"Nice trip in Gaya Island"

Nice place for vacation,and kind staff. Help me a lot ,try their best to meet our satisfaction,nice talking with Rudi😊 There are lots activities for fun,nice beach,offer good snokelling ,but not too much time for us to enjoy them,suggest spend more than 4 days to stay. The dinner is delicious with seafood and wine. 很适合度假的地方,这里人都很好,乐于帮助旅客解决问题,尽量让我们住得舒心。环境很好,海景很美,晚上也能躺着看星星。这里的活动有很多,每天的活动表都不一样,我们用了一天时间去玩浮潜,其他活动没有机会试了。所以建议要住4天左右才好,专业浮潜不错,安全,教练带着我们去看到很多生物,下次试深潜。还有室外晚上的西餐很好,听着海浪,月亮底下享用晚餐,很舒服,偶尔还可以遇到野猪在旁边路过,很友爱,海鲜很新鲜,美味,赞!

"too long"

the best thing about Gaya island is the staff. They couldn't have been more helpful, particularly Jack, Mary, AG, Debora. Nothing was too much trouble. They insisted on moving me to a more accessible room when I had an attack of gout which made all the steps impossible. Thank you! Rooms are excellent Food a bit indifferent The entertainment by the overpriced bar in the evening is awful!!!.Please sack the couple who caused me to endure it.

"Excellent experience"

The resort is a perfect nature experience with very friendly staff and incredible location. The rooms are very comfortable and calm. Every evening you hear the voice of jungle. Food is very delicious and we recommend strongly a dinner in fisherman's cove. Thanks to the resort team for a memorable vacation in 2017

"Really lovely resort but with hindsight we went for too long."

We returned from Gaya Island Resort just 2 days ago, having spent 8 days there. It's a beautiful resort and the staff are without exception superb - professional, helpful, knowledgeable and at pains to ensure you have the best experience possible. We stayed in room 825 and although a bit of a walk up the hill to get there, we felt it was possibly the best accommodation there was with really fantastic views. The accommodation is well thought out and supplied with plenty of toiletries. The bed is huge and very comfortable, as is the relaxing seating outside on the balcony. In terms of eating, the buffet dining room offers a huge choice of foods each mealtime, all well presented and served by staff who clearly take pride in their work. We were on a B&B package so ate here every morning then also on 3 evenings. We ate in the bar one evening (food only served till 7pm) and at the Japanese restaurant 1 evening which I enjoyed more than I expected. However our favourite place to dine was the fish restaurant where we enjoyed 3 lovely meals. We also used the spa which as expected was also luxurious. The negative for us was the overinflated prices charged for food, drink and travel to the mainland. We'd read comments made by previous travellers about the resort being pricey but didn't appreciate quite how expensive it was- £10 for a very small glass of wine - I don't think we've ever drank so little on holiday before!! Unlike the majority of guests who combine this resort with other resorts/sightseeing, we were here for the entire duration of our holiday and this with hindsight was a mistake. We'd planned to do a few trips to the mainland but the 10 minute boat ride cost £35 for 2 of us each way and then because the excursions we were interested in returned to Kota Kinabalu after the last scheduled boat back to the resort, we would have had to have paid £140 for a private shuttle back across. So for example, going to the night market (essentially a free activity) would have cost us £175 for boat transfer. As a result we didn't do any trips, felt disappointed we'd travelled such a long way not to experience any flavour of local life and actually started to feel bit trapped after about 4 days. I know management will reply that the fact it's an island pushes costs up and I accept that up to a point but we still felt exploited, which was a real shame. If the costs of the boat weren't so prohibitive, I imagine many people would choose to eat on the mainland for a fraction of the cost - which is probably why the boat is so expensive! We're a captive audience. We did the nature walk which was informative and enjoyable - but I found it a bit hard going at times! My husband also did the guided walk to the private beach whereas I took the boat! I actually preferred the resort beach though so we only went once. Our snorkelling trip was cancelled due to rough seas but I was pleasantly surprised how good the house reef was - although weather conditions did affect visibility at times. Hubby (who by now was feeling very caged in!) also did canoeing and meditation. I read 4 books. Don't expect to see Proboscis monkeys there but there are long tailed macaques who can be quite bold in their hunt for food and drink. Also snakes, spiders, lizards etc. Think really carefully if you have any mobility issues as there are lots of changes of level, steep slopes and steps. I feel genuinely bad putting any negative comments on here as the staff are so first rate but I feel I have given an accurate review of our stay there.


From the minute we entered the check in office of Gaya Island Resort at Jessleton Point I had a very good feeling! This was only to be enhanced over the following six days and nights of our stay. The resort is not visible from the mainland so when the speedboat rounds the bend and you get your first view of the resort its a real "Wow Moment" which gets better as you get closer and you can see more. Friendly faces greet you at the jetty from where you are escorted to the main reception an open sided building with plush couches and various activity desks. We are welcomed with a cool drink and face cloth and we then waited a short time to be met by a member of staff who gave us a personal quick tour before escorting us to our villa. Our Kinabalu villa was situated up above the main complex at one of the highest points of the resort from where we had sweeping views of the both the resort the China sea and the lights of kota kinabalu in the distance. The Villa's are amazing, you enter into the bedroom area first which leads to a study area/walk in wardrobe and then at the rear a huge bathroom with the biggest tub you will ever see and sinks on both sides. The Villa is an amazing place to rest relax take a break from the beautiful sunshine and of course get the best sleep before waking up to breathtaking sunrise over Mount Kinabalu,which lies in the distance from the comfort of your own day bed on your balcony. There is a great selection of restaurants on Gaya. Feast Village for the most amazing breakfast's lunches and evening buffets. Fisherman cove the a la carte restaurant upstairs. Omakase a Japanese themed restaurant, The pool bar and the private beach bar. We ate at all of the above during our stay and were never disappointed, the attentive chefs are always on hand to advise and tailor your meals whatever way you want. Included in our package were six fifty minute spa treatments at the Spa Village which we made total use of. The spa village is very cleverly located at the far end of the resort away from any noise or disruption. This has the effect of creating a luxury calm retreat where you can truly switch off and indulge in your treatment of choice. All treatments start with a foot soak and scrub which is amazing. We also made use of the free yoga and guided mediation classes on offer. Thank you Leslie for your patience with us novices. The main asset of Gaya Island Resort is its staff! Rarely have I met such warm beautiful genuine people always ready with a smile and friendly greeting. They went out of there way again and again to make sure we were having a good time and made my Birthday one that I will never forget. Special thanks to Jack on reception, JJ in the kitchen for the best omelettes. Marneh in Fishermans cove for her super service and of course our new best friend Irene in the Spa Village for all the laughs. The only bad thing about Gaya Island is that you have to leave!! Its a magical special place surrounded by wildlife and jungle where you can truly get away from all the pressures of modern day life. I hope that I get to experience it again in the future. Keep up the good work guys and girls.
