‘Don’t Join The Crowd’ holds the message from the nation’s largest integrated resort hub, Desaru Coast. With safety and new norms central to its operations, the resort urges holidaymakers and travellers to avoid densely populated areas and instead take advantage of the destination’s expansive space totalling to some 3,900 acres across 17km of pristine beachfront.
The wide-open space is the ideal spot to gain peace of mind while indulging in a holiday away from the city – in some of Malaysia’s finest hotels no less. By limiting capacity across these and with extra safety precautions in place, visitors to Desaru Coast are ensured of their wellbeing.
The Stay Well @ Desaru Coast programme goes above and beyond SOPs set by the government, including heightened sanitisation and security, conducting health screenings, contactless check-in and room entry options, and regular briefings and training for staff.
“The operating landscape for travel and hospitality has evolved with greater emphasis on health and safety precaution measures. This shared social responsibility is critical to resuscitate the domestic tourism industry while promoting safe travel behaviour and experience,” said Roslina Arbak, Managing Director of Desaru Development Holdings One Sdn Bhd.
To entice travellers, a pair of holiday packages have been put together as part of the ‘Don’t Join The Crowd!’ campaign, with savings of up to 60% up for grabs.
The Sun-tastic Getaway starts from RM689 and includes a two-day, one night stay for two adults and two children with curated activities within the destination and around greater Desaru. The packages bundle rooms at the destination’s three premium hotels – Hard Rock Hotel, The Westin and Anantara, inclusive of resort credits of up to RM100 to be used within the destination.
Meanwhile, for golf enthusiasts, Desaru Coast’s Golf Galore promotion is offered on twin sharing basis and starts from RM799 per person for a two-day, one night stay. The package includes hotel stays, two days of unlimited golf at The Els Club Desaru Coast Ocean Course as well as unlimited access to the nine-hole Academy Course and the driving range.
Catering to all types of holidaymakers, Desaru Coast is also home to one of the world’s biggest waterparks, holds numerous wellness programmes as well as non-contact sporting activities and edutainment programmes – all of which have been incorporated into the holiday packages.
Hope on an All-Terrain-Vehicle, explore a mangrove, trek at Panti Forest Reserve and so much more – there’s plenty here to keep even the most discerning of traveller happy!
