We spent 9 nights here and loved every minute. The staff are amazing and extremely attentive; particular praise goes to Chef, Steven, Mary, Jack, Jung, Layla and of course Denys the manager. Food was first class with chef always doing spontaneous dishes to demonstrate his considerable skills. The rooms ticked every box and the mobile wifi boxes given to each guest was an unexpected treat ensuring constant access. Fisherman's Cove restaurant was brilliant and a great setting. The private beach is well worth the 5 minute boat trip and the marine centre there is a great touch; Justin keep up the great work! I dived every day with Borneo Dream who operate a desk within the hotel; an excellent company who exceeded my expectations in terms of professionalism and friendly dive guides. All in all, a fantastic experience and has to be one of the very best resorts in Borneo. We would go back in a heartbeat.
"Not for everybody but lovely"
Our first thought on arrival was hated it, pretentious and not for us at all. Basically we are not beach/pool people and there is not a lot to do otherwise unless you want to do paid activities culinary, oils, diving etc. There are a few free like nature trail, Borneo crafts, nature talks. Luckily for us weather was most cloudy so we were able to sit on our balcony instead of being in our rooms. That said we did get the boat into KK and did a walk with the guide as advised not to go alone. Unable to go in the sea as jellyfish a problem. Not advised for people with mobility issues as a long steep walk to top accommodations, need to request ground level only. That said the hotel is immaculate, the accommodation excellent, except the step into the toilet a tad dangerous in the dark. The rooms are fairly spacious, light and airy with a TV, why? There are the usual complimentary bottles of water, tea, coffee etc in abundance plus a pay for bar. Beds are spacious and very comfortable, fans and air con also. Balconies are large with plenty of seating, although cushions are a tad mouldy, we turned ours over to dry out. Food and drinks are very expensive, there is a good of selection but the evening meal was not up to the standards we had at other places. Pool bar also does food till 7pm. Pool looked okay and there are chairs on the edge onto the beach. 4G dongle given on arrival so you have free wifi wherever you go in the grounds. Staff very friendly, efficient and obliging. Don't get me wrong, it really is a fantastic place but be aware of prices, steepness of some villa's and not a lot to do. Also our travel agent forgot to mention the small matter of conservations taxes needing paying on top of your stay 32 MYR pp for the first night then 22 MYR pp for any following night, just annoying to be told we had to pay it as an extra.
"Not 5 star "
I have to say I was a little disappointed with the hotel. Gaya is a beautiful Island and the views from the hotel are stunning. The issues I had was that the rooms are up very steep hills, if u went down the the pool and had forgot something in ur room it stayed their, no way was u walking back to the room unless u really needed to, this hotel is not for people with mobility issues. The rooms are large and have great views but I did have a issue with our outside chairs being dirty and mouldy, which they did try to improve. My other issue is the cost of food and drink, on booking o couldn't find any information on what food cost and I now know why, it's expensive and not good quality. We ate in the fest village which is 125mr pp and is buffet, which had a wide choice but poor quality and most items I had was cold when I went to eat them. The pool bar food is good but still expensive for what it is. The staff where helpful but we had a few issues where we wanted to book something and couldn't or had booked something then it was cancelled. Saying this the hotel is clean and beautiful and I would stay again if the food issue was addressed and the cost reduced. A must do is take the speed boat the the private beach and enjoy the set meal which was by far the best meal we had.
