One&Only Desaru Coast
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.

The Chenot Spa is a partnership between One&Only and leading science-based health and beauty experts, Chenot. Chenot's concept is to care for the "whole self" by understanding an individual's needs in relation to key pillars of physical health and fitness, emotional wellbeing, nutrition and aesthetics - then Chenot will tailor integrated holistic treatments and programmes to you. The spa area is comprised of 10 treatment rooms, a cooling pool, steam room and relaxation pavilion, among other health and wellness-focused spaces.

It’s a little bit Penang, a little bit Cameron Highlands, and a little bit something new. Ipoh is a transitional destination on peninsular Malaysia worth a visit.
