Desaru Coast, one of Malaysia’s highly-anticipated premium integrated resort, will be fully operational in 3 months’ time!

Overlooking a 17km pristine, secluded beach with sparkling clear waters, Desaru Coast is a 15.8 square-meters tropical haven in the southern-eastern region of Johor, away from the humdrum of city life. It is easily accessible via road, air and sea and offers a wide array of amenities. From four world-renowned hotels to one of the world’s largest water theme park, Desaru Coast is perfect for a relaxing family getaway or a BFF staycation. Besides the Els Club Desaru Coast, a 27-hole and 18-hole golf course that is already up and running, the rest of the developments are slated to be unveiled in stages.
