Gaya Island Resort opens Wildlife Centre

27th October, 2016

By ERIC BAGANG Eric@newsabahtimes.com.my

KOTA KINABALU: The Gaya Island Resort near here has added another attraction with the official opening of its Wildlife Centre.

YTL Hotels executive director Datuk Mark Yeoh said that the resort’s main attraction has always been the nature which includes the sea surrounding it and the jungle.

“In other places such as the Middle East, they had to construct islands and golf courses but here in Gaya Island, it is natural; that’s why we chose to invest here.

“Tourists now are very experience-focused. They want nice experience apart from the good food, comfortable bed and so on, and here in Gaya we have that extra in the form of nature,” he said when met at the official opening ceremony of the Gaya Island Resort Wildlife Centre here on Wednesday.

The centre boasts a compilation of four-years-worth of data on the flora and fauna in Gaya Island. According to Gaya Island Resort naturalist Justin Juhun, the centre complements the guests’ experience where they can get more information on the flora and fauna they see while touring the island.

Sabah Parks deputy director Justinus Guntabid who witnessed the opening ceremony commended the resort’s conservation efforts and urges others to follow suit.
