The resort also features a gift shop, offering a selection of beach wear, leisure wear, handicrafts, postcards and snacks. Conveniently located at the reception lobby, it is popular with guests and visitors alike. Gayana offers non-motorized watersport facilities including canoeing, snorkeling, sea kayaking and scuba diving. Island hopping, fishing and crab catching can also be arranged upon request. As the forest is virtually at your doorstep, you can also go jungle trekking. The challenging 6 Km trial leading from the resort through the thick canopy of high dipterocarp trees to the nearby Malohom Beach is well-marked and can be explored with a guide or on your own.

The resort's ground is also a sanctuary to many of the island's wildlife such as the pied hornbills, long tailed macaques, monitor lizards, wild boars, green imperial pigeons, jungle rats, geckos, snakes, Buffy fish owls and various species of insects. So keep your camera handy…… you'll never know who or what you'll bump into. However, it is important to remember to keep your distance. Do not feed or provoke the animals in any way.

Another important reminder….. Do keep all doors and windows or at least the nettings closed when you leave your room or when you go to bed at night. You surely do not want any uninvited furry or scaly visitors in your room! (just in case)

Swimming in the open sea can be fun, but do watch out for stonefish, sea urchins, scorpion fish and sharp rocks.
This is because the resort is sitting on a reef. Do wear shoes or any other suitable footwear if you insist on swimming in the crystal clear waters. The Nature Pool is just as fun!

Gayana offers you the unique opportunity to observe the various species of giant clam and marine life housed in 19 display aquariums at close range at the Marine Ecology Research Centre (MERC). The MERC focuses on the conservation, rehabilitation and restoration of the coral reefs and its key organism, the giant clam. Several interactive programs are currently being offered to interested guests and visitors, including the Marine Ecology Seminar and Field Trip, Reef Check and Adopt-A-Coral Program. Feel free to talk to our MERC's manager, Mr. Wilson Alex, who is also our resident marine biologist to find out more about the centre and the programs available.

Just minutes away from the bustling city, Gayana offers a secluded island escape, designed and operated with nature in mind. Gayana features 22 semi-detached over water chalets built on timber stilts constructed out of sustainable local woods with thatched roofs.

On the secluded cove of Malohom Bay in Pulau Gaya (the biggest island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marina Park, off the coast of Kota Kinabalu). Access is by dedicated slow boats which operate from Jesselton Point (a newly re-branded Sabah Port Authority ferry terminal as we used to know) directly to the resort. Boat journey takes about 30 minutes.
