Damai Puri Resort: The Borneo Identity

Hello, Pretty in Kuching

Coastal Relaxation In Sarawak

The open-air lobby is a sign of things to come at Damai Puri Resort, where the openness extends to the staff as well as the walls.  Just 30km from Kuching, the capital of the Malaysian state of Sarawak, Damai Puri Resort offers the type of tropical idyll that entices European visitors to spend their entire winter in sunny splendour.

The resort’s recent upgrading has made it one of the top choices for accommodation on the coast north of Kuching, which has become a popular place to unwind for those who come to these pristine shores to surround themselves in Nature.  Past Mount Santubong, Damai Puri Resort is also a very short walk from Sarawak Cultural Village, home to a semi-kitsch culture show in the Village theatre as well as a collection of traditional houses presented in an appreciatively unkitsch manner.  The Cultural Village is the site of the annual Rainforest World Music Festival that takes place every July.  The Festival has become one of the top musical events in Southeast Asia and attracts big-name performers.

Damai Puri Resort’s brand-new spa village is the setting for a spoiling at the hands of the deft masseurs.  The spa village is just to the left of the main grounds, but feels like worlds away again once the treatment begins.  With Sarawak’s abundance of fresh produce, the restaurants at Damai Puri have a lot to work with and offer a vast array of tasty culinary experiences, from the outdoor barbecues to Continental Modern at Panini, its open-air, beachside café.  Damai Puri Resort is popular for private and corporate events and provides ample assistance whether organising a weeklong conference or a one night stand under the stars. 

Borneo’s riverss are perfect for kayaking

Sarawak is one of Malaysia’s two states on the island of Borneo (the other is Sabah).  Here in one of the richest repositories of flora and fauna in the world, nature lovers will be beside themselves when they find themselves beside a rare orchid or a smiling orangutan at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, which can be easily visited from Damai Puri as part of a tour with the very friendly Bob Zakaria of Tropical Horbill Travel and Tours (that’s right, no n).  For more adventure, jump in a kayak and go for a ride with Jackson and Iris along one of Sarawak’s peaceful and beautiful rivers with Borneo Trek & Kayak Adventure.
