Raya Island Resort & Spa is a luxurious jewel set on a coral reef island just off the coast of Borneo. A secluded island hideaway of timbered villas, the resort is tucked away on a tranquil and hidden bay framed by crescent shaped white sand beach on one side and the century’s old virgin jungle on the other. Each private villa is rough-hewn and hand-crafted by local tradesmen, terraced into the hillside reflecting the traditional simplicity of the Borneo architectural style, blending seamlessly with the comforts and needs of the most sophisticated and discerning luxury traveler. Private balconies offer jaw dropping vistas of the beach below and the South China Sea beyond. A dedicated hilltop spa, with exotic private spa pavilions, blends the very finest of Traditional Asian and Western treatments which capture restorative powers of indigenous plants and oils.
Dotting the hillside scaling up towards the center of the island, these spacious one bedroom villas present an appealing mix of quiet privacy and either views of lush tropical jungle or the ocean. Every Superior Villa is built with the same standards, but each offers a different and unique vantage point of the resort's many alluring sights. They are equipped with an LCD TV with satellite and DVD player, in-room safe, air conditioning, mini bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, and complimentary bottled drinking water.
Deluxe Villas provide views of both the jungle and the ocean, and are ideal for small families or groups of friends owing to the extra space. A separate living room extension is equipped with a second entertainment system, making for a simple way to simulate the leisurely pleasures of home. The extension may also function as a second bedroom with the optional addition of a bed. They are equipped with an LCD TV with satellite and DVD player, in-room safe, air conditioning, mini bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, and complimentary bottled drinking water.

Designed for guests interested in a little more than the usual dose of privacy, the Treehouse Villa is perfect for honeymooners and couples.

Set right in the sand very close to the water's edge, Pantai Grill is a laidback oceanfront dining outlet. Your choice of meats and seafood are grilled as you order. Pantai Grill is available for lunch and is open until sunset. Couples interested in more private dining arrangements can choose to enjoy their food at one of the several over-water pavilions located nearby, which create a romantic atmosphere that makes for a more intimate affair.
The Wine Cave is literally an underground wine cellar that stores over 4,500 bottles. Built right under The Koi, it also houses an impressive collection of cigars, which can be enjoyed at an adjoining outdoor patio. A special lounge and furnished table settings also make it a prime and deliciously stylish venue for private events.
A modern European Bistro designed with plenty of contemporary flair, The Koi is housed at the resort's heart and serves as its main dining outlet. The restaurant takes its name from the dozens of scintillating exotic fish that inhabit the pond just behind the establishment. The resort's swimming pool is located in front of The Koi, and you're welcome to order snacks and chilled beverages to enjoy as you indulge in a refreshing dip. The Koi is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.
Have a romantic dinner in a specially decorated beach pavilion. Your chef will tailor a menu to your liking and match it with wine from their award winning cellar. This will all be served by your personal butler, an experience never to be forgotten.
