One&Only Desaru Coast

One&Only Desaru Coast is a secluded beachfront resort hidden within rainforest that fringes white sands and the lapping South China Sea. Designed by the award-winning Kerry Hill Architects, the property is comprised of 42 suites, two grand suites and one four-bedroom villa, all of which come with private plunge pools. There are also private homes available. Befitting the serene location, hotel amenities are focused primarily around wellness: the Chenot Spa (offering Western and holistic medicine practices as well as pampering treatments), the Pedi and Mani Studio by Bastien Gonzalez, a comprehensive fitness center with a specialist Pilates studio and a multi-court, a sea-facing yoga pavilion and a 50-meter infinity pool. Other hotel facilities include the KidsOnly club for youngsters and One Tribe space for teenagers, plus events spaces and conference rooms. In addition, One&Only guests have access to The Els Club Desaru Coast Golf Course nearby. For dining, guests can enjoy Mediterranean flavors at Ambara, Japanese cuisine at Hoshi, signature afternoon tea at Dusky Monkey, Malaysian-inspired drinks at Essential and Asian barbecue at Ember Beach Club, though there are also private dining experiences for those celebrating something special.

Why We Love This Hotel

Jungle-Wide, Ocean-Deep: One&Only Desaru Coast has the best of land and sea, with pearly white sands against blue-green waves in front of you and luscious jungle foliage behind you - offering seclusion and immersion in nature.

Things to Do: There are plenty of activities available for those who need some adrenaline between sessions at the pool or beach. Tennis and padel is available onsite, as are private lessons in UNESCO-listed Silat Melayu (Malay martial arts), while world-class water sports and a excellent golf course can be enjoyed a short distance away. Youngsters can explore the natural environment with KidsOnly, while teens can hang out at One Tribe.

Holistic Wellness: The Chenot Spa sees One&Only partner with world-leading holistic wellness experts Chenot to provide individually-tailored treatments and programs designed around guests' specific needs.
