Why Sarawak

Sarawak, More to Discover

Sarawak, in northwest Borneo, is the largest state in Malaysia and also the most ethnically and culturally diverse. It has more national parks and wildlife reserves than the rest of Malaysia combined and an amazing variety of unique plant and animal life. It is home to almost 30 different ethnic groups, each with its own distinct culture and traditions, and hospitality to visitors is a way of life.

We like to describe our home as “Sarawak, More to Discover”, but we could just as easily say “Sarawak, Where Relaxation is Taken Seriously”. If you plan on having an active recovery, you can recuperate while encountering orangutans and Proboscis monkeys and enjoying upriver longhouse hospitality. If you need to take it a little easier, you can regain your strength with some of the finest regional cuisines in Southeast Asia, or relax on a palm-fringed beach.

Sarawak’s Key Advantages

Ease of Access

Sarawak has excellent international links, mainly via frequent flights to Kuala Lumpur, as well as direct air connections to Singapore.

Personal Care

Sarawak’s private hospitals are relatively small by international standards. That means that you will generally be treated by the same care team throughout your stay, under the direction of your chosen specialist consultant.

Ease of Communication

Sarawak is well known for the high standard of English spoken in everyday use, so just imagine how well our highly-trained healthcare professionals are able to communicate with their international patients.

Halal Certification

Every hospital in Malaysia is required to maintain strict halal standards in every aspect of its operations.

No Hidden Costs

All charges are regulated under the Healthcare Facilities and Services Act 1998 and the Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Regulations 2006.

Low Cost of Accommodation

Sarawak has some of the most competitive hotel prices in the region and hotel categories to suit every budget. You can even opt for a village homestay if your condition allows it. This is important to remember if you are planning a longer stay or family members are accompanying you.

Warm Tropical Climate

Our warm weather can significantly aid recovery time and your sense of overall well being after medical or surgical procedures.

Personal Safety

Sarawak has a low crime rate, and violent crime is very rare indeed. This is important to consider if you will be using a walking aid or are otherwise incapacitated yet still want to see the sights.

Friendly, Hospitable People

Sarawakians are warm and welcoming to visitors, and will always make an extra effort to make medical and healthcare tourists feel at home.

Unique Travel Experience

Sarawak offers the very best of Borneo in a single destination. There is plenty for your family members to do while you are receiving treatment or rehabilitation. Can you imagine a better place to spend your time recovering?

Discover Sarawak

Revealing a side of Asia unlike anywhere else, Sarawak offers an alternative for those seeking humble authenticity far from the tourist-trap clichés.  Visiting Sarawak can be done as a complementary trip to Peninsular Malaysia and neighbouring countries, or a journey discovery all on its own. To discover Sarawak means taking the road less travelled.

Whether it is sharing in lifestyle of one of the many indigenous communities’ longhouses, exploring gigantic caves in the the UNESCO World Heritage of Gunung Mulu National Park, you will find Sarawak offers a host of memorable experiences to bring home to.
