Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa

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.
