“Amazing day out the highlight of our stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Had an absolutely amazing day with Eva and Captain Dean on her beautiful boat. It was completely perfect and Eva made us feel so at home there was nothing more we could have asked for. The boat itself is beautiful with comfortable cushions laid out for relaxing and sunbathing, the drinks were ice cold and plentiful and the food was delicious. We stopped off at a deserted island took a dinghy out to look at some caves and swam in the warm waters of our own paradise island. We then returned slowly to Langkawi and watched the beautiful sunset with yet more food and drinks. What made the trip for us though was Eva herself who was so warm and friendly and made us feel like long term friends or family members. An unforgettable experience and we are already planning our return next year.

“Amazing day in Langkawi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Six (plus) unforgettable hours spent on the Damai Indah. From the moment we stepped on board, until we reluctantly stepped off again at the end of a stunning sunset, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Cocktails as we set off, beautiful fresh food for lunch and dinner, free-flow drinks and the ever attentive and friendly company of Eva and Captain Dean throughout. We genuinely felt like true personal guests; old friends renewing acquaintances, even though we had never met before. Nothing was too much trouble. We even have an album full of beautiful photos that Eva and Dean took for us on our cameras while we just had the most memorable of days.

Wondeful scenery, great swimming and cave exploring. Faultless.

We will be back. 100% recommended.

Thank you very much for your great review and we are very happy that you had great day our with us on the Damai Indah. We take great pride to ensure that our guest are treated like part of our family and friends once we meet and greet you at our office at the yacht club and to the point where you come on board on our cruise. We also ensure that the food we served are the freshest that we can find on this island as we do our shopping on a daily basis at the wet market and we only go for what is in season. There are many places in Langkawi that is good to explore from the water and off the beaten track and Damai Indah is one of a kind in Langkawi which offers that. Do come back soon as Damai Indah awaits for your return.

“Another unforgettable day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

After spending Xmas day 2011 with our teenage children on the Damai Indah, we had to return when holiday in Langkawi with friends. We were not disappointed again, Eva, Captain Dean and crew made us feel at home. The boat, food, drinks and hospitality was fantastic. We were this time lucky to be entertained by dolphins as we cruised along. Another day of great memories and we will return again when on holidays in Langkawi. Thank you

“Unforgettable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We had an amazing trip out with Eva and her crew. We were lucky enough to be accompanied by dolphins on the way out to the islands. The food was absolutely superb - full off flavour and something everyone likes. My children and I had great fun jumping off the boat into the beautiful warm waters and were given the chance to canoe around some nearby islands. The overall surroundings were picturesque and truly made the day. We were given a mini tour around the clusters of islands and learnt all about the caves, stalagmite/stalactites and wildlife in the area. A truly unforgettable experience, well worth every penny!

Thank you very much for your great review. It was indeed a great day out, especially with the sighting of the dolphin and the excitement of them swimming very closely to Damai Indah ! Glad that you had a great experience with Damai Indah as much as we enjoyed hosting you and your family.

“Lovely afternoon / sunset cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Spent a lovely afternoon and evening on Damai Indah sunset cruise with my husband and 2 children.
Beautiful boat, free flowing drinks, delicious food, options for swimming and canoing in gorgeous surroundings; there's nothing else I'd rather have done!

Thank you very much for your great review. It is quite understandable that RM 450 is abit on the higher end for a sharing cruise but then again surely one need to look into what Damai Indah has to offer and we are very happy that you were there to experience it and now sharing it here on Trip Advisor.

We do take our food seriously and yes, shopping is done on a daily basis as we only get the freshest on what the wet market has to offer on that day. At the sametime, our crew members are those who are very passionate about Damai Indah, sailing and Langkawi and of surely customer satisfaction is on top of our list hence you will see our multinational crew of a different back ground but with one objective, that is to ensure that we share this beautiful island with our guest coupled with great food and drinks on Damai Indah. Yes, with Captain Dean as you have discovered, he is a walking encyclopedia when comes to Langkawi's nature.

Having said all that , the cruise, the limited number on a cruise, the food, the drinks, the crews including the walking nature encyclopedia, surely RM 450 isn't too much to ask for. Thank you for joining us and telling your friends about Damai Indah. Come back soon and bring your friends too.
