Bungaraya is a sheltered island getaway, lying just off the coast of Borneo. This deluxe hideaway is in a hillside location overlooking Polish Bay, Gaya Island. The resort is tucked away among acres of tropical rainforest, with Bornean style, hibiscus-clad villas that overlook a pristine, white sand beach. The resort features a decadent spa, delicious, refined dining and an underground wine cellar bar.
Bungaraya features 48 villas, all named after the various species of hibiscus that can be spotted among the grounds. The private dwellings were constructed along traditional Bornean lines, and range in size and specification from Treehouse and Plunge Pool Villas to Two or Three-Bedroom Deluxe Suites. The Royal Villa is the resort’s showpiece and features a designer kitchen, separate dining and living areas plus two bedrooms and two plunge pools. This villa is also staffed by a housekeeper, chef and butler to cater for your every whim. As a minimum, all villas contain luxury linens, premium toiletries, LCD TV, DVD and Bose stereo, plus air conditioning and a private balcony.
Longhouse dining and drinking
Dining and drinking options at Bungaraya include the Longhouse, Pantai Restaurant and Bar, the Longhouse Wine Cellar and private dining, which can be taken within the confines of your own deluxe villa. Meals make use of local as well as international influences, and all dishes are prepared with the utmost care and attention. Pantai is a relaxed beachside venue specialising in freshly grilled meat and seafood lunch and dinner dishes. By night, the wine cellar is the perfect spot for an intimate evening and also has an outdoor patio.
A fusion spa
The Echo Wellness Spa is a particular highlight of the resort. Treatments such as facials, body scrubs and massages are delivered by skilled therapists, using various indigenous plant-based ingredients and combining Asian and Western spa styles.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
