Good Getaway from Singapore”
One of the best part about Lotus Desaru is its proximity to Singapore. With the launch of the new Senai-Desaru expressway, the distance is hardly one hour drive after crossing the JB immigration. Even though I observed repeated reviews in Agoda mentioning about the long waiting time during check-in, there seems to be no improvement in addressing this aspect (especially when large crowds are expected during school holidays). The check-in queue for us was almost one and half hour.. However, I should give credit to the front desk staff for being courteous and accomodative despite the long queues and some frustrated guests. Except for this, the stay in resort was a wonderful experience. For those who are particular about Indian Vegetarian Food, no worries at this resort as they cater to this need. The staff are very friendly and room service is very prompt. Lots of options / fun activities available to choose from or you can simply relax and enjoy the sea breeze. The Ayurvedic Spa experience was quite relaxing. All in all, a good choice for a short getaway.
We booked 3 bedroom suite. Spacious and clean. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast the most. Variety of food. Staffs are awesome. Especially the receptionist Sasi, Chef Santhosh and the room attendant(sorry, didn't get his name) who assisted us with the room key when we left it in the room. Within 2 mins he was there to assist with the key card and the operator who answered my call for the key card. Real value for money. The only disappointment was the themepark. We have been thinkin that the Desaru Coast is the same as the one in Lotus. At least the people that we approached should have said that the actual themepark is further up. We are there for the first time. So, didnt know much about Desaru. But anyways, I still love Lotus Desaru Resort especially their service and we surely come back! Thank you for your hospitality.
Dear Thavamanie, Thank you for choosing Lotus Desaru Beach Resort & Spa as your holiday destination. We appreciate your kind compliments and we are delighted that you had a wonderful experience during your stay. However you have highlighted an issue that we face recently since the opening of the Desaru Adventure Waterpark. Many of our guest expect our in-house waterpark to be somewhat similar to it. We will re-brand our waterpark so guests will be able to distinguish the difference. Once again, thank you for your patronage and we hope to see you again! Best Regards, Alwin Soloman PR Manager
Beautiful Resort, full of fun”
never heard good things about desaru, it's always laid back and boring. but this first experience at lotus desaru is fabulous. my kids from 3 - 8 love it so much. the water theme park is the hot favorite. they literally do not want to leave the place for lunch and dinner. food in the resort is great too, buffet style. adults pay full but my young kids was waived. beach was fun too with jet ski and para-sail, etc.. on the last night, we headed to sg rengit for dinner. seafood haven. about 30 mins from the resort. other than that, all other places near there is truly boring. room is comfortable and nice. pricey for the place, but worth it. reception staff are very helpful and cheerful staff are all over the place. we will be back again.
Lotus Beach Resort, Desaru”
I went to Lotus Beach Desaru with my family and we booked the 2-bedroom suite. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had the water park view so it was really fun! The sunrise in Desaru beach is something not to be missed! Families gather around the beach in chairs just for that :) If you are looking for R&R, this is the place for you. Nothing much to shop. Just rest and relax. Which was perfect for us. Overall, the stay in Lotus Beach Resort was great! The staff were friendly. Will come back again end of year.
Nice and pleasant hotel to spend your holiday”
Hotel stuff is nice and helpful. The shuttle service is great, very convenient. Very pretty and clean beach. Very enjoy to stay at the beach. A lot of water sports and activities available in the beach. The room is big and spacious. And it is clean and tidy as well. All the furniture inside the room is still in working condition. Satelite TV, fridge, safe, hair blower, air-con also provided. The bed is also big and comfortable. Bath room also clean and nice. Variety of breakfast also provided by the resort. Taste is good and nice. Hopefully Lotus Desaru will keep it up and I will definitely return to this resort to spend my holiday here.
