The Manana Borneo resort is owned and operated by Yan and Nanni on their beautiful piece of beach next to Kg Pituru Laut in Kalawat –Kota
Belud. Yan who used to work on Perhantian Island on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia has settled down in Sabah and came up with the idea of running a back packer style beach resort. Together with his wife Nani, they acquired the land in Kg. Pituru Laut and started their beach side accommodation and named it Manana Borneo resort .The name “ Manana” which means tomorrow in Spanish, was given by a Canadian travel writer who stayed at the resort and fell in love with the place. He kept putting off his departure till “Manana” and eventually they decided to call the resort Manana (and having visited the resort I can very easily see why).
Local dishes are served at the restaurant, which also doubles as a bar and library. Food is simple and guest sit on cushions on the floor at low tables to eat, read books and watch the sun set. For activities, one could go always go swimming or snorkeling at the reef nearby which has some amazing corals and when the surf is up, try surfing and wakeboarding.
If you’re the type of person who can’t live without your I-pad and Face book, this just might not be the place for you. There is no television and guest come here for the beach, the peace and quite and to just get away from it all.
