Lotus Desaru – a retreat close by.

Ever heard of the saying “home away from home”? There are moments that, while you’re on a holiday or a  retreat, you’d get a little homesick and wishing for some semblance of home. There’s a resort not too far away which we think might fit the bill if you’re looking for a retreat, that’s home away from home!

Lotus Desaru Beach Resort is a mere 1.5 hours drive from Johor Bahru which is very near Singapore. Guests can take the option of taking a leisurely drive along the scenic coastal road, or take a cab from within Johor Bahru, or a ferry service that departs from Changi Ferry Terminal in Singapore.

Boasting a total of 700 one, two, three and four bedroom apartments, Lotus Desaru provides plenty of choices for rooming opportunities, and two bedroom apartments onward have a separate living & dining area, which can be useful for informal meetings & brainstorming sessions if that’s your preferred way for discussions. For a more formal set-up, the resort can host up to 500 delegates with their 11 meeting rooms available for your team building session, workshop needs or conferences.

To unwind, the Lotus Desaru offers plenty of recreational activities and even their very own water theme park! Take your time to stroll along the beach, or have a go at the slide at the Water Park or paddle a kayak out along the shore for some sea action. A short distance away from the resort is a must-go for every tripper to Desaru, the Ostrich farm. Take the ostrich egg challange – stand with your full body weight on 2 eggs, and not break them.
