Win a holiday to Borneo


Access to Times+ events and offers is exclusive to members of The Times and The Sunday Times

One lucky Times subscriber will win a luxury ten-night stay in Malaysian Borneo, courtesy of Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa and Royal Brunei Airlines.

Rasa Ria is located along the 3km Dalit beach and situated on 400 acres of land framed by two mangrove lined rivers. The winner and their guest will enjoy a stay in the resort’s exclusive Ocean Wing which faces the South China Sea, offering stunning sunset views from the expansive private balcony featuring an outdoor bathtub for two. 

During the holiday there's plenty to keep the winner busy, including a horse-ride on the beach, a sunset firefly river tour and a jungle trek ending with a breakfast for two offering stunning views over Mount Kinabalu.

Rasa Ria has its own nature reserve nestled within 400 acres of tropical jungle and all watched over by Sabah’s iconic Mount Kinabalu.  This unique combination of rainforest, beach and wildlife gives guests the opportunity to experience the highlights of Sabah all within the resort.

The flights are provided by Royal Brunei Airlines, guaranteeing Dreamliner service on all daily long-haul flights from London Heathrow. Every flight offers passengers an warm hospitality, and quiet, spacious cabins.
