Description & Location
The Gayana Marine Resort is located on Gaya island, just 15 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 here, although Kota Kinabulu has a surprisingly good selection of mega shopping malls!
It is eco themed , with the emphasis on nature both on land and sea .
The 44 rooms are built on stilts in traditional Malay style, and either face the jungle, lagoon or are overwater. A more 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 contemporary furnishing but still reflecting a Sabah influence .
