The customer service is the best among all the resort I've been. No problem at all for checking in and dine in at the restaurant. The food was good. The massage at Santubong Spa & Retreat at the hilltop was good. The superior poolside room is a bit old, can listen very well noises from outside the room and upstairs.

We stayed here in August 2014 in the Baruk Suite. The Suite is beautifully designed with its coned-shaped roof, timber-lined ceilings, dual balconies, open deck area. It's such a dream location. Wonderland. The view from our balcony, of the mountains and sea side by side; just remarkable. But it's such a shame being in disrepair. Bathrooms are old and tired.... More

For more than twenty years, since I was in High School I'd been visiting Damai Beach Resort and they always gave the best service ever. Friendly staffs, always present a simple smile that make everyone days cheerful. Also nice and helpful and even some staff remember seeing me yearly. The room is cozy and warm too. A must stay hotel... More

During the mid-late 90s, I used to often visit this resort as a kid/teen. Since then, nothing much has changed. It still looks and feels the same as it was TWENTY years ago. As most have wrote, the entire resort is in urgent need for a major and significant makeover. When I was there in February 2014, there were renovations... More

This was my 3rd visit to Damai Beach over a period of 7 years and I was pleasantly surprised by the improvements made to the resort. I stayed in a Challet and I was happy to see that the rooms had been refurbished and the decor was pleasing on the eye and relaxing. The rooms looked refreshing and no longer... More

I would not recommend this hotel at all. We were booked and had paid for 8 nights and only stayed for 2. The hotel is in the worst location with absolutely nothing around except Damai central next door which not clean and hardly anything open. The path that gave you access to Damai Central had a gate across it which... More

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

If you are looking to stay in luxury this is not the place but if you want a relaxing stress free holiday in a great location this is the place. Yes it need work but they are trying there best to fix everything Great for family holiday that will not cost a fortune. I would go back anytime.
