A mesmerising Malaysian escape, combining the rainforests and wildlife of Borneo, city and beach stays, and a cruise - with all flights, tours and private transfers

No one image can define Malaysia, from the cloud-piercing, futuristic skyscrapers of Singapore to the deep and dense, wild tropics and placid white-sand beaches of Borneo - it's rugged charm is unrivalled. With this enviable 14-night holiday, you'll bag yourself an adventure-of-a-lifetime encompassing a host for unforgettable Malay destinations, offering just the right mix of culture, nature and beachside bliss, to have you re-energised and unwound in equal measure.

Your trip begins in Kota Kinabalu, where national parks, forest treks and sulphur hot springs make up your first few days' itinerary. Shopping and cityscapes will feature high on the agenda during your first three nights at the Hotel Grandis, which boasts a Sky Bar next to the best mall in town. It's then straight onto a charismatic cabin stay at the foot of Malaysia's highest peak, where you'll get the chance to visit natural hot springs or take a high canopy walk through tropical rainforest.

In pretty town of Sandakan in Borneo, your base at the Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan offers unparalleled bay views and top-notch facilities. For an eye-opening wildlife experience, you'll visit Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and witness a feeding session before heading to a Sun Bear Sanctuary.

A boat cruise will whisk you up to the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary, starting from the waters of Sulu Sea of Sandakan Town and journeying through the magnificent scenery of the Mangrove Forest. From your riverside lodge base for the next two nights, a handful of boat cruises will help you further explore the rich variety of local wildlife that inhabits the forest-lined shores of the Kinabatangan River.

After such undisturbed tranquillity, a three-night city-stay in Singapore at a super-stylish hotel (complete with infinity pool) creates a welcome link to your final four nights aboard the mesmerising Voyager of the Seas. This impressive vessel will cater to your every whim to help finish your Malaysian trip off in style, with a host of dining and drinking options and endless activities including ice-skating, basketball, golf and climbing. Splash between three different swimming pools on board and be sure to get your chocolate chip cookie dough fix at the ship's very own Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Parlour.
