Gaya Island Resort

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Gaya Island Resort has a beautiful setting fringed by golden sandy beaches, mangroves and coral reefs. Inland is lush tropical rainforest and in the distance, on a clear day Mount Kinabalu can be seen.

The accommodation has been designed in a traditional style typical of the state of Sabah and uses local materials in all of the 120 villas.

LOCATION

Located on Pulau Gaya, the largest of a small group of five islands that make up Tunku Abdul Rahman Park. The hotel is reached by a short boat ride from the nearby city of Kota Kinabalu.

FACILITIES

  • Spa village
  • 40 metre lap pool plus a wading pool for children
  • Fully equipped gymnasium
  • A host of dining choices

ACTIVITIES

The resort has several conservation programmes in place and it is possible to learn about these at the Gaya Island Resort Marine Centre. They include turtle rescue and rehabilitation and coral reef restoration. There is plenty to explore within the ancient rainforest that surrounds the resort with some amazing wildlife resident there including Proboscis Monkey, Giant Red Flying Squirrels, fireflies as well as wonderful flora. Kayak through the mangroves, embark on a sunset cruise, dive, snorkel or take a cookery class - there are many ways to spend your time here.

WHY WE LIKE IT

This luxurious retreat has a wonderful island location yet is only a short boat ride from the city of Kota Kinabalu so makes the perfect end to an action packed trip exploring the mountains, rainforests and Orang-utans of Sabah.
