Labuan, a Malaysian island, just a boat-hop away from Brunei, has a special place in the hearts of many Bruneians as they share centuries-old historical and cultural ties.

We are as enamoured as they are about the island and its exciting potential. We think you would, too, so we would love to share our insights about this sun-basked island located on the warm waters of the South China Sea with you!

Labuan is located off the north-east coast of Borneo in East Malaysia (Borneo Island comprises of territories belonging to three sovereign nations- Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia). The territory of Labuan consists of 7 small islands of which Labuan Island is the largest. With the warm tropical weather, pristine sandy beaches and excellent hotel facilities on the main island, Labuan is an ideal place for business and pleasure.
