The rooms look tired and smell of mildew. The air conditioning unit was noisy which made it hard for us to fall asleep. The food at the restaurant was below average but at least the staff members were friendly. Other than that, I really have nothing positive to say about this resort.

The location of the hotel is great. we had a chalet 5m from the beach. you can start some hiking tours (Mt. Santubong etc...) directly from the entrance of the resort. The rooms and the equipment were below standard. The rooms were big, but the furniture was pretty old, we had a leaking pipe in the bathroom, which after our... More

Damai Beach Resort has an awesome location with majestic Mt Santubong behind and the very pretty Damai Beach and the South China Sea in front, with a commanding ridge stretching from the mountain to the sea to complete the scene. Great place to stay for the fantastic Rainforest Music Festival - only 5 minutes walk away from the Sarawak Cultural... More

I booked a chalet & spent a relaxing weekend at the beach. The place was crowded but it was mostly families. The rooms were spacious & well-furnished. Beds were comfortable & clean. Toilets were also big & well equipped. However, the chalets are in dire need of maintenance. Sockets were falling out of place. Lights were not working. Switches were... More

So we walked up the beach to the food court area which have activities for non guests such as kayaking in sea/ dirt... More
