Situated close to our resort, the Damai Central was really a convenience shopping stop and place to buy ready to eat food-hall food. As a tourist attraction it was lacking. Could be cleaner and better lighting would go a long way to make it more attractive.

One of the landmark opposite the Sarawak Cultural Village. The beach is clean and calm. However, not many shops were opened during my visit

Wide variety of choices of food available, open till night time though not every stall was opened where we were there. The price is reasonable given its location.

Damai Central isn't well known for its choice of retail outlets, however I'm not there to shop, I'm there to eat where the locals eat, as hotels and resorts tend to cater for the tourist's pallet. Damai central has a large selection of foods from Roti to Tom Yam. What surprised me was that the average price was 8 to... More

The sea breeze, the sounds of waves lapping on the shore and a stretch of blue sea reaching to the horizons. What tops is all is you look up and realise you're surrounded by tall, green mountains. You'll feel safe and secluded from the outside world, in this little combination of blue and green eye candy.
