The check in was quick as it was a weekday. The person at the reception was aware we had two small kids with us and gave a room in H block, the nearest to the lobby and the beach. Went to the beach bar for lunch and loved the food and ambience. The food needed a little bit more of... More

I was pleasantly surprised by what Lotus Desaru has to offer in spite of some nasty reviews I read on Tripadvisor. Actually I scouted around and even though it is not 'perfect', it is still the best available resort in Desaru. The reception can be a little crowded but what to do when it is a favorite among holiday makers?... More

We came in December which is usually a peak period. As expected, the check-in & check-out ques was long and there are a lot of visitors but not overly crowded. For a family bonding time, this place is just perfect, away from the hustle & bustle of the city, tons of activities to do with your kids, the food is... More

Check-in and Check-out process is super slow, check-in took almost 30 minutes and check-out took almost 40 minutes, this is very bad experience for my Xmas trip! For breakfast buffet are repeated dishes for 2 days (Xmas eve and Xmas), very disappointed. But for the room are unique (duplex), great for couple to enjoy their holiday here.

Check in was a bliss maybe because we came late (5.45pm). Was given a room B125 lower level room facing to nothing (roadside)! Called reception and we were changed to a room at Blk S. Lower floor. We switched to the 2nd room, leave our items & left for dinner without checking the room. Dinner buffet at the hotel was... More

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
