"This is not the best hotel in Desaru, however my kids love it so much because of the water slide. I think they must play 30 times. This is our 2nd time here and we will come again."

Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"Staffs - Very friendly and helpful Price - Worth it. Room - Great view of the waterpark, spacious, clean, big toilet too. We booked a family room that comes with 2 queen size bed. their queen bed is slightly smaller than our normal queen bed. Food - a few food outlet. There's Mexican restaurant, lobby lounge and local restaurant. breakfast, great spread. shuttle bus - free. but they will only shuttle in desaru coast area only. which most of the place is not yet ready. Transport - you need to get the staff to call cab for you. No uber/grab. The best is to have your own transport. Cos there will more food area and shop at desaru utama or small mall. Nothing much around hard rock hotel. Most shops are not ready. Overall - Nice hotel and great. Will be back once all rooms category are open. "

Amansari Hotel Desaru
Bandar Penawar,Desaru - View on map
"We went to Desaru for a surfing trip, and we stayed in this hotel. To go to the surfing beach, you have to arrange for a taxi to pick you up at the hotel. The hotel is just beside a mall and some restaurants. On one of the levels, there's a bar (where they have a duo singing) and a play room where you can play billiards. The breakfast is nice as well and the place is peaceful."

Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort - Desaru
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"Hotel stay was pleasant n worth every penny. They've upgraded their facilities since the last time i came here. Now it is equipped with glass door gym overseeing the pool, futsal grass field, volleyball area, swings and spa. I was on my mini honeymoon so we decided to drive to Desaru after my reception as i wanted a seaview holiday and everywhere else was monsoon season. The hotel was full and only left with 2 super single bed which was ok for us but the kind manager upgraded our room to family room since we ask politely if there was any queen size bed for us. Tunamaya is definitely the most affordable seaview hotel in Desaru but the hospitality has taken it up a notch! "

Sand & Sandals Desaru Beach Resort & Spa
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"This resort was a last minute booking by middle agent due to the first booking at lotus resort screw up just a couple of days before check in. The S&S resort is located within/along the desaru coast similarly to all the other resorts. Room: Large, clean, spacious and bathroom amenities. Toilet: Clean, spacious with heater. Service: Most are able to communicate in English. Though if peak period their manpower might not handle, just wait awhile. Pool: Just nice, provided heated/warm pool towel, clean pool, pool bar service available (drinks and snacks). Recommend the fried chicken. Beach: Not recommend to swim due to large wave. Generally clean and safe to play on the sand. Security: Safe and secure, feel very safe and sound when staying and parking within the resort. Restaurant: Had the Japanese food for dinner, took awhile but overall was very satisfied with service and quality of food for the price paid. Morning breakfast was standard international buffet. "

More about Desaru

This small coastal town on the east coast of Malaysia was once a popular resort destination for international tourists and locals from the big cities. These days, one of the best things about Desaru is that it is a lot less developed than most other resort destinations, allowing a chance to relax on a fairly pristine beachfront. There are several regularly scheduled buses and boats that bring visitors into Desaru, so access to the small town isn’t very hard even for international travelers.

In addition to a quiet and peaceful Public Beach, the Desaru beachfront is also home to a popular Fishing Museum that should not be missed by anyone visiting this area. The beach is a great destination for sunbathing, snorkeling, and even swimming as most of the beachfront is fairly shallow water that lends itself to great water activities. The entire beachfront is open to the public, another advantage of the low resort development.

While in Desaru, take advantage of the day trip opportunity to Kota Tinggi, and explore around Kota Tinggi Waterfall. Whether taking time to explore the unique attractions of Desaru, or spending time exclusively on the beach, this small and quiet town is a great place in which to take a few days’ rest.
