Located a short boat ride off the coast of Malaysian Borneo, Bunga Raya Island Resort and Spa is an island hideaway fringed by a white sandy beach on one side and tropical rainforest on the other.
The 48 stilted villas are nestled into the hillside and have all been hand-crafted by local tradesmen. Each has a private balcony offering beautiful views of the beach and South China Sea beyond and eight of the villas have a private plunge pool. A hilltop spa and infinity pool are the cherry on top.
Why we like Bunga Raya Island Resort and Spa
It has a laid-back feel and although you feel a million miles from anywhere the resort can be reached in just 45 minutes from the nearest airport making it an accessible slice of paradise.

Kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling are all wonderful pastimes at this island retreat. There is also a PADI centre for keen divers. To the rear of the property there are jungle hiking trails as well as zip wires for a spot of jungle fun.
Located on a private island just a 30-minute boat ride from Kota Kinabalu. A further 15-minute drive delivers you to the airport.
