Hotel is located right next to the beach and with a wonderful view of the sunset. Damai Central is located right next to the hotel where you can find a local food court, two restaurants and a 7-11. Just walk towards Sarawak Cultural Village/staff quarters - then you can't miss it. We stayed at a superior poolside room and they... More

A few things are excellent like the location, the beach and the chalet. However, the room was aged and not very clean. You can see rubbish and durst down the bedframe, as if it was never been cleaned.The mattress was not very spine friendly and the spring was quite hard. I think they need to change them. It spoiled a... More

My friend and I did not know we need to pay for the entrance fee as it was our first time visiting Damai beach. So as we walked towards the beach, a lady that worked as a janitor near the swimming pool started screaming at us rudely while aggressively pointing at us. As that happened, a security guard approached to... More

Damai beach resort has been around for many years but they seriously needs to be refurbished like the old Damai Lagoon. We stayed in the chalet several times and what is nice is that it comes with 2 queen size beds. The rooms are still lovely but just feels old. The pool is clean the time we were there. A... More

Every extra amenity needs to be paid!!! What kind of a 4 star hotel needs their guest to pay for just an extra bath towel? It's ridiculous! The room looks really run down. Not to mention that the housekeeping staff couldn't handle the stress of managing a frustrated guest who needs an extra towel!!! Extremely disappointing and I will never... More

Once a very glamorous resort no doubt, but even the staff tell you it's 'very old now' and there clearly has been little serious investment for years except to the pools. The top pool is wonderful under the scented frangipani trees and is very clean. But there is no waiter service, and you can't even get a drink. The lounger... More

I was very disappointed with the hotel facilities. This is the first time we were experienced staying in the hotel that the extra amenities have to be charged per night. If the hotel provided us a good quality towels, I don't mind to pay for it but the hotel provided old and smelly bath towels. Even the very basic amenities... More

Damai Beach resort, was the favourite place to go vacation since i was little. The place there was wonderful. When you reach the resort, you will have like a freedom feel because of the sea, wind and spacy landscape. Check in, was like normal, need to wait about 15-20 mins depending on the people and holidays. Room was okay, still... More

We checked in 2 pool side room in Apr 2015. Upon arrival, we noticed the wooden floor are covered with a layer of dust with noticeable dust balls at wall corners. So we called the housekeeping to request for assistance to mop the floor. 2 young local janitors arrived at the doorstep with only 1 unit of dry mop. No... More
