Borneo… for Tarzan
One of the world’s most exciting destinations, Borneo is also home to the orang-utan. And while the Shangri-La Rasa Ria has all the attributes of a luxurious tropical hotel, its 400 lush acres also hold a nature reserve where orang-utans live; there’s also an education centre where guests can learn more about these fascinating creatures. There are 420 rooms, mostly in the Garden Wing, but there are 90 in the Ocean Wing, complete with bathtubs on balconies with ocean views. Aside from the natural attractions, the resort also has an 18-hole championship golf course, a spa, tennis, water sports, ATV safaris, horse riding and a children’s club. Bridge & Wickers offers a ten-day Borneo Beach, Turtles and Orang-Utangs holiday from £944 per person, which takes in visits to the Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre and the vast Marine Turtle Conservation Park.
