The Southwest Adventure is the gateway to northern Borneo and is the usual first stop for visitors to Sarawak. This region is the historic administrative centre of Sarawak and hence is the most developed part of the State. Here, a vast range of convention facilities, visitor activities and unique experiences are available to groups of all sizes.
Kuching is the capital city of Sarawak and was the historic city of the White Rajahs. There are over 23 international class hotels (3-5 star rating), and over 50 boutique and smaller hotels in town. Forty minutes’ drive away, on the famed Santubong Peninsula, another 900 or so rooms are spread over three beachfront resorts at Damai Beach.
R & R for delegates range from our lush golfing haven, Borneo Highlands Resort, to the Batang Ai Hilton and the resorts at the Santubong Peninsula.
Nature lovers will find their heaven in Kuching’s numerous national parks, wildlife centres, mountains and caves where the world’s most endangered wildlife still roam.
Nestled at the foothills of mystical Mount Santubong is the Sarawak Cultural Village, a living museum showcasing traditional lifestyles – perfect for the delegate with time constraints.
Eating, shopping and a night out Kuching-style are things to be explored first hand. There’s nothing like immersing oneself in the local mojo with the gazillion eateries, local craft shops, upscale shopping centres and cosy night-out coffee places and pubs.
