Tel: +60 88 380390


Just off the coast of Borneo is Bungaraya Island Resort, a luxury getaway perched on the hillside of Polish Bay on Gaya Island. This award-winning and secluded resort features 48 timber villas, in a traditional Borneo architecture, surrounded by lush rainforests and stunning views of the glimmering blue waters of the South China Sea. 

To reach this island paradise, you’ll just need to make your way to Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal, a short drive from the airport. From there, it’s just a matter of hopping on the next boat out to Bungaraya. You can easily arrange your transfers through the resort.

Why we like it

Cocooned in pristine rainforest, this secluded resort makes you feel miles away from Kota Kinabalu, despite its proximity to Kota Kinabalu, you’ll feel a million miles away on the white sand beaches of Polish Bay.

Relax on the secluded beaches, pamper yourself with a massage, scrub or facial with the world-renowned Kerstin Florian products, then wind down at dinner with delicious meals accompanied by an amazing selection of wines from award-winning Koi Wine Cave that houses over 4,500 bottles.

It’s perfect for

FIT, GIT and Honeymooners.
