The Sabah region
Hibiscus Villa is situated in an enviable and secluded position within the Kudat Peninsula in northern Borneo, about 150 kilometres north east of the capital, Kota Kinabalu. It is located amongst a diverse 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.
The nearest town, Kudat, a commercial fishing port, is a 20 minute drive away. It has a wide range of restaurants, shops and banks, with daily markets, an 18-hole golf course and marina, a fresh fish market and hospital. The villa is a 5 minute drive from Borneo's northern most tip, the famed landmark, Simpang Mengayau, or the Tip of Borneo.
True virgin rainforests with exotic wildlife, fine sandy beaches and colourful coral reefs, the highest mountain in South East Asia and a rich cultural heritage await those who come to Sabah. Hibiscus Villa is perfectly located for the simple pleasures in life - a quiet stroll along the beach, an afternoon snooze by the pool, a sunset cocktail on the balcony.
Within the immediate area of the villa there is lots to do:
Explore the area's numerous beaches and bays and take a refreshing dip in the sea - Kelambu is noted as being one of the best beaches in Sabah.
Walk to the Tip of Borneo, passing through kampungs and the stunning three kilometre long beach of Pantai Kalampunian.
Try your skill at fishing â€“ a local may even give you some handy tips.
