Damai Beach, Kuching
Take white sand beaches lapped by the South China Sea, add rainforest walks and an imposing jungle -covered mountain and you have Damai. This is Sarawak's main beach resort area.
Damai boasts three to five international-class resort hotels - Damai Beach Resort, Damai Puri Resort & Spa and Santubong Kuching Resort. Each has its own secluded beach, landscaped, free form swimming pool and offers jet skiing, water-skiing, windsurfing, mountain biking, tennis, squash and fitness centers.
You could spend a whole holiday without leaving the resort, but nearby are the Arnold Palmer-designed Damai Golf & Country Club, the Sarawak Cultural Villaqe and the sleepy fishing villages of Santubong and Buntal with their excellent seafood restaurants'.
For the more adventurous there is the climb through the rainforest to the summit of Mount Santubong. It's a five to six-hour trek and your hotel will provide a guide and a packed lunch.
If luxury living is not your style or you want to get closer to nature, try Camp Permai at the foot of Mount Santubong. With air-conditioned tree houses or family log cabins, the camp offers "a total rainforest experience.
The emphasis is on adventure with abseiling, sea canoeing and trekking and there are instructors on hand to guide you.
Whether it’s all out adventure, water sports, golfing or just relaxing on the beach, Damai has something for everyone.
A short walk from Damai Beach brings you to the Jungle Cafe. You can walk through the cafe and you get on a short trek through the jungle, which is a really nice walk. Lots to see, small animals, forests, etc.
For beach lovers, you might want to spend a night at damai beach resort. A nice and not so crowded beach with a view.
A relaxing walk thru the quiet night beach by yourself, your friends or your loved ones, enjoying the splashes on your legs by the waves... feeling is great!
Note that the wave at night is quite strong and not recommended for swimming.
The sea water is quite clean with no rubbish can be seen.
Please take a look at attached pics. They say all that needs to be said. Location: Damai Beach (Holiday Inn). Abt 45. min from Kuching city.
I really suggest making this the final place to go on a Kuching trip for relaxation and pampering after a long adventure at Kuching.
