Bunga Raya Resort, just like its namesake of a beautiful and fragrant hibiscus flower, is a luxurious exotic island escape. The secluded island hotel on Gaya Island in Malaysia is framed by a virgin jungle and white sand crescent shaped beach with stunning corals offering 48 plush and very intimate timbered Borneo style villa accommodations with private balconies and astounding views from the terraced hillside. Recreational and leisure amenities include a gorgeous 25 metre infinity pool, a lavish hilltop spa, a diving centre with PADI certified instructors, clubhouse with pool table and board games, books and DVD library, jungle canopy walk, beach volleyball, kayak, and snorkeling facilities. There are two excellent restaurants within the plush island resort – Koi Restaurant offering contemporary European bistro fare by the poolside and koi fishpond and Pantai Grill by the water’s edge serving succulent grilled meats and seafood. Drinks may be enjoyed at Latitude Bar. Wine connoisseurs would be impressed by their underground Wine Cave that doubles up as private venue for intimate gatherings and holds more than 4,500 bottles of fine wines and an impressive cigar collection.
