Club Med opening Borneo eco-resort

Club Med recently announced plans for a second Malaysia resort.

The resort will be located near Kota Kinabalu, in Sabah state, Malaysian Borneo, which will be the brand's first large-scale sustainably built BREEAM-certified beach resort in Asia Pacific.

It is expected to open in late 2022.

The all-inclusive Club Med resort will front Kuala Penyu Beach.

"This will be our second resort in Malaysia in a destination that is seeing increased airlift and interest from travellers across the globe including China, Korea, Southeast Asia and Australia," said Henri Giscard d'Estaing, president of Club Med.

"Opening in Kuala Penyu allows us to showcase Sabah's surroundings in a relatively undiscovered part of the world."

The company also operates Club Med Cherating Beach near Kuantan on the east coast of Peninsula Malaysia.
