The Waterfront Hotel

Welcome to Sarawak !

For this coming IAP event we bring you to Kuching, endearingly nicknamed ‘Cat City’ the capital, and most populous city in the state of Sarawak. This city is set along the Sarawak River which features beautifully landscaped waterfront promenades offering many modern amenities with small town ambience. The compact city center makes it walkable.

Explore the legacy of the Brookes, flamboyant Chinese temples that brush up against the grand mosque and walk through the narrow streets to discover shops selling exotic curios. Cross the river to the other side of the city via the ferryboat or stroll across the Darul Hana pedestrian bridge to a picturesque Malay village, Astana Palace, and the New Sarawak State Legislative Assembly Building.

Take a short drive to a nearby nature reserve to meet the semi-wild orangutans at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, or a boat ride to Sarawak’s oldest national park at Bako to meet the rare and endemic Proboscis monkey.


Foodie? We got you covered! Kuching is a major food destination. We recently became a member of UNESCO’s City of Gastronomy in 2021. Dubbed as one of the most multi-racial city in Malaysia where 31 ethnic groups called home, there are abundance of culture, nature, adventure, and food to discover in this state.
