Exclusive Hibiscus Villa Aims for High-End Travellers to Stray Off the Trail in Lesser-Known Malaysian Borneo

In the lesser-known northern region of Sabah, newly opened Hibiscus Villa stands in an enviable position overlooking the South China Sea. It offers a unique and unparalleled experience for discerning travellers to enjoy their own sumptuous hideaway.

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, July 28, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Borneo is well-known as a destination where people can rough it and participate in adventure sports. But now there is a softer side to Borneo too, where one can retreat into complete seclusion and luxury.

Opening its doors to guests in July 2010, Hibiscus Villa Borneo, on the north coast of Sabah, has been introduced as an idyllic and luxurious villa offering privacy and exclusivity for those who want to experience absolute comfort and style whilst living in harmony with nature.

The 6,000 square foot villa has endless space for relaxing, dining, sleeping and swimming. The focal point of the property is the 18 metre long infinity pool, which extends into the villa.

Set amidst 2 acres of landscaped tropical gardens and overlooking the azure waters of the South China Sea, guests staying at the villa can walk through the gardens to access the secluded white sandy beach. They can arrange for a personal butler to tend to their every need and can even call upon a private chef to provide a truly unique dining experience.

Blending harmoniously into the natural surroundings, Hibiscus Villa is constructed of natural materials throughout, including sustainable forest managed timber, coconut tree columns, natural stone, grass thatched roofing and water hyacinth river-grass furniture.

Malaysian Borneo is arguably one of the planet's most diverse destinations and Hibiscus Villa stands unique in an enviable and secluded position within the quiet and lesser-known Kudat Peninsula of Sabah. It is situated amongst a natural environment of undulating hills and valleys lined with lush forests and a pristine, coral-fringed coastline with secluded coves, white sandy beaches and clear azure waters, which are only just becoming discovered. For those not content with sumptuous relaxation, options for tours, excursions and activities are virtually limitless and Hibiscus Villa provides an ideal base from which to explore magical Borneo.

The area’s cultural diversity is just as overwhelming, with its warm hospitable multi-ethnic groups and cultures. Guests at Hibiscus Villa will be swept away by the colours and flavours of the Rungus tribe who have populated the northern region for centuries. Committed to preserving the cultural heritage of the indigenous community, Hibiscus Villa employs several local people and contributes towards community welfare betterment programmes.

Malaysian Borneo is centrally located in the heart of South East Asia, and is easily accessible with multiple daily flights from gateway cities Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok, and Brunei to the capital, Kota Kinabalu. Onward transfers to Hibiscus Villa take just 40 minutes by private helicopter or a pleasant 2.5 hour drive passing roadside stalls, rice paddy fields and tropical forests.

Hibiscus Villa is poised to become the next luxury destination for the discerning traveller. With the best beaches in Sabah, international hotel chains and exclusive villa resorts are among those becoming interested in the area.
