The third largest island in the world, Borneo features luxuriant rainforests and a variety of wildlife from the large-nosed proboscis monkeys to bearded pigs. Golden sandy beaches overlook equatorial waters which house a rich and diverse marine ecosystem with coral gardens as close as 20 metres from the shore.
Gaya Island Resort is an idyllic retreat fringed by a sandy beach and coral reefs within a natural marine conservation park just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Borneo. The 120 hillside villas and a two-bedroom suite, contemporary yet mindful of Sabahan elements, sit harmoniously within the lush tropical rainforest landscape. Featuring a second private beach, its own marine and wildlife centres and a Spa Village, built in a mangrove setting, with treatments inspired by the healing traditions of Sabah's many indigenous people, the resort offers guests the opportunity to discover Borneo’s rich cultural heritage and biodiversity.
