I believe the resort is ongoing renovation and upgrading as notice a lot of contractor repairing and upgrading rooms and surroundings. Entrance: Nice grand view while entering the resort, receptionist was helpful with the booking, notice 2 turtle Swimming inside... More

Stayed in junior suite in this resort for 3 days 2 nights. Room is cosy and nice. Toilet flush needs to be repaired as its leaking non stop at the lower level bathroom. It will be a plus if the rooms has free wifi. There's a friendly Penang-kia (Penang guy) at lobby cafe. He makes nice coffee and tea. I... More

We're here last weekend for a short break away from JB City.Good facilities for family with toddler, and for a peaceful enviroment. The bellboy is very friendly and the frontliner offers great help. Looking into the room, some defects found. I have few to list down but i believe that the management will definately have monthly checking. ☺ Overall. The... More

I came back to this resort after 6 years. Still quite the same. Spacious and clean rooms. Solid beeakfast buffet. It might get crowded if the hotel is full but it was a quiet Jan weekend. My friends from Switzerland enjoyed 3 days/2 nights away from busy SG. The pool is nice. There is a bar with music in the... More

Stay in this hotel for 2 nights. The experience is fantastic - The south china seaview from my room is gorgeous. Room is full of amenities, a great value for money beach resort. The hotel lawn is kept in good length which makes you feel like walking on carpet. Swimming pool was big and crowd are very gentle. I like... More

Stayed two nights here. Didn't know there is this hidden gem in Desaru. The atmosphere and layout are very resort oriented. Did a two hours Spa and loved it. We visited in a weekdays and the place is a heaven as it was quite and peaceful. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. Will definitely recommend to my countrymen.

I stayed in Lotus resort next door and walked here along the beach as my Friend is staying here. I regretted not staying in Pulai as soon as I set my eyes on the resort ground. The private beach is nice and relaxing with swing and traditional cabana liked shelters along its beach. Of course the sea water is brown.... More

Stayed here for a night on 1 January 2016. First impression at the lobby was that the place was simple and clean. It all went downhill from there. However, the receptionist was clueless. Friendly, but clueless. We arrived early and had to wait for the rooms to be ready - this was understandable, but after two hours and repeated checking... More

Stayed here for a night (30 dec 2015) with husband and two kids in a superior room facing the pool. Once a very nice and excellent hotel before it had a change in ownership and undergone a major renovation. The rooms simply do not fit the standards anymore even after they did something with the flooring and finishes. Amenities were... More

Who design this resort?! The building layout looks like a low cost flat. Its actually creepy as you walk in. It's obvious they were cutting cost with the materials used during construction. It also needs a fresh coat of paint. The place has potential but it's really run down. The rooms are huge, bathroom great. It's good for family, but... More
