The Waterfront Hotel

Kuching | Superior

The Waterfront Hotel, in the heart of Sarawak’s busy capital, combines timeless style and service with state-of-the-art facilities and slick efficiency. Ideally located for exploring the city’s renowned riverside quarter, this stylish hotel has panoramic views across the water towards some of Kuching’s most iconic architecture, including the elaborate pagoda-style State Assembly building.

A large, chic chandelier draws your gaze as you enter the open lobby, where deep armchairs in cosy corners evoke comfort and relaxation. Carefully-selected works by local artists are on display throughout, adding individuality and freshness from Kuching’s contemporary culture. The swimming pool is one of the hotel’s highlights; surrounded by an open-sided terrace, the sheltered pool has uninterrupted views across the river and is the perfect spot for an early morning swim as the sun rises, or taking a dip as the buildings beyond light up in the evening.

The rooms themselves feel modern and elegant; generously-sized beds, warm lamplight and plush chaise longues. The neutrally-toned décor is accented with pale wood and splashes of vivid colour, and the monochrome en-suites are bright and spacious. Full-length windows bring in daylight and give you your own first-class views across the Sarawak River, and there is a range of layouts to choose from depending on your needs.

Café Via Mare, the onsite restaurant, is a lovely spot to enjoy breakfast with those stunning views (and their signature dish of Sarawak Laksa is apparently ‘not to be missed’), but with many other cafes and restaurants within walking distance you’ll have your pick of tempting cuisines to try each day as you explore Kuching from your convenient riverside hub.

We Say
Contemporary style with a cosy, family-friendly vibe.
