My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon tour of Singapore and Borneo. This was by far our favourite resort of the trip (but by no means the most expensive). I still find myself daydreaming about being back here. The resort is set in a stunning bay and this combined with the small number... More

Myself and my wife stayed here the week before Christmas. The place is like a desert island with a tropical rainforest backdrop. The staff are truly dedicated to ensuring you have great service and all with a friendly smile. The room we had was set on the beach and had its own plunge pool which was great to sit in... More

Came here for the dive package. However, when we got here they told us that it still monsoon season and visibility was poor. Felt like I was had. Otherwise luxurious accommodations at this well maintained resort. Rooms have all the amenities including TV w DVD player. Beautiful pool adjacent to the beach. Food was good but noticeably western.

We went in October 2014 for a four night stay. The resort and the people were great. Beach was clean and water clear. Would return for sure. You can also access the other sister resort via a boat. Kids did the zip lining in the rainforest which they loved.

My favorite place in Malaysia. The bed in our villa was huge and extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was also beautiful with fantastic herbal toiletries. A fresh fruit plate was waiting for us when we arrived. The staff were extremely friendly and actually got to know us; we really liked talking with all of our servers, who constantly went out...

A truly spectacular site for a tremendous resort. The staff at Bunga Raya are particularly friendly and helpful, Fauzi deserves special mention, this man made every effort to make this a truly memorable stay. My family and I stayed in a 3-bedroom villa which was superb in every way, we were looked after by all the staff who were friendly,... More

I was travelling with my 7 year old daughter, my mother and my mother-in-law to Borneo. We spent the first 3 nights at the Rasa Ria, which I knew from a previous trip. The surprise therefor was the Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa. It was absolutely wonderful! Very authentic jungle feeling, wonderfully kept grounds and a pristine beach. Staff... More

We really enjoyed our six nights here - first drinks every night are free and the food is pretty amazing. The water at the beach so beautifully crystal clear and just the sounds of the jungle and the waves to wake you each morning. The staff are super friendly and there really is nothing they won't do for you. Only... More

We spent 5 days at the beautiful Bunga Raya resort at the end of a hectic two weeks in Borneo. The resort was excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The room was fantastic. The grounds colourful, the people very friendly. Had two days diving, wasn't brilliant but never the less very good, whilst my wife enjoyed the... More
