The One&Only Desaru Coast Resort of Southeast Malaysia is Finally Open

Inspired by the beauty and traditions of the nation’s enchanting southeast, the resort showcases fresh exotic delicacies with flair and flavour, cultivates wellness with new and ancient local wisdoms, and curates adventures through warm tropical waters. Promising optimal privacy and personalisation, with health, safety, and wellbeing as the utmost priority, the resort offers a vast variety of standalone suites complete with generous outdoor-indoor spaces, sumptuous bathrooms and private plunge pools for spontaneous dips.

From rainforest to ocean, the Desaru Coast suites are framed by stunning horizons of the South China Sea. Its most prized, four bedroom Villa One, represents the pinnacle of One&Only living. Set over two levels with a 27 meter pool, home study, and private spa room, alongside dedicated butler and chef services, Villa One accommodates up to 8 guests at a time, featuring intricate Malaysian details mixed with soft luxury.

Capturing the hearty, honest flavours of the Mediterranean, the resort’s Ambara restaurant transports guests from the sun-soaked beaches of Greece to the sand-swept landscapes of Lebanon. Truly a field-to-fork experience, Ambara utilizes the locally sourced and fresh seasonal produce, providing an extensive menu of woodfire-baked breads, mezze platters, grilled meats and seafood. Worth an estimated $843 to $11,880 per night, the Desaru Coast Resort and its signature experiences are currently open for booking.
