The resort occupies a pretty large estate and is situated in a central but secluded spot in Damai. The beach, just by the resort, is the star attraction of the place. We to Damai Beach Resort to get some relaxing time out of Kuching. We booked the balcony rooms. It is a bit of a walk to the pool and... More

My other half and I went on holiday at Damai Beach in October 2015. We didn't know what to expect as a lot of people had written bad reviews (fussy people) and were worried about the weather as it was nearing rainy season. When we got there the staff were fantastic and the whole scenery and hotel were amazing! We... More

Con: Run down. Low service. High price. Small clowded pool. Lots of extra charges for extra pillow, blanket...etc. Pro: Nice nature view around. Walking distance to culture village. 35min from kuching town, can stay at town and have a day trip here.

Our Korean friend with her family came visiting us in Kuching. Many years back her kids stayed at Damai Beach Resort and they wished to stay at the same hotel to recall the good time they had had there. We booked two connecting rooms in a 4-room chalet. It was nearly Christmas day; the hotel was full with mostly local... More

Superb room with superb view. The view of the beach was super fantastic and at night we were lulled to sleep with the sounds of the waves beating the beach. A walk along the beach was nice but had to be limited due to the rough sea.

Hotel lacks of safety. No lifeguard and pool attendant. A child just died at this hotel at the pool side. The pool has no fences to prevent children from accessing the pool if there is no life guard around.

We traveled a little afraid because of the reviews, but pleasantly surprised after our arrival. The resort is not really new, a renewal is needed almost everywhere. The conditions of the rooms, the furniture, the beds could be better for the sheets could be newer and fresher scent, but it is not possible to solve the daily maintenance and cleaning... More

It's been a while since we last stayed here. For a change, we have requested for the chalet. The single block chalet has 3 rooms which can be connected to each other, with 2 rooms facing the sea. Room 313 was bigger than the Room 314, but both had big bed. The big room has a "full settee" while the... More
