I agree when I hear that the place has such incredible potentiel! We stayed (2 adults and 2 teens) at the Damai beach resort for 4 days at the beginning of july, in a lovely chalet. The reviews were not great but we were pleasantly surprised. The chalet may not have the latest furniture but it is very charming, clean... More

We are a family of 5 with 3 boys in their 20's from England. We chose Damai Beach Resort as it seemed to offer activities for our boys. and a nice place to relax. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be much on offer. They tried to play tennis but the rackets and balls were in such bad condition they were... More

Great location for families wanting to use a beach and the pool. Unfortunately, the upper level pool was dirty and had a lot of mould on the floor - this could easily be cleaned however the mould was present each of the 6 days we were there. The chain fence around the bottom pool is a bit odd - I... More

This place has such incredible potential. We reserved a Baruk Suite and got the one we asked for - a gorgeous unobstructed view of the South China Sea and Mt. Santubong. The Baruk Suite is a spacious roundhouse with a wonderful balcony and a ground floor patio complete with a counter and bar stools as well as table, chairs, and... More

Their restaurant provided terrible service, we request more than 5 times to provide us fork n spoon, but they never provided us. And they seem like they have this kind of policy call "service foreign first" what ever foreign request, they will provided to them first. So please think twice if u wan to come here.

Arriving here can be disappointing - building works, no vibe whatsoever. However it fronts onto a nice beach and there is a beautiful infinity pool at the top of the property. It's spectacular. Get a room upgrade with a sea view and it adds up to a very good deal.

We only visited for a day, we did not stay overnight. The poolside area is quite modern, has many facilities and has been recently renovated. The pool itself is large and the entire pool area is attractive. The beach is right in front of the hotel, situated in a small bay and with nice sand and great views. Overall the... More

Damai Beach Resort is not a resort. It's more like a local community hangout where anyone and everyone from Kuching comes for the day to have a picnic, use the pool, showers, towels and anything else they can get their hands on. Damai Beach Resort is more like a maxed out holiday camp. We paid over 300RM a night for... More
