  • Wild Luxe in Sabah

    Wild Luxe in Sabah

     

    I'm pretty sure the cheeky grey monkey at my front door wasn't a part of the package … but considering the scene laid out around us – jungles behind, sea view before us, and the thick hum of the early morning birdsong vibrating through the air – this little guy wasn't out of place at all. We watched as he and his family rummaged around the fallen leaves, finding their breakfast, playing chase and just doing what monkeys do before they made their way back into the forest, laughing as they went. Time for the humans to come out to play, and as we made our own way down the winding hillside path towards the beach I knew those macaques were still watching, as curious and amused as we were. 

    We had arrived at Gaya Island Resort on Pulau Gaya the previous afternoon, travelling by water transfer from the mainland of Kota Kinabalu, whizzing across the harbour past huge cargo ships, colourful houses on stilts and the canoes of fisherman out for the daily catch.
