Stay at this resort at your own RISK. Resort Management of this establishment neglect their guest security. We had our room broken into the second day we got there. The thief took RM850 from our room between 5:15 and 6:30 while we were at the pool. We lodged a report of the incident with the hotel security who promised to investigate the matter. We found out the next day that we were not the only victim, a guest below our room lost a 1.5 carat diamond ring. She too lodge a report to the police. She told us that the hotel demanded that if she take the hotel transportation to the police station, she will have to pay them for the cost. The management, Resort Manager and Operations Director both admitted to the failure in their security and a severe breach. We were informed that someone had taken a master key and made a duplicate without authorisation. We were informed that their SOP, Standard Operating Procedure was not followed which allowed this individual the opportunity use the hotel tools to commit the crime. For their admission of their negligence, hotel management refused to bear responsibility of the whole fiasco. We reported the incident to the Borneo Post;

We decided to treat ourselves to some luxury and stayed at the Damai Puri & Spa Resort for 3 nights which is a very nice hotel right on the beach. It was just great not having to share the toilet and showers for 3 nights and to have a "quiet" environment. Our room faced the beach and it we just heard the waves all the time. It was so relaxing …
... taxi it became apparent the the taxi was actually for the couple in the back that we'd completely high jacked. Hot and sticky from the excitement and mini jog we spread ourselves out on the bus for the journey home. A middle aged Malaysian man saw Kate sat by herself as an opportunity to join her. Whilst chatting he seemed to be keen to be as close as possible, way too cosy for Kate who decided that Nicola would probably be a preferable option and made her excuses to move ...
... the project isn't anywhere near as well organised as I would expect. Ultimately, the houses will get built and they will be fine.
This evening we dined at a great coffee shop. I had a noodle dish, a teh tarik and an iced tea. If you pick a place where the locals are dining you can't go wrong.
Loved the photo of the eye clinic on the way to the diner. Maybe that's why I'm still adjusting to my glasses.
... boat and driver to ourselves. The boat's electric motor was almost silent and it was great to glide along the Sarawak river taking in the scenery (see a few photos). It didn't take long before we were outside the city and the river banks were lush and populated by the occasional tidy but basic shack. After initial shyness, Bardy got to know the boat driver and was soon helping him steer and making sure all the other boats and animals knew ...
... Hobbit whilst the other was like something out of your worst nightmare! Despite a few ant bites and a couple of hornet stings, we had a great day but discovered that Sarah and Ella both need a bit more practice behind the handle bars. Saving the best attraction till last, our final afternoon was spent in the Kuching Cat Museum! If the cabinets of cat food and photos of cats in fancy dress weren't enough, we learnt that putting cats near corpses ...
