Accommodation & Facilities

There are multiple types of villas available, all of which have their own en-suites as well as a private balcony (some with direct access into the ocean). From the outside the villas appear to be traditional huts but when you enter there is a whole world of luxury.

There are a huge amount of amenities available at this lodge from the on-site spa, the marine ecology centre- dedicated to clams as well as the PADI diving centre.

There is Wi-Fi available in most areas of the lodge, a laundry service and conference rooms are available to hire.


Breakfast is included with your villa, but for lunch and dinner there are three restaurants located within the lodge to choose from. Alu Alu Seafood restaurant uses only the freshest ingredients for its menu, or you can even choose from any of the live options within the 28 tanks surrounding you. There is also the Macac Restaurant which serves more of a Western menu with its own Malaysian kick to it.


There are numerous activities available during your stay at the Gayana Eco Resort; there are many local guides who know the area inside and out who will take you Jungle trekking in the surrounding areas. There is also the opportunity to do water sports however; as it is an eco-resort they only promote non-motorised sports such as canoeing and kayaking.
