Yet another last minute decision to drive to Desaru and naturally over the CNY break, there were no rooms left. Thankfully there's Pelangi Balau Resort with one room left (if u can wait for housekeeping). The reception was working hard to please their neighbouring visitors and we were given our room keys ASAP. So we trodded to the last block... More

We cannot even sleep and at 12pm, we rushed to reception to asked for another room but only get a small bottle of mosquito... More

A nice place to relax with an outdoor swimming and wading pool. Be careful when in the wading pool area especially near the water slide area. You may accidentally kick or trip on the extended concrete railing that protrudes in the water area there. Otherwise, it's a nice place to relax and it faces the beach front. Try to avoid... More

Room not as expected. Agreed with the other commentators/reviews that this hotel is not well maintained and not a comfortable place to stay. Supposed to stay for 2 nights however changed my mind on seeing & experiencing the room condition. Not recommended and not worth the rates ( based on market rates). Should give a very reasonable rate based on... More

We stayed here during Ramadan (Muslim's fasting month) because of its cheap promotion rate, MYR 80 (50% off) for Standard Room (without breakfast). However, the room we got was dusty, with cockroach's droppings on the washroom floor. Given the cheap promotion price during weekend, I don't expect much. It will be great if they had done their housekeeping for us.... More
