We stayed here for two nights after climbing Mount Kinabalu, so we were in need of some serious R&R. It was also the day after my 30th birthday, and my partner had proposed on top of the mountain... so we were also looking for a special experience. Gayana resort and the wonderful staff exceeded our expectations on both counts :)... More

The office at Jessleton Point Ferry Terminal is air conditioned and a pleasant place to check in and to wait for the boat across to Pulau Gaya. Our arrival was lovely, with a myriad of staff on hand to welcome us, assist in disembarking the boat and handling our luggage. Cold flannels and a welcome drink awaited us in the... More

I would strongly recommend staying at the Gayana Eco resort in the palm villa rooms. It was truly amazing, spacious and private. Staff were fabulous and went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable. Food and beverages were great; catered for everyone. We did go swimming but we had to be very careful of the jellyfish.

We stayed for four nights at the Resort. It looks very nice as all the bungalows are built over water. It also not very crowded, since you have a lot of space and there are not that many bungalows. the name "eco resort" put's one on the wrong foot. The only two eco-things we found wat a green leave, tucked... More

Dear Paul_V_Alkmaar, Thank you so much for your feedback. You are absolutely right that preventative maintenance is extremely important. The cracked floor boards has been noticed, we are just waiting for new ones to arrive. The same is the case for our AlangAlang roof straw. Rubbish does from time to time enter our waters and we do attempt to remove... More

It's my first time spending so much on accommodation. Check-in took a while because it was crowded, but the experience was alright. Then we were brought to the island by boat, and been hold on in the restaurant with a lovely welcoming drink. When we get into our room, we realised we got the room facing the rain forest, while...

This is by far one of the best resorts I ve been to in Malaysia. The staff are extremely welcoming, warm and sincere . If you are looking for some peace and tranquillity, then I strongly suggest this as an option. Another amazing point about this resort is the fact that it just an apprximately 20-30 mins boat ride to... More
