Combining comfort, style and the wilderness of Borneo this island resort is integrated into the natural environment.

In the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu, is the island of Pulau Gaya, home to one of Borneo’s most luxurious resorts. The heart of the hotel, which includes the lap pool, bar and restaurants, is set between verdant rainforest and a gold sand beach, on the very edge of a 40-acre estate. The Spa Village provides an idyllic location amongst the mangroves and offers a wide range of spa programmes and there are a wide variety of activities – encompassing culture, marine, nature, creative and active experiences – that the whole family can enjoy.

Feast Village offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves diverse cuisines from all over the Asia-Pacific region while at the fine dining, adults-only rooftop restaurant Fisherman's Cove you can dine on freshly caught seafood for dinner every evening. You can enjoy a refreshing cocktail or light lunch at the casual Pool Bar and Lounge or perhaps have lunch at the private Tavajun Bay which is reached by a five minute boat ride.

There are 120 modern villas, built using local materials, set amid the rainforest or the mangroves. Bayu Villas are set on a gentle hillside and just a short walk from the beach while the Canopy Villas are set higher up in the forest and have views of rainforest or mangroves. Kinabalu Villas have South China Sea views, while the hugely spacious two-level Suria Suite, which is perfect for families or groups, is also available.
