“We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 week stay in the Santubong Suites. There are sweeping views of the South China Sea and we enjoyed spotting monkeys from the balcony. The apartment block has a large 25 m pool overlooking the jungle. We had it to ourselves the whole time. There are numerous staff who were more than helpful. We tended to eat out most of the time at the three hotels which are only a 5 min drive away. Borneo is such an exciting place to visit and great fun for children. We were lucky enough to meet Heidi and her family when they stayed at our house in the UK. They are a lovely family and treated our house perfectly. We would highly recommend this swap. ”
