I booked this hotel through agoda. I never realized that i actually double booked the room. The receptionist wasn't really that helpful, she asked us to call agoda and cancel one of the bookings or else they gonna charge our credit card. Mind u, no maxis or digi reception there and their wifi was absolutely useless, u cant even log... More

We had our training program held here recently and i think it was okay. The reason I give 3 stars it because I have high expectation when viewing the pictures in their website, however it does not really turn up what is really was. Kind of dissapointed Room: The room space is big but with limited light access. This will... More

The room was very comfortable, big space, value for money and good smell. All room facing seaview. Reception staff very welcoming and pleasant. Breakfast staff very helpful and ensured guest comfort and neat. Beautiful landscape and truly relaxing holiday. Sleeping with the sound of breeze at night really make myself so in love with Desaru Tunamaya. Thanks to all staff... More

This Hotel was refurnished and reopened in Sept 2015. We went there for Christmas eve. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. What we enjoy is the balcony over looking the sea front and pool side. The beds were firm and comfortable. Breakfast and meals were average. The Christmas Eve buffet dinner was not up to standard for the price... More

Disgusting. Close and clean up! Then consider opening to bookings! Was there a week before their so called Grand Opening? Please! Nothing was complete! Everywhere I turn was filth. Breakfast? Don even bother getting up for this.Even hospital food is more decent. I will never return! Major disappointment . They should be ashamed of themselves thinking they are ready!

This is a hotel that offers good value for the price it charges. I am a fairly fussy traveller. My minimum standards are usually 4 stars but more often than not, I would happily pay for 5. Unfortunately, owing to health issues, I could neither fly nor tolerate lengthy drives. I had no choice but to look towards the beaches... More

Frankly we did not have much expectation of this hotel since it was the first time we stayed here and being a last minute booking we did not really have time to read all the reviews. But it turned out to be a very pleasant stay. ALL the rooms faces the sea, which is not the case with some other... More

This is a newly refurbished hotel in Desaru. To be fair, the hotel under the new Tunamaya management is not officially opened yet when we visited. We can't help but compare this to Desaru Lotus, which we usually visit. 1) The service is excellent! The front desk staff greeted us in English and very politely. Our luggage was also delivered...

My family and I had a pleasant stay at Desaru Tunamaya Resort. This resort is formerly Desaru Damai Beach Resort. I guess a new management took over the resort. The building has a fresh coat of paint. The room that we stayed is almost newly furnished, except the doors, windows and bathroom titles. The bed sheet and pillows are clean... More
