That's how you live

Nestled in the north coast of Pulau Gaya, off Borneo’s coast, lies Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa. Experience a secluded island hideaway tucked away on a tranquil and hidden bay framed by the crescent-shaped, white sand beach on one side and the centuries-old virgin jungle on the other. The soft lapping of ocean waves, the cool rustle as a breeze blows through a living tropical jungle and the gentle sounds of unseen fauna creates an unforgettable experience for all guests. Terraced into the hillside, the resort reflects the traditional simplicity of the Borneo architectural style, blending seamlessly with the comforts and needs of the most sophisticated and discerning luxury traveler.

The speed boat will take you from/to Jesselton Point Jetty in 20 minutes, which is included in the nightly room rate.
