    Exceptional”

    The reception are exceptional. Once our boat arrives, we are warmly welcome by the resort staffs and managers. Their rooms are set above the crystal clear sea waters, elegant decor and really comfortable. Rooms on the outside have balcony access to the sea. What I 💖 most is their ecology conversation initiatives. Their breakfast is ala carte style, no buffet = less food wastage. This is the first resort/ hotel i visit that keep their salads, yogurts and cut fruits in small standing refrigerator which helps to keep them sanitary and fresh. Rooms comes with water bottles for guests to refill water, fill takeaway drinks and also bring home to use so they don’t provide plastic bottles of water there too. They run a Marine Ecology Research Center in the resort where they work to propagate endangered giant clams, nursing and planting corals in the waters around them. Apart from ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ treatment, guests also get enriched during their stay. 🤩

    Worth every penny.”

    We stayed for only 1 night but I wish we booked for atleast two nights. The staff are friendly and helpful. I don't speak melayu well so it's a plus point that all the staff can converse in English. The GM himself took the time to welcome and send us off to the boat which I think adds to the personalized feels of the resort. We maximized our stay doing all the available activities in the resort. Our room is spacious. I even took all the amenities coz the packaging is so nice. I also love their citronella moisturizer. Food is delicious and fresh. I used to visit the alu-alu farm so I am sure the ingredients they used are also organic. But more than anything, it's the staff that really made our stay more enjoyable. Thank you all and we will be back again for sure!!

    Luxurious yet humble retreat”

    All I can say is everything here is excellent from the staffs to the rooms, restaurant and facilities. Truly 1st class service. I felt very welcomed and would definitely revisit and recommend this resort to others.

    Good service/hotel”

    the hotel and the service is amazing the only thing I think should be improved is the sea have garbage. the first day afternoon we arrived, we saw there are many garbage/plastic bag...etc floating on the sea... i will say it is bad to see it cause the villa is quite expensive. although the second day there is no garbage. but i still think it need to be cleaned.

    Beautiful sea and resort”

    Lovely (and enormous bedrooms) with our own terrace at the back where you can relax. In the more expensive rooms you can get directly into the sea from some stairs off your balcony, which looked nice! The pool was nice although needed cleaning more regularly - there were often bugs floating in it which could easily be removed if someone cleaned the pool with a net every hour. The pool was often very quiet which was a bonus though! The food and drinks at the restaurant are fine but expect to pay European prices. The breakfasts are good with a good variety. Staff were helpful and organised for extra free wifi so my fiance could work, boat shuttles to the Bunga Raya resort (Which has a lovely beach) and a boat back to the main land at a later time than standard after check out. We also enjoyed the free happy hour drink each day

    Awesome location ”

    Wonderfully helpful staff and very accommodating management. The rooms were large, airy and clean. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. All activities were included in the resort so you could use snorkelling gear, canoes and paddle boards. There was a nice jungle trek and a very informative marine eco research Center where you are taught all about giant clams and their role in the ocean ecosystem. Food at times wasn’t as good I I would expect. 45 mins for breakfast, cold bbq and poop shoots in prawns. But the salt and pepper squid was lovely. A very relaxing place to stay with kind, helpful and caring staff and management.

    Paradisiac Stay”

    Extremely nice hotel with the best view, and amenities, and accommodations. The staff is also very very friendly and helpful. You can ask to take a complimentary boat ride to the other resort BUNGA RAYA that has a wonderful beach (careful of the sand flies in the sand). Gayana Marine Resort CACAC restaurant is excellent! I warmly recommend

    Ecotourism at its best!”

    Incredible staff, beautiful rooms, impressive conservation work. Great for snorkeling, lots of biodiversity. We were offered complementary late check out since we had a late flight, and our room was decorated with orchids for our anniversary. Very caring staff with attention to detail. Would love to return!
