Overlooking the China Sea, The Gayana Eco Resort pledges to protect its share of Mother Nature with a vision to provide guest with an exceptionally high international standard of hospitality in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner.

Located at the edges of a lush jungle forest on a coral reef island off the coast of Borneo, this resort has 44 tropical villas over the water that are architecturally designed to enhance the soothing sounds of the surf below.


Spend your days here relaxing in the sun, take a trek though the thick jungle or take a dive to view the oceans treasures. And after a long day, dine out at one of their three fabulous restaurants serving up some of the world’s best seafood along with special touches of Malaysian cuisine.
