Lotus Desaru Beach Resort3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Been here with family. Infant, adult, parents. It's basically a place where everyone can enjoy themselves. The main point here is the water theme park. Don't expect anything fancy, the most "thrilling" ride is the slide. Go for a few round and enjoy. The room is really good, get a family room, come with a living room, kitchen, and 2 seperate bedroom with attached bathroom. The room is maintained well, a plus point for Lotus Desaru. Food wise, I didn't go for any of the restaurant here, if you plan to go out for dinner, the choices are not much as well, so be prepared. Conclusion, if you plan for a family or couple trip, a near getaway, this is the place that I will recommend.
First time driving there from singapore. Took 2 hrs from second link. Ms Eda from reservation department was of great help. Thumb up for her service. Booked a one bedroom suite at S$85nett which is very value for money. Rented a float at RM8 for my kids to use it in Lazy River but after 5 mins my kids came back telling me that Lazy River is closed from 12pm to 3pm. Why staff can't informed us about this? I insist on having a refund but seem like they are not too happy about it. Had dinner and bfast in the hotel. Food is decent but service staff was marvellous. Since only paying such a low price for the room u cannot expect too much
Is good place to stay. The staff so friendly. The hotel area very clean. There's an activity for kids. I love the food at Teratai café. They also have seafood restaurant. The gym is facing to swimming pool, It's recommended to stay.
I think the resort is alright. A good place for a short getaway. Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite near the lobby. Resort had many activities for all. There is a mini mart near the beach which was quite extensive.
The hotel lobby is very big but only 1 floor without air-conditional (open air concept). The car park is open space without shelter and the weather is extremely hot and the heat will remain inside the car which cause me uncomfortable on it. It's really seem boring city, the crowded is there. There are tourist from China, Philippines, Thailand when I visited there. The room is okay. The gym is very small and limited spaces for the customer to play their gym. The gym location is awful which located in the corridor beside the lobby. Which mean the people walk-by in the busy area will definitely look inside the gym and free show from the gym trainer. The beach is clean but not wide enough, not much people walk around beach because it's seem too small. Water activities: Banana boat, boat parachute, jet-ski, swiming Wave strength: Quite strong due to the beach is slop download to the shore. (I have no idea why they redesign the landscape to higher ground.) The bar (beach) is okay just the table and chair is very dirty, There are sands, dust and dirt on it.... The food is okay. P/S: the customer representative always ask us whether do we have a room in there.(I never been asked before) and what is the definition of house guest by them? They keep on ask did we purchase the ticket bla bla then only can walk into the beach. I felt offended by them. I'll not visit this hotel anymore seem we're not welcome by them.
We booked 1-Bedroom suite, it was very spacious. This was our second visit to resort, a good place to spend a weekend with family and friends. Probably a one stop place with so many activities to choose and have fun, like Water Sports, Snooker, Game Arena, Archery etc., yes its paid but price is nominal. Mini Water park is nice as well, where kids and even adults have lot of fun. There are 2 swimming pool and mostly not crowded, as people will spend time by the private beach. The breakfast was good and decent varieties to choose from. Restraunts are good and food tastes good and not so costly as well. Best is the mini mart within the resort, where you can buy many things and snacks and drinks to munch and have fun by the beach. This was our second stay and will surely come back again for a short get-away and relaxing by the beach. Cheers!
If you love water, you should go to this place. Big swimming pools, banana boats and a beach. Suitable for children and families who love the beach and water games. We had a 2 storey room that looked a little old. Otherwise, it was quite a nice resort.
We stayed 3D2N in third floor two-room hotel resort facing the water lagoon park downstairs. The view from the living room was fantastic. The facilities in the room were good and we enjoyed the outdoor water park. Overall the services provided were good but the food served during breakfast were quite tasteless despite the multitude of variety.
We stayed for 2D1N at a duplex apartment. They provide microwave, kettle, and fridge. Hotel guests are entitled to free entrance to the waterpark. The breakfast was really nice and tasty. it is great for weekend or casual outing with kids. The service was really great and helpful. Especially, I wanted to say special thanks to Lakshmi from Sales and Marketing Dept. She also helped to allocate the room near to the reception block on my request. Appreciated her assistance for answering all my queries during my trip. Overall was excellent.
Huge but dated hotel, however for its value and with your expectation as basic malaysian hotel, it is great for weekend or casual outing. I stayed there for 4 times. First, Rooms, they are huge with beautiful two story for single rooms and single story for 2/3 bedroom apartments. All are not carpeted, expected of beach hotels. Expect basic services and you have to find your own enjoyment. Second, the hotel has several amenities, pool, water slide, kids water park, restaurants, beach bar, water sport outlet, grocery shop, and several other function rooms and karaoke etc. I found beach bar is cool to enjoy especially in the evening and night. Third, the beach, water is just so so, but the seafloor is shallow and can walk to very far at low tide. Jet ski and banana boat etc are a little expensive for its guests profile so not many people enjoy it most of the time. The hotel of this size should have people queuing for turn but it is not. Fourth, the negatives, the hotel is huge and rooms are far away from beach, it is not a relaxing trip to and from rooms. They have buggies driving around, but still not a good feeling of not within easily reachable to amenities. After swimming you have to carry seawater and sand with wet clothes all the way to far flung rooms on tiring legs. Same story for breakfast and dinner times.
