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

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

We had just stayed there and found that some money went missing from our wallets. RM600+ in total including one Aud$50 note.The thieves knew leaving some cash behind it wouldn't be too obvious. We knew we wouldn't get any compensation because we knew it would have been hard to prove. There were no CCTVs around and the resort was filled... More

As we pulled up to the resort I had a bad feeling. The receptionist was very hard to understand as she spoke so quietly. After a long check in they finally gave us our keys to the room which was a far distance from reception. We had ordered a large double and were given two standard twin beds. The room... More

This is set on a small bay on the South China Sea. The water is fantastic and safe to swim - sometimes bathtub hot. The setting is superb - the bay is arced by mountains. The resort is a bit tired, but quite OK. Get a coastal rather than hillside room as there are no food facilities up there while... More

All staffs there are friendly and identify us using our names......amazing that they... More

This resort is bit away from Kuching city. Location is excellent on hills. Beach is very good, neat and clean. Food served is very good. Hotel staff is decent and cooperative. Swimming pool is also very good. Good place to enjoy and relax with family. I liked this place. I have stayed here two times.
