Tucked amidst protected mangroves, sheltered coral reefs and curled around the pristine sandy coast of Malohom Bay rests Gaya Island Resort. Set on an island within the protected Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, discover a sanctuary nestled in the hillside of an ancient rainforest with a stunning outline of Mount Kinabalu on the horizon. With its youthful vibe and sun-dappled moments, this beachfront resort blends harmoniously with the natural environment featuring a collection of hillside villas with views that range from mangrove forests and the surrounding canopy to the outline of Mount Kinabalu.
Villa interiors are contemporary and elegant, eco-luxury yet respectful of Sabahan elements.


Immerse yourself in the vibrancy, scents, textures, sounds and tastes of the natural environment and cultural heritage of the region.

Gaya Snorkelling

Explore the hidden wonders of the marine world guided by our Resident Marine Biologist, and appreciate the need to protect our environment. Discover the beauty and intricate life beneath the sea without the use of fins to avoid damage to our house reefs. Snorkellers are limited daily to ensure that the marine life is not overwhelmed by human presence.

Singgah Singgarung Night

Gain insights into the Borneo way of life through a Singgah Singgarung prelude experience that showcases native arts, activities and delicacies before your tribal-style beach mangrove barbecue dinner. Melodious Kadazan music sets the mood as you feast on skewered fish grilled campfire-style and fresh produce served with the famous local rice wine, lihing.
