Borneo Honeymoons

World-class trekking, orang-utan encounters, marine life that makes dive-geeks drool, outstanding beaches... and luxury hotels in the rainforest? A honeymoon in Malay Borneo will tick all the boxes, and then quite a few more! Perhaps your honeymoon is your chance to spot wildlife you thought you’d only ever see with the help of David Attenborough and the BBC. Or maybe you want to start married life by sharing some extraordinary light adventures. Either way, there’s a reason that this famous island is one of the world’s most desirable places for newlyweds. Out of respect to the habitat, accommodation is limited, so make sure you book well in advance...
