The Getaway


Country: Borneo, Malaysia
Design style: Contemporary yet respectful of local Sabahan traditions and the natural surroundings.
Ambience: Relaxed, welcoming and serene.

Fringed with a golden sandy beach, rocky coastal outcrops, and surrounded by coral reefs, Gaya Island Resort is in a unique location on Pulau Gaya, the largest of a cluster of five islands that form the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, a natural conservation area off the coast of Borneo. The hilly island landscape is covered with lush tropical rainforest and an abundance of flora and fauna. And to complete this perfect setting, visible in the distance, is the stunning outline of Mount Kinabalu.

Gaya Island Resort is the perfect launching pad to discover Borneo and its intrepid surroundings; idyllic golden sand beaches, dive sites of spectacular underwater havens and untouched tropical rainforests, home to many rare species including the Orang Utan and the proboscis monkey.

Each 47 square metre villa features a spacious bedroom, a writing desk, a safe box, a flat screen television with satellite channels, a large open bathroom with an oversized bathtub and two vanity units, and an outdoor veranda with day beds.

Spacious, tactile and modern yet respectful of local Sabahan elements, each villa uses local materials that blend harmoniously with the natural environment. Villa interiors are designed with a contemporary elegance and offer a variety of views including mangrove, canopy, tropical rainforest and the South China Sea.

With views stretching across the South China Sea, and where the silhouette of Mount Kinabalu can be seen on a clear day, the Kinabalu Villas provide the best views in the resort. Perched on the sloping hillside, the luxurious 188 square metre two-bedroom Suria Suite elegantly occupies two levels and offers glorious uninterrupted views of the ocean and Mount Kinabalu from a large outdoor verandah with daybeds.


The regional cuisine and exquisite fresh seafood prepared by Gaya Island Resort’s skilled chefs is a play on the senses, setting the stage for you to recount your day’s adventures. Dine at leisure on your personal verandah space in-villam enjoiy a picnic at your chosen location, or gather around the crackling barbecue pit on the beach at dusk. Gaya’s restaurants include ‘Feast Village’  – an all day dining experience that offers the diverse Asia-Pacific cuisine; located right by the lap pool it offers stunning views of Mount Kinabalu and the surrounding beach.

Its seafood restaurant – Fisherman’s Cove – perches atop the resort’s rooftop. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted in this restaurant and it has a formal dress code of shirt, full-length trousers and shoes for gentlemen and smart casual wear for ladies.

Light refreshments and drinks are served in the Pool Bar and Lounge, overlooking the resort’s infinity pool and floating cabanas.
