Gayana Eco Resort is a luxury hotel at Pulau Gaya, featuring thatched villas that spread out across the sea from the island's fringe. The villas provide boutique accommodation with plush amenities and comforts - most units with direct access to the water from their own private dock to snorkel and explore colourful coral reefs in the immediate surroundings. The resort also houses the Marine Ecology Research Center open to visitors which stores endangered live starfish, clams and corals for restocking purposes. Access to the resort from KK City is by speedboat from the hotel counter at Jesselton Point, which takes about 15-20 minutes. The hotel is a sister property of Bunga Raya.
