Following the climb up Mt. Kinabalu, we spent two nights at the luxurious Gayana Eco Resort on Pulau Gaya, the island just across from KK and part of the Tunku Adbul Rahman National Park. Did not take too many pictures there as I was often with just a shirt, swimming trunks and sandals so I could jump into the water anytime...

Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal, where we'd take a speedboat for the 10-minute ride to Gayana.

A first view of the place from the "lobby" above water. It is NOT a beach resort.

The whole bay is full of fishes. Giant clams, sea cucumbers and corals on the

Across the bay are mangroves. We would kayak into it later on.

Breakfast delivery vessel for the higher-end cabins.

We found this cat on outside our door. Turns out she lives in the staff quarters..

But didn't stop her from coming inside our cabin for some air-conditioning.

View from the cocktail lounge at dusk. Free drinks from 6-7 every night.

Our friends stayed at one of the cabins on left.

That building on left houses the spa and cocktail lounge.

One of its two restaurants serve Chinese-style seafood.

Just simple boiled shrimp. But the best tasting ones I've ever had.

Humpback grouper (老鼠斑). We were going going all out that night. Dinner for 5 cost about 900RM.

Lobsters in cream sauce.
