Hotel rooms need a makeover but the view from the rooms is awesome!! Nice surrounding. Nice big pool. Hotel near to the beach. It's perfect to relax and suntanning. Staffs are nice and friendly. Breakfast spread has to be more interesting. Had a bad experience during lunch at Pawana Restaurant. One plate of food is TOO SALTY and the other... More

An exciting and pleasant stay in Tunamaya, Desaru. It was a family retreat with a total headcount of 45 including kids. The stay was pleasant and value for money, especially the arrangements done for us by the hotel management was accurate and suit for the event. Rooms are nice, clean and spacious and are good enough for a family with... More

Good facilities and tranquil atmosphere. However, some facilities are dirty. On the other hand, the staff are very helpful and courteous. When we were eating some tandori chicken bought outside within the premises, one of the hotel staff actually came over and lit a few candles for us! Unfortunately, the toilets are terrible! There were ants and the toilet did... More

The resort is newly refurbished (opened late 2015), and used to be the Desaru Damai Beach Resort. While not bad overall, the resort is pretty basic, with some lapses. I am aware they are not a 5-star resort so shouldn't be judged too stringently, however guests wanting to stay at the Tunamaya would do best to set their expectations right.... More

We needed a quick getaway during the Merdeka holiday, decided to try the newly refurbished resort which is about an hour away from Johor Bahru. Upon arriving, at the car park area, we were not very convinced because the building looks rather gloomy. But we were quickly reassured as we stepped inside the lobby, greeted by the warm and friendly... More

I stayed here on a motorcycle trip. I was very happy that we were allowed to park near the lobby. This provided ease to carry all the gear and stuff. The staff greeted us warmly and check in was a breeze. Remember to have RM100 as deposit. Room was clean and roomy. The view was great. Looking into the beach... More

Check in was fast and efficient. Hotel tired. Room was OK with new bed linen and pillows. All rooms face the sea view. Please be cautious when going out onto balcony as there is a step which is easy to tumble down. Extremely disappointed with restaurant! !!
