The accommodation at Bungaraya Island Resort is superb, luxurious and spacious, with a fantastic jungle and soft sand beach setting.
Description & Location
Like its sister hotel Gayana, Bungaraya Island Resort is located on Gaya Island, but on the opposite coastline. “Bunga Raya” means hibiscus in the Malay language. The setting is wonderfully natural, with all of the accommodation set on the hillside looking down over a totally ‘private’ soft sand beach.
A 25-minute speedboat ride from the pier at Kota Kinabalu, with each minute taking you away from big city development to something totally at one with nature.
Bungaraya’s 47 villas are all stunningly designed, with dark wood floors and terracing, and subtle lighting that perfectly adds to the romance of the resort.
All of the villas are sea facing ( see note below ), through jungle gardens and have been recently enhanced with brighter more contemporary interiors. Incredibly spacious starting at 70sqm, with a choice of Superior Rooms and even larger Deluxe Rooms with integrated living space, both of which are dotted around the hillside- sea facing, rather than sea view due to the jungle foliage.
There are Deluxe Rooms with plunge pool located close to the beach, and an elevated Tree House which has Deluxe Rooms with a jacuzzi or plunge pool and fantastic views overlooking the resort.
In addition, you have a few Two and Three Bedroom Family Villas.
