We are still on Borneo!
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be back on Borneo and staying for 12 days at the stunning Shangri-La hotel in the Rasa Ria nature reserve. It’s been a great time so far and even though we decided to mostly relax and take it easy we have been up some exploring and adventures as well. After all, Borneo features not only splendid luxury and unparalleled service but also stunning nature and exotic adventures. Here are a few examples of what we have been up to between the beach, the pool and all the great lunches and dinners here in paradise.
We spent a lot of time getting pampered in the spa suites
The Rasa Ria reserve is one of the finest national parks in the world and we occasionally left our little luxury capsule and did some trekking, bird watching, wild life safari and canopy walkways and exploring the amazing rain forest and nature surrounding us here on Borneo.

Up and away!
We also explored the river deltas of Borneo cruising the many rivers and spotting crocodiles, monkeys, birds as well as fishing for crab. We also visited a water village and fish farms nestled in the mangrove swamps.

After almost 12 days in this amazing little paradise, nestled in the rain forest and facing the South China Sea, it is soon time to head back to reality to work on some major projects both in Morocco and Scandinavia. It has been truly magical to be back on Borneo and to once again explore the amazing nature and all the beauty. Soon we will board or Etihad flights and leave, but it is still time for one last walk along the beautiful beach and one last stunning sunset.
