Hibiscus Villa


An idyllic and luxurious holiday villa nestled amongst a former coconut plantation on the stunning north coast of Sabah. Hibiscus Villa blends harmoniously into the natural landscape of exotic Malaysian Borneo. Built with relaxation in mind, it boasts large open living spaces both inside and out. The focal point of the property is the 18 metre long Infinity pool which extends into the villa, creating a stunning feature.

From USD $750 per night (Minimum 3 nights).


Food is not included in the rental price; however your first night’s meal and a daily continental breakfast can be arranged if required. You will find a fully equipped kitchen in the villa. An in house chef is available at an additional charge (24 hours notice required).


The stunning 6,000 square foot Hibiscus Villa is set in over 2 acres of private tropical gardens. With an airy, open plan style throughout, there is endless space for relaxing, dining, sleeping and swimming. The property has been designed with large balconies and folding doors to enable you to feel a part of the tropical paradise of exotic northern Borneo. From all rooms you can sit and enjoy stunning coastal and tropical views and watch the beautiful sun set at the end of the day.

Hibiscus Villa has two large lounge areas, both offering plentiful seating to enjoy the views. The ground floor lounge, with folding doors on two sides, is next to the pool.

Within the downstairs living area is the open plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is constructed of exotic timbers with plush granite work surface and breakfast bar, and is equipped with the finest modern fittings, including dishwasher and American style fridge/freezer with built-in ice maker. The dining area has a hand-fashioned tropical hardwood table which can accommodate up to twelve people.

All bedrooms and the ground floor lounge, kitchen and dining area enjoy cool and efficient air conditioning. Alternatively, you can fold back the glass doors and enjoy the fresh natural air and ceiling fans.


Within the immediate area of the villa there is a lot to do:

  • Explore the area’s numerous beaches and bays and take a refreshing dip in the sea – Kelambu is noted as being one of the best beaches in Sabah
  • Walk to the Tip of Borneo, passing through kampungs and the stunning three kilometre long beach of Pantai Kalampunian
  • Try your skill at fishing – a local may even give you some handy tips
  • Discover the magnificent underwater life while snorkelling among the many reefs (limited equipment can be supplied on request)
  • Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Hibiscus Villa’s garden to the beach gazebo
  • Take a challenging trek through the jungle


Hibiscus Villa is approached via its own private driveway with a gravel turning area with covered parking to the side of the villa.

As soon as you enter the villa you are met with the breathtaking views and the striking infinity pool, which enters the building to create a stunning interior feature. Clad in natural stone, with deep and shallow parts, the large swimming pool is enjoyable for all, whether it is for pleasure or for early morning laps. There is also a separate paddling pool.

To the front and side of the house are grass lawns with a selection of gazebos for lounging, dining and barbeques.

The landscaped tropical gardens are beautiful and in between the coconut trees there are an array of exotic plants and flowers including hibiscus, ornamental bananas, bird of paradise, ginger, red and yellow palms, orchids, tree ferns and many more.

From the front of the villa, a rugged path winds downwards through jungle towards a beach gazebo where you can relax and take in the breathtaking beauty of the South China Sea. Venture further and you will find yourself experiencing the quiet white sandy beach.
