The Bunga Raya Island Resort is a luxurious jewel set on a coral reef island just off the coast of Borneo. A secluded island hideaway of 47 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 centuries 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 traveller.
The Bunga Raya Island Resort features private balconies offering jaw dropping vistas of the beach below and the South China Sea beyond. It is located just off the coast of Borneo. The Kota Kinabalu International Airport, second busiest airport in Malaysia, is located some 10 minutes away from the state capital of Sabah.
Superior Villas are spacious one bedroom villas presenting 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.
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.
Plunge Pool Villas are spacious villas featuring serene scenes of the beach and sea from the edge of your very own private plunge pool and open deck balcony. Complete with deck chairs for lounging and an indulgent bathtub for freshening up in a spacious bathroom.
Tree House Villa, designed for guests interested in a little more than the usual dose of privacy, are perfect for honeymooners and couples. A jungle walkway leads your ascent to your own romantic haven, partially hidden by trees. An outdoor jacuzzi, or a private jungle plunge pool and a lounge, truly set the tone for an intimate experience high up in the tree tops.
2 Bedroom Deluxe Suite is the perfect available option for families. This suite is surrounded by thriving jungle and amazing ocean views. It is equipped with a king and twin-sized bedroom and a large, luxuriously relaxing balcony furnished fully as an outdoor living space.
3 bedroom Deluxe Suite, located on the highest point of the resort, offers an incredible view of the ocean. This massive two-storey hilltop villa features a spacious master bedroom with its own giant whirlpool bath, matching downstairs bedrooms, a wrap around deck and a private plunge pool.
Pantai Grill, set right in the sand very close to the water's edge, is a laidback oceanfront dining outlet. Your choice of meats and seafood are grilled as you order. There is, of course, always the option to order other dishes and drinks from our other outlets as well. 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.
The Koi is a modern European Bistro designed with plenty of contemporary flair. It 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.
Pavillion offers private dining. 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 our award winning cellar. This will all be served by your personal butler and experience never to be forgotten.
