Island holidays in Malaysia

Distinctly Borneo on Gaya Island

Borneo seemed to me a destination so beautiful, yet always out of reach somehow. Little did I know that I would be spending the first three months of 2013 on the third biggest island in the world, surrounded by a rainforest over 130 million years old.

Gaya Island Resort, Kuta Kinabalu

Gaya Island Resort captures the most precious natural and cultural elements of Borneo. Situated just 10 minutes by boat from Kota Kinabalu, is the largest island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. Covered with dense unspoiled, tropical forest, staying at the Gaya Island Resort can be both one of the most relaxing or actives stays that you can experience surrounded by the marine epicentre of the world.
