Love the evening ambient and for sunset view, yet weekend can be loaded with big crowds! You may always plan your trip to Sarawak Cultural Village before heading here as both are located within the same vicinity.

Sigh. First of all, the ATM - only one in the area - doesn't accept MasterCard. Nice! The second closest is in Kuching. And 7/11 doesn't take card payment either. Won't they lose a lot of customers this way? A terrible and noisy place with an amusement park feel to it - not in a good way, as it actually... More

there are food court, souvenir shops, 24-hour convenience shop, backpackers hostel, restaurant and bar. The food court serves freshly cooked local cuisine and western food with reasonable price but closed at 10p.m.. There are Hornbill monument near the beach. Location in front of Sarawak Cultural Village.

Having nasi lalapan ayam with milo jagung - nice combo. The lalapan ayam was nice and the price is affordable too. Having our late lunch here after whole day inside the cultural village.

We were staying near by and had lunch here twice, once at the food court and the next time at the bar over looking the beach. There is a couple shops, tour booking shop and a 7-11 that was not to well stocked when we were there, no beer available. Good for a break from the hotel food and the... More

Plenty of choice, not pricey, great when you have hungry kids! But be warned: it closes early, they're already putting the shutters down at 8pm!

We stayed at Damai Beach Resort and Damai Central is an easy few minutes stroll from the resort. The food at the resort was quite disappointing and Damai Central more than made up for it. There are a few shops there, including a 7 eleven. Escobar restaurant is very nice, perched above the beach with nice views with the beach... More

Food court was a relief after the stuffiness of the adjacent Damai beach resort where we stayed. 7-Eleven typically pricey and not well stocked. We were in a tropical area yet they stocked no mosquito repellent or insect bite cream... duh. Couple of gift shops, of course same stuff much much cheaper at the markets and in town.

There are a couple of restaurants, shops, an amusement arcade, launderette and our favourite, the hawker style food outlets and dining area. This is a great way to sample local and other dishes and drinks, all freshly prepared and very low cost. Loved it!

This little food hall was only completed in the last 3 years and seems to have picked up popularity with both the locals and tourists. The food is cheap and easy and fresh. Like an oasis in the jungle
