Room (# 623) was pretty run down; dusty, desk lamp was not working, sound proofing was close to none. Free WIFI was available but pretty weak signals and always needed to re-login every time moving out of range. However, breakfast was good at the Satang Cafe overseeing the swimming pools. Fresh ground coffee was available upon request.

We did visit the resort for a day trip while staying in Kuching. Santubong is a very nice Place so far. As day guest you have to pay an entrance fee but you aren't allowed to use the pool which was used by only 2 guests at all. There is not really a beach. Due to low tide it was... More

We were almost dreading it here but it's been lovely! Don't let other reviews necessarily put you off because we had a great experience. We only came for two days. The hotel was pretty much empty the whole time we were there! We were the only ones by the pool.. The only ones in the restaurant! It was bliss! The... More

We stayed in the clifftop rooms and they were comfy and clean. possibly in need of a refresh but perfectly acceptable with one glaring issue - Hot water only lasted 25seconds in the shower. The steps to the main facility were closed off which meant calling for a minivan but this was almost instant and not an issue. However, the... More

An amazing hotel, at a great location in Damai. We stayed here because we wanted to climb 'Mount Santubong', which is a 10 minute walk. To come back at this hotel after the hike is a real treat. We got an upgrade to the Barok Suite, which was fabulous! Great view over the sea, a really spacious and very nicely... More

The hotel itself is ok, but a long way from the good times when it was a Holiday Inn hotel. The most disappointing part is the "beach". Full of sharp rocks and stones and you have to look out to find a sandy spot to get into the sea. At low tide forget it all together, the water is way... More

We stayed three nights in a room with pool view. We had read many reviews online and expected a worn down hotel, but we were happily surprised to find the hotel in fine shape. Hotel staff is helpful and friendly. The room was very spacious, clean and overall good. Breakfast was delicious with many options. The pool area was very... More

Had a lovely overnight stay. Booked the Baruk suite. Well worth booking this room if you want a treat. Huge room with fantastic views. Had excellent room service. The pool near the suite is perfect. Great shuttle service taking you down to main resort. The reason I gave a 4 is simply because some of the furnishings and decor were... More
