Bunga Raya: a delicate beauty

5 years ago

When you step off the boat onto the longest pier youve ever seen, you pinch yourself and wonder whether you have died and gone to heaven. The sand is white, the sea is blue and the cocktail waiting for you at the entrance is calling your name.

The chant of, theres no way this is happening to me goes over in your head countless times as you follow the resort staff to the lobby which faces the clear open waters of the South China sea. So blissful!

Once you visit the island of Bunga Raya, its really hard to get back to reality after spending a blissful week in the sea, sun and sand. With only 50 chalets, scattered throughout the island hilltops, Bunga Raya aims to provide their guests with a quiet and relaxing holiday.

It is a definite holiday destination for couples to enjoy romantic strolls on the beach, to unwind with a massage deep within the jungle or wine & dine with fresh seafood and good wine from their wine cellar.

The resort island shares its name with the Malaysian national flower, and like the hibiscus, Bunga Raya is a delicate beauty. The island is also a home to over 66 hibiscus species and is hoping to continually grow more within the next few years.

A short boat ride from Bunga Raya is the sister holiday paradise, Gayana Eco Resort. For those wanting to get away the demands of modern life, especially with young children, then Gayana is the place to go.

Not only is Gayana a paradise island with chalets right above the waters but it also has an on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre that educates their guests about endangered marine life and Giant Clams, in which they take great pride to protect.

Guests also have the opportunity to help restore the corals onto the ocean floor beds. The resort also has an aquarium and a petting pool where you and your family can hold marine life and adopt your own coral reef.

To get to these islands, its a simple boat trip from the Jesseltons Pier in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, east Malaysia state on the island of Borneo.

If you are feeling as though you cant get away to these islands fast enough, then make your reservations at: http://www.bungarayaresort.com/ and pack your bags, you wont regret it.
