It is a weekend getaway, bonding with colleagues. Good customer services especially during the activities that have been arranged by the staff. The surrounding, environment and lodging are clean. The restaurants are equally good! There are more than 1 pool to cater (different areas) for kids and adults. All of us had a blast!

Desaru is about 2hours by car from Singapore (including time taken at the Causeway) and is an easy getaway option. The resort is sprawling and massive - I'm talking Blocks A - S, each block is 4-5 floors worth of double corridors' worth of rooms. So naturally, during weekends and peak periods, it feels like all of Johor AND Singapore... More

Was there with the family last week. Expect well managed chaos as this property is high density. My 2 bedroom apartment was fine. Shuttle services were helpful. Check-in and check-out was surprising efficient. Breakfast was a horror not so much because of the mediocre food but the sheer volume of people. The beach cabanas were lovely but marred by the...

Visited over the weekend with my family of 7. The apartment was spacious and very clean. You have whatever you need within the resort. It is a huge place so even during peak seasons, you will not feel that there is a crowd. The water theme park is very nice and I can spend hours under the falling coconut. The... More

Room is very spacious. We went during ramadhan season . Sahur are provided. They sent it to our room in the 4.3o am. A bit quiet during non- school holidays. The interesting part, it has private beach.

Great experience at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort. Clean beach but can be dangerous to young children to play alone at the beach (Desaru were well known for having the dangerous beach). Even though they have a lot of people, surprisingly the breakfast went smoothly.

I booked the two bed room & I arrived on 20th February 2015. So I parked my car which the car park is almost fully parked! Took the buggy to the reception which is near the swimming pool, it was convenient that the buggy drives around the resort to different locations. Upon checking in, the receptionist was friendly but we... More
