"Fabulous 5 Nights at Gaya Island"

My husband & I spent 5 nights here at the end of a trip to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur & Borneo. We had done a bit of research beforehand & knew what to expect so therefore we were not disappointed - far from it. We received a friendly welcome upon arrival at Jessleton Point & every member of staff we encountered from there onwards was very polite, friendly & professional. Check in was very smooth with a member of staff allocated to each party & we were escorted to our Kinabalu Villa where the lady showed us around & how to work the air-con. (Unfortunately I cannot recall her name) The rooms are gorgeous, very spacious and the bath tubs are huge. There was a great choice of food at the restaurant & we ate 2 nights at Fisherman’s Cove which was lovely. Yes it is a more expensive resort but we knew that in advance so no big surprise to us. We had been allocated a complimentary nature walk, snorkelling session, return boat transfer & mangrove kayak which we took advantage of - apart from the kayaking as the water level was too low. We found the bar service great with Rudy being exceptional. One night we witnessed a group of Chinese guests who were sitting in the bar being very rude to another member of staff who had asked them very politely to tell their children to stop throwing pebbles into the bar area. The children were running around the bar area & throwing the large ornamental pebbles into the bar with one just skimming past my leg. The member of staff acted most professionally & eventually had to go & get his supervisor to speak to the group. This type of behaviour from guests in unacceptable & the barman’s handling of the situation is to be commended. We both had treatments at the Spa which were amazing. The Spa itself is beautiful & well worth treating yourself in. This was the perfect end to a once in a lifetime trip & I would certainly recommend staying here.

"Absolutely Amazing place with the best hospitality"

We went to Gaya Island for our Honeymoon and we had the best time ever. The hospitality there is second to none and I have not experienced hospitality better anywhere else. The rooms were amazing (we got a free upgrade) and the rooms had everything you needed and more. The place was absolutely beautiful from the beach, the food, the people there and the service. A special thank you to Ramesh, Elmey, Jan and Scott for making our experience unforgettable along with all the other staff members there. They provided us with such amazing service and care that we felt so well looked after. The food was outstanding in all the restaurants, the activities were well thought out and carried out, the spa village is a brilliant experience. Loved everything about it. Would recommend anyone who wishes to have an amazing holiday of sun sea and sand with people who look after you to go to Gaya Island Resort. Pritesh and Bhavita

"Excellent from beginning to end!"

Everything from arrival to departure was just great! The best thing of all was the staff, right from the super cool GM, Dennis, the F&B manager Ramesh to the thoughtful Abby who taught the bead handicraft workshop who actually repaired my daughter's beaded bracelet and left it at the reception to pass to us upon our checkout. The lunch at the private beach, Tawajun Bay was excellent too, being able to dine at the beautiful and quiet beach. The coral reefs outside the resort itself was great. We saw large schools of fishes, clams and corals. The nature trail with Haziq and Rashid was also educational and fun. Thank you YTL and your wonderful team. We can't wait to be back to your beautiful resort soon. Indeed Gaya Island Resort is worthy to be added into your group of fine boutique resorts around the world!

"Trust the mixed reviews - it's not 5 star yet!"

We spent a lot of time reading the reviews for Gaya before and after booking. It was clear that this place had the potential to be amazing, but there were frequent average reviews. As a result, we added the hotel onto our trip knowing it would be beautiful and restful, but expected a few negatives - which was fine by us. Arrival- The extremes of Gaya were evident when we got off the boat. One staff member gave another family the resort tour, clearly aware it would leave us waiting at reception as he seemed rushed and hot! Although we were given a drink, this wait was just over 10 minutes. One of his colleagues apologised for our wait, stating it was 'one of our problems' at the hotel. During our wait, I watched a gent make a complaint that there were no diving masks at the Diving desk. The pony-tailed employee insisted this was a problem with the resort and not his company. Fair enough, but what wasn't was the way he spoke about the guest under his breath to his female colleague as he walked away. Room - the reviews are spot on. Massive and luxurious...but the air con needed fixing and the headboards scratched and in need of repair. I read about both before travelling, so perhaps expected. Fisher man's Cove - young staff making a real effort to be professional and elevate the service, was really sweet to see as they were clearly nervous. Lovely food too, but once again there were imperfections. Between sets, the hired entertainment slipped away, but yet still in view of half the tables - the singer texting away and the keyboard player having a power nap! Checkout - we headed down to breakfast at 8, having packed our things and naively left our bags on the bed, ready to depart at 10. We returned to the room at 09:30 to find our SLR camera taken from my bag and 200 ringgit gone. The door had been locked. A run down to reception to report the issue wasn't the best way to end our stay and Scott tried his best to calm me down and took notes of the items we had lost. He promised that there would be an investigation that would take 48 hours and then he'd be in touch. The resolution - Scott failed to get in touch as promised and I contacted him the week after, once we'd got home. I then spoke to Dennis, the manager, and basically, 4 months later, we'll get nothing in terms of compensation because we don't have the camera receipt. Although the woeful communication from the hotel left a bitter taste, I can assure you the hotel would have scored 3 anyway. A peaceful place with amazing scenery and some staff are trained up/naturally operating at the level expected. Plenty to improve upon though before this can genuinely be classed as a 5 star resort.

"Disappointment an understatement "

We arrived excited by our first visit to Borneo and having read reviews on TA and small luxury hotels of the world . On check in we were told the room we had booked 3 months previously was unavailable . Ok we thought we will be upgraded as these things happen. Well we were dramatically downgraded even though ,as we found out the hotel was full. We also could see the room we had chosen was laid out for a honeymoon couple - but this was denied. The member of staff said he would come back in 10mins but after 20 mins we left and went for lunch . After lunch we went to reception to find our member of staff had gone off duty . The new manager eventually said he could offer another room but with a long walk from the facilities with steep steps . When asked why they do not supply a buggy - I was rudely told the hotel encourages walking ! To which I replied great unless you have arthritis - so do not come here if walking up and down stairs is a problem . The fabric of the hotel both inside and outside is greatly in need of renovation and attention to detail. My first meal was drenched with MSG which when you are bitten by sandflies because of their environmental policy not to use chemicals seems a touch bizarre. Still hopefully matters will improve . The views are ok if like me you like watching cargo ships ! Sadly from HK
