Gayana Eco Lodge, Sabah

Lifestyle Choices: Beach | Experience | Romance

Description and Location
The Gayana Eco Lodge is located on Gaya island,  just 10 minutes by speedboat from the pier at Kota Kinabalu following 15 minutes transfer from the airport. All of the accommodation is grouped around the secluded bay with a dense forest backdrop. Gaya Island has no roads, just jungle  trekking paths, only three small boutique hotels ( Gayana, Bunga Raya and a newish YTL property   ) and an authentic fishing village on stilts. No shopping or organised night-life, although Kota Kinabulu  has a surprisingly good selection of mega shopping malls!

The 44 rooms are built on stilts in traditional Malay style, and either face the jungle, lagoon or are overwater. A recent addition has been the opening of several one bedroom luxury  suites, with glass floor viewing panel and plunge pool.All have been recently enhanced , with brighter more vibrant furnishing .

Facilities and Activities
Facilities include infinity pool, restaurant choice, sunset bar,  spa. Dive centre. A real highlight of the resort is the Marine Ecology Reserve, designed to create active awareness of the rich marine life beneath the sea. Gayana is the perfect place for snorkelling or diving adventures.

Chic Check – Sister hotel to Bunga Raya, Gayana has a more simple even more rustic  theme, reflected in the price, and offers a more marine eco experience. There is a speedboat shuttle between the two resorts, takes about 10 minutes. As with Bunga Raya, you do need to be comfortable with a natural jungle backdrop. Choice of restaurant, with the seafood option particularly suggested. The immediate beach is rocky and small, but more expansive just to the right, plus of course you can take the shuttle to Bunga Raya where you can enjoy probably one of the best beaches in the entire  region.
