Alila Dalit Bay Sabah, Malaysian Borneo
Alila Dalit Bay Sabah is located on the island’s northern coast overlooking 17 acres of pure white, unspoiled foreshore – 40 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu and 90 minutes from Mount Kinabalu, one of Southeast Asia’s highest peaks. The beachfront resort will feature a 152 bedroom/suite hotel with diverse dining, sky lounge and bar, Spa Alila, kids’ club, library, boutiques, swimming pools and an outdoor wedding chapel.
The 74 villas for private ownership are set within a secluded 5-hectare estate, spaciously planned around extensive gardens, forests and water features – each with direct access to the beach and lagoon with panoramic Mengkabong River views. Inspired by Borneo’s longhouses and cultural influences, the villas are a sophisticated blend of refined and raw, crafted in a palette of local woods, off-form concrete, woven rattan, painted screens and tribal artefacts. Ecologically designed for natural airflow, the project will comprise:
One-bedroom Villas (253 sq. m.) – elongated living and bedroom areas open fully on both sides to private gardens, overlooking large private pool, deck and shaded terrace.
Two-bedroom Villas (486 sq. m.) – a long main wing (living, dining and bedroom) with a separate master suite overlooking a swimming pool. The buildings form an L shape around a large internal garden with decks, lounge pavilion and luxe outdoor furniture.
