Love in the Sabah Air – Your Guide to a Sabahan Honeymoon Extraordinaire

After exchanging ‘I dos’ and treating your whole friends and kin to a wedding bash, it’s time for that private post-wedding getaway—a special one that you will remember forever. Enter beautiful Sabah: a place with gorgeous beaches, lush tropical rain forests and refreshing mountain air. Whatever your idea of romance is, Sabah will make it sweeter and more memorable!

Check out these top 6 picks for a lovely Sabahan honeymoon:

1. Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort, Tuaran

Tucked away in Dalit Bay, some 30 minute-drive away from KK City, Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort is the epitome of tropical honeymoon perfection—complete with a gorgeous beach view, an orang utan conservation centre and impeccably spacious rooms. Take a stroll along the beach, go on a banana boat ride, visit an orang utan or book a spa session for two at The Spa at Dalit Bay.

In the evening, enjoy a special dinner for two at the Coast Restaurant and Bar.

2. Mabul Water Bungalow, Semporna

Perfect for the couple who love a combination of luxury and adventure for a honeymoon, the Mabul Water Bungalowoffers a memorable ‘island in the sun’ experience set amidst a rustic-inspired resort and floating over the azure blue Sulu Sea. Take a break from long cuddly sessions by going for a muck diving expedition (Mabul Island is one of the best muck diving sites in the world!) and witness the beauty of Mabul’s diverse underwater life.

3. Sukau Rainforest Lodge, Sandakan

Tired of ‘run of the mill’ honeymoon ideas? Why not have yourself an eco-honeymoon adventure, surrounded by exotic wildlife and lush tropical jungle? Located along the Kinabatangan River basin, Sukau Rainforest Lodge is one of the best places in Sabah to go wildlife spotting and enjoy the beauty of the Bornean rainforest. Go on a river cruise date and get excited as you spot random sightings of the Bornean pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and many other endangered species together. The experience will have you falling in love all over again—both with each other and with nature.
