Just to stay 1 night ... so far the room is ok and the balcony floor was old and dirty. For the breakfast buffet is basic and simple. Towels at swimming were so old torn and tattered and stained. Next time will not stay at this hotel again...

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

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
