We joined our friends in Borneo for a long weekend, a 40th birthday and a whole lot of fun and relaxation. We flew from Singapore to the island of Borneo — the third largest island in the world, split into three areas, ruled by three countries: Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. We arrived in the city of Kota Kinabalu in the state of Sabah, Malaysia (Sabah!). After a night in KK we took a boat to another smaller island — Gaya Island. Here we stayed at Bunga Raya, a lovely boutique resort set amidst the jungle overlooking the beach. What a gem of a place — easy to get to yet not overrun (yet), charming treehouse-style villas, beautiful views and a staff of incredibly friendly people who go out of their way to make your stay wonderful.
