          It wasn't extra-ordinarily luxurious which is what I would expect for the price we paid. The food and drinks were extortionately priced and the hotel was good but it just looked tired, old and rundown. It wasn't good value for money.

          Perfect Eco Hotel, slightly poor execution. ”
          The hotel is located on a separate island from KK town and has the perfect setting for an Eco Hotel with room built atop hills and surrounded by trees. But in the 3days we were there, the technician came four times to fix the toilet, telephone and air conditioning.

          We requested agoda our transport from kk airport to the jetty. You charged 144 rm for one way. On our way back, we took a taxi, we knew it was only 30rm from jetty to kk airport. It is too expensive to take your transport. There is more than 100rm difference.

          Great room, great view but it makes us felt like being trap”
          We arrived at Bunga Raya Resort anticipating a blissful getaway but it was dissapointing overall. While the island and the room are great. They left a batik his & her for guests as a gift which is a nice touch. The rooms are built with your privacy in mind. There is even a small bottle of bugs/sandflies repellent in the fridge for guests usage. The free access to non motorised water equipment is welcome and the infinity pool is refreshing. There is no private boat but a scheduled boat to access the island. We were not in all inclusive package, hence subjected to roti canai that cost as much as having em in New York. We won’t mind as much if they only have ONE OVERPRICED restaurant but at least make the foods great or in-par with the pricing but the Rendang dish my bf ordered (please note that he is French) and his review is, its same quality as the office canteen rendang. As a Malaysian, its difficult to tolerate overpriced and sub-par foods. The breakfast was dissapointing. My suggestion to guests are, please bring your own foods. The staff are not very well coordinated, the staff that welcome us explained there is a complimentary cocktails during dinner but the dining crews have no idea bout that at all. Don’t expect wine list. Somehow we felt there will be charges for every lil needs while being trapped in an island with only one resort and having no options.

          Not worth it”
          We went during the rainy weather which was partially our fault for not researching the weather conditions. For 3 days we were stuck in our rooms, the sea was awful and we only came out for food. The food was insanely expensive, beef rendang was about 60+ and it's about 4 times more cheaper normally. Other than that, the staff were welcoming and very helpful. Facilities were old.

          Actually I'm so excited to check on this place with my gf,arrived the location ...staff services was great & the dining place & foods was great too. Unfortunately in the middle of night,I was bitten by a centipede...a quiet huge & in red colour around 3am..Me & my gf can't sleep anymore and she was panic.we called the receptionist requested to send us to the nearest clinic but the nearest one will be in kk city..so we have to take the boat and back to kk town.The doctor gave me an injection,and the hotel side informed their manager to call us,but at the moment...we didn't receive any phones call yet or their concerning about this matter.A bit disappointed holiday. I hopefully this hotel can manage well with their pest control to avoid all this things happen again in future.Guys,just imagine if you have kids? I think it's too dangerous .

          Amazing Place to Stay!”
          We stayed at Bunga Raya for 3 nights, and really enjoyed it! The bungalows are huge, with large balconies and a lot of space inside. They are very tastefully decorated and overall we were very impressed with them. There are 2 restaurants on-site, both of which served good food for prices that were respectable. The staff are by far the best thing about the resort, as they are incredibly friendly and helpful. Whether it's cleaning the beach, working in the restaurant, or driving the buggies around, they were always smiling and making our stay enjoyable. We ended up wishing we stayed longer!

          Two nights at Bunga Raya Island Resort”
          My wife and I stayed at Bunga Raya for a relaxing end to our two week holiday in Sabah. Once we emerged from the floating ocean waste near the water villages and turned around the far end of the island we found a totally different scene, it was fairly clean and the island forest dominant. We were disappointed that we spent some time swimming in the bay expecting coral reefs, only to find out on pour departure that the 'real' reefs are on the Sapi Island side of Gaya Island. We regret not arranging a boat trip around, or hiking all the way over the other side and snorkeling there, then catch a boat transfer back. Apart from that the facilities were first class, the staff very friendly and the location quite private.

          NOT A 5 STAR RESORT”
          This was our 2nd visit to Bunga Raya Resort. Stayed in the plunge pool villa. But this time was very disappointing. Firstly we didn't have anyone collect us from the airport as arranged. Once arriving at resort we found the water to be dirty and full of rubbish. Breakfast on the 1st morning was nice - service and food very good. But 2nd & 3rd day breakfast was terrible, no staff asked us for our order or even for coffee or tea, even though there was plenty of staff around. Food at the resort is very expensive 19 RM for a can of Coke ($6) 241 RM for grilled fish ($80) 1st night we asked for fish to be told it will take 45 mins. Ordered beef instead which was still raw inside and took 40 mins anyway. 2nd night went to dinner early hoping to order grilled snapper, which we did. Only to be told 10 mins later it wasn't available after taking our order. Worse thing about the resort was on the 2nd day we realized we had BED BUGS in our room. We had bites all over us, at first we thought they were mosquitoes bites because they were rampant thought the resort. We informed reception and asked for bedding to be changed. Another night and we were still attacked by the BED BUGS, so we knew they were in the mattress. At checkout I asked the girl if they knew about the BED BUGS because they must have had other people complain, but she said she was new and didn't know. We had booked a late checkout for 3:15 pm (paid $350 extra) and also a private boat ($70) at 3:30pm. The boat didn't arrive till 4:20pm I think the hotel forgot to book us a boat and we nearly missed our flight.

          From the moment we arrived at the ferry terminal, the staff were so friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a Beachside Villa with the plunge pool, and our hardest decision was whether to swim in the ocean (about 20m) or just go for the easy option of the pool (approx 5m from bed). Couldn't recommend this place highly enough for couples. We were on our honeymoon and it was perfect. Would go back.
