To mark its re-opening after the lifting of Malaysia’s Restricted Movement Control Order, eco-luxury property Gayana Marine Resort on Pulau Gaya in Sabah is offering attractive Staycation packages for the weekends from now until the end of October.
A picturesque destination shrouded in serenity and privacy, Gayana Marine Resort comprises 45 overwater tropical villas boasting vistas of the aquamarine sea, mangrove forest or tropical jungle. Each villa is designed to take in the lulling sounds of the surf beneath the villa. At the heart of the resort is the protection and regeneration of the island’s precious marine environment – the on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre – which propagates endangered giant clams and coral reefs. Guests are encouraged to visit the Centre and learn about its marine conservation programs.
The Resort’s three dining venues present a wide variety of gastronomic delights: Western fusion food with a distinctly Malaysian twist including wood-fired pizzas in the all-day dining Macac Restaurant; and spectacular sunset cocktails in the Latitude Bar. 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, in dishes such Malabar Curry Tiger Prawn, Oxtail Assam Pedas, Deep Fried Hybrid Grouper with Mango and Nam Jim Sauce, Green O’s Winter Melon Soup with Free Range Chicken, Red Dates and Goji Berries and many more.
Besides water activities, guests will be kept fully occupied with a choice of activities such as a fun walk, blow pipe demonstration, weaving, napkin folding, pizza making, cupcake decorating, bartending and more all organized with Covid-19 safety considerations in mind.
Covid-19 safety measures set in place include individual life vests and masks, temperature scanning, wide availability of hand sanitizers, social distancing protocols, resort app in place of printed room collaterals and blackboard menus instead of hard copies. Guests are also given personal aluminum water canisters to refill at water points. All villas will be completely sanitized after each check-out for three days in addition to frequent sanitization of all facilities and areas.
