Towering five-star property on the banks of Kuching’s Sarawak River, with an outdoor pool and hot tub
On a hill overlooking the Sarawak River, the five-star Pullman Kuching has been a luxe landmark since it opened in 2009. Behind the imposing white façade, the 389 guestrooms are decked out in a soothing lilac and mint color scheme, with sleek wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out at the skyline. Take a dip in the outdoor lap pool or relax with a glass of champagne at Déjà Vu, a lounge bar dotted with dramatic artworks in the glass-vaulted marble lobby. The hotel’s poolside bar, Liquid, is a laid-back spot where guest DJs play until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Tuck into homemade pastries at Café Chat, Asian and Western fare at Puzzle, or authentic Chinese cuisine at Nu Er Hong. The Fit and Spa Lounge features a sauna, a steam room and hot and cold plunge pools, and offers a range of traditional massages and reflexology treatments.
In the Area
Studded with temples, bazaars, restaurants and bars, the city of Kuching is relatively small and easy to navigate. And the Pullman Kuching’s hilltop location could not be more central. The hotel is within walking distance of the waterfront’s bustling esplanade, where you’ll find an array of market stalls and riverside restaurants. Hop a sampan (river taxi) and look out for the colorful local fishing fleets that chug along this section of the river. Local highlights include Semenggoh Wildlife Center, an impressive orangutan reserve, and Sarawak Cultural Village, an outdoor museum that showcases the traditional houses of the indigenous people of Sarawak; check out the dance show at 11 a.m. on weekdays.
