Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas Partners with Traveller Made

Located along a pristine 17-kilometre beachfront facing the South China Sea, the resort is honored to be part of a prestige network that creates new travel ideas, highlights luxurious journeys, and provides incentive programs for travelers around the world.

Traveller Made works with an exclusive group of hotels and extraordinary talent of luxury travel designers who require skill and knowledge in the luxury travel sector to provide top experiences for discerning guests who seek high standards when traveling.

Desaru Coast, Malaysia’s rising-star luxury resort destination, is located in Johor Darul Ta'zim  and spans over 16 square kilometres.  It is near Iskandar Malaysia and is easily accessible via a 45-minute drive from Malaysia’s Senai International Airport (JHB) and a two-hour drive from Singapore.  Additionally, visitors from Singapore can travel to Desaru Coast by ferry, followed by a short drive.

The resort’s 108 accommodations comprise 90 tastefully decorated en-suite deluxe rooms in low-rise traditional Malay buildings that overlook the gardens, lagoon and ocean.  They are adorned with indigenous materials and fabrics, such as woven textiles, renowned Malaysian wicker elements and silhouettes of traditional Malay crafts. Thirteen stand-alone double storey and luxurious one- and two-bedroom pool villas are located around a lagoon. Their design draws heavily from traditional kampong houses that are designed to suit the tropical Malaysian climate with floor-to-ceiling windows, slanted carved wooden panels, louvres and vents under the roof, and wide-open doors that allow natural airflow to cool the interior.

Dining at Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas is a gastronomic nod to fresh coastal dining with an array of options ranging from freshly caught seafood to flavours from across Asia and gourmet international dining, to Dining By Design, Anantara’s signature private dining experience in exotic locales.
