Within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Borneo,
Gaya Island Resort rests along the coast of Malohom Bay, a natural sanctuary nestled
in the hillside of an ancient rainforest with a stunning outline of Mount Kinabalu on the horizon.
The resort's architecture respects Sabahan elements; its 120 villas and two-bedroom suite use
local materials and blend harmoniously with the natural environment while villa interiors are
designed with a contemporary elegance.
Yet this is more than just a beautiful beachfront resort in stunning surroundings; with its PURE
activities, this is a place for the curious to actively engage or peacefully absorb all Borneo has to offer.
Seamlessly integrated within the mangroves is Spa Village, offering a rich tapestry of spa programmes that
reflect the ancient healing practices of the region while restoring balance to alleviate modern stresses.
Dining is a burst of freshness and flavour; exquisite, sensory and sublime.
Discoveries, authentic experiences and a sense of intimacy with the natural world all prevail across the land and
seascape of this resort, with its youthful vibe and sun-dappled moments, offering travellers and families an escape
that is distinctively Borneo.
Gaya Island Resort is committed to ecologically-sustainable practices to minimise the carbon footprint within its environment. Therefore, the resort is a walking resort and only minimal motorised vehicles are used for operational purposes.
