KK : Day Trip to Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa, Pulau Gaya

- Our trip with VLOG -

Lucky us that we were invited to have a luxurious day trip to BRIRS on last Saturday.

Many familiar faces bloggers whom we knew each before and the trip such an enjoyable one with them and furthermore, services provided by BRIRS are good! Thank you! :)

- All those Happy Faces! Reunited! -

We departed from Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal at 10.30a.m. and arrived at BRIRS, approximately 30 minutes after (11.00a.m), their jetty looks perfect with all the over-water pavilions along the bridge. It is quite romantic that I think I enjoyed that place much. In fact, we may have the opportunity to dine at the pavilion but with early preparation in advance. ;) It was lovely and it's just breath taking scene every where around the resort.

- Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa -

A warm welcome by beautiful native ladies and explanation were made as well. :)

"As sensual and exotic as the hibiscus flower that bears its name, Bunga Raya Island Resort is a romantic and luxurious jewel set on a coral reef island off the coast of Borneo. A secluded island hideaway of 48 timbered villas, the resort is framed by white sand beach on one side and the centuries old virgin jungle on the other. Hillside private villas reflect the simplicity of the Borneo architectural style." - BRIRS

And here are what we did during the resort tour! Do enjoy!

After we completed our resort tour and lunch, we went for snorkeling and kayaking. Well, unfortunately I was anxious while I was snorkeling half way... I'm not really good in swimming. From what I heard, some of the them went to see the clams! And it was beautiful!

So, sitting by the beach was great for me.

And our trip ended sometime at 3.00p.m. :)

Well, kid you not! The price are totally worth for every Ringgit paid for such a beautiful beach/ resort and non the less, the food, especially dining beside the beach. Amazing view and what an excitement while we were there, and non the less the people whom we are going with plays a huge part as well.
