Borneo Highlands Resort's Unique Jungle Spa Wins The Malaysia Spa & Wellness Award 2009

The "Peso Perong Theraphy" offered by the exotic "Jungle Spa" of Borneo Highlands Resort was named the "Best Traditional Treatment" at the Malaysia Spa and Wellness Award ceremony on 19 January 2009.

Sitting on the mountain plateau amongst the Bidayuh (local native tribe) lands, the cleverly themed Jungle Spa of Borneo Highlands Resort is a retreat-within-a-retreat, a place where the stresses and strains of modern life can be soothed away, allowing guests to relax and rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul.

Borneo Highlands Resort is cleverly tucked away in the exotic rainforest of Borneo standing at the height of 1,000 metres above sea level on the Sarawak-Kalimantan border. The Resort nestles amongst the oldest and second largest tropical rainforest in the world, surrounded by Mother Nature's treasures. Flushed within 5,000 acres of untouched greens, surrounded by nature and personal attention, Borneo Highlands Resort is surely a place to unwind, renew, and rejuvenate.

The award winning Peso Perong Theraphy offered by the Jungle Spa is a 1 hour body theraphy using traditional Bidayuh methods of massage. Our skillful Bidayuh masseurs uses the homemade massage oil brewed from organic herbs, pepper and ginger. This traditional theraphy heats and warms the body to increase the body's blood circulation and promote skin healing.
