Hot on everyone’s lips as THE honeymoon hotspot for 2014/2015, Borneo is the ultimate destination for couples looking for a wild adventure in untouched paradise. There is no better way to rest weary legs from an exhilarating stay with the Orangutans in the Sabah jungle, than a week’s total chill at Gaya Island Resort on Pulau Gaya Island. This eco-friendly all villa (apart from one two bed suite) property is accessible only by boat and located just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu. Nestled into the rainforest clad hill side, it is a natural sanctuary waiting to be discovered.
Despite being in the middle of … nowhere! The food at Gaya Island Resort is gourmet to say the least. It would be virtually impossible to find fresher seafood than at the resorts rooftop hangout ‘Fisherman’s Cove’ or experience a more romantic evening together than at Tavajun Bay, Gaya Islands private beach, just a 5 minute boat ride away.
No stay at Gaya Island would be complete without a visit to the Spa Village. Just moments from the main resort, yet hidden amongst the mangroves, this haven of tranquillity offers a unique spa experience amongst the elements, where mountain, forest and sea come together. Each treatment room differs from the next and the spa menu has been carefully designed to reflect the rich Sabah culture of healing and relaxation.
