Those POSH folks over at YTL Hotels and Resorts are about to unveil yet another property that will no doubt satisfy the sun-seeking luxe lovers: The Gaya Island Resort. Set on Gaya Island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park off the coast of Sabah near Kota Kinabalu, the resort features 120 villas and one suite.

The villa exteriors reflect Sabah architecture and use local materials. While there are four different styles of villa, all encompass 47 square meters (470 square feet) of space, and have a writing desk, flat-screen televisions, two vanities, and an outdoor deck with day beds.

The resort will have three restaurants, one of which will be on a separate beach, serving single-dish lunches. There is also a spa, of course, as well as a gym, dive shop, meeting rooms and a library.

To get to Gaya Island Resort, you will fly into Kota Kinabalu, take a 15 minute car transfer to the pier, and then a 15 minute boat ride to the resort.

Gaya Island Resort is set to open on 1 July 2012. See the Gaya Island Resort web site for more information and bookings.
