Gaya Island Resort


Contemporary Elegance Woven Into Nature

Gaya Island Resort is located on Pulau Gaya, the largest of a cluster of five islands that form the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, a natural marine conservation area off the coast of Borneo, close to Kota Kinabalu. The Resort is fringed with a golden beach, lush rainforest and surrounded by coral reefs. The hilly landscape is covered with an abundance of flora and fauna, making Gaya Island Resort the perfect combination of comfort, natural beauty and exotic wilderness. And to complete this perfect setting, visible in the distance, is the stunning outline of Mount Kinabalu.

Of the land's 40 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort in an effort to respect the land's local culture, tropical vegetation, forestry and wildlife. Seamlessly integrated with the Resort is Spa Village Gaya Island, a unique spa nestled in a mangrove setting, with treatments that combine the therapeutic properties of natural aromatic remedies to soothe and rejuvenate the spirit.

Choose to explore teeming coral reefs, contemplate verdant flora and fauna, traverse jungle trails with a resort naturalist, dine on the freshest seafood or simply lounge in the comfort of your room whilst sipping a tropical cocktail and enjoying the view of Mount Kinabalu. There is a wide range of activities available for you and your loved ones, creating treasures moments for the whole family. 


Guest villa exteriors respect the local vernacular architecture and environment while the interior living space is designed with contemporary elegance to create warmth, comfort and a serene indoor setting.

A total of 120 Hill Villas and a two-bedroom suite nestle within the lush rainforest where nature's abundance is just outside your doorstep. Awake refreshed in a spacious living space to the backdrop of an ancient rainforest and a vantage view of Mount Kinabalu.
