Outstanding resort in a beautiful location
Quality of the offering was outstanding - well designed, spacious rooms (we had a 2 bed apartment set-up), one of the nicest rooms we've ever had

We were just about the only ones there, very convenient boat transportation from KK, very quiet
We loved it. It was a quiet place and perfect for a weekend getaway.

Excellent hotel
Good location, excellent service, Close to wild animals
Staff are friendly and try their best to help. Boat transfer is available to go to Gayana Eco Resort and so we went there for Marine Eco Centre. However, the reception staff at Jesselton Point told us no boat transfer was available between Gayana Eco Resort and Bunga Raya Island Resort. The water quality at Gayana Eco Resort was quite bad, I am glad that I have booked Bunga Raya Island Resort. I will definitely stay in Bunga Raya Island Resort again and bring my kid there to get close to the wild animals.

Old but satified
Infinite Swimming pool, Staff is helpful and polite, the spa is awesome
We were informed by the staff that it was VERY low season when we arrived. Only 4-5 villas were occupied. We enjoy the silence from the Villa. The staff are really helpful and cheerful. We found more staff than the customers XD We enjoy to swim at the swimming pool very much, as we found the sea wave is quite large so we didnt get into the water. However the water quality of the beach was various. It was quite good in the first two days. The water was pretty clean. But when we checked out on the third day, we can see many rubbish in the sea, i think it was affected by the sea flow. actually there is already a net to prevent the rubbish getting into the area of villa. However the wave is too big. many rubbish flew into the beach. Overall, we think the Room is pretty old. But the environment is good. The staff is really nice.
