For Borneo, here are some suggestions:

1. Fly to Miri (either by MAS or AirAsia). Visit Niah National Park (it's bout 1 hour drive/bus from Miri). It has an archeological site, a painted cave and you can even visit the nearby Iban longhouse. Since it's quite accessible from Miri, you can allocate 1 day there. You can also fly to Mulu National Park. Great place to see nature.

2. Another option is to fly to Kota Kinabalu (both airlines fly there). It has islands, the jungle and the mountain, all within 2 hours from the city. For beach/sea, you can either stay near the city at the Sutera harbour, or further up at Nexus Karambunai or ShangriLa Rasa Ria Tuaran. Go up the mountain, and stay at the cabin. The view is amazing in the morning. You can also visit the Poring hotspring. As for the islands, there are some just across from KK. Other snorkelling sites would be the Mantanani Islan Resort, off Kota Belud, about 1 hour away from Kota Kinabalu.
