For a unique Honeymoon destination - without forfeiting the chance to enjoy a little pampering - look no further than Malaysian Borneo. With long days of sunshine and minimal rain during the summer months, its weather patterns correlate nicely with peak wedding season, too.
Wildlife lovers will rejoice at all the manner of creatures,
great and small, that call Borneo home. From the adorable orangutan,
to the bulbous nosed pot-bellied Proboscis Monkey, along with a
wealth of beautifully plumed birds and colourful insects and
While the accommodation in some of the rainforest reserves is a
little on the simple side (but comfortable enough for a few days),
the Borneo Rainforest Lodge is the ideal Honeymoon
bolthole. The lodge offers a handful of chalets, some of which
boast private outdoor bathtubs overlooking the gurgling Danum River
- the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy the evening rainforest chorus
with a glass of chilled vino.
After a few days adventure in the rainforest, R&R will most
certainly be the order of the day. Beach hotels in Borneo range
from the Shangri-La Rasa Ria with its sweeping sand beach, to
blissful island retreats including Bunga Raya and the Gaya Island
Resort, all of which come with a Spa for obligatory Honeymoon
pampering. Spend days lazing on powder soft beaches, snorkelling
colourful reefs and indulging in a range of delicious Asian
cuisines either with a private beach picnic or a candlelit dinner
with your toes in the sand.
