    The spectacular Villa Hibiscus is very lonely, far away from any civilization at a wonderful and peaceful white sandy beach, decorated with a lot of taste and equipped with an amazing infinity pool of 15 meters. The South China Sea is very clean there and invited us to swim in green-blue shimmering water. James, the ("Top") manager of the villa, did his best to make us feel very welcome and comfortable. Once a week he looked after us, cared about everything we needed and gave some good advice to discover the area around Kudat. James was very gracious allowing us to check out later as our flight was late in the evening. Thank you, James, for all your support! The rooms in the villa were enormous and the beds very comfortable. Every day they were cleaned by the friendly and always smiling staff, which also prepared breakfast of your choice with toast, different eggs, orange juice, tea & coffee and changing local fruits. Max, our daily point of contact at the villa who speaks pretty good English, made a huge effort with extra things arranged for us, like organizing a trip to local markets around Kudat and dinner services for the night (Malaysian food from 3 restaurants around Tip of Borneo). Three times we had the culinarian chef "J" from "Merrimas" to cook for us, which was, according to the price-performance ratio, mediocre and therefore nothing to write home about. A security-team of 4 guys made us feel safe during the nights and they could also provide things from a "mini bar" (big fridge in a barn) if necessary. At least there is Poppy, the lovey villa dog, who is very friendly but unobtrusive Almost every day we enjoyed breathtaking sunsets, and everything was perfect. To summarize it: We have had one of the best villas ever. We would highly recommend this outstanding oasis of peace within the rain forest of Borneo. Aline & Markus
