I always love island trips regardless if it’s a half day trip or overnight. Planning a holiday to the islands is always the best feeling ever. Not only because it can relax your mind, but don’t you just like the sea? As I always say, “it’s another world down there”.

The Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa is now offering day trips to visit their beautiful island. Inviting crystal clear sea water, you will be able to spend an hour or two having snorkelling activities as well as kayaking. This day trip package also including lunch!

Set right in the sand very close to the water’s edge, Pantai Grill is a laid back oceanfront dining outlet. Enjoying your lunch while looking at the beach, you will notice the colour of the sea water slowly changing from light bluish to greenish. Now, by looking at the pictures that I have posted is actually what they serves on the menu.

No food tasting for me 🙁
Well, I have to be frank. This time, I didn’t try out the food. Yes, I know, it’s shocking, but I am having a bad sore throat and I barely can talk. I am actually whispering throughout the whole trip, but indeed lucky that everyone still able to understand what I was saying. However, I have to be frank that I did try the Peppermints Panacotta. As usual, I will give my rating – 5/5 for this this dessert. It’s amazing and I didn’t regret trying it even though I am sick. The Peppermints Panacotta is smooth; down to your throat! The minty taste gives you a cooling feel, especially when you are obviously at the island in this kind of beautiful weather. Pantai Grill is available for lunch and is open until sunset.

What’s the price?
It cost RM145 nett for an adult and RM95 nett for a child. Not bad for a day trip, right? And everything is included in this Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa trip.

Comparing the prices with the nearby islands, it is almost the same. Mostly, these are the things that need to be considerate when you go for an island trip– Return boat transfers, Sabah Park fees, food and activities. Normally, these are charged separately if you travel and arrange on your own at the Jesselton Point.
