Damai Central

This place is in between Damai Beach and Damai Puri. Free admission. Can plan to go together with the visit to Sarawak Cultural Village which is just opposite.

been there for dinner. Not so many stalls are opened at that time. But no chance to take photo with Kenyalang statue since it is so dark. Got 7E there for 24hours shopping. and it is in front of Sarawak cultural village.

Built on a coastal land fronting the panoramic South China Sea, Damai Craftsworld & Event Centre takes the “center stage” of Damai Bay with the advantage of natural ambience of sun, sand and sea, all set against the backdrop of the lush tropical greenery of Mt.

Opposite the Sarawak Cultural Village, and connected to Damai Beach Resort via a narrow walking bridge. A nicely constructed mini mall with provision of shop lots, a couple of restaurants, a budget accommodation, foodcourt, courtyard, and a mini amphitheatre. However, nothing much was happening there even on weekends. OK to drop by there just have a look if you are... More

If you stay in nearby reorder and had visited the Cultural Village. It is perhaps a good idea to just have a morning or evening stroll around this Damai Central looking at the scenic Santubong Mountain and Damai Beach.

The place was nice, but too quiet and empty. Didn't get to the beach because it was too sunny and hot, we were too tired for that after the Cultural Village. We had our lunch at this restaurant/bistro place called Escobar. Everything looks good at first until we get in. It's so hot even when the aircond is on, so... More

Right by Damai Beach Resort and Sarawak Cultural Village is this relatively new food court with 8 food stalls and 2 drink stalls. Much cheaper than any alternative hotel restaurant.

Went there for breakfast with my sister during July 2015. The food stall's food quality need to be improved and cleanliness of the place should be take noted as well. Lack of maintenance and management.
