Damai Beach Resort, Kuching

After a few days staying at the city, finally we moved to Damai Beach Resort which a bit far from the city. 40 minutes drive from Kuching, the capital city of Sarawak and was a really nice place actually. As for my children they like swimming pool a lot, so as long as the hotel has swimming pool that is very good for them. It was a bit busy that time because of school Holiday. You can check all the facilities and activities at their website.

Superior Poolside room
The Beach
Tree house for children at "Kids Village" one of the facilities of the Resort
Aishah is playing at the kids Club
And my husband also want to try the challenge.

  We have stayed there for 2 nights. The 1st night we were there, it a bit noisy because of the Chinese neighbor having a party till 2 o'clock in the morning. The room is not a sound proof room especially if you are staying at the Superior Poolside room. They were drunk, laughing and talking so loud and we really can hear it from our room. Very irritating ,we could not sleep at all.  

The next day, we visited Sarawak Cultural Village. It was so close by the resort 15-20 minutes walking. For those who visiting the village, be sure to see the cultural performance at 11.30am everyday. You will enjoy it after walking around to see the houses.

Passport to visit Sarawak Cultural village. make sure you don't miss one of the houses.
Aishah is trying the old pepper grinder at the chinese house

Cultural dance performance.
Back to the hotel in the afternoon, have a light lunch and continue with swimming
Just to mention here that Damai Beach Resort has recently open new room which they call Baruk Room. Me and my husband have seen the room and it was really romantic place for honeymooners. 
The Challet.
The Interior. In round shape with a sea view.
There were no guest at the hill side swimming pool when we were there. 
Very nice view from the hill. We really like it.
Children pool

We are going to the jungle of Sarawak in my next post.
