Just off Kota Kinabalu lies Gaya Island. Situated within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Gaya is a generously-sized island, tucked away among mangroves, sandy beaches and coral reefs. This secluded island paradise offers luxurious villas, refined dining and a sumptuous spa.
A hillside hideaway
Gaya’s hillside villas are comfortable retreats, combining modern amenities such as Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and flat screen satellite TVs with spacious, opulent bathrooms and furnished outdoor verandas. Villas are furnished and decorated using locally sourced materials to complement the natural island surroundings. Each has breathtaking views, whether they overlook tropical rainforest, mangroves or the sparkling blue ocean.
Infinite dining choices
Enjoy the casual pool bar and lounge area, where you can lunch or sip a refreshing drink by the infinity pool. Or travel to Tavajun Bay, a private beach just a 5-minute boat trip from the resort, where the daily lunch special is served up in this incomparable setting. Book a private dining experience, where the chefs can deliver delicious food straight to your table in the sand, or relish Japanese specialities at Omakase.
Rooftop Fisherman’s Cove offers fabulous views over Mount Kinabalu, and serves up the freshest seafood dishes, prepared with flair and imagination by expert chefs. Feast Village, located by the lap pool, features open kitchens, showcasing a range of tempting dishes from Japan, Korea, Asia and the West, as well as an on-site bakery.
Rejuvenation and relaxation
Spa Village Gala Island is a decadent retreat, nestled in a fertile, sun-soaked island setting. Both the practices and products used here draw on rich, local traditions of healing. The holistic treatments available aim to restore the balance between mind, body and spirit, leaving you feeling uplifted and invigorated. You can return home relaxed and rejuvenated, after experiencing the unique range of award-winning treatments this delightful spa has to offer.

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.
