As the days grow shorter and the wind blows stronger, winter is inevitably upon us, especially here in North America. With only about a month before the winter holidays, many are looking to vacation at potential sun destinations for some much needed rest and relaxation. Gayana Eco Resort in Malaysia seems to fit the bill as it rests at the edges of a lush jungle forest on a coral reef island off the coast of Borneo. Doesn’t that already sound exquisite? What’s even more appealing is its commitment to eco-tourism, evident with its on-site Marine Ecology Research Centre that proactively is committed towards saving endangered giant clams and restoring natural coral reefs.
Visitors to the resort are greeted by the Marine Ecology Research Centre that is home to a variety of marine life to see and touch.
For someone like me who isn’t the best scuba diver, their ‘touch tank’ is such a great opportunity to be able to see and touch these amazing species without having to dive underwater.
Other than the typical spa, kayaking, diving, jungle trekking and dining activities, the Gayana Eco Resort also allows visitors to take part in their Reef Restoration Programme, where guests are given the opportunity to replant replenished coral back into the reef or see first hand, how the Giant Clam Propagation Programme is helping to sustain these endangered species.
So when you are planning your next vacation, consider a place that will help you make a difference in the world!
