A spellbinding Malaysian adventure, with turtles, orangutans, Kuala Lumpur's bright lights and Borneo's shores – includes breakfast, all travel and tours

Out-of-this-world Malaysia has so much to offer the adventurous visitor – steamy jungles, fascinating wildlife both at sea and on land, buzzing cities and tranquil paradise beaches. Enjoy all this and more with this action-packed holiday, beginning in Borneo’s Sandakan for a raft of jungle, river and wildlife experiences, as well as a stay on Kinabatangan’s peaceful riverside and city slicking in Kuala Lumpur, all before some beach down time on the Langkawi shores.

You’ll kick things off in Sandakan on Borneo’s north coast, where you’ll stay overnight at Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan. The next day, you'll take a boat transfer to reach Selingan Turtle Islands Park where, after dinner, you'll get the chance to see turtles laying their eggs on the beach, and help rangers transfer these precious cargo to the hatchery. You may even have the opportunity to witness baby turtles being released safely into the open sea.

Then, it’s on to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where you’ll walk in the tropical forest, witness orangutan feeding and watch endearing youngsters frolicking in the nursery. Later, continue to the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, where you can spy these delightful creatures enjoying their natural habitat in the enclosed forest.

You'll then cruise through a magical mangrove forest to the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary, where you’ll check-in at Abai Jungle Lodge for an overnight stay by the river. The next morning, a river and wildlife-spotting trip to Pitas Lake awaits (you may spy an elephant family...), following which you'll join in on a tree-planting project and lunch with the locals.

It's back to Sandakan town next, visiting Gomantong Cave en route, before flying to Kuala Lumpur for a two-night stay at Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur - a well-positioned hotel that leaves you within easy access of the metropolis' attractions, from the Petronas Twin Towers to the Golden Triangle. After an included half-day tour, take in a city panorama from the hotel's outdoor pool, unwind in the spa and feast on distinct Asian cuisine at the hotel’s variety of restaurants.

For the final stretch of your Malay meanderings, you'll fly to Langkawi – an awe-inspiring archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia's west coast – for a well-deserved rainforest retreat. For five nights, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of tropical climes, unblemished coastline and your own little place in paradise. The secluded Berjaya Langkawi Resort is the perfect getaway to fully unwind and replenish, with your own Rainforest chalet complete with a rainfall shower and private balcony, overlooking lush greenery.

Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan, Borneo (one night)

Voted the town’s number one hotel on TripAdvisor, Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan is ideally placed on Sandakan's waterfront promenade, offering up stunning bay views. The Eatery overlooking Sandakan Bay is on hand for fresh seafood with lovely views. The Best Brew bar was voted the town's best for a refreshing drink, while a well-equipped gym and infinity pool provide plenty of ways to unwind and keep active too. Retreat to your comfortable Deluxe room, where you'll have 30 spacious square metres to play with, as well as in-room Wi-Fi access.

Selingan Island Chalet, Selingan (one night)

This is back-to-basics island living, where the main purpose is to be near to the island turtle hatchery, so don’t expect any fancy spa or pool – although you can go swimming or snorkelling off the nearby beach. Home for the night is a simple raised wooden chalet, with slanting roof and private terrace. Bathrooms and toilets are shared, while air conditioning ensures a comfortable night’s sleep after all the nighttime excitement of watching the majestic turtles lay their eggs. You’ll enjoy a full-board stay, with the restaurant serving up simple but hearty fare. Note that the chalet is 500 metres from the beach, so just repack a light bag and leave luggage in a locked room at the jetty.

Abai Jungle Lodge (one night)

Built entirely on stilts at the edge of the Kinabatangan River, and surrounded by extensive wooden walkways that take you into the heart of the forest, the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence-winning Abai Jungle Lodge offers total jungle immersion and then some. Monkeys such as silvered, maroon and hose langur, wild orangutan and even clouded leopard have been spotted close by. Ascend a dedicated birdwatching tower at the end of an 800-metre walkway for a great chance of spotting rare birds. Enjoy a full-board stay, dining at Abai Jungle restaurant overlooking the river, on fresh water prawns, fish, vegetables and fruit. You’ll stay in a Chalet room, with a 42-inch wide bed, en-suite bathroom with hot shower, ceiling fan, netted windows and safe.

Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge, Borneo (one night)

The rooms at Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge are located in stilted chalets over the water, with a prime setting in the village of Sakau. The famous Kinabatangan River is renowned for its exceptional wildlife encounters, and the hotel’s bird tower offers a great chance to spot winged residents of the riverbanks. Bring your sensible shoes for navigating the lodge’s hill walking trail that leads through the jungle – you never know what you might spot. Dinner is served buffer style and you can retire to a TV room afterwards to watch fascinating documentaries on Sabah’s wildlife.

Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur (two nights)

This modern hotel sits within easy reach of the city’s sights, along Jalan Ampang and near to the 'Golden Triangle', which encompasses the city’s prime business, financial and entertainment districts. Escape the city humdrum in the outdoor pool, complete with bonus views over the skyline and an all-important pool bar, and take a moment on the inviting garden terrace. There’s a gym and sauna room too, plus a spa and hair salon for urban preening. Three tempting restaurants serve local, international, Cantonese, Sze Chuan and Japanese cuisine between them.

Berjaya Resort Langkawi (five nights)

The Berjaya Resort Langkawi is certainly something special. Set in a remote corner of Langkawi, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort is made up of charming chalets that perfectly mix a traditional aesthetic with contemporary luxury experience. You’ll have the pleasure of staying in a Rainforest chalet, a room that compliments the incredible views with soft greens and elegant wooden floors and furniture. Large windows and a private balcony bring the lush rainforest in reach, creating an immersive sense of getting close to nature. Couple this with a rain shower, an incredible selection of restaurants and bars, and stunning coastline, and Berjaya is set to invigorate body and soul.
