Unforgettable experiences for guests

Sungai Lebam river cruise, Lebam River kayaking and Fun-fishing tour are centered at Lebam River which is a 20 minutes’ drive away. Guests will be taken on a boat ride to either spot wildlife, kayak through a mangrove forest or do some fishing. These excursions including Belungkor Hill hiking are approximately between 3 – 5 hours long. Coral Islands Explorer and Sibu Island excursions are 9 hours including a two hour dive to Mersing Jetty. Coral Islands Explorer takes you on a tour in Sultan Iskandar Marine Park where you can snorkel (without fins), have lunch and relax at one of the islands whereas the Sibu Island tour takes you to visit a turtle sanctuary and Twin Beach where it is the only place in southern Malaysia that you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset on a stretch on twin beaches.

The Resort prides itself as a holiday destination for families and like-minded guests who are keen to discover more about the wonders of nature in Desaru Coast. Alternatively, The ELS Club Desaru Coast provides the golf enthusiasts with the choice of two award-winning golf courses.

For the guests who prefer to remain around the Resort, there is Desaru Beachlife & Tidepool Discovery which is a walk on the beach at low tide to discover the hidden small creatures that come up to look for food. Be amazed by the patterns on the sand created by Fiddler crabs. Bird watching: Desaru’s Winged Gems is another activity that capitalises on the birds that are seen in Desaru Coast such as Stork Billed Kingfisher, Oriental Pied Hornbill and Crested Serpent Eagle. Guests will be guided by a birding expert to spot these birds. Our Morning and Evening Nature Walks by our Resident Naturalist is a fascinating walk around the property where the names and benefits of the plants and flowers will be explained. Some even have a fable linked to them.

To help develop a love for plants and nature, our Recreation department has arranged for Terrarium Making class on Saturday afternoons. Guests are encouraged to bring their terrarium home as a memento of their stay here.

Wellness workshops has also been introduced recently to inspire people to DIY simple items such as relieve pain balm, coffee scrub and bath bomb. Daily classes are rotated to give guests insights on how to create their own amenities that are almost purity-free. Our regular exercise sessions such as Sunrise Dong Sticks are on weekdays and Yoga sessions are on weekends. Both these activities are on the beach.

The resort’s 111 accommodations comprise of 90 tastefully decorated deluxe rooms in low-rise buildings that overlook the gardens, lagoon and ocean. Thirteen stand-alone double story luxurious one- and two-bedroom pool villas are located around the lagoon. The design draws heavily from traditional kampung houses that are constructed 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. The three- and four-Bedroom Beach Residences offer modern expansive areas with private pool for small families. Some of the Beach Residences have direct beach access.
