Behind every stubborn obstacle in life, behind every chronic pain is a story. The first step to transforming this burden of pain and obstacle is to completely REveal it and understand it so you can let it go.

Dr. Simone Ressner’s shamanic approach to acupuncture will uproot the cause of pain and disharmony in your body, fueling your body with optimal life-force energy and empowering you with spiritual clarity. Throughout your retreat you will receive deeply transformational acupuncture treatments.

She will also be teaching daily yoga, co-leading ceremonies and guiding you through nutrition talks to elevate your personal wellness practice.                                      


Have you ever wanted to see wild pygmy elephants? How about walk through cloud forests among monkeys and orangutans?  Come to Borneo with us and experience one of the oldest and most bio diverse rain forests on the planet!  Connect with excitement – what if you felt the same joy everyday about the wild element within you?  Imagine how great it would feel now to jump and laugh without anything holding you back?

Let us restore your YES to life. Borneo’s lush jungles, rivers and paradise beaches will gift you with awe the way that only nature can.  An included jungle survival course up-levels your ability to traverse with mother nature with newfound independence and insight.

All ancient and highly developed civilizations have conceived a map to health and harmonic living, founded on the premise of elemental wisdom. Dr. Simone will highlight the ancient map of the Chinese Medical 5 Element Theory.  Optimizing these 5 elements of nature will re-establish a healthy relationship to the environment within and around you.

Larry Michel will guide you through the 6th Element of your human energetics. Your life attunes to your natural flow and fullest expression.

Arguably one of the most attractive islands off the east coast of Borneo, Mataking is the ultimate island paradise. On this private island the resort provides comfortable and relaxed accommodation, a superb retreat from the adventure of the rain forest.

Crystal clear waters, rich in both macro and pelagic life, surround the small island and are home to an underwater post office, a ship sunk in 2006 to create an artificial reef and a new conservation initiative to promote coral growth: reef balls.

The island is never crowded, and if you can tear yourself away from the gorgeous beaches, the resort spa offers pampering alternatives. It is an eco-friendly resort which is a great option for both divers and those who simply wish to enjoy crystal blue waters and white sandy beach.

With its sparkling white sand, mesmerizing blue waters and top-class resort, Mataking Island is the ideal getaway for both the avid diver and non-diver.

Divers can gear up and explore the Eel Garden, Coral Garden, Nudibranch Garden, Turtle Playground, Lobsters Lair and Hump Head Point.

Non-diving activities include a luxurious pampering experience at Jamu Spa, batik painting, kayaking, canoeing and jungle-trekking to name a few. You can take a leisurely walk to Pulau Mataking Kecil (literally meaning Small Mataking island) which is a 20-minute walk from the main island.

Catch a glimpse of Mataking’s famous ‘Underwater Post Office’, the first of its kind in Malaysia. In March 2006, the resort decided to sink Mataking 1, an old 40-foot wooden cargo ship to create an artificial reef and also to serve as a unique underwater mailbox. Divers seal their mail in a waterproof vacuum bag and post it underwater.



The Kinabatangan River is the second longest river in Malaysia and is known for its exceptional biodiversity. Consisting of five distinct habitats – waterlogged and dry forests, saline and freshwater swamps, and limestone habitats – the lower Kinabatangan has one of the most diverse concentrations of wildlife in Borneo. Expect to see proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, langurs, gibbons, and many species of birds. Pygmy elephants and orangutans are also common. A visit to the river includes dusk and dawn boat cruises, light trekking and night walks, and possible visits to forest restoration areas managed by local communities, tour operators, or conservation agencies.

This resort area known as SIMCA – Sugud Islands Marine Conservation Area, is historic nesting ground for the endangered Green and Hawksbill turtles. SIMCA plays a crucial role in enforcing a no-take zone, protecting the turtle eggs, and monitoring long-term environmental changes in coral cover, fish life, water quality, and sedimentation.


Surrounded by a secondary forest reserve. It is located within nipah and mangrove vegetation and is safe from flood round the year.  Access into the resort is by wooden walkways made from local hardwood called “Belian”. Currently, the resort boasts 4 twin share rooms at its’ Longhouse Cabin and 10 spaciously designed Deluxe chalets for guests wanting more privacy, exclusivity and more facilities. All rooms are equipped with fan, private bathroom with hot and cold shower, shampoo, soap and toilet papers. Swimming pool (coming soon), 40” LED TV with selected Astro Channels (Deluxe chalets only), and Free Wifi internet access within restaurant area, Laundry service is available at a fee. The resort has its’ own 24 hours security personnel. 24 hours electricity is supplied by solar panels and a generator. River water is supplied to the resort and undergo water treatment and sand filtered before use. We also practice collecting rainwater for supplement.


Apart from the river cruises, guests can spend more time and are free to enjoy the nature surrounding. Birds, monkeys such as Silvered Langur, Maroon Langur, Hose Langur, and Wild Orangutan are regularly spotted within the area. Jungle trails via a raised boardwalk are made available for night walks and morning walks.


Mataking Island is located in the Celebes Sea on the state of Sabah.  It is home to the first ‘Underwater Post Office’ in Malaysia and is connected to Pulau Mataking Kecil (Small Mataking Island) via a narrow sand bank. Mataking is a private island belonging to the Reef Dive Resort featuring luxury chalets and a dive center which bring divers to Sipadan. Underpopulated and circled by a white sandy shore, it is also exquisitely private, perfect for anyone seeking peace and tranquility.


Mataking is a private island offering unparalleled snorkeling and diving opportunities and the luxury of the 5-Star Resort Mataking & Spa. Away from the crowd, in one of the most pristine corners of the world, this private retreat offers exquisite comfort, delicious cuisine and superb service.

From the moment you arrive at Mataking, you will be completely immersed in the peace and tranquility of a private tropical island. In addition to the outstanding local dive sites, Mataking Resort offers snorkeling and diving trips to Sipadan island. Recently voted as the best dive spot in the world, Sipadan offers a huge marine bio-diversity along with dramatic landscape and pristine corals.

The resort is lovely, consisting of luxury waterfront Beach Villas and Chalets right on the beach. Every chalet has its own private balcony with direct access to the beach. Delicious fresh meals and snacks are available throughout the day, with an emphasis on locally caught seafood, and evening barbecues held at the bar.

At the resort, they are very proud to state that they are the only island in the Sabah area who employs a full-time marine Biology and Eco-team. Spearheaded by their Head Marine Biologist they are at the forefront of cutting-edge technology in both turtle hatchery management and tagging systems.

Each year, the team manage between 50-80 nests, comprising of both Green turtles and the critically endangered Hawkesbill turtle. Depending on the season, guests to the resort can regularly witness Turtles coming to lay their eggs on our distant shores, and when the time is right (depending on the season) watch baby turtles being released back into the sea from our hatchery for the first time!

You also get the chance to be a Mummy and Daddy to our new babies with their unique “adopt a nest” scheme, where all funds generated from the scheme are used to improve the program.
