DESARU, MALAYSIA – Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas will reopen its doors starting July 1, 2020 and is eager to welcome its neighbouring guests from Singapore once the borders allow for tourism travel into Malaysia. Low-rise buildings and stand-alone villas overlook the resorts’ gardens, lagoon and ocean, offering privacy with an infinity pool, full kitchen, and chef and butler service.

Said the hotel’s GM, Mr Christian Gerart: “We foresee some positive response from the Singapore market within the next couple of months for meetings with hopes that there is more flexibility for travel in the near future.”

The hotel was only two months shy since opening when the pandemic forced it to close again. Mr Gerart remains optimistic that the resort will do very well in future as he foresees response from Singapore, Indonesia, China, and in the long haul the European and Australian market.

He said: “Events of the near future will need to adapt and evolve to continue to deliver world class, unforgettable experiences in a forever changed world. After potentially months apart, humanity’s innate desire to be together will spark an event industry renaissance and with Anantara Desaru carrying its name a luxurious resort with a pristine natural beach setting close to Singapore, we foresee favourable response in developing and growing in this sector in the near future.”
 
One of the resort’s unique features is its natural landscape and pristine natural beach, away from the norm of a structured meeting space found in the city. “With the many attractions nearby for activities and authentic and indigenous experience, we can attract the market towards a distinct experience found at Anantara Desaru, while experiencing comfort and class. Apart for our natural resources, the hotel itself has an array of options when it comes to dining or simply relaxing by the pool lounge,” added Mr Gerart.
