Very dated and worn requires a serious upgrade, staff need training, but then again nothing is ever open so there is nothing for them to do, ( why is the place so dirty then????). Will not go again & would advise nobody else does until it's tidied up.

We went expecting a fantastic stay given the idyllic setting. The views are incredible but the hotel is really dated, and in good need of repair. The rooms are dirty, the laundry torn, the pool smells of fish and the staff are just not up to it. They are poorly trained and have not the first idea about customer service.... More

A great, sprawling resort in an idyllic setting but with some facilities closed and others run by poorly trained staff. It is quite a spectacular resort, largely open-planned with its own private, pristine beach and big swimming pool. The surrounding area is largely forest. There are good nature walks and Irrawaddy Dolphin spotting but you need to go further afield... More

We were unsure of whether to book the rooms at Damai or at Permai, and chose the latter. Are we glad we did! After settling down at Permai, we walked down to Damai to get some lunch and check out the facilities. The restaurant, pool and cafe was closed for renovation and we couldn't grab even a coffee. It was... More

All is not doom and gloom but the place just needs sprucing up here and there. .. not talking major outlay in some areas either ie replacing attap (leaf) roof on shelters near the pool which are wrecked , lick of paint here and there. .. One very positive note is their restaurant 'ku' ... average price per dish rm... More

My family stayed 5 nights in this resort and had a very relaxing holiday. The views were spectacular and we loved the infinity pool although a little warm to really cool down. The location was convenient. Next to the Rainforest resort that had a nice cafe and great activities. Our daughters enjoyed the high rope course and we loved the... More

We first came as a family to Damai Puri many years ago. It was vibrant then. Started noticing it going downhill two years ago and this time around. It has gone from bad to worst. Very run down, many of its facilities not opened. Very disappointing!

Unfriendly and non helpful set of staff. Everything don't know or unavailable like umbrellas when it rains. Food is dreadful and many facilities are no longer operational. It's a distant (45km) from the city but the scenery is nice though. Not value for money.

This hotel is in a superb place but that's where the positives end. I bet it was fantastic when new but now it has a down at heel atmosphere to it. It's slightly shabby, run down and needs a load of cash spending on it. The staff are friendly in so far as their language skills allow but for the... More
