Thinking to go somewhere for staycation and looking for some new destinations? Flying over to Sabah and enjoy a picturesque staycation at the Gayana Marine Resort at Kota Kinabalu is the best way to mark year 2020.

With 45 overwater tropical villas, each villa is designed to take in the lulling sounds of the surf beneath the villa. Gayana Marine Resort boasts of vistas of the aquamarine sea as well as its mangrove forest or tropical jungle.

At the heart of the resort is the protection and regeneration of the island’s precious marine gem — the on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre — which propagates endangered giant clams and coral reefs. As it is rare to have a marine ecology research centre in the resort, guests should not miss exploring this mesmerising underwater world.

The Resort’s three dining venues offer a wide variety of gastronomic delights, including western fusion food with a distinctly Malaysian twist, and a wide selection of spectacular sunset cocktails. With an emphasis on its farm-to-plate philosophy, the menus feature fresh organic seafood and vegetables from Borneo Eco Fish and Green-O’s. Mouth watering dishes include Malabar Curry Tiger Prawn, Oxtail Assam Pedas, Deep Friend Grouper with mango and nam jim sauce; and much more.

Besides water activities, a range of fun activities such as fun walk, blow pipe demonstration, weaving, napkin folding, pizza making and cupcake decorating are all organized with Covid-19 safety considerations in mind, making your staycation a safe and an unforgettable and memorable one.
