About Sutera Sanctuary Lodges
Manukan Island is a tropical island only 10 minutes from the city of Kota Kinabalu in Borneo. It didn´t take us more than 10 minutes from the airport get to the harbour where Sutera Sanctuary Lodges boat driver was already waiting for us. That´s how easy and worry free Malaysia holiday on Manukan Island can be.
From the harbour in Kota Kinabalu, there is a private boat from Sutera Sanctuary Lodges waiting for you to take you to Manukan Island. After 10 minutes of the boat ride, we were heartily welcomed and introduced to the whole area and facilities.
Each villa is luxury 2 storey accommodation and has everything you can possibly need, included. There is AC in every room, TV and sofa, kitchen, outside terrace and balcony.
Manukan Island is a favourite one-day trip Malaysia holiday destination for people from Kota Kinabalu. But don’t worry, you will have a private beach just in front of your villa!
What to do on Manukan Island
We would be relaxing on the white sandy beach and soaking vitamin D all day long just us!
But there is more to do on Manukan Island!
Don’t forget to grab a mask and snorkel and go to admire the rich and alive marine life just a few meters off the shore. For the best visibility, go early in the morning or later afternoon, when the water is calm and clear.
It´s around 30-40 minute long walk through the jungle there and back.
In case you aren’t feeling like walking, you can watch the sky turn pink from the jetty and it’s pretty spectacular too.
Sutera Sanctuary Lodges have their own restaurant and the food here is an experience on its own!