"Great Hotel, People, Food & Location "
Spent 2 weeks here in May and was very impressed with the hotel, the staff and the food. My wife and I have read lots of the other reviews and don't get where some of the comments come from but will provide a detailed honest review below. The hotel itself is very good in both of our opinions and I will detail all elements below. Room We stayed in a Kinabalu suite (room 854) which was great, comfy bed and pillows, large tv with English channels if required, lots of storage space (could do with a few more hangers) very large bathroom area with double bath, large rainfall shower, separate wash basins and separate toilet. Lots of lighting, lots of plugs, hairdryer, good bathroom amenities, lots of towels, tea and coffee facilities, mini bar with soft drinks, beer and wine. Complimentary water replenished daily, turndown service, safe, iron and ironing board on request, telephone, free wifi provided by a 4G dongle that is given to you at check in that allows you to carry this around with you so you get coverage no matter where you are. Lovely outside day beds. The view from our room was amazing with mount Kinabalu in clear view. We also had booked the premium meal plan which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in any of the restaurants and also included house wine, beer and soft drinks. The house wine was nice, Australian Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabinet Sauvignon (If you want fine wines these are chargeable but are available) Boat Shuttle As we were staying for 2 weeks we had 3 complimentary shuttles included but we only used one which was when we did the Sepilok trip, the hotel very kindly didn't charge us for this as it was out side of the normal hours of operation but instead off set the three other complimentary ones against this. The shuttle itself is 10 / 15 mins long and runs at set times throughout the day from 9 am to KK to 9 pm from KK (KK is Kota Kinabalu) Restaurants Fishermans Cove - excellent food (5 courses) amuse bouche, starter, sorbet, main and dessert (freshly cooked bread and olive tapenade also provided). Considering where you are this food is very very good, taste and presentation excellent, service and staff excellent. We had quite a few meals here along with a private meal in one of the Gazebo's where chef Dolis created some local dishes for us including lobster, crab, fish, prawns, octopus, beef, chicken and lamb which was a real treat. The staff also surprised us on our last night with another meal in the Gazebo which was again stunning. The staff at this restaurants were also amazing and so friendly, they made us feel very special. They were chef Dolis, Silih, Xia and Alice, thank you all for looking after us. This is an open air restaurant. Omaske This is the small 10 seat Teppanyaki restaurant, again we went here several times and the food and service were excellent. There are about seven courses consisting of fish, meat, veg, rice, soup and ice cream all delicious and cooked by chef Raycalson and helped by his fantastic team of Elisabeth (fantastic customer service from this lovely lady) Fadli and Fadhyl, again a big thank you for looking after us. I have to mention the way they all handled an issue where the restaurant had been overbooked by 4 people, rather than making a big fuss they just dealt with the issue rearranged the seating and squeezed everyone in, they were really really professional in their approach. Feast Main Buffet Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ate here for breakfast every day and lunch some days. Great choices from all over the globe, freshly cooked pastries and cake, breads, cheese, fruit, juices, Asian options like dim sum, noodles and curries. Live egg station and pancake station. There was lots to choose from. At lunch they do starters, main courses and desserts, again lots to choose from like local curry, burgers, club sandwiches and salads etc. The staff there are again great, thanks to Michellyen (my dance partner) Alvin, Layla, Charles and Hafsah. Pool Bar Open air and overlooking the pool and sea they do a fixed menu of starters, mains and desserts. The food is very good (cooked in main buffet restaurant kitchen) and the staff again excellent (Deborah and Ashida) The staff also bought ice lollies and frozen fruit around the pool area every day which was a nice touch. Staff I've already mentioned the staff but also wanted to mention Ann (from the Philippines) and Shahrul who also were very helpful during our stay. Denys the general manager has a great team and they are a credit to his training and the hotel, thanks to you all for making our stay so memorable and for going the extra mile it was very much appreciated. Spa Excellent service and fantastic massage, I had the 100 minute Indonesian massage which was fab, my wife had a facial also excellent. Wildlife Some reviews state that there is no wildlife and I totally disagree with this, we saw monkeys (tried to get into our room) bearded pigs, water monitor lizards, geckos, spiders, Snakes, box jellyfish, rays, parrot fish, angel fish, clown fish, needle fish and various birds all on the island. While diving I saw a giant Yellow Sea horse, turtles, moray eels, nudibrach, loads of fish and sharks. So in summary there is lots and lots of wildlife there. We also did the trip to Sepilok which was awesome and well worth doing. Other Bits There have been comments and reviews regarding there being lots of rubbish in the sea. While we were there for our 2 weeks we saw this once where tides had changed due to the full moon and then the following day there was quite a lot of plastic bottles in the bay, this was all cleared by the staff within an hour and most people didn't see any of this because it was all done very early (before 7.30 am). My take on this is that it isn't anything that the hotel can control as they can't control people dumping rubbish in the sea (this is a global problem that needs addressing) and they also can't control the tides!!! What they can control and what they do control very well is clearing the rubbish up when it comes into the bay. Summary If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere with very good food, fantastic friendly staff that speak amazing English and are happy to tell you about their beautiful country then this is the place for you. Thanks again to Denys and his team for making our holiday truly memorable.
"Not for the nature enthusiast "
Lovely hotel if you like lying by the pool. Excellent food, nice rooms & friendly staff. Disappointing though if you're coming here for the 'eco-retreat'. 1. The diving was booked out & apparently you had to pre-book (have never had this at another hotel) 2. You can't do any of the walks without a guide & were advised that these only happen at the scheduled times (9am - too hot/late for wildlife, 10+ on the walk and clashes with the sole daily snorkelling trip!). We then found out that this isn't the case & you can book the guides privately From the sounds of other guests feedback, if you enjoy activities you're better going to the Shangri-La
