    Lonely Planet review

    Fifty-two stunning villas stuffed with modern amenities and 'island-chic' touches make up posh Gayana. The Bakau (mangrove) Villa overlooks a tangled flooded forest, while the Palm Villa's deceptive simplicity masks steps that lead into the warm heart of Tunku Rahman's protected waters.

    While here, check out its inspiring onsite Marine Ecology Research Centre (MERC), which restores and rehabilitates different forms of marine wildlife; it has had great success in propagating giant clams. Also don't miss the excellent new Alu Alu Seafood restaurant, the sibling of the famous haunt in KK, with fish fresh from its organic farm.
