I'm on a bussiness travelling and stayed in a chalet for 3 days 2 nights. The most annoying part is I can hear people in the room besides me running non stop. I can't sleep nor I cant do any work while in my room. The food was not that great but still it was eat-able. The aircond is super-cold... More

Its a short trip with a bunch of friends, got a very cheap and affordable room rate from booking.com for a chalet by the beach, not exactly by the beach, without a sea view. But very accessible to the beach but the beach is not as clean as we thought. There are rocks along the beach,better not to walk bare... More

I was disappointed with this visit. I brought my friends and families from overseas to visit my hometown kuching and we stayed in damai for 2 nights. Because of the big group of us, we decided to stay at the hill top. The rooms were a bit musty so we had to air it . At the evening, we saw... More

Good location with view of Mount Santubong as well as the South China Sea. Beautiful views of the sunset. The beach was however a little disappointing, with lots of rocks immediately outide the hotel. We did enjoy the swimming pool. We stayed in a standard balcony room. The room decor was dated with some items broken, such as a chair... More

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
