Sematan Palm Beach Resort
| English | Chinese |
There are activities to keep you occupied during your stay at Sematan Palm Beach Resort. Other than simply swim and sunbathe by the beach, be a little adventurous when you're there.
While in Sematan, don't miss the jelly- fish factory. However, the factory only welcomes visitors during the jellyfish season in the months of April and May. This is where one can witness how freshly caught jellyfish are processed for the market.
For a taste of local culture, make a visit to the Selakau Longhouse nearby or perhaps take a look at the oldest Chinese wooden shop in Sematan that dates back to about 150 years old. Inquire the resort staff for more information on the village and its people here.
Nature lovers can hike at the nearby Gunung Gading National Park. If you're lucky, you'll be able to see the world's largest flower, Rafflesia, bloom in its glory. Alternatively, hop on a boat to Tanjung Datu National Park to discover the untouched flora and fauna of the Sarawak rainforest.
