Eco Christmas in Borneo

Dubai, November 2015: Make a difference this Christmas by preserving endangered marine species all the while staying in a 5-star villa perched on stilts over the South China Sea

Gayana Eco Resort is a luxury resort with a conscience. This Christmas you can participate in hands-on coral reef restoration alongside its resident marine biologists. You can also become the foster parent of a giant clam to ensure it gets reinstated into its natural habitat.
Located in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine National Park, skirted by coral reefs and calm turquoise seas, Gayana Eco Resort offers a diverse range activities under water and on land for adults and children alike:
Become a Marine Biologist for a day  and transfer replanted coral fragments to the underwater Coral Garden or collect coral fragments in the sea and attach them to a biorock structure, snorkel the house reef with an underwater camera or take a kayak trip into the mangroves, explore mudskippers and hermit crabs or trek into the dense jungle. The resort also houses a PADI Certified Dive Centre where both beginners and experienced divers can experience uncluttered dives, as most of the area is closed to the general public.
The Ocean Villa is priced at USD 797 per night for two people  and includes the following:
- Daily breakfast for two at Macac Restaurant or delivered by boat to your private balcony.
- Complimentary deluxe speed boat island transfers from/to Jesselton Point Wharf.
- Welcome drink.
- Free use of all non-motorized watercraft; kayaks, snorkelling, paddle boards, etc.
- Complimentary entrance to the Marine Ecology Research Centre.
- Complimentary Wi-Fi.
- Christmas Lunch on the 25 December 2015.
Inclusive of all available taxes
Gayana Eco Resort offers Halal food as certified by the Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Sabah as well as arrows pointing to Mecca and prayer mats.
