Previously overlooked by the nation’s glitterati, in just three short years the Desaru Coast has become the go-to destination for those seeking a luxurious getaway without having to travel outside of the country. The resort is stretched along a 17 km pristine beachfront near the southern tip of Johor overlooking the South China Sea. With its white sands, lush rainforests and world-class resorts and golf course, the Desaru Coast promises the ultimate tropical escape and adventure. Impressively, it has even found its way to Time magazine’s list of 100 World’s Greatest Places in 2021.
