I've just returned from a short getaway - a solo one at that - to Lotus Beach Resort in Desaru, which was previously known as the Impian resort. It was renovated some years ago and had the name changed. I appreciated the hotel e-booking service, which was fast, friendly and efficient. Upon checking in, I realised it was bicycle friendly...

Getting to the Lotus Desaru Beach resort was a breeze given the new Senai-Desaru highway with a toll charge of Rm 8.80 Checking in and out was a long wait since the speed of service is below par. The self-service welcome drink eases the afternoon heat. I had a double storey room with a King size bed in Block G515.... More

We got a groupon deal for $95 per pax and $55 for child w/o bed. Includes coach from SG Flyer, desaru fruit farm tour, lunch buffet and fruit fiesta there, and 1N stay at Lotus Desaru. Arrived at the hotel at 3:15pm. Check-in was efficient. The buggy/shuttle service drove us and our luggage to our room at block G. It... More

The hotel room and facilities are just nice for weekender and suitable for family. The hotel is relatively well maintained. It was giving us a laid back feeling away from the city. The best feature of this hotel is its location that takes only an hour from Singapore to arrive! There is a clean and nice swimming pool separating from... More

Let me start off by saying that this is the best place to stay in Desaru. But do not expect a 5 star service and accommodation standard and you will not be disappointed. Lotus Desaru is an apartment-styled resort without the frills or room service. The cleanliness of the rooms are bearable but be prepared to accept that the furniture... More

Lotus Desaru could satisfy the thirst of every age in one family. My husband and I visited the spa; the Indian oil massage was impressive and very relaxing. While we were there for an hour, my 10 year old son had a good time with PS2 and the video games in the kids club. The family joined back for a... More

Lotus resort reminded me of mass residential apartment. The building, the lift and the rooms are so unlike a resort. Once you check in, there will be no porter to help you to your room. It is a self service. The water theme park is huge but is very, very crowded. Food served during the breakfast would satisfy Asian palates.... More
