The last trip here was my third time at the Damai. It's always beautiful and always a pleasure to be back. It's always a nice touch to be recognised by the staff as well.
This time I picked one of the new Studio pool villas. These are placed next to the Master Pool Villas and they can be combined to create a three bed villa with two pools. The style of the villa was modern asian and was pleasing to the eye and very well laid out. The room was spotlessly clean as well.
The Damai is a boutique vila hotel,and is small but perfectly formed. The staff are great too however the General Manager was conspicuous by his lack of interaction with the guests, he should take some tips from his predecessor...
I do have one moan and it's at odds with some recent reviews...the food.
The food is of a very very good standard and I didn't eat anything that I was unhappy with. Two things strike me however (1) the standard has dropped below the excellent level it used to be. I understand the long serving chef has left and, of course, it takes time for someone new to find their level; (2) the core menu does not seem to have changed in the last 5 or 6 years.
Overall a very very good hotel. One star knocked off for the dip in food excellence but otherwise excellent. And yes, I would definitely go to Damai again.
