This secluded resort is nestled amongst the tropical undergrowth shaded by mangrove trees within Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Featuring a selection of villas and suites scattered along the coast and suspended on the hillside, Gaya Island Resort is an exclusive island retreat benefiting from amazing views of the South China Sea and of Mount Kinabalu silhouetted in the distance.

Look out from your private balcony over the panoramic landscape stretching out into the horizon at the Bayu Villa. Nestled on a hillside under the verdant canopy of the surrounding rainforest, these villas offer excellent amenities and facilities for maximum comfort and convenience including complimentary Wi-Fi, bathtub and shower, independently controlled air conditioning and private terrace. Just a short walk from the beautiful alabaster sand of the Kinabalu coast are the Canopy Villas. Each villa is adorned with natural wood furnishings and neutral tones creating a fresh and bright space for relaxing and entertaining. The private balcony offers amazing views of the South China Sea and the surrounding mangrove trees.

Indulge in a mouthwatering selection of cuisines in the Feast Village, serving up an array of dishes inspired by Asian-Pacific, Japanese, Korean and Western Cuisine. Enjoy a casual lunch or cocktails at sundown at the Pool Bar and Lounge featuring a swim up bar serving refreshing drinks and light lunches and snacks.

Take some time out for yourself and visit the Spa Village for a day of indulgence and rejuvenation. Allow the expert therapists to relive you of all of your stress and tension and leave you feeling refreshed and re-energised.
