“Amazing place!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Nanga Damai is a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful location, very relaxing atmosphere. Polycarp could not be more friendly and he was always ready to help us. The views are amazing. I would definately stay there again.

What a joy for four of us to stay here for 3 days over Christmas. The rooms have great views over the jungle, you can wake up to the birds, laze on the couch in the upstairs living room, watch the monkeys, enjoy a beverage looking over the pool, and wander down to Damai Central for lunch, walks, seaside.
Lionel was our host in the absence of Polycarb and he couldn't have done more for us. He drove us and picked us up when it rained (which was all the time), and was most helpful and enthusiastic about the area and Borneo in general. Thanks Lionel, you really made our few days most memorable. We would be delighted to show you the same courtesy should you ever venture to Perth Aus!

We stayed in the Nanga Damai Homestay for 4 nights. It was a absolutely perfect place for relaxing with all the luxury things that you need. We had an amazing look from our room "James Brook" direct to the dschungel and we can watch the monkeys who live there in the jungle.

We were fortunate to spend 4 nights at Nanga Damai, we originally booked for 3 but enjoyed it so much we extended.

We stayed in the Margaret Renee room and found this to meet our needs clean, spacious enough and a hot shower. The room also has it's own verandah which we rarely used.

The pool is lovely as is the deck where everyone tends to meet after their days activities. The honesty system with drinks is great as can help yourself when you need/want a drink.

Pollycarp is a wonderful host, he was in Kuching the day we were coming so he picked us up and was happy to take us to a restaurant for dinner that evening.

It's an easy walk to the cultural centre and the food court, from memory it was about 20 minutes.

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, with comfy beds, a great breakfast, a nice pool and a wonderful host then this is the place.

My girlfriend and I stayed here last week and it is our favourite accommodation in Malaysia thus far.

The views of the jungle and the South China Sea are outstanding. The rooms are fairly basic, but are certainly clean and equipped with all you really need.

The owner is a wonderful host. Despite just having arrived home from overseas, and facing a personal tragedy at home, he showed us the warmest hospitality. He even drove us to and from a restaurant we wanted to eat at more than 10km away, and gave us beer and stayed up for a few drinks on our last night.

The two women on staff are bright, vibrant and so full of smiles that it becomes infectious.

Add a swimming pool and reasonable prices to the mix and you can't go wrong. Highly recommended. Will have fond memories of our short stay at Nanga Damai for a long time to come.

Nanga Damai Homestay
My wife and I stayed in James Brooke room from 19-22 November 2013.
We found it excellent value with well appointed rooms, large open living and lounge areas, good breakfasts provided and very hospitable owner / manager.
The rooms look out into rain forest on 3 sides and ocean views on the other. The swimming pool is good sized and well maintained. The host suggested good dining options and when available provided drop off and pickup. Overall a very relaxed atmosphere with opportunities to meet other guests.
We stayed an additional night rather than spend our last night in Kuching. There is a good shuttle service to and from Kuching which made getting to and from the airport easy. Staying here was an excellent end to our Thailand / Borneo trip.
