The Bunga Raya Island Resort has become the
latest property in Malaysia to join Preferred Boutique.

bears its name, the Bunga Raya Island Resort is a secluded island
hideaway of just 47 timbered villas, set on a coral reef island

named for a different species.
“At its heart, Bunga Raya is truly about
preserving and coexisting in our natural environment,” said
General Manager, Jonathan Wise. “We have designed every aspect of
the resort to allow our guests to immerse themselves in a
pristine, unspoiled and luxurious island paradise and just like
foot prints in the sand, it remains untouched when they depart
leaving exactly as they found it, for the next visitors to enjoy.”

dwellings, steps from the beach, to opulent 3 bedroom
