A tranquil little island off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Eastern Malaysia, is home to a surprisingly pleasant eco resort. Gayana Eco Resort is located on Gaya Island in Maloham Bay within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine National Park in the Northern Part of Malaysia’s Borneo Island. A collection of 44 thatch-roof villas some of which built over the water on stilts, where the sound of ocean water lapping literally under your feet create a soothing atmosphere. Gayana recently underwent an extensive renovation to reposition the resort as a luxury hideaway, and the end result speaks for itself.
