We had read some not so good reviews and when I failed to arrange a pick up from the airport with the resort I was a little concerned. We arrived at Kuching Airport after midnight and we were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to get a taxi, with a friendly helpful driver.
BY the time we arrive at Damai Puri it was almost 2:00 am but despite out late check in there was a friendly face at reception and we were quickly settled into our room. We woke up in the morning to the satisfying sound of waves and a great sea view across the pool area. OK the resort itself is a bit tired looking but our room was fine and it was clean with plenty of space.
It was midweek in the quiet season so there were lots of friendly staff and and few guests. This means that not all the facilities were operating all of the day. However there were choices and we did enjoy the food. The buffet breakfast was typical of Malaysian resorts but it had choices for Western and Asian tastes. In the evening we ate at restaurants and enjoyed drinks in their Gecko bar where once again the friendly staff were happy to do anything to please.
We ended up enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful beach so much that we never left the resort area. We swam and relaxed in the pool, we walked along the beach and we also enjoyed the jungle walks just at the back of the resort, all without any pressure to be anywhere at a time. I would recommend this resort as a great place to unwind next to the sea and jungle in Kuching.
