Where to Stay in Sarawak

Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Sarawak

Located approximately 600km from the mainland, it’s hard to imagine a more different place from Peninsular Malaysia than Sarawak – one of Malaysia’s eastern provinces on the island of Borneo. Clear rivers spill down the jungle-covered mountains, super-sized caves abound and the steaming jungle’s secreted river communities and the earthen kingdom of the Kelabit Highlands, come together to make this one of the most intricate and diverse ecosystems on the planet. Budget travellers often head to the longhouses of the interior to get cheap accommodation and the state has a plethora of lodging options to suit every budget. Additionally, luxury ventures thrive but boutique offerings are on the rise plus mid range options are a cut above the average.
