Nestled on Gaya Island’s crescent Malohom Bay off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia Borneo, Gayana Marine Resort is a picturesque destination that strikes a balance between ecology and indulgent luxury.

Our extraordinary 52 overwater tropical villas boast vistas of the aquamarine sea, mangrove forest or tropical jungle. Each abode is designed in such a way that enhances the lulling sounds of the surf beneath the villa.

At the heart of the resort is the protection and regeneration of the island’s precious marine environment – the on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre, the only of its kind on an island resort, propagates endangered giant clams and coral reefs.

The resort’s dining venues present palate-pleasing and soul-satisfying local and international cuisine, while the spa beckons with an array of pampering treatments.

Recreational Activities
Gayana Marine Resort offers a host of fun and exciting activities for you to make the most of your time with us on this island paradise.

Save A Baby Giant
Established in 2007, MERC started as a learning and educational centre to raise awareness about the marine ecosystem but has since grown to address the increasing threats on marine life on the island.

A key initiative is the Giant Clam Restocking Programme, which has and continues to successfully propagate these endangered shell creatures.

Another is the Reef Regeneration Programme, set-up to repair coral reef damage on the island. Guests can participate in replanting corals in the reef, or get up close with sea creatures from seahorses to bamboo sharks.

Coral Planting
To restore damaged coral beds is a long and slow process, and guests can take part in our efforts by planting a coral fragment. You will receive a certificate and updates throughout the year on your coral’s development.

Sea Activities
The resort’s waterfront teems with thriving corals and small wildlife such as starfishes, crabs and resident fishes. You could also take to the beautiful waters in a kayak, or go paddle boarding. Equipment for the activities are provided free of charge.
