Sarawak’s first five-star beach resort and spa is set to open in Santubong here in August.
The Damai Puri Resort and Spa was originally scheduled to open early this month in time for the Rainforest Worl d Music Festival at the nearby Sarawak Cultural Village.
Formerly the Holiday Inn Resort Damai Lagoon, Damai Puri Resort and Spa is currently undergoing major redevelopment at a cost of RM35mil.
Renovation works started on April 1 after the management of the Sarawak Economic Devel-opment Corporation-owned pr-operty was taken over by Da-mai Puri Hotels and Resorts, a Malaysian company registered in Sarawak, early this year.
“When completed, Kuching will have a five-star resort,” Klug said.
He said the Senja Puri spa village, the first in the state, would be one of the resort’s highlights.
“Built with a Balinese concept, it will have its own reception area, one- and two-bedroom spa villas, massage gazebos, a hydro-pool and other facilities,” he said.
The spa village is scheduled to open in October but treatments will be available following the resort’s soft opening in August.
The completed resort will have 200 guest rooms and suites, a business centre, gym, two swimming pools including an infinity pool and children’s playground.
Dining facilities include a new Malaysian specialty restaurant called Ku, an all-day restaurant serving local and international fare, a pool cafe, a lobby lounge and an indoor/outdoor bar.
