We stayed here for four nights while travelling around Malaysian Borneo. Wow! This place feels like a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ type of place! A gorgeous, large, well provisioned beach hut perched on a bluff of rock ten metres or so above a white sand beach that...More

About the neighborhood
The nearest restaurant, Secret Place Café, is about a 10-15 minutes’ walk away and serves good local food right next to an amazing beach. The owner can also provide fantastic seafood BBQs on the beach or at the chalet! There are other restaurants located at the Tip of Borneo, about a 5 minutes’ drive away, 30 minutes’ walk or 10-15 minutes by bicycle.
Getting around
By foot, bicycle and scooter and car.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Kota Kinabalu International Airport: 111.8 mi
The Tip of Borneo area is undeveloped and only just beginning to be discovered by tourists, which is one of the reasons it is so special! We always recommend our guests to have their own vehicle to give maximum flexibility for exploring the area etc. although often guests just want to relax and explore on foot and consequently no car is required.

It’s about a 3 hours’ drive to reach us from Kota Kinabalu. We can recommend car rental companies and can also organise transfers for you.

Alternatively, to reach us, you can take a shared taxi from Bandaran Berjaya, Kota Kinabalu to Kudat (approx. MYR 35 per person) followed by a private taxi from Kudat town to the Tip of Borneo (approx. MYR 80). Finally, there are flights from Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan to Kudat Airport on Mondays, Thursdays a...
