We are a small Eco resort offering the best of the beaches and the jungle at the Tip of Borneo , Kudat , Sabah , East Malaysia. We have a lot of sustainable core values at the heart of our thinking and especially the welfare and development of the local Rungus community. We have accommodation , of traditional Rungus style nestled in amongst the jungle and a restaurant right on the beach at the Tip Of Borneo . With our volunteers we like to offer a " win win" situation so as to ensure that both parties ( us and you) are able to get the most out of each other for mutual benefit.

Travellers will be helping alongside our Rungus staff ( Rungus people are the indigenous tribe up here) , so Workawayers have the possibility to learn more about the Rungus culture and their language. We also have a Rungus museum for guests and workawayers to visit to find out more.
We always have a number of projects going on and regularly have large ( school based) volunteer groups staying with us that we plce into the local community to help witch variety of projects. A lot of what we do is aimed at improving the lifestyle of the local Rungus community either through options of employment direct supply of materials and goods. We are passionate about protecting the environment and educating the locals about the importance of the natural environment and all that it offers, this with the aim that they will start to protect it a lot more.

We have separate accommodation for our volunteers in 2 purpose built little chalets ( shared toilets and showers with guests though)
We always offer our volunteers the use of the rental gear we have , bicycles, surf boards, snorkel gear and encourage them to get out and explore the area, this way they can talk knowledgeably with any guests that may ask them questions. We are a family run operation and always consider the volunteers to be apart of our close team.
Normally we offer free accommodation and then ask the volunteer to pay for their own food and drinks , we run a " tab" for all and then at the end of the stay go through the tab, if we feel that they have worked hard then we shall ensure that the bill is certainly gone through to knock items off and make it more affordable , unfortunately we have had some volunteers that have taken advantage of us before and hence we have fallen back onto this method.
