I was here during Xmas eve and Xmas, which not surprising when the hotel received more than the usual number of visitors. Parking was quite a problem as there weren't that much spots. From the carpark, you can take the shuttle to the main building to check in. During check in, the staff was excellent and able to relocate me... More

We stayed on Christmas as a short getaway from the hectic city life. The rooms are unique as they are duplex rooms. The hotel is huge! It has so many rooms in several different blocks and you may use the shuttle bus to get around within the compound. It is no doubt a really great place for family time -... More

Stayed in September'2011 The resort is amazing situated among rain forests and beach of south china sea. I'm not sure whether the beach is the private beach but there is no boundary between resort and beach. In fact there is a small restaurant of resort just 10-15 steps from beach. The resort is clean, have all the facilities. The swimming... More

Its just huge with 700 rooms, mostly occupied during weekends. Despite staff is too friendly and cooperative, you may soon get fade up with crowd if you are looking for quiet and peaceful vaccination. Water park is good,again, if you are used to crowd. Rooms are basic but clean. A perfect place for corporate events or big groups.

It was a last minute planned. We booked the 3 rooms suite(i guess) and it was spacious. I'm gonna talk about all the plus points as you can read from others. For me, the minus points is the registration lobby, restaurants is a bit tad far. plan wise, they should have though it out before building it. buggy transit is... More

This is the first time we visit Desaru as well as this resort. The environment is wonderful. Beach is clean with a nice open air bar by the sea. You may have a cocktail, wine or beer just on the beach with touching on the sand. In the nite there is no activity which dancing performance by 2 cute clowns.... More

Went with my hubby for short getaway and it was a big let down. This resort is much more suitable for families with kids than for couples or for a quiet solo time.

We took the family suite which had 2 rooms. The rooms were clean, although the beds were high, making it difficult for the elderly and little children to utilise. Rooms were dreary with old furniture. Even the cheapest of other resorts are already using flat screen tv. Channels were limited. I tried ordering a cake for hubby's birthday the night... More

Stayed here twice for business trip. The room is good and spacious. As the area is big, the distance to the restaurants, pool and beach is quite far unless you get the blocks near to them. However, hotel provided transport to those places. I ordered a room service on my 1st stay but the mee goreng mamak was awful. Hope... More
