MummyOnTheRun: A Romantic Hideaway at the Tip of Borneo

Hotel Location: Hibiscus Beach Retreat is a collection of two one bed chalets, one called Clifftop and the other called Treetop, situated at the Tip of Borneo in Kudat, the most northerly village in Borneo and just a 10 minute drive to the Tip of Borneo.

If you are visiting the Tip of Borneo and are wondering where to stay, you should check out Hibiscus Beach Retreat. 

We stayed in Treetops, a one bed chalet (with a day bed and pull out bed so it can accommodate up to four people) in the most stunning location.

Our taxi dropped us off at the bottom of a small pathway into the jungle vegetation.

I could hardly fathom that there was accommodation just a three minute ‘trek’ away.

But there was… nestled within the lush green jungle with the music of the wildlife mixed with the roar of crashing waves (we couldn’t see the sea at this stage but we could hear it).

It’s a three minute walk to its own white sand private beach, shared only with the other accommodation.

Room: Treetops is a chalet comprised of one large room with a double bed (with mosquito net), a daybed and a roll out extra bed.

It has a tiny kitchen with a fridge, toaster and kettle and an equally tiny but modern bathroom with a shower, loo and sink.

The chalet has a decent sized balcony with two sun loungers and a table with four chairs.
