Lush rainforest, glorious sun, and sea. These are the ingredients of the Santubong Peninsula, in the cultural Malaysian state of Sarawak, which creates the perfect atmosphere for chilling in Borneo.
Nestled upon the pristine surrounds of picturesque Damai Beach in the center of Santubong Peninsula, Damai Puri Resort & Spa is an isolated and idyllic place to enjoy Borneo’s personality. The complex showcases well-equipped guest rooms and exceptional facilities which include 5 signature restaurants, a fabulous infinity pool and a secluded stretch of golden sand beach.
Set under the spectacularly steep 810 peak of Gunung Santubong and perched within the world’s oldest tropical rainforest, the resort offers panoramic views of South China Sea. The nearby wild coves look like they were taken from the popular TV series Lost. You can reach them by renting a kayak right on the beach.
A few minutes away the resort is the world famous Sarawak Cultural Village which hosts the World Rainforest Music Festival, an annual three-day event celebrating the diversity of world music. Another highlighted activity one can do from the resort is the visit of the magnificent Bako National Park.
Although the temperature of the water is pretty warm, Damai Puri Resort & Spa is the perfect place for chilling in Borneo surrounded by a unique and appealing environment.
Just 35 km north of Kuching city, this unusual place is an alternative to the touristic Kota Kinabalu hotels on the east coast of Borneo.
