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

Amazing stays with family. Kids loved it. I love the breathtaking sea view from the bed. It's paradise to wake up every morning to this view. Baruk Suite has it own private pool, share among all the Baruk guests.There is a free shuttle service between the main building where the resort lobby located and the hilltop baruks. The response time... More

The resort's location is the best for those who join the Rainforest World Music Festival. Although the festival provides shuttle bus service to the Kuching, the trip takes almost an hour. Yet Damai Beach Resort is only 10 minutes walk away. The only thing to complain is that there's no nice restaurants around.

The room we initially got was horrible. Dusty, musty, smelly and damp. These are the rooms located at the front (nos. 601 onwards). Avoid them if you can. On our next stay we got the room near the pool which was much better although no balcony. This hotel has seen better days and looks like it's crumbling down without any... More

I stayed at Damai Beach Resort for 5 nights and attended the Rainforest World Music Festival at nearby Sarawak Cultural Village. Had a lovely stay. The resort may be a little 'behind the times ' in some ways, and the rooms are a bit dated, needing some basic maintenance and repair, but overall the fantastically friendly and helpful staff, great...
