Make A Holiday Rental Chalet in Sabah, Malaysia, Your Home Away From Home

The second largest of the 13 regions of Malaysia, Sabah occupies the far north-eastern corner of the island of Borneo. The separate country of Brunei lies to the west and Malaysia’s largest state of Sarawak is also in this direction. Sabah has a border with Indonesia to the south. Any holidays in Sabah are guaranteed to be anything but boring - this region of Borneo is a unique part of our planet where the flora and fauna are enough of an attraction in themselves. Self catering accommodation in Sabah will be comfortable and well appointed. 

Things to Do on Holiday in Sabah, Malaysia

It is best to plan out your holidays in Sabah before you actually reach this amazing state: this is because there are just so many things to see and do across this vast region. If your self catering accommodation is based in the west of the state - you will find that this is more mountainous terrain and particularly beautiful. The east of the state tends to be more low-lying. It is certainly a good idea to visit the capital of Sabah - Kota Kinabalu - whilst enjoying your holidays in the area. This will give you an ideal opportunity to learn so much more about the region and island of Borneo as a whole. Head for The Sabah Museum for some fascinating artefacts relating to the area. Take time to include The Science and Technology Centre and The Sabah Art Gallery: both of which are also located in this interesting city. For a massive taste of Sabah culture, you might wish to include The Monsopiad Cultural Village on your itinerary.  

Places to Visit on Holiday in Sabah, Malaysia

Let’s be honest here, the main reason why people are going to want to spend their holidays in Sabah is going to be because of the unique wildlife that is indigenous to the area. Well now, you are going to be spoilt for choice with the sheer number of attractions that are devoted to exactly that for you. Sabah is becoming increasingly aware of the need for ecotourism and this is probably why it now attracts more than two million visitors per year. There are a number of National Parks strewn across the state and Kinabalu National Park is one of the most popular. This park was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site back in 2000. 

Weather in Sabah, Malaysia

On your holidays in Sabah, expect the climate to be tropical; in fact, more like that of a full-on rain forest in certain parts of the state. Temperatures tend to be pretty consistent throughout the year and will nearly always reach the 30s degrees Celsius as a high and remain in the mid-twenties degrees Celsius as a low. Rainfall is generally high across the state, but will be immense in the definite rain forest areas. 

Travel to Sabah, Malaysia

The main way of arranging transport for your holidays in Sabah is to book a direct flight from the UK to Kuala Lumpur and then take a connecting flight onto Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI). This is most definitely one part of the world that is worth these non-direct flight arrangements. You can choose to fly with airlines such as Malaysia Airways, British Airways and Cathay Pacific and the majority of these flights will tend to depart from London Heathrow (LHR).

Before we got there Ray and Fran were really helpful answering our questions and advising us on planning our trip. Whilst we were there they answered any questions we had quickly by email. The house is beautiful and confortable with everything we could need. The pool was incredible, as were the views. There were lovely places close buy and everyone was really friendly. The highlight for us was the reef on our doorstep. We spent most days swimming there and saw loads of amazing fish, coral and even a turtle. It was such a relaxing trip and I would recommend it to anyone. Our kids are 6 and 9 and they loved it too
