Gayana Eco Resort, Gaya Island, Malaysia
Gayana Eco Resort rests serenely at the edges of a lush jungle forest on a coral reef island off the coast of Borneo. 52 overwater, tropical villas are architecturally designed to enhance the soothing sounds of the surf below while capturing the enduring vistas of Mount Kinabalu on the distant horizon.
At its heart, the resort is about protecting and re-generating the precious Marine Ecology, and the only such property to feature its own, on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre passionately propagating endangered Giant Clams and restoring natural coral reefs; where guests of all ages actively participate in restoring vibrant life back to once damaged ocean floors.
Striking the perfect balance of forward thinking ecology and indulgent luxury, Gayana pampers both the body and the enlightened soul.
