Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort - Desaru
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"My friend and I were cycling in Johor and needed a place to sleep around Desaru, we found a promotion at Desaru Tunamaya which seemed decently priced (Rm.67++) and the reviews were good so we decided to stay there. Upon our arrival, first pleasant surprise: the place is extremely easy to find. Then during check-in and without asking for anything: we got upgraded! Room was on ground floor with direct access to the pool area, and had two beds (1 king size and 1 single). The room was very clean and well furnished, quiet and comfortable so we had a great night sleep. The pool is okay (a bit small and super crowded with children) but the beach is just right there and they have someone to clean it every morning. The breakfast buffet was good and overall the staff were very nice and professional. I think the thing we enjoyed the most was the barbecue area near the beach where you get a huge plate of BBQed meats for Rm.40 and you can order drinks, beers etc. I would definitely recommend staying there, the other resorts look just as good but I can only talk about what I know: Desaru Tunamaya Beach & Spa Resort is a nice resort, I definitely will come back!"

Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"Staffs - Very friendly and helpful Price - Worth it. Room - Great view of the waterpark, spacious, clean, big toilet too. We booked a family room that comes with 2 queen size bed. their queen bed is slightly smaller than our normal queen bed. Food - a few food outlet. There's Mexican restaurant, lobby lounge and local restaurant. breakfast, great spread. shuttle bus - free. but they will only shuttle in desaru coast area only. which most of the place is not yet ready. Transport - you need to get the staff to call cab for you. No uber/grab. The best is to have your own transport. Cos there will more food area and shop at desaru utama or small mall. Nothing much around hard rock hotel. Most shops are not ready. Overall - Nice hotel and great. Will be back once all rooms category are open. "

Amansari Hotel Desaru
Bandar Penawar,Desaru - View on map
"We went to Desaru for a surfing trip, and we stayed in this hotel. To go to the surfing beach, you have to arrange for a taxi to pick you up at the hotel. The hotel is just beside a mall and some restaurants. On one of the levels, there's a bar (where they have a duo singing) and a play room where you can play billiards. The breakfast is nice as well and the place is peaceful."

The Westin Desaru Coast Resort
Desaru Beachfront,Desaru - View on map
"The hotel is situated along a stretch of resorts in Desaru. It is about 2-3km away from the Desaru Coast Adventure Park. There is a free shuttle bus service to loop between the hotels and the park if you are not driving. The hotel staff are very polite and helpful with a smile. We felt very welcomed. The room is spacious and all the amenities very well-thought of. The infinity pool though it a tad small but it has a great view to the beach about 500m away. The spread complimentary breakfast buffet is excellent and everything tasted good. This hotel/resort is a great place to unwind and enjoy the down time. It was a pretty that we only stayed for 1 night. We will be back definitely in the future!"

Hotel Desaru Penawar
Bandar Penawar,Desaru - View on map
"They provide free breakfast in the morning. Although there is VERY limited option of food, but for me is more than enough and value for money! Location is very strategic where the mall is nearby and alongside of hotel got plenty of restaurant. the ayam penyet restaurant at the other end of the building is da bomb. Hotel room is clean with perfect amenities. Definitely suitable for short term business traveler."

More about Desaru

This small coastal town on the east coast of Malaysia was once a popular resort destination for international tourists and locals from the big cities. These days, one of the best things about Desaru is that it is a lot less developed than most other resort destinations, allowing a chance to relax on a fairly pristine beachfront. There are several regularly scheduled buses and boats that bring visitors into Desaru, so access to the small town isn’t very hard even for international travelers.

In addition to a quiet and peaceful Public Beach, the Desaru beachfront is also home to a popular Fishing Museum that should not be missed by anyone visiting this area. The beach is a great destination for sunbathing, snorkeling, and even swimming as most of the beachfront is fairly shallow water that lends itself to great water activities. The entire beachfront is open to the public, another advantage of the low resort development.

While in Desaru, take advantage of the day trip opportunity to Kota Tinggi, and explore around Kota Tinggi Waterfall. Whether taking time to explore the unique attractions of Desaru, or spending time exclusively on the beach, this small and quiet town is a great place in which to take a few days’ rest.
