Gaya Island Resort

Fringed by a golden beach and backed by lush rainforest, Gaya Island Resort is a welcoming and romantic retreat set on an exotic island in the midst of the South China Sea. Surrounded by a wealth of coral reefs for diving, indigenous flora and fauna for guided nature walks, and with an award-winning spa in a unique mangrove setting, four restaurants, and a lounge bar overlooking the pool, it has a real back-to-nature appeal.

With its exotic island ambiance, Gaya Island Resort is a magical blend of stylish comfort and natural beauty - totally conducive to utter relaxation. Nestled within the rainforest are 121 Hill Villas with a variety of views including mangrove, canopy, tropical rainforest and Mount Kinabalu in the distance.

Settle into one of the spa’s six treatment rooms for a sleep inducing massage after a guided meditation session. Go diving and discover the tropical marine life in the coral reefs, learn about Gaya Island Resort Marine Centre's turtle and conservation efforts and dine at Fishermans Cove for the freshest seafood dishes on the rooftop under a starry sky.
