Nestled on Gaya Island’s crescent Malohom Bay off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia Borneo, Gayana Marine Resort is a picturesque destination that strikes a balance between ecology and indulgent luxury. Our extraordinary 52 overwater tropical villas boast vistas of the aquamarine sea, mangrove forest or tropical jungle. Each abode is designed in such a way that enhances the lulling sounds of the surf beneath the villa. At the heart of the resort is the protection and regeneration of the island’s precious marine environment – the on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre, the only of its kind on an island resort, propagates endangered giant clams and coral reefs. The resort’s dining venues present palate-pleasing and soul-satisfying local and international cuisine, while the spa beckons with an array of pampering treatments.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