We are a family of 2 adults, 2 young kids and 1 senior. We’ve been to Desaru for a few times and stayed in different resorts. We were never satisfied. We went to Lotus with a little skeptical, albeit reading good comments in forums. Receptionist was friendly, we were given a room with fallen exhaust fan in the bathroom and asked for a change. No question asked. In the evening we went for dinner at the coffee house late at 9+ pm and the Captain offered our 2 kids free for the buffet dinner. As our kids would usually take only some dessert and hardly any main course. We were very happy with the nice gesture offered by the Captain, thank you. B/f was pleasant too, with appetizing spread and clean. The crowd was extremely heavy on the day we checked out, as it was a Good Friday Holiday but it was in good order. Our kids enjoyed the water playground a lot. There were guards constantly watching at the crowd – very impressive. There were also a few different pools, one of which is very deep (just be cautioned, I think it’s 1.4m or something, well written at the side of the pool). We would highly recommend this resort as it’s the best we have ever stayed in Desaru. Would love to come back.
Good for families with kids not afraid of crowds”
We wanted to try the Desaru area as weekend getaway option despite several reviews of aged and not well maintained hotels. With expectations low, we were in the end positively surprised. We chose the Lotus Desaru among the different regional resorts mainly because of the Water Park since our 4 year old daughter (already an avid swimmer) is crazy for slides. On the long beach that has a few obligatory oil spots, Jetski and banana boat were popular with many of the guests. And there were many guests (including 2-3 corporate team building groups). The hotel is huge with plenty of rooms and we were afraid that the associated large number of people could affect us but there were almost no queues for anything and the hotel organization seems to be well able to deal with crowds efficiently. This probably also played a role for us enjoying breakfast and food there in general. The room was big, aged but clean with not much difference to the mid-range resorts in Bintan.
Superb Hotel, Great staff, Excellent facilities”
we had booked 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights and we were very impressed with lotus desaru beach resort. we had gone at peak time ( chinese new yr holidays) and the lobby was looking like a market with full crowds wanting to check in. i felt that the reception staffs were quite inexperienced as they did not expect a full house on that day. food was great though not superb, morning buffet has nice variety. overall the resort can be rated 4/5 according to me.
An enjoyable gateway”
Staying at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort was a memorable day for me and family. The room was big and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was nice. The ambience is perfect. I would love to come back again to Lotus Desaru next time. Its been a perfect holiday for me and family. I definately will recommend my friends and family to Lotus.
Best short getaway destination”
The food was outstanding with fast and effecient in-room dining service. Me and my friends had a good time with the most delicious local food ever. It was a bit costly though but nevertheless, it was a blast to have a good tasty meal. Dinner at the beach brought memorable moments with delicious local seafood. The Retail Shop was a very good deal. We shopped there quite a number of times. It seemed that we could not get enough on our necessities. Felt like buying all of it. We went to the beach and it was so clean. It was a good experience to visit a nice clean beach once in a while where u cannot get in Singapore. The jetski activity is awesome. I wish to end this review by complimenting all the frontline and service staffs of Lotus Desaru Beach Resort. You have made wonderful memories for all of us. Good job guys :-)
Nothing beats a great service and it's available in Lotus Desaru Beach Resort!!! The staff attended our needs immediately..from baby cots to wheelchairs. It's a great place for family bonding. We had dinner n breakfast at the hotel restaurant. They are superb and very affordable. Thank you for making our stay a pleasant and memorable one.
Great service, good facilities, clean-decent sized rooms”
Went with wife and one child (5 years old). Went by ferry from SG (not too many know of this option). If you do so, request for hotel pickup. Resort is huge, but clean. Many many rooms, so if possible request for one close to reception. Breakfast has good options, restaurant has good options and open pretty much all day. Beach is clean, pool is small but adequate... best to go as a group if with children so that kids have company. Staff are always happy to serve - will recommend and try to go again! Thanks Lotus Desaru!

A place for family getaway!”
We booked 2 bedroom apartment at the hotel and it still feel quite comfortable to accommodate 6 of us which including my wife with our 2 kids and my parents. The resort was big and need some time for us to understand its mapping as it has a few building blocks, a water theme park and the main building. It was quite a distance from our apartment going to the beach area. However, the resort providing a shuttle service to move around the resort if people did not want to walk or drive within its compound. The water theme park was fun for kids, but not the beach. Even though its offer a beautiful scenery, I found that it was not safe for kids and even for adults as the wave was strong and already deep within few meters from the beach. However, people can try other fun activities offered by the resort at the beach area such as banana boat and parasailing. We also had a dinner at the resort's seafood restaurant which located by the beach. The ambience was great and relaxing. It served good seafood with reasonable price too. As for buffet breakfast, I think it was only average with limited options. In summary, I would say it was a good & memorable stay for us at Lotus Desaru Resort.
