See how perfectly simple luxury can be at Gayana Eco Resort. Teetering on the edge of a tropical jungle paradise, and perched above the azure waters of a rare coral reef.

Your inner flower child will delight at the overall eco-focus of the resort.
Few remaining places on Earth offer access to both an unspoiled tropical jungle and vibrant coral reefs. With the sparkling waters of the South China Sea before you, and untrammeled jungle behind you, you'll truly feel you have stepped into a vanishing world of tropical paradise.

The resort's thatched huts perched above crystal blue waters are deceptively minimalist. Inside, you'll find all the modern conveniences, including air conditioning, WiFi access and luxury bathroom amenities. Mornings, you'll awaken to the sound of gentle waves lapping below, while evenings promise a stunning tropical sunset from the privacy of your own terrace.

Help staff at the on-site marine ecology research in their ongoing restoration of the nearby coral reef, borrow a kayak for a self-guided paddle, or simply pamper yourself in the Solace Spa.
