Gayana Eco Resort, Sabah
Gaya is the largest of five islands in Kota Kinabalu’s Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. A total of 52 overwater bungalows sit inside Malohom Bay on its eastern shores. Inside this eco-friendly resort, guests have views of either the mangroves, jungle or the South China Sea. But the luxurious experience isn’t the only factor driving tourism. The on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre focuses on regenerating and preserving the region’s coral and endangered giant clams. Expect the ultimate relaxation, pampering at the spa, and world-class food at Gayana Eco Resort and the chance to learn about critical conservation efforts.
