Sarawak Sunset Photo

Sunset Photo Sarawak

This beautiful sunset photo in Sarawak was taken from the 17th floor of the Meritz Hotel in Miri town. Overlooking the entire Miri city, the Meritz hotel offers one of the best views from the open concept Sky Bar on the 17th floor.

I captured this sunset photo when I visited the Meritz Hotel for a press conference with the Sarawak Tourism Board during the Borneo Jazz Festival.

The special cocktail event was held at the sky bar which is one of the recommended places to catch a sunset in Miri.

Where are the best places to see sunsets in Sarawak? 

Overall, Miri was well known as an oil-city but was re-branded as a resort city by the sea, and is one of the best places to see sunsets.

There are numerous locations throughout the city area, namely at the Meritz Sky Bar or by the main beaches.

For photographers who want to capture the best sunset photos, it is recommended you engage a local in Miri to do this. There is a Miri photography tour company that specializes in these kinds of trips.

Other interesting places in Sarawak include Damai Beach in Santubong, which is about an hour out of Kuching.

At Damai, you can also get some of the beautiful sunsets in Sarawak, and even better if you can climb up to Mount Santubong. 

For those who do not know, Miri City is one of the main gateways to the Mulu National Park and Niah National Park in Sarawak.


Many who are visiting these national parks will use Miri as a stopping point, and even spending a few days here to explore one of Sarawak's interesting cities.

While you are here, do look for the opportunity to see if you can get a good sunset photo while in Sarawak.
