Sabah : Delicious Food Galore at Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa

Sabah : Gaya Island

It's been a long time since the last we step our feet on the sandy beach of Bunga Raya. Say 5 years ago?

Depart from Jesselton Point, Kota Kinabalu, it takes more or less 20 minutes to reach Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa, which located on the largest Gaya Island of Sabah.

- Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa -

A familiar bridge while arrived at the island resort. Breezy and relaxing island away from crowded city.

Did I told you that, all of us are able to visit the island resort and even better to enjoy the facilities available as well. Sound interesting and fun right? Yea, I bet you would love to know more of it! Worth for every penny with such excellent hospitality.

- The Beach -

In Kota Kinabalu city itself, we could hardly see such quiet beach now a days, it is frequently crowded with tourists, especially during sunset.

I love to enjoy the breeze, but somehow not the sun. I'm not a good swimmer, how disappointing.

- Infinity Pool -

While having a swim in the pool, we are able to see the infinite sea level. I always admire infinity pool. someday I should visit Bali for that perfect view as well, and for sure with my love one privately. ;)

- The Main Restaurant -

- Wine Cellar -

Having an in house wine cellar would be such a favourable place to be at. A glass or two for the night as well. Bunga Raya Island Resort's Wine Cellar is one of the award winning wine cellar for continuous years.

We were impressed that the wine cellar itself kept more than thousand of wines with price that are more than thousand of Ringgit.

- The 60's Wine -

- The Saturdate -

Three of us hardly see each other at one time now a days, just way busy for life and work.

- The Pantai Restaurant & Bar -

Surprisingly, The Pantai Restaurant & Bar had totally upgraded to another level. It used to be a small outdoor restaurant with a few tables.

Now, it's a new building for leisure and delicious food, next to the sea. Blended in with turquoise colour, mirror of reflection that reflecting the nature from outside to inside the restaurant.

In the other hand, we also had a scrumptious meal with the island resort higher management personnel. I must say that I would really love to return to the island resort for day trip once in a while. Excellent dining experience, thus enjoying their facilities.

- Homemade Bread -

 - Entree -

Seared Hokkaido Scallop, Bell Pepper Coulis

- Refresher -


Cold and refreshing sorbet that loved by many of us. It's delicious.

- Main Course -

Pan Seared Organic Grouper Fillet, Crispy Lotus, Pak Choy, Cherry Tomatoes and Chablis Beurre Blanc Sauce

Fresh organic fish from farm which also known as their sister company. I must say that their fishes are always freshly served.

- Main Course -

Grass fed Tenderloin, Asparagus, Paris Mushroom, French Foie Gras and Red Wine Beef Jus

I believe that the skill of a good chef can be known by tasting their tenderloin prepared. Medium rare tenderloin was just nice for me, topped with French Foie Gras was perfect for me.

- Dialoque of Sweet -

Gold Dusted 
Spinach Opera Cake
Pandan Cream Brulee
Profiteroles Vanilla Ice Cream

There's always a space for desserts in a woman theory. Which one is my favourite? I may say Pandan Cream Brulee and Profiteroles Vanilla Ice Cream!


- Day Trip -

Are you excited to know about the day trip I have mentioned earlier?! 

With RM180.00 per person, we are able to dine in while experiencing all of the complimentary activities at the island resort, including Kayaking (1 hour), Snorkeling and etc. The full list would be as follow.

Worth for every penny doesn't it? :)

Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa are always open for the locals and tourists, with such an affordable price as stated, we are no longer felt that visiting to the island resort are expensive as it look!
