You’ll make lasting and meaningful memories together on a Borneo family holiday. The island is bursting with wildlife, and spotting the different monkeys, lizards and tropical birds can be a real education on Borneo’s rich ecosystems. Along the coast, you can swim along beautiful coral reefs or have a family picnic on a white-sand beach.
Borneo is adventurous but also well set up for family travel, and thanks to friendly and knowledgeable English-speaking local guides, you’ll travel in Borneo with peace of mind.

Family accommodation in Borneo
With all of our Borneo accommodation options, our aim is to give your family a taste of real Malaysian hospitality in comfortable and safe surroundings. When going to the jungles, expect mostly simple but comfortable lodging; there might not be air conditioning and you may have to share some bathroom facilities, but you’ll have everything you need for a comfortable night’s rest. Along the beaches and islands, our Borneo family accommodation options range all the way from charming beach bungalows, to stylish resorts.
Don't miss a friendly ape encounter
Meeting those friendly flame-haired apes is a real hit with younger travellers, after all, they are just as mischievous as each other! At the famous Sepilok Orangutan rehabilitation centre in Sabah, you can observe them in a semi-wild enclosure and learn more about the conservation efforts to protect them. Our Orangutan and jungle boat cruise trip is an ideal starting point for your Borneo family holiday, by getting immersed in the heart of the jungle with vibrant wildlife. Simply speak with our travel specialists who can help you customise a trip to your Borneo family travel needs.
