For golfers, an 18-hole Arnold Palmer-designed golf course is also within walking distance of the Resort. The course is recognised as one of the best in the country. The centre is also equipped with driving range, café, swimming pool and tennis and squash court.

Five km from the Damai Rainforest Resort, at the mouth of the Sarawak River, is Santubong fishing village. The village still very traditional in many respects. In the evenings you can see the fisherman coming back from their daily fishing trips, enjoy one of Sarawak’s popular snack, fried banana (pisang goreng), or just walk along the beach and enjoy the sea breeze.


The Mausoleum of Sultan Tengah is located just before the Santubong fishing village. Sultan Tengah was the son of the third Sultan of Brunei. He died in 1641 and was the first and only Sultan of Sarawak.

A 30-minute boat ride away from Permai Rainforest Resort is the island of Pulau Satang Besar. With its clear blue waters and golden sandy beach, it is one of the most beautiful islands off the Santubong Peninsula. It is one of the group of Turtle Islands. These islands are protected areas and are a sanctuary for the marine green turtles. Every year from June to October, thousands of these turtles would come ashore to lay their eggs on the beaches of these islands. Visits to the islands are restricted and permits are required.
