I have been residing in JB since 2002 but never really explored Desaru, except a tourism shot that I did with couple of friends in 2005. So the chance came over a weekend due to a renovation that schedule to happen at home. Me, my family and a close family friend booked 2 X 1 Bedroom suite. We literally booked... More

The restaurant and lounge a bit small. The Muttu at restaurant only know making ' plan roti prata' was not impressive... Having short distance walk at beach evening is very... More

We stayed in the 2 apartment room at block S which is very near the lobby and funfair. There are many activities in the resort which includes an additional fee. I tried out paintball and pool. There is a free buggy service in the resort so you do not need to walk much. The water park in my opinion is... More

Our 1st stay was in Dec 2012. The resort improved a lot, with reception shifted to the central (used to be a 'not so fun' recreation area. By using Q no for yr services & plenty of seat, it greatly improve its customer service (used to see guests pushing to be in the Q to check-in/out). There are quite a... More

Although rooms abit run down(doors cannot lock), overall stay was pleasant. The resort is really big and they have tons of rooms! But they do have a shuttle that can... More

The water park is small but good enough to substain below 10 year old kids. Food wise, I would recommend seafood restaurant beside their sea view hall. Food is definitely more delicious. Service is kind of fas for check out but not their check in . Took about an hour due to heavy crowd and events there. I would like... More

To be frank, I did not have high expectations having read some of the reviews, but it was fairly cheap and my family has not been to Desaru. Upon reaching, being the first timer there, I was initially not sure where the lobby was due to lack of signage to direct, but there's was a security personnel who kindly pointed... More
