Borneo Accommodation,

Bunga Raya Island Resort


The Bunga Raya Resort is a beautiful island retreat situated on Gaya Island not far off the coast from Kota Kinabalu. The private resort borders a stunning white sand beach and offers superb five-star facilities and service but benefits from a peaceful and personal ambience. The resort is ideal for couples and families looking for some relaxing downtime after exploring the rainforests or mountains of the mainland.

The name translates to hibisucs, representing the wide variety of hibiscus flowers found around the resort. Due to its wild situations, guests can see considerable wildlife within the resort, including monitor lizards; bearded pigs; snakes; civets and birdlife.

Accommodation is in elegant, spacious wooden villas fitted with smart furnishings and facilities such as LCD flat screen TV, DVD player, radio, complimentary (except wine) minibar, room safe, free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Each villa has a living room, separate bedroom, en suite bathroom and a private balcony, some of which give sea views. Facilities and services at Bunga Raya Resort include 24-hour room service, a large infinity swimming pool, spa, and gym. Activities include kayaking, diving, snorkelling, ziplining and jet skiing.

There is a good choice of dining options available catering for all palates. The Pantai Grill is set right on the beach and specialises in grilled meat and fish for lunch and dinner, while the Koi Restaurant offers a wider range of cuisine and is open all day. The hotel’s underground wine cave contains an extensive selection of fine wines to accompany your meal.

There is a small coral reef nearby offering good snorkelling and island tours and hiking are also available.

Fabulous. Great from start to finish. Nothing too much for staff. Food great. Very relaxing. WiFi limited to food areas but that improved the holiday. Great range of free water sports.
