Great place to stay, really remote and therefore a good place to relax. The Chalet itself has everything needed for a great vacation. Since there is not much arround to do besides diving and other water activities it is best for just a couple of days away from bigger villages.
The only point I would may criticize is breakfast. For me there could have been some more choices than just fruit and toast. But eating right on top of the beach will let you get over it quickly.
We had the most amazing two night stay in Hibiscus Beach Retreat. From arrival the staff were all so welcoming and friendly. The beach hut had all the amenities you could need and there were freely available body boards and snorkels to use (snorkeling down in the sea next to the beach hut was great), and the view and beach were just perfect!
Food was ordered through delivery service or a bike ride to the nearest restaurant that was open. The food was fantastic, with a chef cooked BBQ on the last night - so much delicious food for great value.
Great place to completely relax and lose all track of time!
Hibiscus Beach Retreat is a great place to stay if you just want to get away from it all and spend a few quiet days in paradise. James really went out of his way to help organize our trip and accommodate our specific travel itinerary. His on-site staff is very friendly and helpful. The chalet features all amenities one could ever wish for (well-stocked fridge, AC, fan, hot water, TV, music player, books...) and the beach is amazing. Perfect place to spend a few quiet days with your loved ones. The online pictures, beautiful as they are, don't do the place justice.
Fantastic accommodation and location. We were really taken care of for our stay at this remote hideaway. We appreciated the eco-friendly approach to tiffin take away boxes (delivered from local restaurants) and a large water dispensers than single use plastic bottles. The local staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
The accommodation was great with beautiful sunsets, an idyllic sandy beach with great snorkelling.
Highly recommended! We enjoyed it so much we returned at the end of our holiday for another few nights.
The clifftop beach retreat is located right on the edge of the beach, beautiful sunsets and really well set up. We only could stay here for one night as it was booked up and I can see why.
Awesome clifftop chalet with beautiful beach right at your doorstep. Perfect off-grid stay for romantic getaway. We had the entire beach for ourselves. Amazing sunset. The caretakers are super thoughtful and friendly. My wife and I had a wonderful time there and will definitely recommend friends to come.
Everything that was said here is true. It is indeed a paradise on earth. We fell in love with the place the very moment we arrived. The seclusion, the quietness, the sound of the wave, the starry sky, the white sandy beach ... The chalet is not exactly luxurious but who needs it when you have the best of the nature? Anyway, we were well taken care of too. We'll be back.
We were staying 7 nights in the clifftop and three nights in the treetops chalet, and we had a wonderful time! The secluded beach, clear water, riff just a couple of meters away from shore and the splendid view on the sea and sunset are unique! We have seen many nice places all aroun the world but this was something special. We also liked the chalets: rustic but comfy, we found everything we needed there. Jetol, the general manager, went out of his way to make us feel at home. He is a very gentle and kind guy and beside a top service, he gave us some quite interesting information about the area, culture, Rungus tribe, etc.
When returning to Borneo, we will definitively consider a trip to Hibiscus in the future and can highly recommend it!
