One&Only Desaru Coast

Secluded Villas & Suites with Private Butler – Unspoilt Beach and Rainforest Location

Secluded and Magical the Desaru Coast is located on the south-eastern coastline of Malaysia overlooking the South China Seas and surrounded by natural rainforest. The One&Only Desaru is set in 128 acres and is no exception to the One&Only philosophy of Time to Play, Space to Be. 45 Suites and One Villa come with Personal Butlers who encourage guests to embark on incredible adventures be it discovering local wildlife on a jungle trek in the unique landscape, trying water sports, taking to the world class golf courses or participating in cookery or creative classes. For those guests looking to unwind the Chenot Spa has something for everyone from aesthetic treatments to nutrition and wellbeing starting with a Bio-Energetic Check-Up that uncovers exactly what your body needs.  For dining there are three restaurants and one bar serving food that will wow the palette and Ember Beach Club is the place to chill at sunset.



In Our Opinion

One&Only Desaru is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, both in the rainforest on Great Call of the Gibbons Signature Experience and in the South China Seas where the beach and coastline are simply unspoilt.
