WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Gaya is a stunning tropical island covered in dense virgin tropical rainforest, and part of Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park, just 10 minutes off the coast of Kota Kinabalu.

History: It was about one million years ago that five islands, including Gaya, broke off the mainland, evidence of which can be seen today in the exposed coastline’s exposed sandstone cliffs, caves, and deep crevices.

Service: Guests may check in at Gaya’s own lounge on the mainland, where they are served refreshments and may use the complimentary WiFi, before being whisked away by speedboat to their private villa.