A pleasure stay, yet flaws need to look at”
Upon arrive, I was greeted with warm welcome and good smile at reception counter. Since we arrive at noon, and the room is ready, the staff allowed us to check in early. The room is spacious but attention to details is really needed, as the room is not up to the standard in terms of cleanliness. The waterpark is OK. An enjoyable moment for my nieces & nephews, especially the Lazy River and the Big Coconut Splash. Food wise, I can say it is awesome! We had a very delicious, tantalizing breakfast. There are a lot of variety of foods to choose from. And your roti canai, superb! But price wise, you need to look at it, as the price is quite high, so guests tend to find food outside of the resort area. Staff wise, yes, I have to admit that you have an excellent workers, even though some of them are foreigners. Good command in English, and good customer service. Overall, I can say that Lotus Desaru Beach Resort really makes my day. And you successfully makes my holiday there worthy.
Great Resort with Excellent Service”
I had booked 3 bedroom suite and stayed there with my wife and 2 kids, and also together with my old parents. The staffs at the reception did my check in were very professional and explained to us all the details that we need to know. I was well informed by the reception staff, that made my stay a memorable one. The security staff are very alert and friendly, My parents enjoyed the most as they are able to move around the resort with the shuttle service provided within the resort.The kids enjoyed the Water Park the most, there were staffs around the pool to ensure the safety. I'm very impressed by the services provided by the restaurant staffs.I've planned to make it an annual trip to Lotus Desaru Resort with my family.
great for children”
Book a single room suite. Bed was on tje 2nd floor which i think is not suitable for young kids going up and down the stairs. Wifi was ok although keep disconecting when u have went out of your room and have to log in back every single time. Staffs was superb always smiling. Water theme park was good for my children. Only complaints tv was those crt type. And the color was not good.. overall will return to lotus desaru beach resort
Value for money and great for groups”
Our stay at the Lotus Desaru was pleasant! Our room was big, we had 3 bedrooms and an extra bed placed in the living area. Although there was the sound of a "dying cat" each time you turn on the faucet or shower but i guess it is hard to avoid when this resort has been around for a while. It is a very large resort so we were located near the front desk (further away from the beach) but there are little shuttles to take us to different parts of the resort and they arrive frequently. The buffet food was good and Saturday BBQ was awesome! Overall, it is a great stay for people who will be spending most of the day by the pool or beach or out on tours and not want to spend the whole day in the room.
Excellent Hotel for Relaxation”
Had stayed at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort on 04-05th Sept 2010 during a Road Trip to Desaru from Singapore with a group of friends. Price wise for our stay was considered cheap, if compared to resorts in Singapore. Staffs were helpful and excellent, hotel room was clean, spacious and fully equipped with kettle, TV, fridge, microwave. Aircon was good too. The only bad side abt my room was the shower knob was spoilt.
The best leisure hotel for family in Desaru”
That was my fourth trip to Lotus Desaru over 3 year period (i.e. since its opening). Good place for family with young children especially those from vicinity area (Johor) who cannot afford travelling long distance due to short holiday. Since no water theme park in Johor area yet, the hotel mini water park and swimming pools become great attraction to the children in this southern region. The beach very clean and well maintained. The dance routine lead by hotel staff during that night was exciting. Now, my children know how to dance 'a go go' style. The room interior was excellent. All electrical appliances worked well. The toilets were very clean. Continue keep up the good maintainance. The tram service travelling around hotel area is a good attraction. My kids enjoyed the ride. The breakfast buffet is average. May be the rooms were fully booked that day, so a lot of people. The food finished really fast. Have to wait some time for food replacements. Generally, our stay there was a good memory for my kids. Congratulation. Keep up the good service. Thank You
