Indonesia – The Shangri La Risa Ria, Borneo

What a hotel! The Shangri La Risa Ria is one of my favourite hotels, we had a family holiday here and an amazing time. The hotel has many facilities and a fantastic long wide beach. There is a nature reserve attached to the hotel with tree top walk and nature experts on hand.

While here we did a side trip to Mount Kinabalu which was very good, you hike up the mountain stay a night in a hut and reach the summit for sun rise before walking back down. The views are amazing.

A soak in the hot springs at the bottom was fun and refreshing.

We then headed to Sepilok orangutan centre which was a real highlight of the trip. A very memorable time watching the old man of the jungle in the trees.

Borneo has so much to offer, beaches, unique wildlife, mountains, rivers – a must to visit.
