Gaya Island Resort, Malaysian Borneo

Contemporary Resort


Short description

A luxury hideaway on jungle-clad island of Pulau Gaya


Recommended for:
Beach | Honeymoon | Natural world | Relaxation


The new Gaya Island Resort is located off the coast of Borneo on Pulau Gaya, near Kota Kinabalu. A natural conservation area, Pulau Gaya is the largest of five islands that make up the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park.Surrounded by coral reefs and fringed with golden sandy beaches, protected mangroves and rocky outcrops, the island has a hilly landscape, covered with lush tropical rainforest and an abundance of unique flora and fauna.


A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, this all-villa and suite resort is designed with a contemporary elegance while respecting the traditional architectural sensibilities of the Sabah region; it's a contrast played out in the use of local materials that blend harmoniously with the natural environment. Villas themselves are spacious, tactile and eminently sophisticated, with private balconies that overlook the surrounding and rainforest that frames views of the South China Sea's endless blue.


Whether dining at the Asia-Pacific-inspired Feast Village, tucking into succulent seafood at Fisherman's Cove or enjoying a light snack and a sundowner at the Pool Bar & Lounge, Gaya Island Resort offers superb culinary experiences across the resort. Dining can also be enjoyed on your own verandah, in-villa, or in the form of a picnic at any one of a number of locations across the island. Regular beach barbecues are another highlight of the Gaya Island culinary experience.


Within the resort you'll find the award-winning Spa Village, one of a few spas built in a mangrove setting, offering an ideal natural environment to relax, rejuvenate and refresh the body and soul. Guests can also enjoy complimentary jungle walks and guided trips to a protected reef in the company of the resort's in-house marine biologist.
