My wife, Chin Bee Thoe and I stay at Lotus Desaru Beach Resort and Spa on 14 to 16 May 2022. Apartment itself was aged but room ( R 502 ) was spacious. Breakfast spread with wonderful selection and seafront outlet have many tables; never shortage of seat. Buggy driver and housekeeping staff were friendly and helper. Special thanks to Operation Manager, Mr. Aaron who was helpful,friendly and explaining the resort facilities making our stay wonderful and easy to get around. We will definitely recommed this resort to our friend. Will look forward to come again. Yeo Hung Yong Singapore

Accommodation is clean and spacious (3 bedroom) . Facilities are also clean and well maintained grounds. Food at hotel is tasty and affordable. We spent the 3 days eating in the hotel’s many restaurants. Highly recommend the seafood restaurant. Tom yam and lobster is good. Live music on weekends and alcohol is affordable. Roti canai for breakfast is the bomb. Korean chicken wings and fruit juice towers kept the children happy. Three swimming pools available which helps to disperse the crowds on busy weekends. Special mention on the hospitality extended by the efficient and friendly resort manager Mr Vijaayanathan for making our stay memorable. Would definitely visit again. Highly recommended for family with children. Lots of activities to entertain oneself including outdoor movie screening.

The worst check in ever we have waited for almost 4 hours and no any discount given by the hotel very poor management. Will consider for next vacation. While waiting we ordered food it was terrible as the chicken were half cooked and served with frozen pizza. I wish Gordon Ramsey were here to share his view on lotus food.

We expected this hotel to be a little dated and busy for Hari Raya, however we were still very disappointed. Desaru as a whole basically has nothing to do, so you really want a nice resort to spend most of your time in. Lotus had a sewage smell near one of the pools and main restaurant. The rooms weren’t properly clean and one day housekeeping just didn’t come. Aircon and safety deposit box didn’t work when we arrived but they did quickly sort this. The breakfast was chaos and not well replenished, barely any fruit or western options (if this is what you want). No safe baby highchairs. We ordered room service one night because all the restaurants in the nice hotels were fully booked. It took 2 hours and when it came, they said one of the main meals had run out. They offered no replacement and did not even ring us to tell us there was none left. The beach wasn’t nice sand and very steep with barely any room to put towels down. There were very few sunbeds, especially considering the huge size of resort. The pools were also lacking sunbeds. There’s a large bird cage at the centre crammed with peacocks and other types of birds, very cruel. We were so fed up we decided to leave a night early.

We stayed for 3 nights at Desaru Lotus this week from 10 - 14 January (3 couples) and were impressed by several of the staff. The buggy driver, though a special needs person was the most helpful and friendly guy at the resort. The housekeeping group too was so pleasant and helpful. We asked for change of towels (thinking that our 3 nights stay would not include daily cleaning) and were very pleased that it included daily housekeeping. They were efficient and so happy to do their job. We understand that not a single staff was laid off during the MCO period but were given maintenance and housekeeping duties. Syabas and well done to the management of Lotus. Thank you for keeping all your staff! Indeed this place deserves all the support we can give. Special mention to the Entertainer at the Seafood Restaurant, Raj sang for 4 straight hours without losing his voice! And all the 60s and 70s hits. We sang and clapped along. He should receive more advertisement.
