax and put your worries behind. Surrounded by a peaceful, rich, natural environment, during your stay you can take leisurely walks on serene beaches, take a dip in nearby refreshing waterfalls, visit a Selakau longhouse, cycle through hills, padi fields and paper farms, sea kayak, or take a leisurely boat ride to experience island and coastal sight such as Teluk Melano and Tanjung Datu’ National Park.

If the Season is right, dive and snorkel at the Talang Talang Islands, hike at Gunung Gading National Park to see the world’s largest flower, the Rafflesia, visit watermelon farms galore and more.
