The first thing that hits you is the hu­mid­ity. Thick with dense heat, and the prom­ise of ex­cite­ment, the air in Kota Kin­a­balu (KK to the lo­cals) – the cap­i­tal of Sabah, a north­ern state on the Malaysian side of Bor­neo – wraps around you like a three­ply cash­mere jumper. Thank­fully, there’s an an­ti­dote, in the form of the pri­vate ocean bay and crisp air-con­di­tioned rooms at the Shangri-La Tan­jung Aru Re­sort and Spa. Go and grab your­self a day bed by the sea, take a well-earned dip in the balmy wa­ter, or­der the co­conut prawns and a frozen daiquiri from the beach bar, and plot world dom­i­na­tion as the sun hits the ocean.
