The Lotus Desaru Resort is a popular resort amongst local and foreign tourists. We experienced excellent service from staff at reception, restaurants and housekeeping. The seafood restaurant also serves great food and with live music at night, it made our night very enjoyable. We stayed at a 3 bedroom unit and it is very spacious. The only thing we need... More

As the resort is not a very far drive from Singapore, i think it makes it a place suitable for a simple getaway from the city. I remember going there on a public holiday weekend and the resort is packed with people, resulting in quite a wait for the checking in. But I suppose it should be pretty quick on... More

We went for an overnight trip over the National Day holiday, and it was a pleasant drive and check in experience. We got in late, and they accommodated our request for late check in and check out. The water park and pools were ok. There are a lot of activities for every age. It is definitely a family oriented place.... More

Nice family hotel, third time staying at this hotel, first two times staying at the loft apartment, this time 2 bedroom. Loft apartment was okay except that there is no TV in the bedroom. 2 bedroom apartment is quite old, utensils provided is dirty especially inside of the kettle. Breakfast spread is okay except that the utensils are dirty.

Check in a bit slow , but happy with the spacious room, nice view and helpful housekeeping staffs.Young kids enjoyed themselves especially the lazy river. Staffs are generally helpful and with a smile on their face. Can actually pop in without bringing anything along as there are shops and restaurants inside the resort .
