Why We Love It

  • Luxury island resort newly opened June 2018 and features only 13 one-bedroom oceanfront villas
  • Once featured on the hit reality series, 'Survivor' as a secret location
  • Known for its "its therapeutic natural volcanic mud" (Sabah Tourism), the island has since been nicknamed 'Survivor Island'


Pulau Tiga was first made known to the world when it was featured as a secret destination on the hit television series, 'Survivor'. While it has since been known by travelers and locals as 'Survivor Island,' a luxury stay hasn't been available until now.

Newly opened in June this year, the 5-star Borneo Eagle Resort boasts just 13 villa units, each a spacious 172sqm fronting the ocean.

As an alternative escape away from the bustle in the main city of Kota Kinabalu, this resort now offers members an exclusive half board stay which includes daily breakfast and dinner, as well as pre-dinner cocktails.

Blessed with a private beach area, the island resort has other regular facilities such as a swimming pool, an in-house restaurant, spa, as well as a fitness center. Non-motorized water sports are also available for rent.

It's sister property on Gaya Island, the Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa, opened back in 2010, and also holds good reviews on TripAdvisor as one of the 'Top 25 Hotels for Romance' in Malaysia (2018 Travelers' Choice).
